I really wish I would have had those diagrams months ago haha

if you do crazy crazy things with your jeep and need to remove all of that stuff its pretty esy to cap that off and avoid having the extra crap in the rear fender

To avoid a lot of explanation here, I will relate you to another thread that covers most of it. Problem may not be what you think.


That link pertains to a 78 CJ, yours is a little newer, so the lines may not be as old, but the other factors could be the problem.

There are some other threads that address the problem as well if you want to search it.
My rubber is all new. I had to drop and clean out the tank when I got it, as it had a rag for a gas cap, and sat that way for years. Lots of water! Thank God for plastic tanks! I took the carb apart, cleaned it out, and ran a boat tank to limp it home.

I'm gonna look for pinched lines today, if I get time, and try sucking on the line that the check valves are hooked up to.

Thanks all for the advice. On a side note, It hasn't happened since I took the valve out of the gas cap yesterday. I'm thinking check valves/line. It is worst after a lot of off road jostling. I bet the check valves are sticking.

Maybe the cheap gas with alcohol in it has eaten up my rubber pickup line inside the tank? It's less than a year old.
Does anybody have a picture of what this looks like?
