Ok Folks, as some of you know, I've just finished with my 95 yj to use as a daily driver. As I took it out for it's victory drive around the community, I noticed it was VERY under powered. It's a rebuilt 2.5L, 5 speed with 31" tires. She's real slow on take off. RPM's are pretty low " I think they are low"
I'm not an expert. I have to drop down to 2nd for some of the small inclines in the area. on flat road, I can get it up to 48-52MPH and that's as fast as I have gotten her. Just asking what could it be?
Is it gears?
the moon not being aligned with mars?
Does it run the same cold as it does when warmed up? The sensors really only come in to play after it reaches operating temperature. I would first look for a vacuum leak, especially around the intake manifold.
EAB, it runs the same at operating temp as it does cold.
I'm at the station today so I'm gonna check the codes out tomorrow when I get home.
I should mention that I do have a screaming demon coil and live wires with big gap plugs on it, just thought I should mention that.
Also, she's VERY cold natured, takes a bit to get her to start and after she's been run for a bit and sits for a few minutes she is slow to start.
Not sure if it could be a timing issue, what do y'all think?
It's not gears, when my 2.5 YJ was on 31's I could go 65+ on the freeway on the flats w/o much problem. Now when I got to inclines it did suffer but never on the flats, it's no racer but I agree with the others you have something else going wrong.
I can quit drinking anytime I want, but hey I'm no quitter :)
