ok i am gonna start from the begining (this is a long story)! I went wheeling down here in summerville. The next week is was leaving for the long drive back to the Seattle area so I took the vehical to a frriend of mine who is a mechanic. he looked under the hood and told me that i would be wise ot remove most of the mud off the engine. So being the stupid 21 year old I am i sprayed down the engine with the hose and i didnt cover any of my electrical stuff under the hood. stupid thing to do I know. things ran great for about two days then the day before we left i noticed that the idle was really high on the jeep. Then the jeep threw a code for a Tps. I then replaced that! the jeep ran great after that. We hit the road. got to atlanta georgia and while going highway speeds ( 70 mph ) the jeep would stumble like it wasnt getting any fuel or no spark. we would then pull over and let the jeep sit for about 15 or 20 minutes and then start her up and keep going. Another 25 to 30 miles and it would stumble again. I then replaced the MAP sensor and the Cam shaft positioning sensor. problem of stumblig still persisted. got the jeep town to agusta goergia, we let it sit over night. got in the next morning and it drove normally all the way back to Charleston, which is a 110 miles drive or so. Not a single problem. I flew back to seattle. The jeep has been sitting of rabout five and half months. It was periodically started up by my grand father who just let it idle. it quit on him about two months ago. now it just turns over and wont start. I have replaced the Camshaft positioning sensor, the Crankshaft positioning sensor, The map sensor, the TPS, anf the jeep is getting plenty of fuel. Once again when the jeep was stubleimg before on the highway it only did it on the highway, never did it when idling or while driving city speeds, only did it at 60 to 70 mph. I think i need to replace the computer or atleast plug in a new one and see if it starts.
