Jeep died, and then lives again?
I was driving to the gym on the morning of December 24, and about 10 minutes into my trip, my 1998 Jeep starting making a slight sputtering or skipping noise. I listened and gave it some gas, but all that did was make it skip more. I drove it a bit more, but my Jeep slowly started to die. I was cruising at 45, then the maximum speed I could hold was 35, then 25,...I revved it up, but it just wouldn't rev. Sounded like it wasn't getting enough fuel. I replaced the fuel pump about 3 months ago (Carter) and the symptoms are similar, except for the fact that this time, my idle is EXTREMELY rough.
After it got down to about 15, I pulled over and shut it off. I started it up 2 hours later, and it was still the same rough idle. I tried to drive it home, but it went from 35, to 25...then it just slowly and completley died. It would NOT start again; I mean it did NOTHING, absolutely NO RESPONSE at all. The check engine light did NOT come on. The next day it actually started and the idle was a little better, but it is definately NOT normal. Does anyone have any ideas on what this could be?
