Seriously? At that speed your 4ltr ( like mine ) shouldnt be that low no way lol. Should be getting 20mpg EASILY especially with cruise on. Ive never gotten that low unless in town stop start driving.

Test drove it, and bought it.

Is there a noob thread around here somewhere ? ....or an introduction section of some sort.

I think General Discussion forum is as close as you can get to an introduction forum.

it could be the core, o-ring, nut, or the sensors. i had a leak at the steam and tried changing everything but still keep on leaking so had to pop on a new sensor and no more leak.

napa sells the senors with all the little parts and they work for our wj's but cost about the same as form jeep depending on were you live
or can get the sensors form the dealer Tire Pressure Monitor Sensor ('02-'04) but i believe it dose not come with the nut.

I'll combine a few days here. Saturday, changed xfer case fluid, front and rear axle gear oil and the trans input shaft sensor, also found the front axle vent pipe had somehow come out of the axle so fixed that. Today, new Hankook RF10 tires. Tomorrow, oil change, transmission filter and fluid change and alignment.
