Good mechanic needed.

Hello everyone!

Few weeks ago my 93 Wrangler I6 spun a bearing, looked around online for new engine. Found one for about $1500 with a nice warranty, had it delivered, swapped it out over the weekend but now the Jeep has no power (it fires right up, the engine sounds good, no smoke) but it feels like it’s in the wrong gear. Checked the compression, changed out all of the sensors, did a major tune up, but still no luck. Any suggestions? Or does anyone know a good mechanic around Plainfield IL area? Please let me know.

Thx.

Hi,

Before the engine swap-out the Jeep had some pick up… now when I set on the gas it feels like the parking brake is on. It has no go… the rpm’s go up but the truck is not moving as fast as it was before.

Sounds like a bad clutch from your description.

check the ignition timing and if thats good check the cam timing. If the timing chain is off 1 or 2 notches on the gear it will run fine but will not have alot of power.

If it was the clutch you would smell it burning if it's slipping that much. Do you smell it burning?

I bet it is your timing. Adjust the distributor with a timing light. will probably fix it. have a good one.

After I swapped my engine, it did a similar thing. It was the clutch and I did NOT smell it burning. Good luck!!
