There's an old saying about Jeeps and it goes like this....

Jeeps are like herpes, sure it will play up from time to time, but you will never get rid of it.....

just got 412km out of a tank of fuel around town. big improvement on the 330km or so i have been getting lately.
You might not believe it but if the map sensor line is NOT perished to the point it leaks, the engine runs better, makes more power and uses less fuel.

been waiting for an engine stumble/miss to get bad enough to warrant fixing,,,it would stumble on uphill at part throttle nearly all the time...(for a few months)

today, it felt like it was having a total miss at idle every so often, and was stumbling/missing had nearly all the time.

that feels like a big miss I thought !.. lets start with the coil, should b easy

bit tricky to get unbolted, so i just wired in a cracked old spare, and tied it on with wire

runs like a dream, no hint of a miss or stumble, engine has noticeably more power..AND up to correct temp instantly, where as prior, it had been running distinctly cool

cant say 100% for certain yet, but looks promising, old one is still bolted in, will swap them about and test
