HELP! dies out when making left turns only or going over hills with just driver tires
tonight i was going over some snowy little bumps with just the drivers tires and my 90 yj 2.5l died out...then i noticed everytime i make a left turn it dies as well...right turn no problem...it starts right back up.....its dark as could be right now, but i plan on figuring it out in the am...im hoping just a bad connection on possibly the coil or similar...anyone ever have this problem????please help

Well if it were me I'd strt with fuel. Mine did that for a while because gas sloshes away from pump on a left turn or if the left side is elevated. Still does. But I'd Jack up the driver side and start it. See what happens. Would give u a good starting point.

If your gas guage isn't any more accurate then mine, then it may be empty and reading 1/4 tank.

I remember the first week I had my jeep it did the same thing, I always thought my engine was dying or something, then I put more gas in it and it was just dandy :p

might want to run a bottle of drygas in 'er. Its liquid... just named drygas and it obsorbs any water in the gas. ;)

Also, just to be sure... make sure your battery is tied down because if it shorted against metal it would kill your throttle body while + was touching ground.
