2001 Grand Cherokee

Hello all! My name is Derek and I am coming from the Audi world of life! I am looking at an everyday driver for my son, who is now 20 years old. I found a 2001 Grand Cherokee with 130,000 and 4.7 V8 for $5995. Ithink it's a good price. I looked over the vehicle and the only thing I found wrong was the driver side window was off track.

My question is ... Are these motors as bullet proof as the famous IL 6? The motor sounded very quiet and very promising.

My son recently had a SAAB and was replacing something on that POS almost every week it seemed like.

If these motors are solid.. What are some good preventative measures and what should I expect as far as maintenance? He plans on keeping the vehicle for 4 years or so.. until college is done.

This is a limited model by the way.

I took it on another test drive today with my OBD2 and this came up.

P1499 hydraulic cooling fan solenoid circuit An open or shorted condition detected in the cooling fan control solenoid circuit.

Also, is the 4LO supposed to Jolt alot, especially when turning as well as be sensitive? ( I've never owned a 4x4 )

Thanks a bunch for the answers.
