I used to take my XJ to complete auto near Insbrook. They've always been pretty straightforward with me and I've taken stuff in knowing what was wrong with it, but unable to fix it and had them look at it as a kind of test and its always been spot on.

sounds like i have some grinding on front wheels so thinking it might be wheel bearings or u joints. and now the oil pressure is dropping at stops after its been warm. i already replaced the oil pressure sensor next going to flush out engine and use mopar oil filter to see how that goes.

I had an old J10 that did the same thing. Needed bearings On top of that, the oxygenated fuel seemed to make it worse. Gas bought in town causes the pressure to drop at idle. Gas bought put of town didn't.

Oil pressure comes off one of the main bearings and with the wear the oil would actually blow by the opening at idle. A bit unnerving.

I work there. Not trying to sound biased or cocky, but I used to work at Firestone and Complete puts them to shame both work wise, and honesty wise. Come by and see me. Ask to see Tim and tell him Mike C told you to come in. We'll get you all fixed up.

I've seen you driving around. I always wave to you when I see you. Send me a PM and we can get together sometime after my wife and I have our baby this month.
