Does it have round head lights or square? Round is tj square yj. Does not really matter I don't think. Just look for a 91-I think to 98. Your looking for the later model 2.5l engine. There was an earlier version 2.5l that would work but have less power. Then there is also a 2.4l engine in the tjs but I doubt that's what you have.

Thanks. She has round lights so it a TJ. Appreciate the help out there. Do love jeeps tgough. Been drivin Cheerokees for last 7years and traded a Cheerokee Sport for this one, blown engine and all. Seen hee and had to have her. New top and paint, you know, just had to !!!!!!
You'll be cheaper in the long run by replacing it with another four cylinder engine. If you wanted to put a 4.0 six cylinder in, you're also going to have to swap out the tranny and it's not a simple bolt-in affair. The four cylinder is more than adequate for most driving (not trying to turn this into a four vs. six cylinder debate), especially if you're just wanting to drive it during the summer with the top off. That's one of the best things about owning a Jeep - driving with the top off!
For quick and less expensive, swap in the same engine you have. Changes are always more work than you think.
also, strongly recommend either a reman or rebuild yours. A junkyard engine that old is unlikely to be worth the trouble.
