Well my first wheeling experience went pretty well today, lots of sandy mud and deep water crossings.
As we are on the way out of the park, I notice that the jeep starts to buck, studder in a way, as if i was letting go of the gas and then punching it while its in the same gear.
As i get on the highway, its more noticeable, each gear.. not everytime, but on occassion.
1st gear through 5th, heavy throttle or light throttle, i get the buck usually in a sequence of 3. feels like throttle, quickly off the throttle, and bam back on it again.
I did get water in the distributor cap, i did have water coming over the hood in some points, but i cleaned the distributor cap and sprayed it.
Only other symptom related to this problem is it has an inconsistent/rough idle, sometimes dipping low as 300 rpms, sometimes normal.
This bucking/spuddering/kicking does not happen
-While not on the accelerator
-While in neutral revving
-In 4wd, hi and low
-No matter what speed or how much throttle is given.
And i have no idea on how or what to diagnose this problem as, i am going to flush the tranny, change the diffs.. but i just dont know if this is a tranny problem, a problem with my plugs getting damp or moist maybe and i need to replace them, if its a problem with my rear.
Please help, this is very frustrating as I had to limp home 2 hours today.
