Engine Performance problem
1997 Jeep Laredo 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 155000 miles
No “Check Engine Light”.
Replaced both O² sensors.
Replaced plugs, wires, cap, rotor, but not the pick-up coil
Computer message;“Random Misfires on plugs 4, 5 &6” and possible bad coil.
Runs OK when cold, but after it warms up, seems like it goes out of time.
Bucks and pops, sometimes quits firing anytime. Could get stuck at light or on the Interstate. Sometimes it starts right away and other times I have to wait for 20 minutes before it starts. Seems to diesel often, (after it gets warm). When it is barely running or won’t start I can smell raw fuel. If it were an old car I would think it’s a timing problem. I was told MAP, TPS, coil and distributor, but I hope that someone can direct me so I don’t have to replace all of these items.
(already paid $10 for this question to Ken Lavacot)
