See my profile, Your Jeep is 5 years newer than my newest Jeep CJ 5.
I do not know what has happened to your Jeep in the last 28 years. You will have to inform me on its engine and extra stuffs condition.
I am your best and probably most helping answer you can get here.
I know my CJs very well---I can help you all the way thru this till you are running great. And help with any other problems you might have with your Jeep. Just keep replying at "Reply to Question" below.
You may donate to the cause if you desire, this is a good helping site, Just someone who has owned 7 CJs, and do my own work, since 1981 when I started driving----all have been primary--everyday drivers, except for my '46 Willys.I am very mechanical and experienced so many CJ solutions, waiting to happen!
I get carried away and sometimes out of order in my answers, so ask questions along the way to stay straight!
You could have a number of things that affect you:
The other post is "1985 Jeep CJ 7 Stalls When Hot" (14 responses) Its a little further down than yours in the CJ 7 forum.
This will save me some Hunting and Pecking and repeat answering
I want you to pay attention to the vacuum lines that are "Have To's" and I need to know the pollution/ vehicle testing status of your area. You also may want me to assist you in getting rid of the extra crap, so that Mr. Jeep engine might be EZer to maintain or repair.
We may need to get a little more "Personal" with your problem, than in this Answer I am sending you to. Let me know if you Understand what is going on in that answer. Or what you are not up to par on.I will still try to help you.
Come back to this post and let me know what you are going to try. Or need assistance on.
This is really not complicated, working on a CJ!
I even share my personal SUPER MECHANICAL MODIFICATIONS with other CJ guys--a lot of making original stuff better. Ask later to see my pics!
You might also investigate other CJ 5 and CJ7 answers I have given (in their respective forums) I answer the CJs alot here!
Respond (please) I get few.
