I was driving in the parking lot taking off in first gear and suddenly my jeep turned off. It took about 45 seconds to start back on. The following day it did the same thing seemed as if I was empty but I have bout 1/4 tank. Anyone know what the cause of this is?
A fuel delivery problem (pump, regulator, filter) usually display themselves with a degrade or progressive loss in power. An abrupt loss (and restore) of power leads me to believe ignition issue. Could be something as simple as the distributor ignition pickup.
Sounds like the fuel pump, I was having similar problems awhile back. Especially when you are running your tank low on gas, the pump starts to heat up and malfunctions. Get a fuel pressure gage, that will tell you if it is the pump. I have a 99 and was told if the pressure dropped below 45 lbs fuel will not deliver to the engine. When it would die and I checked it my pressure was in the mid 30’s. I replaced the pump, pressure was back to normal and good to go
It happen today I was doing 45 n boom just turned right off took about 35 seconds to start after I completely stopped. I went to my local parts store to check my engine lite n they told me the code said miss fire check cylinder 1... So I have no idea ugh! I just put new spark plugs, msd wires, msd coil, copper battery post n an additive. But none of that apparently fixed the problem.
I have had the Same exact problem. Fuel pump died last Sunday so I replaced it for the second time in a year. But still once a week my engine light comes on and says cyl 1 misfire. Than it turns off. I'm stumped.
