98 JGC Laredo from one problem to the next
I have a 98 JGC Laredo I6 4.0 recently I had a problem with not spark issues so I replaced the distributor, button, plugs, wires, coil pack, Distributor Pickup Assembly, Crankshaft sensor and after all that we finally get the jeep to give us a check engine light. we checked the code and it called for a new ASD relay. we changed it and it now sparks.
the new problem is now the jeep refuses to stay started. First started out with a miss after we put the ASD relay but now it will idle for a minute or 2 the shut down. i can get it to stay up a little bit longer if i lay the gas pedal on the floor. I found that it will die quicker if i turn the wheel or when it warms up. When it does shut down it is a violent shut down and sounds like engine just dropped out of the bottom of jeep.
I would appreciate and ideas anyone would have on this issue. I really like my jeep, however after today I am starting to second guess my loyalty to it.
