Yea, today I should have never left the house in my Jeep to go to the shop. Jeep drove normal all the way to shop. Went inside for a sec then realized I wanted to run to Terribles to get some drinks and snacks.....start my Jeep and it's obvious some heat soak is setting in. I think oh well and drive on. Sitting at the 1st stoplight and I hear a loud hiss, crap flies out from under my driver fender and I smell something burnt. I pull over to find my AC compressor has blown something out the back and I'm pretty sure the clutch burned up. Green die all over my driver side motor mount ect....this stupid heat all by itself makes me want to move........my parents are in CO and it's 50deg at the Cabin, makes me sick!!!!

Do you have that white furry cardboardish wrap that jeep sells specifically to wrap around the injector? It's like $7? I actually doubled up on it with mine.

I'm driving the yota to work tomorrow. Windows will be down for sure! Gotta hit the junkyard for a quick expo fix.

No, I just have the heat shield that goes between the intake manifold and the injectors. Didn't know there was a wrap for the injectors.

Mopar 56028371AA I'm ordering enough to do all 6 injectors. I will be grabbing some extra too if you want some. Otherwise I think you can get heat shield tape stuff from any autoparts store and it should work.

Thanks but I am not real concerned about it. The Jeep is in the garage until November when it will go up for sale again.

If that's the same thing I used which was like a white furry corregated tube with a cut down the length of it to slide over the injectors... Mine was long enough that I cut it in half and was able to double wrap them. On mine, it helped but didn't fix it. Days like this weekend, even with the hood vent my jeep would've been having issues for sure.

On the other hand, it was 110 when I was running around tapped out in 3rd gear pushing 4K on my yota and it never skipped a beat and hung at 200 degrees all morning. Then again, it's a toyota, would you expect anything less?

The cut in half, double wrap was what the actual TSB instruction was to do lol. It states it is not a fix, just to help it. As far as I know there is no fix. I'm about to do some custom louvers on my hood which should help a ton with trapped heat. I don't really care about the injector thing so much, it's the longevity of everything else under the hood.

On the way to McFadden Dale anyone need anything lol

I cared about the injector thing cause it was so bad that my jeep wouldn't even run so it was a bit of an issue. LOL Funny, I never actually read the TSB, I just got the part and was like, damn, this thing is way too long so I cut it in half and then figured, heck, a bit extra can't hurt. Like I said it improved it but didn't fix it. Made it so the jeep would run above 100 degree temp days though. But hit about 105 and up and it was iffy on if it would run. I added the hyline vent and that got me good from about 105-113ish but a weekend like this past one, even with the vent, it likely still would've had issues. The jeep's home though now is like 3 blocks from the water in huntington beach so I think it's doing just fine.

My expo had a either a heat related issue this weekend or just bad timing... I'm driving the yota today. "Hoping" I can get the expo back on the road tonight so I can have my A/C again tomorrow. LOL

Reading the TSB seems like our biggest problem might be fuel. The high ethanol blend seems to make the 4.0 more succeptible to the problem. It the damn tree huggers fault.

Hey Marn, you're in da hood and one of the few that hasn't gotten a ride in my hooptie... Not this week but one afternoon next week possibly would you be interested in suffering in the heat a little bit? I want to head back out to where that jump I posted the picture was from and get a couple more camera shots of it before the truck sells. (not that I have a buyer lined up but still...) It's about 10-15 minutes from our houses and I can meet you over there and you can jump in with me. Interested? Probably would only run around out there for 15 minutes or so. Super quick run just to get a couple photos/video and I'll take you for a quick run thru the jumps and stuff if you want?

Funny part is the TSB is like, may cause rough running for 20-30 seconds... Or something like that. Mine... HAHAHAHAH, wouldn't run at all!!!! Very first time it happened to me I was up in Alamo and ended up getting it towed home cause I didn't know what it was. It started and ran fine once home and I drove it right off the truck... Mine most of the time was when I would get it up to temp and then park and run into a store. The heat soak would kill it. I'd have to come out and pop the hood and leave it open for 10-15 minutes to get it to fire and run right. Once it was up and running I was fine though. I remember I used to wheel with a guy here when I first got it that would pop his hood and put a block of wood between the hood and core support every time he parked to help vent the heat.

That is the most common that I have heard. Mine ran just fine after about 30 seconds. Codes show a mis-fire on 1&3. It was also running a bit warmer than usual. It usually sits rock solid at 210. It was sitting a couple needle widths higher than that in the heat of the day.

Yeah that 20-30 seconds is a joke, mine wouldn't run at all for a few minutes, but if I babied it I could coax it into running long enough to pressurize the system enough to overcome the vapor lock.
