Question about 2001 Jeep Wrangler

1 Answer

2001 jeep wrangler hesitating and stalling out...feels like it is not getting any gas and is running very rich

Was driving down the road when problem first started. the check engin light came on so i took it into the shop. the mecinac told me it was the Crank position sensor so i changed that out and my car was running fine. i took my car to get gas and filled the tank as soon as i was leaving the gas station the problem started again and was even worse. any ideas on what i might need to be looking for?? The car jumps and hesitates when trying to drive and it fells like there is no power when i give the car gas. when i do give it gas there is a rich gas smell.

Take it to an accredited service center and have the fault codes read
guessing just costs money and seldom fixes the fault

SOURCE: hesitation, stalling like out of gas

Clogged Catalytic Converter. What happens is as you push down harder on the accelerator you force more gas into the system causing a slightly richer mixture and more exhaust flow is neccessary. The easiest way to look for a clogged cat is when it's dark out take it for a ride causing it perform it's problem look under the vehicle if the cat is literally glowing red hot you either have a clogged cat or an extremely rich fuel mixture.

Aaron, I had the same problem. It is the most expensive part of course the computer. I replaced everything as well till I replaced it. They are remanufactured and have had problems with them as well. I am on my third one now at 200k miles. Oh and by the way it does not show up on the diagnostic check. Good luck

Put the key in the ignition and turn it on and off (3) times without starting the jeep, leaving it in the on position count the (1) flashing indicator Light, Eg: (5) flashes, Then there will be a pause, then it may flash (3) times, this is a code #53. Keep your Eye on them and write them down. If you should miss (1) Repeat as many times as needed, Info: A #55 means there are no codes!!

Check out the EVAP system to see if you have a broken charcoal canister or cracked vacuum line. Also check for vacuum leaks.. Those would cause hesitation, stalling. Read this post on EVAP

Check fuel filter . You have a mechanical pump & a carburetor on that model dont you?...Check fuel pressure (should be around 6-7 lbs) and check coil immediately after it shuts down...sometimes coils will act like that just before they go bad..

It does sound like a vacuum leak. Get a can of WD-40 and start spraying around the carb. It will rev up, and U can pin point the loose vacuum hose, are crack vacuum hose.

1999 Jeep wrangler runs rough


Check the gas, could be water in it or drive the car with a fuel pressure tester connected to it and watch to see if you lose pressure.
Normal pressure while driving is about 30 to 40 psi
