1989 MJ Stalling Issue

Recommended Posts

I have an 89' Pioneer 4x4 with 4.0 and AX15.  I just picked the truck up in July and have been going through it to make it a reliable daily driver.  It has just over 100k on it and I knew the original owner.  It was parked 5 years ago because it was running sluggish and rough.  When I got it the fuel pump was not working so I dropped the tank and replaced the pump / found the tank was rusted and replaced it.  I swapped over to 4 hole injectors and put a new fuel regulator in along with all new fuel line connectors etc.  I also did Cruiser's upgrades (cleaned connectors, new power and ground wires, went through the fuse box etc).  The truck runs great and starts up instantly.  However when the truck is warming up it will randomly shut off or go to 100-200 RPMS when you push in the clutch after you have been driving down the road.  If I drive the truck and let the clutch catch and gear it down that way the issue is never there.  Once she is warm I do not seem to have this issue.  Also, my idle is slightly high at ~900 RPM.  I have been through crank case lines and all vac lines I can replace, next is TB gasket and cleaning.  I have not checked the TPS yet if that helps.

All plugs and wires etc have been replaced. Had the coil go bad and swapped it all out while I was in there. The IAC looks newish but I know that doesn’t mean anything. I’ll see what the TB does and go from there.

Clean the throttle body and IAC. Make sure your intake manifold bolts haven't loosened up.

I need to check that to. Thanks for the reminder. Hopefully I can get back on it this weekend. I’m in the process of reworking the cab and I need to get the interior back in.
