I have a 90 jeep yj. I replaced the fuel filter, distributor cap, and rotor. Now I have problems with startingIt acts like its out of gas, but the tank is full. I prime the pump several times, and it coughs and sputters, almost like the timing is off. But once it starts it runs fine. Do I ned to do the timing? Or could it be a vacumm system issue?

258 OR A FOUR CYLINDER?

HAPPEN OUT OF THE BLUE, OR MAYBE SOMETHING YOU DID CONTRIBUTED TO THIS?
