2.5 missing under a load.

I have a 95 YJ. I am new in the jeep business however still he weekend mechanic at times. I have a miss when the jeep is under a load.

I have replaced the plugs wires, cap and rotor thinking it was a wire problem still have the miss. This YJ has the 2.5 with a 5 speed. I just bought this rascal with 112k on the odometer any suggestions.

Sounds like spark is taken care of... What about fuel issues? Clogged injectors, low fuel pressure, etc.

Also, check all of your electrical grounds and make sure they are tight and making good contact.

My 94 acted like that at cold temperatures (below freezing) and it ended up being the ecu had moisture in it. try a hair dryer on the ECU for 30 mins then take it for a ride and if it runs better it might be your problem. I purchased a napa reman 3 years ago for around 380$ but it looks like all they did was replace the capacitors because there is gobs of white silicone where the capacitors are located. I have read a few posts of people replacing these themselves but I am not that good at electrical soldering so I chose the expensive route. I ruled out fuel issues and a bad coil before by simply throwing $ at it. But a spare coil is handy out in the boonies anyway.

Coil? Have you replace the fuel filter and fuel strainer in the tank?

Agree, sometimes a weak coil will cause a miss under load and so will a dirty fuel filter....

Thanks folks. I have not replaced the coil. I have not replaced the fuel filter however the guy that had it before me replaced the in line filter but never said anything about the fuel tank. I just hate to keep chasing this down spending money on issues that may not be the problem. I am suspicious of the injectors.

Fuel filters are cheap and only take a few minutes to install. Its over the driver's side rear axle.....there is no filter per se in the tank but there is a sock type screen that has been known to plug up...
a weak spark will cause a miss under load too

Well folks I found out what the problem was I have a bad motor. The number 2 cylinder has no compression and 1,3 are at 80 so I am in the need of a good rebuild or new engine.
