I posted when I bought the jeep, since then I have been working out the problems that I bought it with. I just got it on the road a few days ago, the rev limiter kicks on at 3.5 grand. The jeep is dirt slow and really rough in first. its a 1994 4.0L 5speed.
You can floor it all you want in 2nd 3rd 4th, 5th, it goes nowhere fast. I dont think ive actually gone faster than 45mph in it.
Being new to Wranglers I tried to see if it was stuck in 4L. The selector does move around and the 4WD light comes on at 4H and 4L. The transfer case did go into neutral and it disengaged. In both 4H and 2H the jeep has this issue. any clues what it is?
most likely unrelated I have two wires that I'm not sure where they go to:
this one is harnessed in with what appears to be going to the front parking light/blinker. it has a 20A inline fuse. there are aftermarket fog lights which both work. other than that theres an aftermarket head unit, no stereo amps in car.
the other is under the car, between the radiator and rusty oil pan.... right near the crank pulley. (there should be a red arrow in the pic)
