I have a 1995 Jeep Wrangler, 4 cyl (2.5) with a 5 speed manual trans. I bought it used yesterday . The problem first showed up within 2 hours of purchase. What happens is that I'll be driving along and it will shut off. No bucking, no noise. Usually when it happens it first seems as if it isn't getting fuel as pushing the accelerator does nothing, then within several seconds, the engine shuts off completely. After it sets for 10-20 minutes it will restart (I have to turn the key on and off rapidly to get fuel to the block in this time) After that, It’ll turn over and run for maybe 2-3 miles then repeat. It’s done it 7 times already. It occurs no matter the fuel level, weather (hot, cold, damp, dry), going up hill or down, fast or slow, continuous driving or stop & go, night or day, 1st gear or 5th. It doesn't idle rough before or after. The check engine light does not come on when this happens. I’ve been told it’s the fuel pump, computer, Fuel sending unit, distributor cap, spark plugs, ignition, etc. The guy that owned before me changed all of that. And his proof was giving me the replaced/worn out parts and receipts. Everything has been changed in the past year. Can anyone tell me what’s going on?
Also, the fuel pump does turn on (or the motor wouldn’t receive fuel) but would it be the fuel sending unit?
Thanks for any help you can give..
