NavyAg I had similar problem with my 90 YJ with the 4.2. It turned out to be the engine misfiring caused by arcing within the distributor cap. I had a stock cap and rotor and all was fine as long as I was not putting any load on the engine. However when I tried to lug the engine or accelerate it, it would buck until I down shifted. I did the Team Rush upgrade and it immediately made a huge difference. Just this mod alone eliminated all misfirings and problems lugging the engine at low rpm's. Do a google search and read how simple this mod is. I did mine with all salvage yard parts and probably spent a total of $20. Good luck in fixing yours.

90 YJ Little Issue Accelerating...

While driving when I try to push the gas pedal about half way or more it acts like its bogging and it kinda bucks a little bit. So I have to either down shift or let the pedal back out. It does it in all gears. Not sure if the carb might need messed with. It has the 6 cyl engine in it if that makes a difference.

Thanks in advance to anyone who replies...
