I have a 1990 Jeep Cherokee that is lifted 3.5'' with 31's that I've been trying to trade for a small truck, only because I got in to motocross and I need a truck.
Anyways, a guy offered me a 2000 s10 ZR-2 with 107,xxx miles on it, seems to run pretty good, but it has some body issues. The drivers door was peeled off backwards so it's been replaced, and it was rear ended and has no bumper. The frame looks like it was a little tweaked but nothing past the shackles.
Also, when I was driving it, the steering wheel has some play and the driver side wheel seemed to have some play in it, thinking maybe wheel bearing?
not to much, had a blazer with the 4.3 in it. Used it as a beater, and it had horrible looking rusty anitfreeze in it but never overheated and always ran fine. Its a snappy engine with decent power..other than that i have no clue about there tranys or axles..
i had an 88 waggy and hated the renix and all of it vacuums. i would spend the 20 dollars and get a fuel pressure gauge..then test the O2 sensor with a meter... something else i ran into was brittle vacuum lines anything with cracks in it will suck unwanted air that could cause issues...
Freshen up your ground wires as well. Replace the braided wire at the rear of the block thats attached to the firewall with a thicker battery ground wire..scrape off the paint from te firewall before you put it on.
Clean up the throttle body and the TPS...hows the airfilter..its the little things like that that can add up..
The throttle body is clean, air filter is good. I just replaced the distributor cap and rotor, plugs, plug wires, fuel filter. Idk what else to do really. I'm also going to replace the o2 tomorrow, just to do it.
I really would like to keep this Jeep, if I can figure out how to squeeze out a few more MPG's I will. I just got a trailer and a hitch hauler, so I CAN get my bikes around, I just keep going broke trying to do so.
