It's an open invitation. Send the email, I'll open the link to download the PDF's. The manual is only for the 87-88 model years.

Hey guys, just wanted to give you all an update on the YJ. I changed the spark plugs yesterday with good old Champion coppers. Started right up just like it's supposed to. Although, the Duralast plug wires I bought just would not fit on the distributor cap. They were way too small. So I ended up using the plugs already on, which were still in good condition.

Then later that night while driving home from work, the RPMs started going wild while in neutral/idling. RPMs range from 1600-2200 while idling now. Any ideas on what is wrong or how to fix it? I'm thinking I might have to bite the bullet and take it to a shop

And again, thanks for all the help and advice everyone. Should be no time until the YJ is running like new!

I had to replace the ISA motor on my '89 2.5l. Don't know for sure but I believe the stepper motor on your 4.2l does the same thing. You might look into it.
