I apologize in advance for this very lengthy story. I bought a 1999 Jeep wrangler Sahara 2 years ago for $7000. The Vin numbers under my hood and in the back says it’s a 1999 Sahara. The Vin number on my dash is for a 1997 standard edition. My brother who works for a insurance company ran the numbers and my Sahara was totaled out and sold at auction with a salvaged title to a horrible man in SC. The trail for my Sahara ends there. At that point it became the 97 SE. I didn’t realize I had been scammed until 1 year after I purchased it (I’m blond) But going back to the beginning. 2 weeks after buying it the engine blew. I put in a used one it cost me $3000. 2 weeks after that the drive shaft/yoke went out and that cost me $2000. I’m writing all of this because I actually don’t know what parts I have in this thing. It’s a mess. Ever since I bought it my gauges don’t work right the battery and others will either not work at all or go to the highest level. About 2 months ago it started shutting off on me, usually when I stopped hard or turned abruptly. It would just completely shut off, but it would always start right back up. A month ago it started driving real sluggish when I was first accelerating (like it was out of gas) but it would always end up going. Until one day it didn’t. Two weeks ago it stopped all together when I took my foot off the gas. A friend (not really a friend it was some dude at the gas station) put zip ties to open the throttle so I drove it like that for a day, then I cut the zip ties and it was fine. Until it wasn’t. And now it just sits there. I put a new battery in it. I knew that wasn’t the main problem. But it did need to be replaced. I forgot to mention that periodically it wouldn’t start until I moved the battery cables around. So now it cranks but won’t start at all. My drunk brother, (not the insurance brother) I have 2. Anyway the drunk one checked all the fuses, gas pressure, but who knows (he’s always drunk). So if someone, anyone at all can offer me help, then please do. I’m poor, and sad and just want my Jeep to run. Also I’m a woman and not a smart one at that so dumb it down for me. Also please don’t state the obvious “take it to the mechanic” I AM POOR! But seriously any advice at all would be very much appreciated, thank you!! One last thing. If you’re the guy in SC that switched the Vin numbers and sold me this sh&t Jeep, you suck and you belong in Jail!
