To start please know that I am VERY beginner at this. I did have a big brother who taught me some basics growing up, but So far everything I've done Is self taught off the Internet lol
Anyway, I am working on a '97 jeep TJ 2.5L It doesn't appear to have had much, if any, maintenance.
So the problem is, it has very little power- especially uphill, it sputters, revs after driving for 10 minutes (perfect for the first 5/10) it then floods and dies, can't be started for the next couple hours.
So far I've changed the oil, plugs, wires, tranny fluid, coolant, power steering, alternator, battery, cleaned the TB, unplugged the O2 to see if that helped.
Oh and when I cleaned the TB the MAP, TPS, and IAC plugs were all covered in oil??? I have read many places that this is normal, but it REALLY doesn't seem right to me.
So what now?? Funds are not unlimited, so I'm trying to keep it cheap and easy so I was hoping to avoid changing the fuel pump...maybe the sensors?? lol thanks so much!
