Wj Just got a WJ not long ago and have a couple of questions

1) There is a ticking noise, doesn't seem to be coming from the engine. If it is it is near the back towards the dash. But there is a round metal covering that on the far drivers side attached to the firewall and it is coming from around that area if I hear it right. I have searched a little and found that another guy had the issue but his engine oil and spark plugs proved a bad cause when his motor stopped. The Jeep has only had Mobil 1 synthetic and K&N oil filters with the past owner. I am planning to switch to Castrol Syntec Edge synthetic oil with the same filters. when it is due.

2) My transmission seemed to be jerking just before I would come to a complete stop. I read that it isn't actually the tranny but something like a slenoid maybe? I had the transmission fluid changed and the filter replaced at 75k (which was only about 2 weeks or so ago) and it was doing it before that.

Thanks, :-)

if it a constant tick and does not change when reving the engine it sounds like the purge solenoid. this is normal. some are louder then others and not much you can do about it

That jerking you feel just before you come to a stop could likley be a miss. Check for vacume leaks.
