I really like the idea of someone working on things themselves and not relying on other people especially when it comes to something we depend on alot, which Is why I bought a jeep. Again, lol.

I actually made it a goal of mind to just learn as much as I can about maintaining a jeep Cherokee, I want to avoid,bills, asking for rides everyday to work, having to call and see whats going on, and worst of all going back time and time because its not fixed....that sucks *** my-friends.
The more maintenance you do, the less your chances are of being stranded. Sure things happen, and mechanical parts failing are not always avoidable. One big thing with XJs is the cooling system. Change your coolant every other year and you will be in good shape. The Cherokee cooling system is just barely enough to keep the engine cool. This means there isn't any room for neglect, which often leaves people stranded on the side of the road during an overheat.

Fluids are the lifeblood of your vehicle. Keep fluids in good condition, as well as wear items such as brakes, tires, etc, and you will be in good shape.

between all the forums and google, you tube videos etc theres plenty of ways to see how to fix it / diagnose it yourself usually. like tonight , my 93 civic stalled out on me in the driveway. it would crank but no restart. i googled "civic stalled no start" and after reading a few forums and following some basic checks it lead to a ICM failing once it gets hot. sure enough thats what the problem was. if i didnt know how to fix it i would have to pay $100 for a tow, $50-100 for a diagnose , labor rate to install the part + mark-up on the part.
