Vehicle info: 1987 YJ with 4.2l V6 Automatic transmission
I'm having two main problems with my '87 right now...The first is that after the engine runs for about 5 minutes it starts to stall if it's not getting gas. When the jeep is started cold it'll run fine for a bit, but then just keeps stalling, as soon as I start it after it stalls it will stall right out if I'm not on the gas right away.
The second problem is that my 4wd isn't currently working. I can shift it into 4H, feel it shift, hear it shift, but, with the rear tires spinning, the front tires are stationary. The light doesn't come on either, but, I figure that none of the dashlights other than the turn signals work, so not sure if it's a fuse there or not...
I've had the jeep for about 5 months now and only recently tried using the 4wd, it was working when it was sold to me though. The stalling issue is VERY recent, and I just replaced the fuel filter to see if that helped (It didn't)
The reason I'm thinking it might be the carb is it isn't a matched carb to the vehicle, I honestly have no idea whatsoever what type of carb it is, but the PO said that the original went on him (Didn't specify how) and that he didn't want to pay for the correct replacement. I got it as a learning/project vehicle so this didn't bother me too much. Now I'm wondering if my problems could be traced to it though. What say you YJ Gurus?
(Either way I'm thinking of getting a Weber to replace the carb in the next month, but, well, I want to solve the issues first if it's not likely to be the carb)
