Jeep buddies around San Jose
 
Hi everyone, I've been working on my Jeeps fixing them up by myself and I can tell you it gets tiring quick when you always work alone... so I'm here looking for someone that might like to get together and work on their Jeep's since I work at a large shop where I hang out often wrenching, maybe go off roading? I have 5 Jeeps now so I know a thing or two about them but like anyone else I still need help figuring things out time and again. Right now I'm having issues with my 88' XJ, it passed smog runs good and strong off road but once you get over 55 mph there is no power accelerating, anyone local can help out? Did I mention I have a full shop with tools to work on Jeeps? :D

Hey how's it going. I'm from San Jose as well. I'm going up to the cow mountain run on may 4th if you want to go as well. Check out the thread I believe there are almost 30 jeepers going

Maybe, its a bit further then I was hoping but looks like fun I'll see.

I'm down in san jose, I've got a pair of ZJ's that always seem to have something broken. Are you going with the group up to cow mountain on the 4th?

If I can get my power issue fixed I'm down to go and if you guys need a garage to wrench I can help with that to.

Frank Raines isn't too far to go visit for the day. There are some nice little trails to go play on out there. Definitely can't see it all in a day.

Check out the catalytic converter. Best to remove exhaust from vehicle and shake the Cat. If it rattles you may find that its clogged. I just replaced mine for a similar issue.

VictimX 04-22-2013 11:16 AM

I did a service and tune up (rotor, cap, transmission service, oil service, spark plugs and wires) put new injectors along with new muffler and new cat as well. I think I'll replace the fuel pump just because but the guy I bought the jeep from replaced it about 8 months ago and gave me receipts showing the work done.

Check fuel pressure first. Is it injected or carb? What gears are you running? Maybe helpful if you fill out your profile.

VictimX 04-22-2013 02:37 PM

I haven't filled it out really since you can only do one jeep and I have 5... so which one to fill out? Any way you can make more then one profile? Its stock over all with fuel injection, I'll check the fuel pressure but I did do a head test, compression test showing good.
