Soo i just recently bought an 88 yj with a 4.2l i6. I have noticed a pretty bad leak coming from the rear main seal area. I have not had time to pull it apart yet but that is what i am thinking it is. the engine has 330k kms (i am in canada) but it was also sitting for about six months. Now I know i have the know how to fix this problem but I have been reading on multiple online spots about how to do it. The only question i really have is whether I have to loosen all main caps or just the rear main cap?? and if it is just the rear main cap do I still retorque all of them when I am done or seeing as it would only be the outside do I only have to retorque that one cap?
Would anyone know if and what year of Cherokee model tie rods would fit my 89 yj?
welcome to the boards... first, please fill out your profile so we all know just what you're working with.
next, when asking a question, it's best to start your own thread on it for a couple reasons:
- not to "thread-jack" someone else's thread
- asking your question within someone else's thread, your question is likely to get lost as nobody will know the question is in here (it won't show up on the main forum list)
as for your actual question, sorry, I don't know

So it definitely was the rms. Shortly after i posted this my jeep started puking oil after a small back road drive. Got it fixed and now onto the next issues... Worn out suspension and a problem witb some pinging and lack of power... But have good compression... Just keep moving forward and by the time i get it all fixed it should be time to do it all over again. ;-)
