When it rains .....

First off thank you Troy for saving my ass , just when you think your down ,
another pop in the gut .

Just when I saw the silver lining at the end of the day and Troy rolls off in my last project truck I focus my attention on my 92 , finishing the serpentine belt
and getting it ready for the road , I crank the 92 MJ up to head out and the throttle sticks and sends the motor high almost throwing a rod , so needless to say my last Jeep is done .

I may sell it if I have a buyer ...

Almost threw a rod out the block . Barley limped it home but you can't step on the gas without allot of vibration .

Re: When it rains .....

How do you almost throw a rod? It does or it doesn't.

How's the compression?

and check the valvetrain. I've pumped lifters, had lifters stuck in the bore from over-revving. It barely ran until I put some ATF in the oil.

Think positive, sort out the problem before you stick a fork in it.

Re: When it rains .....

Sounds likes valve train issue to me, but I would definitely check it out before giving up on it.

Re: When it rains .....

Yeah, if it ain't knocking...... the bottom end is likely fine. I suppose with a super high rev you could have stretched or floated the timing chain and skipped a tooth or two which would make it run like that.

I sure hope you don't have to bail on your '92. That'd truely be a shame.

Re: When it rains .....

I don't want to give up on that truck but an economical solution might be a better switch considering my predicament .

I'm sure its either valve train or slack in timing causing the idling and rough , either of witch
I'll need time and help with that .
