I have been desperately trying to get my 1999 Wrangler running right ....with very little luck.
Here are the "issues" that I am seeing .... I think basicly I am screwed.
First off, I am currently getting a P1391 code on the Jeep. If I am not mistaken that makes mention of the CAM and Crank sensors. (both have been replaced). Was told by a mechanic to look into changing out the distributor but he was not exactly positive about it.
Secondly, I have had the beast for about a year now and everytime I go to start it, it is about the hardest damn starting vehicle I have seen. I have to crack on it several times to get it to start. I have replaced lots of different sensors (yes I have even replaced the fuel pump) and parts trying to get it running the right way but still have not had much success.
While messing with one of the sensors I noticed that my Intake Manifold had/has oil in it. I thought nothing of it at the time (I am by far not a mechanic!) but I have been reading recently that the CCV could be clogged..... that being said if it was ran like that for a long time due to operator IGNORANCE, would that effect the Catalytic converter? Other than if it was just plain running too rich?
Last thing....here recently after warm up, if I try to hit the gas, it bogs down. I have to sorta baby it to get it up to a running speed (thus the question about the Cat earlier).
Thanks for taking the time to read this ....any and all constructive comments welcomed! Heck I will even take the snarky ones if they at least give me someplace to start!
