1999 WJ Limited 4.0 w/ 248K miles
Replaced oil sender, rebuild front driveshaft, Alternator, water pump

Don't know other maintenance since I just bought it for $800. I will say all the fluids are very clean but the rear diff makes noises. That'll be my summer project to rebuild.

Havnt check this thread in a while.....
I gotta tell ya its a bit frustrating that some people just simply cant follow directions, We have had mods babysit threads in past years and delete posts that did not follow the initial rules set forth.....Maybe we gotta do that here.


My purpose of this thread is to make a reference point for new owners and current owners and maybe a database of :
mileage accomplished with X brand and weight of oil
(allot of oil debates around here)
common failure points per year and engine
(helps with a PREVENTATIVE maintenance schedule)
how does maintenance affect all of the above
over all lifespan of components
and so forth !

Allot of us guys that have been here for several years like to have reference points to send newbies to rather than posting the same info all the time.

PLEASE just simply follow the rules listed, If not please dont post !!
There in the very first post with an example following....

I'm looking for people who know there vehicle and have owned it for a long time or since new.

QUOTE=billzcat1;wsar10 is right on point on this oil thread - as usual. Anyone reading this would be well-served taking his advice.

160k as of last month, it has been an absolute beast this winter

never a major failure with the vehicle besides cracked heater core that needed to be swapped out a few years back

always maintained at dealer

oh yeah and it needed a new half axle at some point that was covered under warranty, never figured out what happened there i was a teenager (an idiot)
