what would you guys do...
So I have a 95 zj, already rebuilt the trans, 3.5 inch lift, 31s. Very basis build. I blew the original motor in December with 154xxx on it. It developed a minor tap I could hear at idle and couple days later...you get the idea. Had a jy unit with" guaranteed" 80-90k on it installed. Over the past couple days, call it maybe paranoia, but I'm noticing the small slight tap developing. Is it possible I got a motor with the same problem as before? This click sound doesn't seem like its coming from the head like before. Its louder towards the oil pan. At this point I'm listening to all possibilities of what it could be via your guys experience. I'm already into this truck about 5k including labor cost give or take. Worst case scenario..would you rebuild or just say screw it and buy a new one? If I buy a new zj ied feel like I just wasted all that money. Torn on what to do.
