And where they shall stay till she gets rims


Then I got some more work done on my half hard top project

Ive been hunting down this random loss of power i get time to time with my jeep. I couldnt recreate the problem up until today.

I realized that when the heat is on and it get hot i side the cab, the jeep wants to stall at random. It hesitates, drops rpms then regains itself. Once i switched it to cold, then off, it started to smooth out.

My first assumpution is the ecm getting heat soaked, but i always jump to the worst case. Any other ideas i can look into ?

Does it have ac? Mine did the same thing, and for whatever odd reason it was the compressor clutch stalling it out.

love my jeep

Don't wait on the storm to pass, learn to wheel in the rain.

That looks like a cool proj. What are you planning on plugging the lower back side under the rear window to the tub bottom?

First post in this thread in ages because its been running well and just gets used every day to take my unruly hound for his afternoon ride every day. Don't ask - it's a hound thing. But this is worth sharing on several levels....

Short history: 4.2L with Carter carb rebuilt and tuned to the Nutter about two years ago. Last year a little increase in pinging under load so a little timing adjust.

Two days ago starting to get misfire and stumbling after about 30 minutes driving. Yesterday big misfire and stumbling after the same ride. Wasn't sure if I'd make it the last 1/4 mile home.

Found one problem that didn't fit the symptoms. Electric choke sticks where ever it is placed. Not a big factor because its is HOT here and it happened to be stuck open.

On to the spark plugs. Oh boy! The engine uses oil, so I figured (correctly) that they were fouled and due for a change. But wait! The plugs in the motor were some Champions with the tapered seats. And three were loose. I went and bought some proper Autolites and proceeded to clean the plug pockets of all the spooge that had blown by the threads of the loose plugs before pulling them all. (Spam alert: one of the Harbor Freight air/fluid eductor type spray wands has proven indispensable in cleaning all types of stuff using mineral spririts as solvent).

Gapped and installed the proper plugs and took the hound for a test ride. Back to the smooth running I had before.

Now all that's left is dealing with the sticky choke. And I just happen to have a manual choke cable kit laying around. Plus a Motorcraft 2150. Plus a Weber DGEC 34 with mechanical secondaries. So I gots choices.
