A write up on that would a welcome addition. i mean, right under that thread was a thread asking for the torque value of a power steering pump. really?
It seems like they just don;t add to the facts any more, maybe cuz they think people don,t read the facts
Hay ! would you put in a link to the torque specification thread ? EDIT: found the thread

Time to bring this thread back to the head of the class again. Seems like many are asking for help on stall/no-start problems and ZeeJay has a ton of useful info in this thread.

Thanks for the bump Uni, I have been fine tuning the article here and there. Adding more detail when I see an opportunity for clarification. If people would read it and do what it says, we would be golden. I've seen a couple of instances where a dirty dozen fix was made after a long string of posts and the op claimed to have read the article. Must be the rise in A.D.D. cases nowadays.

Yeah Zee, noticed you've been updating your thread and looking better all the time. Don't know why users want a quick fix to their problems yet refuse to read to solve them. It's getting a little old telling them to go back and read your thread when the link was already posted.

Still don't know why your thread isn't a sticky? Are you more likely to have ZJ stall/no-start problems or swap out your differential?? Not degrading that great thread/sticky at all but believe your thread is a whole lot more relevant to many of the problems we're seeing here.

What did you guys do before there were forums? Every car i've ever had had a forum to help me fix it. And there's always a couple major guru's that seem to know almost everything about the vehicle.

Come to think of it... internet forums and fuel injection began around about the same time, didn't they? or at least the forums came around when the fuel injected cars started getting older and buggier.

Thks zeejay ....i did 6 swapping the mods in the pdc ...same thing ..I don't have an engine trouble light ..runs great in the yard at idle but once you put in drive and take off the engine will go smooth for about 1 minute and then slows way down, can't take gas and I think it pops thru the carb.

1908 grand cherokee stalling

Hi ..I've come to the conclusion that it runs perfect at idle and also takes gas giiving a high idle when in park. No problems at all, but when I put it in gear for about 100 yards it starts to stall ...poping in carb..no excileration for about 1 or 2 minutes..then that clears up and it runs good. I have not read any feedback that actually relates to this problem. Can you give it one more thought..I hate to think of a $300.00 bill when I'm 70 years old on a retired military budget!

Thanks

I got bored and reordered the dirty dozen, took out some distracting content, added a few details.
