My 1984 jeep cj7 stalls while driving or while stopping at a stop sign or as soon as I put it in neutral to coast. It also has a hard time starting up and I have to pump the gas pedal and I have to let it warm up before it will run. When i'm driving down the road 1st and 2nd gear are usually fine but when I shift to third it starts shutting down and I can pump the gas and keep it going. We replaced the fuel pump but it still does it.
Do you
have the same problem?

Wrote over 25 answers last few days......Not 1 reply......I WANT A REPLY!!! (I COULD CARE LESS ABOUT "FEEDBACK and VOTES")....It always gives us a warm fuzzy, knowing that we are staying up till all hours, typing out a NOVEL that may help you get your baby up and running ASAP (FOR NO $$$), fixing stuff the other guys (auto shop) would let slip on by, that should have been addressed while repairing the 1st problem,(preventing other problems) and we want someone to at least acknowledge the effort we have made............ PARTICULARLY W/ THE VEHICLE I KNOW MOST ABOUT and the GREATEST VEHICLE KNOWN TO MAN.

I CAN HELP YOU!....see my profile....NO PAY FOR ME, HOBBY while injured over 1 year.

Know my stuff w/ CJs..........Still got Carter BBD CARB?....Vacuum lines hooked up right?...Is pollution stuff an issue at your location? (or if pollution stuff all/ semi-removed, are vac. lines to right places, as in pre-1972 non-poll. Jeeps?)

How 'bout that fuel filter, has it been replaced?...(saw pump was in your quest.).....DO YOU STILL HAVE THE ORIGINAL TYPE FILTER W/ 1 inlet and 2 outlets?.....CRITICAL THAT YOU DO.

I can show some pics to you on things to do, however, I am having difficulty in getting them off and on site....wrote a question to SERVICE WRITER about this 2 days ago......no reply there either

A Manual would help commo between us drastically. Need your answers, Can show a little now. KEEP IN MIND, MY RIG has 4 barrel carb + intake on 258 1979 engine........the rest is basically the same.

It really sounds like a FUEL ISSUE (too much or too little)INCORRECT CARB ADJ (or rebuild/ replacement rebuilt)FILTERTIMING----VACUUM LEAKINCORRECT VAC. LINE LOCATIONSOR----WORSE, INTERNAL ENGINE WEAR ETC. (will not go there, YET!!!)

CAN AND WILL AID YOU THRU ALL STEPS (correct routing---adjs--etc).... EITHER HERE OR AT PRIVATE MESSAGE.......need to know if there is ......AUTO MECHANICAL COMPETENCE? (level?)----Vacuum gauge?---PortableTach/ Dwell meter?---voltmeter? --Repair Manual?--ON YOUR END?????? (Got mine + more)

YOUR PROBLEM IS THE TYPE I ENJOY and WAIT FORI really like talking someone thru their "ISSUE".......hurry up I'm Waiting.

Love, Turddog

(AS YOU HAVE SEEN HERE, SO FAR,.... NO FAST, GET RID OF YOU,.... ANSWER,..... WILL GUIDE YOU THRU IT ALL, METICULOUSLY)

I've rerouted my lines, but this is the filter you SHOULD HAVE (3 ports) left of valve cover. L port IN.....R top(little tit)out to gas tank return.......R bottom (hid+larger tit)OUT.... thru optional regulator + pressure gauge, THEN into CARB
