Question type: Maintenance & Repair

97 jeep grand Cherokee acts like its flooding
out when it gets hot . Gas smells old but I
have changed the throttle positioning sensor  
and catalytic converter what else could it be.

1 Answer


fuel injection...there is a sensor and of course carbureted there is a thermal spring and heat riser and butterfly that closes when it gets hot...that's the carburetor...take a look at the thermal spring~ there is an "air temperature" sensor that might be our culprit http://www.quadratec.com/products/917221_03.htm? sgsc=C6Z06ZR1C6Z06ZR1&utm_medium=compshop&utm_sour ce=googlemerchant&gclid=Cj0KEQiA6vS2BRDH8dq06YDHz_IBE iQAzNdBmd7byCfqdRhoDD2RiAd2vvMgmr1A5GxkiRNv3QplgnU aAt4v8P8HAQ
