87 wagoneer engine question
I have an 87 wagoneer I just purchased today, got it for a good deal but it has its perks to it, the engine runs strong and the car is a tank, got to put it to use and actually pull out my cousins built up grand Cherokee with it, but anyway, I have a few questions,
First, when the engine is cold, there's been a few times where the starter just spins, it doesn't crank the engine, then I turn the key a few more times and boom, it starts, so what could the issue there be ? Do I need a new starter ? Because it sounds to me like the starter works its just not catching.
When I was pulling out my cousin, when I was sitting at a stand still than I floored it to jerk him out, as soon as I floored it, the engine shut off on me, now this was the second time it happened to me, the first time was when I tried to get it to spin wheels, held my foot on the brake, than slammed the pedal to the floor and it shut off. But it started right back up. So could someone please explain what I can look at or clean or change to get it to not do that ? Seems to me like something with the carb but I don't know much about engines so I'm not too sure, also it's the AMC 360 V8
