Unable to fill. I managed to get about 16 bucks in fuel in there before I got honked at. Also the link http://www.wjjeeps.com/tsb.htm works but clicking on the additional links for detailed info causes the web page to fail. But yes I was unable to put fuel in it. This is after the jeep spent a night outside in minus 15 degrees celcius weather. I almost forgot: "MERRY CHRISTMAS"

I havent had my wj tank out yet, is there an antisiphon valve? I just had a new 2013 rover come off the truck and wouldnt accept fuel. Turns out one of the venturi hoses inside was routed up against that valve, not letting it open. My tj doesnt have one, but never had reason to drop the wj tank

Just read that you have NGK plugs in there... they are not platinum are they?
I suggest you replace with all champion copper.

Whats the reason behind going with all Champion copper? Jeep runs great with the NGK.

Yeah i was just making sure they weren't platinum. I think ngk and champion are the only two recommended for the base v8, i know definitely not platinum though.

I fixed it! Fuel filter. After I changed it, I could refuel, it starts easy and now all I have to do is track fuel mileage. I looked around on the site about the plugs and the consensus is that the Bosch do not have as good a reputation in this application. The NGK is performing well and most say they have no issues. Most of the posts seem to rag on the Bosch product. Has anyone had an issue with NGK?

Problem is back. Fuel mileage was doing ok until a few days ago. I am at 130 km and that cost 1/2 tank of gas. Also it cranks like mad before catching and just now when I went to lunch after it cranked for a while to start the check engine light is on. I will have to pull the codes to see what the problem is. Has anyone else had this issue? Should I change the O2 sensors next? Or should I replace the fuel pump and get the new O rings? I wonder if the last owner just did not take care of this thing or if I got a lemon.

I wonder if it might be a tiny vacuum leak. Possible? I cant hear it though.

I've heard of the AutoZone filters failing but not the WIX filters, that's why I asked.
