Exclamation My new TJ will not go over 60mph! Help!!!!! PLZZZ

Hey guys I just bought this wrangler yesterday and thought it would be an easy fix, haha thinking it was a vacuum line off I sprayed all the lines down to try and get a reaction from the rpms but no luck it is running a little hot and actually started blowing colant out the over flow jug, but other than that it's running fine In all gears but just not going past 60 in 5th, looking for some much needed help please!!!

My ZJ is a great jeep and hope that this wrangler will be better!!!

Welcome Aboard! If you are blowing coolant out of the overflow jug, my guess is a blown head gasket and you are losing comrpession into the cooling system.

Nice Jeep

Find a local shop that specializes in 4x4's and have them do a full inspection so you will have piece of mind of what you need to do.
