Could be the fact that it is a Jeep!

Don't know if '92 has a map sensor or not, but if it does check that. Coolant temp sensor also.
'89 Yes a Junker, 150c.i. of AMC power and plenty of rust! 100% paid for.

The American way: Accrue massive amounts of debt on things we cannot afford. Simultaneously giving the illusion of owning great sums of money for the sole purpose of impressing those around you.

Oxygen sensor will definately make it run like that, for the too cool code thermostat could be stuck open, other codes are normal.
