Hello, I bought a used 83 CJ7 6cyl from the Greenville SC area about 2 months ago with 190K miles. The previous owner had it sitting and only drove it a few times a year. He mentioned that the vacuum system was bypassed or blocked but that it didn't matter sense there wasn't a smog test required. He also replaced the fuel pump a few years ago. So, I drove it down to FL and it ran great. What a GREAT deal. She runs perfect! Very clean and mostly stock Jeep. Well, it recently started with engine problems at high RPM or high power. Seems to bog down and feel like it's missing or not getting enough fuel. May be realated but it was low on oil after the trek to FL so I topped it off with Mobile1 High Milage and it seems to consume about 1 quart for every 2 tanks of gas. I'm not very mechanically inclined and have only done minor work with engines. Oil changes, plugs, and filters basically.
Thanks in advance for all the help and advice!
