Hey guys, looking for some help;
I had a problem with my jeep a little while ago that required me to change the starter and starter solenoid.
That got the jeep running. I pulled out of where I had it stored, and the jeep died on me. Found out I was out of gas. Put a couple gallons in her, and got her to a store and filled up the tank.
Next thing I know, whenever I have her at idle for a long period (couple minutes), she dies.
Also, I can drive it down the road just fine, but whenever I am not actually pushing in the throttle, the engine stalls.
I can be driving down the road fine, but when I push in the clutch to coast to a stop, she dies almost instantly.
I have found that if I let her idle and hit the gas once, it will rev the engine, come down, splutter some, and die.
It will start up immediately after dying, usually without a problem.
Ever since I bought her, it has taken at least 3 tries when cold to get her started. Pump pump pump, crank, pump pump pump crank, pump pump pump start. I don't have that problem after she has run for a while.
Reading the forums, I got bad : EGR valve, fuel pump, gas, carb or vacuum lines.
Can anyone narrow it down for me? It's very embarrassing having to start it up at every single stop light/sign.
I replaced the fuel filter just last night, but that made no difference.
I was thinking bad gas maybe? She ran fine after changing the starter, and I didn't have a problem till a little after putting in the gas from a can and a store I never go to.
If it is bad gas, is there any way to get it working without having to drain out all of the gas? I filled her up, and don't have anywhere to store almost 20 gallons of gas
Thanks in advance!
