A couple things to note. The jeep will idle at operating temperature forever. It doesn't miss a beat until you get driving it for a few minutes and then it starts to stall. After making it back from the road and is hot, it will still remain idling without any problems. I have looked for vacuum leaks and everything seems okay. I have not changed the vacuum lines as of yet. When I bought this jeep it ran great for 2 straight summers and I have not done anything different to the jeep. Any direction would be appreciated as I am learning about the 4.2 L I am not sure all that has been modified as some electrical and some vacuum lines seem to be plugged etc.
A couple questions:
1.) Should I replace the carb again but use the model Autoline c6214? This model does not have the stepper motor.
2.) On this new carb there was not a linkage to hook up the Manual choke. I will not be driving this jeep in the winter so do I need to have a manual choke?
3.)Could a bad fuel pump be the cause of this problem?
4.) Any direction would be grateful I really want to get my jeep roadworthy again. Thanks so much for your time. This site is awesome.
have the same problem?
