Hi everyone, well turns out my lifter tap turned out to be a broken piston, after installing a new crank and lifters!!
Car is 2001 Grand 4.0 ltd done 102000 miles with full dealer history.
i have read a few threads on here and understand that the pistons in this year car were weak!!!
No 4 piston is in bits in the sump so will need to replace it, my question is where do I buy one or 6 pistons with rings from and the right price and is there a stronger version that I should install or have Jeep rectified the problem?
Me being from England struggle to get cheep parts or any helpfull info so some help would be great.
I have had a look on globaljeepparts.com is this the right place to help???
I'll recommend Falcon automotive parts 800-756-1114. They're in Florida and I don't know about international shipping but thats where I got my parts from when the same thing happened to me. They have awesome prices and great customer service.

I dunno if you missed my post recommending Falcon...but their prices are the best you'll find. When I called around the local auto parts stores (NAPA, Autozone, etc) the pistons were ~ $45 each. I got the same piston (Speed Pro) for ~ $16 from Falcon. And for whats its worth, I'd REALLY recommend replacing all of them while you're in there. You'd hate to have this happen again.
