I'm having the same problem. Check for spark.. That's half the battle.

i would have to say that its sounding like the ignition control module probebly from all the mudding so first check that the connections are all clean then test the module

If something is going to quit on me, I like a little notice. A spit and a sputter, or some indication that things are fixin to head South on me. But when things just up and quit, I got no clue. As far as I know, it could be most anything. Good luck,sorry I'm no help.

Maybe the crank position sensor??? I don't know much about the 91-95 YJ's, but that's something that I read about that goes bad pretty often.

Before you do anything I'd check to see if you're getting spark. Then you at least have some direction to go in.

I must check in the morning to see if I have electronic ignition, or points. I got to have the modern stuff, don't I?? Sure I do, what am I thinking? It's a 95, not a 75.

sorry guys, didn't see it sooner. sounds like you have a direction to go in. always gotta make sure the maintenance is up first anyway. give us an update after that, i'm thinkin either ignition module or crank sensor.

if the problem comes back you gotta check spark when it isn't working, and injector pulse.

It just runs rough now so idnk the jeep ran good no miss fires or bad idle she said it just up and died so today I cleaned the coil nub off it was dirty same with the coil wire the cap and rotor and wires look fairly new but don't hurt to tune her up I think tomorrow I will pick all the parts up I just don't want to throw money at the wrong thing is all

well i would assume that if the coil was dirty, theirs a good chance that the ignition control module might have dirt in the connectors too. (the down fall of the fun in the mud goes with the territory though)so might want to check that to but if the rpm's are bounceing then maybe cps

well it runs under 1k don't really bounce real high sounds like a huge cam lol and then she dies if you don't give it gas so thats what I get to mess with tomorrow I just bought new flares for her and can't even drive it around to show them off

Also the stupid manifold is cracked around the flange foe the down pipe so I'm going to be looking for a Header for her performance lol
