Above normal jeep frustrations.

I am on my last thread with my jeep (well not really but I'm pissed off at her.)
I have been having problem after problem and solving them, but this one is beyond me. I'm never lending my jeep to anyone again!
Heres her problem:
She turns over and starts-ish (she ignites but dies right away)
If I press the gas more it still dies just as fast.
She has gas
Gas is getting to the carb
she has spark


Any Ideas would be great!
Thank you

Any chance the person you lent it to left the key on, but motor off? See if there is goo coming from your ignition module. Could be going, going, gone....

Hey the Ignition module shows now sign of goo. But I was told that my jeep was left on while the engine was off all night because it needed a jump this morning. Think its the module even tho there is no goo?

fuel filter, rebuild the carb. I'm like that credit card company, with a carb kit. Never leave home without it.

Left mine on overnight one time, had to jump it in the morning, it started fine. The Jeep died 8 or 9 times in 8 miles. finaly 1/2 mile from home it would'nt start at all. Swapped it out for a known good (module) used one. That was a 1000 miles ago. Sounds to me like you've found your problem.

on edit. had no goo but looked like there was lots of heat.

Most likely the ignition module is dead even though it is not bleeding. Just be aware some of the cheaper replacement modules are junk and sometimes dead right out of the box. I had a BWD brand that lasted quite a while.

I have replaced two bad ignition modules in my Jeep over the years. On both occasions there was no "goo" or any other physical evidence that they were bad. But from my experience, leaving the key on accidentally for an extended period of time will kill an ignition module.
