Engine Mechanical problem
1984 Jeep CJ7 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Manual 100000 miles
I have owned my Jeep since 1990. It has always had a stalling problem. Since then I have had almost the entire jeep rebuilt/replaced. The last time I drove it (it has been sitting for a couple of years now) was after a major re-hual and the stalling problem slowly started coming back and got worse and worse. During that time I noticed that I would fill the gas tank and the car would run fine for a period, then start stalling (during idle/always had to keep it revved up) until it simply would not start. I would then put gas into it and it would run again. I would usually run down to about a half a tank and then not start - this occurred for awhile - seemed to get worse, then finally it would not start at all even with new gas. I have not done really any work on the car myself - but want to start. After researching a little I thought it may be a fuel problem (i.E. Filter, lines or tank) The fuel tank is one of the few original parts of the Jeep. I would like any ideas or even advice on how to test my theory before digging into trying to take off, drain and clean the tank. Thanks.
have the same problem?
