1995 Jeep Wrangler Question: Why did my Jeep fail emissions?



, 2.5L 4 Cylinder, Brighton, CO, January 23, 2012, 11:13

'95 Jeep Wranger with 155,000 miles failed emissions due to to much HC GPM readings (3.3177 vs. the allowable 2.000). What could be the problem? Coming out of 1st gear, about 1/2 way through, there is a loss of power. Could this be a fuel injector or catalytic converter problem?

    Improper ignition timing, defective ignition components, lean fuel mixture, defective catalytic converter can all cause high hydrocarbons.
