cruiser54 With it idling, spray some carb cleaner around the vacuum lines. You'll find it.

Now that you mention, i did put a new Wix fuel filter with the tune and sometime later down the line the Fuel Pump Ballast Resistor physically broke in the engine bay, the same ones in there still, pretty sure its just wired together at the moment and not bypassed. engine doesn't stay on with out it. Talking it out with you, i realize this could be a culprit. I'll have to go pick up a gauge to check the fuel rail tho.

i installed the exhaust manifold months before these issues arose and have had inspections since then with no mentions of a leak, so for now ill rule out the exhaust leak but will consider it heavily.

Only temporarily but i wrapped some thermotek automotive tape around most of the vacuum lines and tubes in a poor mans attempt to seal any leaks.

I don't have a check engine light on and its a 93, So OBD1 not 2, They don't really make consumer OBD1 Live data code readers.
not to mention the header, exhaust and sensors have less then 10k miles threw them

taped all the hoes up, made sure they were all attached, not seeing any immediate differences

2 people mentioned MAP, maybe mines a lemon, the one in there right now is a Spectra Premium part ID MP102
Would a poorly sealed exhaust manifold cause any of these issues?

Was like 30 bucks, maybe ill try a third one?

XJ "Dieseling" after new Sensors

I also have a 93 XJ that's my daily, i was getting poor milage so i tuned up the engine new champion spark plugs, wires, distributor cap, air filter and sensors TPS, MAP, IAC and cleaned up the throttle body abit, but the engines been running really rich since.
alot of the parts were mid range ordered off rockauto, never economy brand but never premium either

the tail pipe turned black at the tip and a i experience i extra 4 - 5 engine cranks after killing the ignition when the car is warmed up
sometimes the car idles at 1500 rpm in park

Kinda lazy let this issue slide for awhile took me like a month to install a ball joint on my other jeep haha
i still have all my old sensors to try to switch one out for comparison
not really sure how to tell which ones bad or "under performing" however
