Use throttle body cleaner, many carb cleaners will damage rubber connections on the throttle body.

Thanks, it worked, but I didn't get any codes. Right after it hit the 9999999 it went to my mileage. I guess I might have to revert to trial and error. LOL.

spanky 1) Push and hold the odometer reset button.

2) Insert the key into the ignition and turn it to the Run position, but don't start it.

3) Release the odometer reset button.

It will enter the self test mode. The gauges will start moving in a certain sequence and also most of the indicator lights will turn on. Also the odometer will display all the numbers.

In some cases, if there is a stored code, or if the Check Engine Light is activated, the Error Code will be displayed in the Odometer after it finishes the test.


here is a list of error codes :

BCWhite 47,000 on the motor itself. I know it has all new plugs wires etc. I tried to get the code with the ignition but couldn't get it to work. I guess I'll take it to autozone and get them to read the codes for me.

4Jeepn Yes a code reader might help you can also get the codes off the dash yourself. .I think its, turn the key from off to on 3 time or 4 landing on, on. Dash should give a read out. You could also try some fuel system cleaner, or fuel injector cleaner as well, the next time you fill up. How many miles are on the jeep?
07-24-2008 10:20 PM
slf41002 How many miles are on it and do you know if it was properly maintained in the past.I would start with close to the first post but normally most auto zones and advance auto parts stores will check the codes for you and if no codes are present I would start by replaceing the spark plugs and check all the wires,cap and rotor button and replace if needed.

autozone

go to autozone, they have a tool lending service. basically,you pay for the tool, but when you get done with it they give you all your money back. i couldnt figuire out my sputtering problem, so i borrowed a code reader and replaced what it told me to replace. that easy! hope that helps!

Newbie with a technical question

I bought a 98 Wrangler TJ SE a few weeks back. I love this thing but something is troubling me. Sometimes when I start out driving it feels like it isn't getting any gas. I really don't know how to describe it other than stalling or sputtering (not really a technical description). It usually fixes itself after a few seconds. I guess what I am looking for is someone to point me in the right direction about how to diagnose it. Thanks.
