Engine Performance problem
1985 Jeep CJ7 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Manual

runs rough in 3rd & 4th gear, while going 55mph, I take out of gear and it smoothes out, runs rough under stress in these gears, just started

OK FELLOW JEEP GUY, Heres the deal, 1st See my profile.

2nd I want you to go to the post below yours in the Forum, (THIS WILL SAVE ME SOME, HUNTING AND PECKING)----"1985 CJ 7 IDLE" This Pic display is my neighbors 1983 CJ 7, The vacuum lines are not all "FACTORY", such as Air Cleaner is not hooked in, and others----it is now OK once it is warmed up, and runs well.

My 1977 CJ 5 has been modified and has a Holley 390 4 barrel, Only necessary vacuum lines (bare minimum, 2 lines, and one other to a dash mounted vacuum gauge) are hooked up on it

I will help you, all I can, as you will be able to see, if you, explore CJ 5 and CJ 7 questions, I have answered many (in great detail), and get very few responses

Anyway go thru that post checking and doing stuff it says, Also replace your FUEL FILTER, if its been awhile.

I want answers to the questions I asked in the other post, and a little more detail of what its doing after these "fixes". Level ground, pulling a hill, decelleration etc MEGA DETAIL!

Any non factory things that may have been taken off or added to your baby!

Return to THIS POST, with answers, (reply to question) We will then continue.

Love, Turddog
