nameless Posted January 15, 2010 Share Posted January 15, 2010 i did lots of google searches couldn't find anything, maybe i'm blind idk, maybe you guys can help me out 88mj, ax15 swap, 4.0L last night finished the tranny swap, figured we'd go play around in just some easy stuff, touch the dirt then head back. started it up, it was idling at 2,000 rpms... figured it was an automatic choke or something bout a minute later it dropped to around 750rpms, figured this was good. got about 10 minutes from my house and the idle, (neutral or clutch in) would rev back to 2,000... it was also pulling like crazy being the high rpms. got to the dirt, idle stayed up, flexed out (first time for the 'manche) in the dirt, and it was on 31's, had more to it but was ontop of the rock continued up the trail about 5 minutes, when i was moving in first gear the motor was holding at about 1,500 rpms pulling me got up the hill a little ways and the jeep just lost everything, idle was bouncing between 250-750, give it gas, nothing really happened, just seemed to bog it out a bit if anything just sat and sputtered... got it down the hill in neutral with the motor running for power breaks and steering. something weird was when i would slowly let the clutch out in 1st gear it would kick back up, pull the jeep for a second (running normal) then die back out after about 2-3 seconds we just got done with the tranny and i personally think it MIGHT be something with the clutch? don't think it was properly bled, but don't know why that would make it idle and sputter poorly. also i was running it with the exaust off at the 'doughnut' or whatever, so just the downpipe. any ideas? sensors? sorry for the long jumbled post, just trying to describe what is going on, thank you guys Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
