will not start now
I have a 2000 WJ 4.7 that I have major plans for, but I am having this trouble now.
this started with a trip to work where it died in the parking lot as I was talking with a coworker. It started just fine, and I went to the bank 2 blocks away. It died again at the atm, and I could not get it started for 30 minutes or so but it ran just fine getting home.
I started with a fuel fliter and was amazed at what I found "don't want to talk about it" after making hose connections, it al went fine for an hour, it died again, I started checking over the connections all were fine and found the negative battery connection lose, this is what I get for taking it to the local shop. I replaced the terminal on the negative connection, and it started right up and ran fine for 2 days. I went to go see a house and it died with in 2 miles of the house, again about 25-30 minutes later it started up with a sputter. I drove to the house and it died while sitting idle and would not start again.
I notices when I put the key in the on position the fuel gauge stays on E "I just fueled up"
I was thinking that I had a fuel pump issue but the gauge has always shown correctly until now, there is also a smell of not gas but it smell like the engine is flooded.
any help here on this ?
