Maybe when I start slowing down with stuff to do to the zj ill grab one. I do have a single shot break over I got years ago. Got it as a Christmas present when I was 8 I believe.

My kid sister was taking an SAT, so I went to go pick her up when she was done. And right as I get to the end of the street that leads out of my neighborhood, it dies. Either the IAC or TPS has committed suicide, because it'll start with the throttle open, but die if I let it off. It's close enough to home that I can get it home with the chain, but it's so ironic. I have a V8 parts Jeep coming some time next week. So now I have to either not drive anywhere (doable I guess) for a week and a half while I wait on the V8 and do the swap, or buy a new sensor or valve that I'll only need for a week.

I think I'm gonna try and buy a sport coupe I saw on local craigslist. I've missed driving stick and I need something more fuel efficient to get around in. Not that I'll get rid of the Jeep or anything, but I'm in a rut.

Yup. Just got a rear-ended parts ZJ with a running 5.2 powertrain in it, so as soon as that shows up, it's getting stripped for what I need and the swap will begin.

Sweet. What all is needed to swap a 5.2 into a 4.0 zj? All the wiring need changed?

Drove here to the junkyard today. Snooped around in all the ZJ's there. There was five 5.2Ls and one 4.0l. No cup holder inserts or cubbys, and all of the hitch bars were severely rusted out. I did score some factory fogs though to replace the ones the PO broke off..

Yeah. You've gotta change the engine / trans, and then the entire engine wiring harness (just within the engine bay, IIRC, the other stuff is the same). Basically, you need a whole parts ZJ to do it reasonably, that way you can just swap over anything you find you need to while you're going through it.

When I was putting the new motor in mine i was really surprised at how lil wiring was really in there. Once the motors out it looks waaaay less intimidating!

When mine was doing that I found the solution in this video

and a beer!


I would think you would have the noise in 2wd if it was the pinion or the front output bearing of the tc, as those parts are always moving. Does it do it in all 4wd ranges?

Changing the motor in this case is the same as swapping in any factory option motor into any car, after the invention of Electronic Fuel Injection. You need the following:

Motor
Transmission
Engine wiring harness
Transmission wiring harness (where applicable)
Engine Control Unit
Appropriate exhaust system
Appropriate motor mounts

Rarely, a manufacturer will also have different driveshafts depending on model, or sometimes things will be drastically different (I'm looking at you Isuzu). Other times, you don't even need anything behind the motor because that's all the same on all the different models. (I love you Nissan)

For the Jeep, I know I need the 5.2, its mounts, its tranny, its wiring, and its PCM. That's all that's required. That said, I'll also be using its axles (3.73, possibly a rear posi, versus my open 3.55s) and I'll be grabbing a few bits from around and inside the parts Jeep as well. I figured I'd get a whole parts Jeep because it'd cost the same as just finding a motor from a Dakota or something.

Anybody into sport coupes from the 80's and 90s? I'm trying to find something I like that has 5 speeds, 4 cylinders, 3 pedals, 2 doors, and 1 low center of gravity, and while I came from that scene, I don't know what I like anymore. I've recently discovered the Ford Sierra was imported as the Merkur XR4Ti and that has me interested, but the only guy in the state that has one has a fairly lame one, especially for his asking price. Any ideas beyond the whole S13/14 vs RX7 thing? I've already done that.
