Or you can sell it to someone who has a little more patience.

I'm always in the market to buy another jeep. You are a little far away though.

Ya California is far from close, is it patience or more $ ?

I think patience and proper trouble shooting

zombiepirate 09-01-2013 02:09 PM

Patience is not a prob proper trouble shooting has been done if you search my posts you will find I have been searching and picking the brains of many of the members here, along with my Haines repair book for weeks Patience is not a issue and $ is not, I just hate to waste it.

Teenage years left many years ago, with age comes wisdom the wisdom to ask, Hay do these panties fit my head?

Lets not forget that insurance fraud is a felony can ship that yj to me. I will give her the love she needs.

Oh, we've all been at that point, but I don't think anyone here would *actually* commit ins. fraud. I always leaned towards parking in a bad part of town or, my favorite: fire!!!! Burn her! She's a witch!!! Oh, wait, wrong movie.

I got more response from this post but still no hay!! I know!! what the problem is. there will be no ins fraud, the jeep is not worth doing that or the extra cost of coverage.:nono: But no more Mr nice guy !!!

Time to treat it like a jeep drive it hard, like it was stolen and put it away wet as it is going to rain all week and put in a new fuel pump while it drip dries :umbrella:

Hey zombie, I thought you had it figured out. Is it driving ok now?

Perstanace pays off
Nop Problem still exists, Well not today due to I dropped my tank to install a new pump That I got at advanced auto this morning then home I went on a empty tank to change it, ran out of gas as I turned in my driveway and coasted into the garage :tea: So no need to drain tank, HAY all my bolts came out and nuts also much to my surprise. What I found as soon as I dropped the tank is two things I myself and no one else thought of. But first let me back up Sawduste lead me to the fuel pressure reg witch worked for a few days, then back to same old, so for the hell of it I returned the reg for a new one. well when I removed the first new Reg I noticed that the inner o-ring had a nick in it. so I very carefully installed the new one o-ring first then Reg still no better So OK now: confused: here I sit this morning broken hearted hope to **** but only farted :shhh: My time to think :cool: My thoughts were, OK new Reg, OK for a few days then bad my thought was the new reg stressed the pump even more and made it worse just me thinking here. so back to what I found the first was dry rotted rubber fuel lines, Then after inspection ah ha pin holes in the sending unit fuel line tubes. Back to parts store to return pump I Bought this morning and order a sending unit complete w/pump & strainer. now advanced new pump was $112.60 there whole unit was $315.00 and 9 days out, so J/B wield :thumbsup: But first I went to O-Riley auto parts There sending unit with pump and strainer was $146.00 2 days out:D dam order me 2 :nono: just one so I'm on hold until Wednesday I'm thinking the pin holes and rotted lines were a big factor pulling air and bleed off . So with all that and time to clean things up and do some undercoating. I am in hope when I put it back together things are A-OK then I will post and let any one know what I learned today

Que89YJ 09-02-2013 06:49 PM

I actually thought it was the pump and not the regulator.He nailed the fuel pressure problem but regulator is almost always failing high pressure and the pump is usually low pressure. The fact you got those bolts out easy means the po must have pulled it at one point for an issue. Keep us posted.

zombiepirate 09-04-2013 04:49 AM

Yesterday I installed the new sending unit complete with new pump and fuel lines. This morning :mad: still hard start had to cycle key 4 times before it would start, I had no cel until after I had turned it over then it came on and I still have a issue WTF :confused:

zombiepirate 09-04-2013 04:52 AM

Now I am at a loss don't know where to go next ?

The time now is 11:15 PM.
