What did I do to my jeep? Well I put the K and N FIPK back on and had my check engine light go off. I didnt put it on to fix the light, rather to test the setups again. Heres why Im surprised:

-CEL pops with p0158 and p0161, clear codes and the light pops right back on within an hour of driving.
-Clear codes again and within an hour of driving the light pops back on with the same codes.
-Clear codes AGAIN and within an hour of driving the light pops back on with the same codes.
-Swap in K and N fipk and within an hour the light goes off and its been days since I swapped the intakes and still no light.

For my first time doing this it really wasn't that bad.
I googled and followed post # 15 here:
http://jeepsunlimited.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=526885

post 20 has the pics.

The only thing i did to help me was to drop the driver side trans cross member.
Just loosened the 4 bolts enough to let it drop down a bit, then was able to put bolt and heat shield back on sensor by hand from the top of motor.then went through trans shifter cable hole as stated in post and tightened it back up.

Drove 778 miles to go visit the parents in Baltimore. Used... wait for it... 38.1 gallons of fuel for a true 20.42 MPG. EVIC said 23.1, but whatever. Also put a can of R134 in it because the air wasn't blowing as cold as it used to. All better now.

New Heater core, nice not to have the coolant smell anymore. New WIX fuel filter, hoping to see a mpg increase but not holding my breath.

Replaced the oil sending unit. It was reading 0 oil pressure and a little bit of oil was leaking out around the unit. Checked the pressure with a manual gauge and it read just fine. Not too bad.

How many miles on your tranny since the last change? I'd really like to change mine at 91k but I've heard it's bad for it if you go a long time without changing the fluid. My fluid looks nice and pink though.

Cut off a piece of the swaybar bracket on the axle side. Now my TRE doesn't contact the bracket at full lock.

Also, replaced a rear sway bar bushing and rotated my tires...

Slowly but surely getting rid of all the clunks....
