93 YJ wont idle or run smooth

Here is the deal I have been driving my jeep fine everyday and then all of a sudden this morning I try to drive to work and my jeep won't run smooth or idle smooth. It starts but it won't drive if I give it has it starts choking up and dies. Smells like gas under the hood. This is the first injected car I have had so I have no idea were to start. 1993 YJ 4.0 6cly

If it smells like gas under the hood, I would check all the fuel connections under there. Check all the injectors, the whole fuel rail. Also check the lines coming from the rear up under the hood.

Take a look at my handmade custom paracord grab handles & other handmade paracord items!

You Choose the colors!!

Got it fixed. The fuel line near the fuel filter had blown. There was a blister in the line and it popped or disintegrated. I think it must of just been a faulty line. I replaced it now it runs like a champ. Thanks for the info.
