4.0 stalls shudders and misfires in reverse only.
my 04 wj 4.0 stalls and misfires in reverse only. I was backing up a hill in town and it wouldnt go hardly, so i pushed the gas harder and it threw a code p0205. i scanned it. then i checked the wires to the injectors and saw nothing. its making it run rich when it shudders. but if i dont hit the gas its fine it will idle out of a parking spot and not miss. Like i said its only in reverse. I took it on the road and power braked it a bit to see if it would in drive gears, but it did not miss, the tire just spun. I have no clue what to check now. I even thought maybe fuel pump assy or filter but when i hold the brake and not allow it to even move it still stalls in reverse only. Maybe a TC issue? im sure its electrical seeing how its only in reverse gear.
Ive searched for 3 days and still cant find a answer. IM hoping its not a bad lifter. i dont have a constant taping yet but one that comes and goes when at and idle, like waiting in line or stoplights. just put in seafoam and will watch that issue hopefully clear up or im gonna be out 700 for parts to repair the lifters and ect parts.
