MPI Fuel System Problems?
I'm looking for a little advice before I purchase a new fuel pump.
Currently the Jeep won't start. Before it stopped starting it was acting like it was running out of fuel despite a full fuel tank, just filled it up yesterday. Last week it did a very similar thing cranks, tries to start and then sputters and dies. I replaced the fuel filter. THe problem disppeared until today. When it runs, if you push the gas the tries to die and smells real bad. The exhaust pops and the engine generally runs like ***. Before it got to the point where it died, it was drivable if you slowly pushed on the gas, if you tried to give it any more throttle though it would bog down and act like it was running out of gas. This is an I6 Fuel Injected. I've replaced the fuel filter, spark plugs, checked the distributor cap (it was a little dirty so I cleaned it. I've also cleaned the air filter. I think it sounds like a bad fuel pump or mebbe I've got some junk in my gas tank that's clogging my filter again.
Am I on the right track? Should I buy a new fuel pump? Should I be looking at other things? Aside from taking it to a mechanic what are some tests I can do to narrow down the actual problem.
Thanks for the future use of your brains.
