Question Y j?

G'day guy's. I just bought ( a month ago) my first wrangler, a YJ. the body is great but I have an intermittent problem. It started with the jeep not starting, (no spark) changed the Coil, no joy. replaced the oil pressure sensor it would start when i wriggled the connector. No joy! i was now out of my depth. I had it towed to a shop. they replaced the spark module, and woohoo I had a running jeep. That week end I left on a road trip, and it stared to back fire and (the only way I can explain it) shut down. I can restart it and it will run doing this on off thing at different times. some times it will run fine for an hour and then start the stop start thing again. If you are still reading this and have any clues PLEASE HELP ME!!! I'm now starting to think it might have a bad ground.

Our computer module on 94 YJ fried...had been running fine after sitting for 2 years with not even the engine hooked up...got it all rebuilt and upgraded, did some driving around, then suddenly dead. The 'module' has a couple screws holding it on the firewall with all the wiring, check around that and even dismount the wiring harness carefully...look for 'charcoal smoke'. If you see any of that-your computer has or is ready to burn out. Don't buy a used one...it has to be set to your VIN number or something...we had to supply that when I ordered a new one. Hope it is just a bad ground (and that means your battery cable could be BROKEN inside the insulation-just go ahead and replace both cables-they aren't that expensive) and nothing major for you!
