Does it sit outside at night?
Yes it does sit outside at night. I have tried that before and it didn't do it than. I haven't tried it again thou recently. The mech. said that when he did my engine that the transmission was good. Would he have noticed anything when he did the flush and cleaned it out? I know that this jeep has never had a transmission flush since I owned it and the person whoever had this before must have been rough with it. I've had to replace the engine because it had a tapping and it went out after two in half years. It was a 4.0 6cly. I also just had the tie rods replaced, and fuel injectors cleaned. I had to take it in last week because when I was coming home from work, I stopped at the grocery store and when I left my jeep stated shaking bad, had no power and I could not go over 55. It also had a burning smell.
When I took it around before I took it in, it was also stopping when I tried going 60, it would start breaking and i wasnt even touching the brake.
So the mech. said the engine was fine. The computer showed a bad gas cap, also fuel injectors needed to be cleaned, and than he said the transmission fluid was almost black and needed to be done. I just don't understand why it would still make that grinding sound if I had the tansmission flushed if it was the transmission. It does run a little rough at stop lights. I know the spark plugs have not been changed since i had it. Could that have something to do with it also running rough at the stop lights?
Also I posted something else on the forum about a bad rubber smell in the back tire on the passnger side? Any ideas for that? I have not changed the breaks and they do need to be done.
