    My 1988 Jeep Grand Wagoneer won't idle and or stay running unless I feather the gas. I've already replaced the ignition system, the air intake manifold, re built the carburetor, replaced the coil, fuel filter, starter and distributor. I've tested the fuel pressure and compression and have changed the plugs also replaced the spark plug wires. Engine was replaced with a new amc360 engine not too longa go along with a new transmission. Running out of ideas to try

    I would check to be sure the carb is set up correctly. I would also spray some carb cleaner around the base of the carb and the intake specifically but check everything for a vac leak. Sounds like a lot of work has been done under the hood and sometimes things get missed
