It all started sometime in december when I went out for some muddin' and I found this innocent-looking stretch of ice. I've run through it before but it was shallower and only water. This time I floored it to get a good start and made it about 1/3 of the way without breaking through. When it did I was too suprized to watch the tach, but my friend said it reached 7500
Well I knew that was the time to stop so I backed up and let it sit for a minute running. It's been doing fine ever since but when I turn it off I hear a tickticktick that slowly dies away, which I think may be a mis-seated valve releasing compression.
Just yesterday the check engine light came on. It's done this before so I opened the hood, checked everything real good and went on my merry little way. Just today I was going uphill in 5th gear pulling about 2.6K revs when the engine sputtered big time. I put it in 4th and the same thing happened
. I quickly turned off the highway and took it slow all the way home. Nothing happened until I just pulled onto my street. I heard a loud knocking when I slowed down to turn which continued until I put it into reverse. The whole Jeep shook and it knocked REAL loud so I turned it off and coasted into my spot
. This was 15 minutes ago and I'm still too scared to try to start it and diagnose further.
