Bought a 98 ZJ limited on Tuesday, 110k, 5.2. Basically to use as a DD/ winter beater so i could get my Challenger off the road before it gets too nasty. Here's what I know about the car:
Original owners towed it behind a camper, and took excellent care of it, and left record of it in the notes section of the manual. They fed it synthetic, swapped the wheels and put new shocks under it in '04, must have sold it not long after. The son of the people I bought it from owned it after that, and he lived in Arizona or something, and he sold it to his parents where it became his Mother's daily driver.
Truck is Immaculate inside and out. Leather is perfect, body is in great shape. Drives straight, K&N intake, Pioneer radio (no lockpick however), fairly new battery, remote start.
Haven't been able to really get under it since I work so much. Drove it back and forth to work twice already (40 mile highway trip each way). Oil pressure good, temp good. Here's what i've come up with to check more into, I know some of this is in the stickies i just have to find it.
Had to top off the ATF and power steering fluid, neither were severely low, but the atf was getting close.
Driver door hangs, but just a little.
Heat worked great on the test drive, and it does get sort of warm now, but it doesn't get hot. (again car runs at 210 right on the money)
throttle will surge 200 rpm while under cruise control. saw something about cleaning the IAT i will try that when i get a day off.
Seat heater seems to not work
There is a "clack" noise when I'm under braking coming from behind the driver's side dashboard kind of high up (not necessarily in the dashboard). Not a loud noise just strange.
Don't expect i'll ever need this tow rig in the front bumper, can it be removed?
I have a fog light switch, but cannot locate any fog lights.
Any help would be appreciated, mostly just introducing myself.
