Re: Jeep Runs Like Crap Now :o(

Well, it takes three things to get her to run. Spark, fuel/air, and compression. Pull a plug wire and check the spark. Put a compression gauge on the cylinder (or your finger) and check the compression. Sometimes to check fuel, I drip a little (don't fill her up or you will break something) into each cylinder and see if it will start. If it runs for a few seconds and then stops when you do this, start looking at the carb and fuel pump/line etc.

Other than that, drink a beer and howl at the moon. It works for me.

Good luck! Turtle
