Well his actually sounds like its missing/running rough if you listen carefully to the engine. You said yours is running strong as ever. I don't know if you're going to be able to see a crack clearly but I encourage you to go for it and see what you can find.

Yup

FOund out something else:
When searching use "whistle" VS "Squeal" or "Screech"

I thought I was teh 1st Jeep owner to have this issue
After all my reading it seems it COULD be the manifold gasket

I was looking forward to finishing up my fog lamp install, guess I get to wrench on the head tomorrow

Bought my wife's a 660 amp battery.
Pull the fuse for any radio/amp whatever you have audio wise. It sounds like you could have picked up interference through your audio system. I know it sounds wacky but, it happened to me. Turned out to be a picked the "wrong" 12v source.

Also, A similar noise that my 95 always made im 99% sure is the throttle flappet acting as a whistle when you are engine braking. It started when I put on a OAI. Besides that All I can think of is vacuum leaks but I have never actually found a sound that high pitched coming from a vacuum leak.

WHAT!! Its not that cold out, only 46. I think you're just being lazy :P. And ben...atm=at the moment. Silly.

to stay on topic....i think i get to replace my fuel pump. Mine loves to make bubble blowing noises and growl constantly....yet it always starts without a problem and runs almost perfect. A pressure test will reveal...

Lets see, I got the RC long arm skid mounted, just waiting on the long arms to put the rest of the lift on. Put a few of the little things on to make the lift easier to put on. Also put the PSC pump kit on, I can turn the wheel with no effort! Gonna make turning the 35s easy!

I will get some pictures soon.

replaced the broken heater valve. Only took a couple of minutes and took the first test drive since changing plugs, wires and dist. cap. Runs great now, no more hesitation accelerating. I didn't flush the system after changing the valve and refilling antifreeze (almost empty) - should I burp it or is it not necessary if the heater works and there's no evidence of overheating? 94 HO btw.
