Customer Question
I have a 91...

I have a 91 wrangler after driving for 5 minutes it’s begins to choke. When I give it gas it sounds like it’s back firing. If I turn it off and turn it on it stops but after driving it again it begins to do the same thing again

Mechanic's Assistant: Has the vehicle turned into a gas hog? And how does it start -- same as usual?

Not a gas hog. It’s cold natured but it starts fine

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Wrangler yourself? What have you tried so far?

I’ve replaced minor things. Spark plugs and wires new catalytic converter. New exhaust.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

The jeep did sit in my garage for about 3 to 4 months with a ful tank of gas. During the winter

ok, the first thing I would do is check the fuel pressure to be sure the pump is working correctly. there is an access port on the fuel rail for the check. you can rent a gauge at a parts store to check the pressure.

What could be causing the fuel pressure to be low?
Jeep Mechanic: roybelding, ASE Certified Technician replied 3 months ago

the fuel pump itself.
