Ive got a 1988 jeep YJ with the 258 6cyl. And the ax 15 5 spd that I swapped in place of the peugeot POS tranny. Its been running really smooth lately up until tonight on my way home from work. It has done this a few times prior but would always stop after about 20 seconds or so, but it did it the whole way home. Commonly does it after I hit a puddle, or when its raining but it was dry today. Wanted to see if anyone else out here has had a similar problem and what they did to fix it.
it will respond smoothly to the gas when its in neutral but once I put it in gear and hit the gas it seems to just die than itll pick up and slam the entire jeep back and forth, similar to riding a bull or something. Definately causes a rough ride, and wont accelerate any faster than 25-30 or so.
any ideas? Im stumped.
