Iíve been in Afghanistan for a few months and when youíre in a place like this, you have a lot of time to think about stuff. And Iíve been thinking about my CJ7 a lot; where Iím going to drive it, what parts Iím going to buy, and all that. I canít wait to take my son
for a drive out to the beach or around the base on the trails when I get home.
I have a question about the jeep thatís been on my mind and Iíd like to know where to start when I get home. Before I left, I was experiencing a strange problem that no one seems to have an answer for. Here goes.
Jeep starts and drives fine. Drives great for long distances, doesnít overheat, doesnít stutter or anything on acceleration.
However, when I drive it for 10-15 minutes, it warms up, and I get in stop and go traffic (usually on my way home from work) it begins to run very rough. Acceleration stutters and it feels like everything is just off, like itís trying to limp home. When I get it home and let it set for a few hours, it starts and drives just fine again.
The í84 CJ 7 is all stock, 4.2L 6-Cyl, Carter BBD Carb.
I have done these things so far:
1) It does not overheat, but: Changed thermostat, flushed cooling system
2) New fuel filter Ė checked carb jets (they are clean)
3) New Electronic Control Module, distributor cap/rotor, plugs, wires
4) Swapped out almost all the Vacuum tubing and rubber fuel line
5) Nutter Bypass because I thought it could be a computer problem
Thanks for taking the time to read this. Any thoughts?
