Hello ATS .
I have a question for some of the older members whom are familiar with Older Jeeps. I'm not to automotively inclined so any suggestions is greatly appreciated.
I have an 85 CJ7- automatic, inline 6, 4.2 l. With Part time 4x4, with 58,000. Km. On it.
I have noticed an issue taking place when I hit a larger bump, the transmission pops out of drive and goes into second. I haven't noticed anything specific, although it does happen when I'm traveling at hiway speeds and hit a pothole. Then I hear the engine revving high and look at my shifter and sure enough it's in second.
So I quickly have to shift it back into drive.
All fluids are good, tranny fluid specifically.
2nd issue - stalling.
Just recently the jeep has started stalling. It's also idling rough.
It will sometimes stall when at a red light on an incline, as well when slowly making a turn, even sometimes immediately after starting it, I'll jump out to let it warm up for a minute and as soon as I take my foot off the gas it will sputter and die.
But as long as I keep my foot on the gas while doing any of the above, it won't stall out.
One thing I remember thinking was that it happens more often when it's wet/damp out.
The past week or so - it has been rainy here.
Hence why I noticed this happening a lot more than it had in the past.
Any ideas for any of the issues ?
