Another New Guy...

So, I live in Nashville, TN and I've had a yellow 4banger auto since 2000, with only 101k. I've always wanted to tinker with it but am just now getting the convergence of time and a little cash. I've loved Jeeps ever since I took off in my grandfathers old Willis and didn't speak to him for a year when he sold it to a buddy for only $500. I wouldve paid twice that to keep it.

Anyways my Jeeps got issues and I need advice... My fuel gauge is broken, but occasionally when I jump it (did replace the battery finally) it works fine.

Also changed the plugs the other day and blew one right out I the head. I've changed plugs a lot, that's never happened before.

Also my ac is out and heat comes through but doesn't seem like its blowing.

Finally, I've got a bit of a shudder in my engine idle, now that's not much but it feels like it might be miss firing, or distributor issues...

Anyways I've been stalking yalls threads for weeks and felt like I should throw out my issues and seek help. Hopefully itll help other newbs as some of your posts have helped me.

Love to wheel,
