wrangler ign problems?
Hi all newbie here to the Offroad.com sites.
Have a 97 wrangler 2.5litre 5spd which has been just recently aquired and have come up with a bit of a problem.
At first on occasion when you would go to pull out it would just kind of surge like it wanted to quit! / push in clutch rev it a few times and then it would go!
Now it has gotten to be quite regular and had been backfiring when this occured, Replace the cap rotor and plugs as the cap had signs of age and wear ,the back fire has gone but it still acts like the ignition is shutting down and then comes back.
Seems if i come to a stop and hold the throttle up around 1000/1200 then a few light revs and it will pull out ,once at speed it seems OK ? but if you go to say 4th gear and let the speed come down a bit and push the accel it wants to buck ..
Have never had or worked on the 2.5 and not sure what to check in this system,any common ignition problems on these motors ?
any help appreciated thanxx all
