89JEEPYJ Its running ok know. I've come to realize that with all the upgrades, I am not getting hot enough spark to allow it to drive the way it should. I have 8mm wires and high performance stuff, witch doesn't help. So know I am gonna try the HEI kit. When mu past coil was cracked it was arcing out allowing more voltage to flow to spark plugs, and the truck temporaraly turned into a race car. It was sooooooo fast (can't be driving around with those huge sparks coming out of the coil though

kik An 89 4.2 doesn't have one. It could be the coil, but most likely it's a bad Ignition Control Module.

does a 89 YJ have a flywheel position sensor

hello i have a 1989 jeep wrangler with a 258. automatic transmission. recently everyone once and a while the truck will not accelerate. it starts and idles perfect. but once u put it in gear it just becomes messed up. when it starts acting up it gets wurse as it gets warmer. yesterday it ran super fast after i did a full tune up. i was smoking the tires witch i have never done before(cant even spin the tires a tiny bit usaully). and than 10 seconds later the truck would instantly die if u touch the gas. i was thinking it could either be the flywheel position sensor or a bad coil, any ideas. at this point it is running good again, but i dont want to have another relapse of this when i am not at home.
