I recently bought this 94 wrangler it has an automatic trans. And I think a 2.4 ltr. 4 cyl. Eng. With over 100,000 mi. On second eng. Is what I was told, it runs great at an idle but when I get up around 40-50mph. It starts cutting out backfiring etc. I can shut it off and turn it back on and it quits for a little while but then does the same thing, it has good fuel press. I checked it, any ideas?
Do you
have the same problem?

Tried a new coil this weekend, that didnt do the trick, put new plug wires on that seemed to take the backfire away, but now when I rev the motor up a little and hold it steady it surges up and down, could this be the fuel pressure regulator or maybe a vacuum leak? Help please. Thanks, scotty

Could be either one. Also test fuel pressure to be sure it is within spec

What should the fuel pressure be, pressure regulator seems to be working fine, but I still get an up and down surge while holding the throttle at steady speed?

I think your Jeep is gonna have to go on a scanner to watch the sensor outputs. What you are describing could be many different things

My fuel pressue is 24-25 psi book says its supposed to be 31, could the 6 psi difference make it act like this? I also did the test it called for in the manual and the pressure never changed. It does not surge up and down any more with steady pressure on the throttle, I dont know why it quit all I did was put a new exhaust system on. The engine idles great but when I get it on the road right before it shifts it stalls and backfires through the throttle body. Anymore suggestions before I put it on the computer?

TURNS OUT IT WAS A WEAK FUEL PUMP CAUSING MY PROBLEM, SO I FIXED IT, DROVE IT TO GALVESTON AND IT WORKED FINE GOING BUT ON THE WAY BACK IT STARTED A NEW PROBLEM. IT WOULD DIE ON ME WHILE GOING DOWN THE ROAD, I COULD TURN IT OFF, CRANK IT UP AGAIN GO A FEW THOUSAND FEET AND IT WOULD DO IT AGAIN AS SOON AS I HIT THE GAS PEDAL, WHEN ITS COLD IT WILL CRANK UP AND RUN FINE UNTIL I HIT THE GAS PEDAL THEN IT DIES AGAIN. ANY SUGGESTIONS?
