My XJ was doing the whole multiple cylinder misfire and it ended up being my CPS was shot. After changing it no more multiple cylinder misfire codes.

Puddle was a little deeper than I thought. And the fact there was mud under the water didn't help lmao.

So what ended up happening with your transmission? Nice build in the ZJ. Any plans to lock the front?

As of now, since the flush and the additive, the trans is shifting super awesome, grabbing hard, nice firm shifts. LOVE it. I do plan on locking the front at some point... School/tools are still occupying my money for now. I guess it does not help that I just bought an itouch to replace the flooded ipod... or a new snowboard today. LOL.

But yes, I would love to lock the front.

LOL I think it would help if you posted up more of the conversation....

Got my two winter essentials




I still dont know what to do about my misfires... Maybe I will try swapping plug wires next or something along those lines. It runs fine.

Hey Pat, what all did he have to do mechanically after rolling the WJ. I Just put my Zj on the side I am not even kidding, like about an hour ago. Anyways, i am going to start a build thread here in the next couple days, and i will tell more details then. Everyone is safe, I righted it then checked oil and tranny fluid. both low, tranny fluid everywhere. It seems to be leaking fluid right where the bellhousing comes together, where the tranny cooler lines pass underneath. I will have pics soon, but i was wondering what was normal for a rollover. body damage equals a smashed in driverside rear door and window, adn rocker panel dented bad. So i can basically just replace door and then repair rockers. I was gonna herculine the cladding area/fenders as i will be trimming soon
