It's really hard to do an at-home alignment if your power goes out and you can't see your tires.

I know the feeling, but I work 4 10 hour days and have all day friday to work on the jeep and still have saturday to do house work and sunday to do jeep/house/relax/and whatever the gf wants to do since thats the one day I let her decide what to do

I had to do the allignment on my 96 in the dark, a flash light and a friend made it tolerable.

This week I worked 8, 8, 16, 8, 16

8hr is 530am-130pm and 16 is 530-930.


But I'm also off Thursday-Monday next week because of the holiday.

Painting the new TB bracket as we speak to put it on.

When I try to start the Jeep recently (past week or so), it doesn't seem to want to start. Cranks but makes a horrible noise, usually starts fine the second time I crank it.

To me it sounds like somethings slipping and not the actual starter.

CPS
Timing Chain
Starter

Which is most likely?
