Need some help from Jeep guys
Hello, I'm new to this website. I have recently started a new business scrapping cars and selling parts. I have a dilemma and I'm sure someone here will be able to help. I have recently purchased a 2 wheel drive 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee limited. I must be honest, I bought it with the intention of removing some parts and sending it to shred.
I don't think this Jeep deserves that. Although not a Jeep guy, I am a car and truck guy and I appreciate decent vehicles. If it were 4wd I would not hesitate to fix it. It has a 5/15 virginia state inspection sticker and the tires are still roadworthy.
Here is the problem. It has a 318 that has been overheated and likely needs a head gasket at the least. The body is in pretty good shape, not beat up, not rusted. The interior is fair, the drivers seat is rough but the rest is just dirty. It seems to have some electrical issues, like the heater/ ac fan doesn't work and the electric locks are intermittent.
My question is this, would the 318 be worth the fix? If not what parts interchange with a 4wd?
I really hate to see this vehicle go to shred but I have to make a living. Any help is appreciated
