I can't cone over this weekend as I'm somewhat broke and I work unfortunately.

I know about a month ago it stopped for about 2 weeks and all I know of what I did was unplug the battery about 2 times in a day.

Hell it could be the cap, rotor, wires and plugs. Gas I use is Texaco, shell, rebel.

If tht injector is leaking, it could be super rich at idle, then under higher rpm and pressure, it may work correctly. If it has a partial blockage same deal except lean not rich. Both can cause backfire. With it being only one cylinder, it makes it a little easier to diagnose.

What year is it again? I have a DRBIII scantool that can test individual components on Chrysler vehicles. It's badazz! Hit me up if you're free on a weekend or in the early afternoon, we'll test it with it if you want.

OBA is up and running! Just need to trace down a small leak(no big deal) and tidy up the wiring an air lines. Perhaps bunny coul help, need tie wraps for that. Speaking of bunny, hope he's ok, hasn't been on here for a while.

I think all that young open rear stuff over stimulated him. He just needs to take it easy for a while.

Sorry man, I've of no help on that one...


Off topic though, think about this everytime you fill up at the Herbst stations or toss some coins in their machines!
Notice there's a few pages...

I stumbled on that during conversation here at work while talking with a coworker about my experience getting to check out their toy box in Huntington Beach a few years back.

Here I sit in my truck with the AC running listening to music and jeepforuming while I burn the extra 15 minutes I have between estimates.

On a side note I've realized all the 7am estimates I have are always at least 40 minutes from my house. Gotta love leaving the house at 6am......ugh.

Puck just ask I have some experience with carbs and it sounds like powr knows even more. I'm sure we can figure it out or totally f it up then you can worry about shop fees. And Greg knows what he's talking about.
