Its got the 2.5 4cyl and its a automatic. 4 wheel drive works. Thats about what I know about it....... Engine has a knock. It goes away when I put the car in drive or apply the gas?????? Oil pressure only goes to about a quarter on the gauge. yes Im planning on a oil pump. I have plans to go through this entire jeep. It has 120k. Now the knock a lifter maybe??? The other thing is when I shift into drive and have the brake applied she stalls sometimes or trys too. Im not use to these automatic transmissions. My last wrangler had a 5 speed. I loved it. This automatic shifts hard it feels like it goes from first to third. Opinions??? I also require a front drivers fender. The frame is perfect. No rust at all. Thats why I got it. I plan on tearing this thing down to nothing and rebuilding it the way I like it. Any help with the current issues and tips for the future would be appreciated. Thank you
ok so 33 is an a/c I dont have. 12 is recent battery disconnect. 55 is end of codes. From what I have researched. So Im all good in the eyes of the comp. Thanks for the help guys. Im going to go try to pinpoint the knock. I will post when I find it.
Okay sounds like the noise is coming from the top near one of the exhaust valves in the head. Im not sure if its echoing but I can hear it in the oil pan as well. What are the possibility's? I only want to tear apart this engine once. I had planned on the lifters. although Im going to check the push rods and springs while im in there. But im kind of worried because like I said the oil pressure is pretty low. I wonder how long it was driven like that. The oil is fresh so I cant tell anything by looking at the oil. clear exhaust though.
It was so hard to pinpoint the noise because the engine is so tiny.
Is the noise coming more from the front or rear of the engine? If it comes from the front then to me it sounds like you're describing a stretched/worn out timing chain. Especially since it goes away when you throttle up.
Well the dying when put into drive feels a lot like when your in a five speed and you try to take off without the gas on the pedal. That and the taking a Hugh amount of time to shift from first with a hard kick and whining. Im guessing transmission and or torque converter. But that knock I cant seem to decide on. I was thinking lifter or timing chain but your right it is deep. Its so hard to pinpoint like I said above because im use to v8s and this thing is tiny. Thanks again
My friends 95 Auto did the same. Felt like it missed second gear and would stall engine right out when put in gear and foot on brake...He just droped the pan and changed oil and filter...ran great after that for the past 3 years!!
