Hi guys. I know a lot of you do all your own work and all but recently i stopped doing anything on my cars etc due to health and stuff. Used to do all work on smaller cars i had years ago but tbh never fiddled with my Jeeps.
Oh its 1999 WJ 4.0ltr Limited UK(Euro) so i drive on right side :P
Had nightmare time recently with stuck/rounded/chewed lugs and just about got that sorted lol.
I have to get certain work done on my WJ to get it road legal (M.O.T. here in UK) and i had look see some of the prices that the garage wanted to charge me and did quick search on net. Before its been a bit hard for me in UK to get parts here for Jeeps but seems to be getting better thankfully.
Please dont laugh at the stuff im doing or askin cause i REALLY want to get back into it and need good advice (and simple at that lol).
in No Order;
- Wheel lugs rounded - 90% done
- Sort MIL error - check
- "stuttering on gas down" - think done.Cleaned chamber and injectors etc but cant run on road till legal :/
- Driver seat small metal breakge between runner and seat (weld) - to do
- Rear Anti-roll(sway) bar rubber mounting worn replace - to do
- Rear shock absorber leak, replace both - to do
Ok so question. Is it hard/how hard/easy is it to replace sway/roll bar bushes/rubbers? This is on read bar. Do i need anything weird or funny tool wise, what best way to do this?
2ndly Rear shockers. Done before on small car but not this size ( make a difference?) but again do i need anything out of the ordinary tool wise?
My stuttering under gas when it wanted to go like 2nd gear. I cleaned with carb spray and a bit of throttle etc following instructions from this forum. I hope thats what the problem is but the Jeep has sat for a long time ( 6 months unmoved then 6 months being started and moved slightly
) Probably going to get told to replace fuel filter (hard? how?) and something else i cant find here in UK lol.
Sorry for wall of noob text but hope you guys can help. Oh and im moving home in 4 weeks so need to get this done, its one of those jobs guys you know the "yeah its ok darlin' i'll do it at weekend " shots
(im also selling my 03 WJ cause its got..issues lets say ..previous owner had it dumped in river and its still not right i think plus i find rust now and blend doors are sticking sometimes (eek) where as my '99 is spotless albiet illegal to drive lol. Hmm wonder if i should swap seats over etc and cannabilize before selling ha)
