Re: jeep trying to die on me....need help
i don't know the exact miles on engine, it was rebuilt just before i bought it, but i'd guess around 20K. as for the egr valve, that has been removed. i just replaced the fuel filter this summer. even so it doesn't seem like a fuel problem, when you put the pedal down it doesn't hesitate or kind of sputter.....it either revs like it should or nothing at all. also would it backfire if it were a fuel filter? the problem is random. it started up great this morning, was driving to school and suddenly just lost power.....suddenly got it back...lost it...back again....then ran fine for a couple miles....then lost it again......it is all random, i can't find any sort of pattern ( such as going up a long incline or down an incline, around a corner...anything) for some reason, it just feel like something electrical. i have driven cars w/water in fuel and this sputtering is nothing like that.
thanks again everyone.
