ok so my Cj was running fine..... then for some reason it was really hard to start.... I'm talking 5min or more having to pump the gas and finally it would start and once it warmed up it started up just fine, idled fine, ran fine, the only think i have noticed is that if I'm high in the rpm's and back off the throttle it'll back fire a few times....
on the way home i stopped to fill up and noticed my gas gauge wouldn't read full.... with gas overflowing it would only read 3/4 full.
get home and realize one side of the brace that holds my gas tank has come completely unbolted (i felt like an idiot for not seeing it sooner
) so i went and got 4 nuts and put it back in place
that fixed the hard starting problem and it ran for a day no problems
now it won't idle.... it'll start and run but if i get too low in the rpm's down around idle it just dies..
i know very little about jeeps and how to fix them... i can change my oil... with instructions i can add lights and other accessories and even bolt back a falling down gas tank lol but when it comes to performance and engine works I'm ignorant...
thats why I'm here... i'd love to be able to fix this myself.
could having the gas tank lopsided for a few days have something to do with it not idling?
by the way y'all are awesome thank you all for your time and knowledge!!
