  4. YJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    I scoured every forum finding identical accounts of the problem I had. I had hesitation just off idle while accelerating that would result in a stall if I didn't let off the gas and let it "catch up". It would also happen while at speed if I let off the gas to coast and then got back on the...
  5. TJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    Hello everyone! My automatic Wrangler is having an issue with acceleration. It has a bit of a hiccup when it goes into second gear. I noticed that the TV cable is a bit loose, but it doesn't have the white button or clip to help tighten it. Any suggestions on how to go about doing that? Thanks!

    I have a 1990 Jeep Wrangler 4.2 L 6 cyl that is having a few issues that I could really use some help with. When I am driving uphill in 4th gear it will lose power and I am forced to shift down into a lower gear until I get enough power. When it loses power it will start to sputter and it gets...

    I just bought a '77 Dj-5F with the 232 I-6 and drove it home an hour drive from place of purchase. Ran great, and did for a few days. Then I noticed it began hesitating a bit when starting to accelerate. I popped the hood and noticed some loose spark plugs. I tightened them up and figured that...

    On my '08 4dr with 27k miles and manual trans, I've started to notice an issue where it will sometimes lose power for a second or two when I'm accelerating. It seems to happen most when I shift into 2nd (and maybe 4th). I feel a temporary loss of power, and then it goes away. This is on dry...

  18. TJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    Hey guys, I recently had a lot of acceleration/shifting troubles and thanks to Jerry Bransford I traced it back to a Throttle Valve (TV) cable issue. As far as I understand it, the TV cable is the relationship between the throttle body and the transmission, acceleration and shifting. Here is an...
