My Jeep Disappointment?

Well, I LOVED my Jeep. Strong, powerful, cute and sexy. But then she let me down!

It's a '98 and only had 117,000 miles on her. Then she started dying while in drive!

My mechanic could not figure out the problem. We flashed the computer and still -- the problem remained. With safety now compromised I had to admit defeat and turn her in for a new car.

I got a Ford Escape hybrid and I HATE it. I'm taking it back and I'm gonna get another Jeep because that's what I want. Even still.

Larry's Comment: Good for you MJS!

Even a broken Jeep that can be fixed is a better deal than most hybrid cars in my opinion.

How far do you think that Ford Escape could get on the Rubicon Trail anyway?

Jeep dying while driving
by: YJ Bantum

I had the same problem with my YJ. Just driving for a while and the engine would just quit. The key wouldn't turn over, but after awhile of setting she would start right up. I went through 3 mechanics and couldn't figure it out. I did everything over the span of a year, finally found the problem. It was the fuel pump combined with the fuel pressure sending unit. I had about 140,000 miles on it.
