came back from the Caribbean and the CEL came on yesterday. It's a P0138 code. I'm thinking maybe bad fuel from sitting for a week and a half maybe, could that cause that bad 02 sensor/leak code? I'm gonna wait to tear stuff apart until i can refuel and run some fresh gas through it and see if it helps...

Would a different brand/type cold air intake be better?

A true CAI would be something like a snorkle that draws air from outside the engine bay. There are guys who have adapted air boxes off of other cars and made them to work. This I think is the best way as you are drawing in outside air then filtering it thru a paper filter.

I did as you advised and started reading up on the subject and wow was I misinformed! Thank you so much for enlightening me. I think I will fabricate my own snorkel at some point, but for now that CAI is going back to the store. Thank you again!

Emailed a guy about a set of 33x10.5's... The wife's TJ may be rolling on pizza cutters by the end of the week.

Plugged a hole in my tire, began searching for another set of shoes for my own...

I would just get it cleared as it is probably from a loose gas cap or a loose hose on your Eval stuff for the tank. It happens to mine every so often. Was the gas cap at first but think my evap lines may be loose now.

Lots of deer and elk to avoid not to mention there are rarely guard rails and there are trees right next to the road...
I'm in no means a lighting expert so google for yourself after this and before you buy. I think they are awesome. There is a distinct horizontal cutoff for the low beams where stock is..splattered and all over. Only drove once at night with them for a short amount of time but the right side of the beams angle upwards slightly and really lit up that side of the road. There's just plenty of light and I don't think you would be disappointed going to them.

A bit ago I ran across the below on another forum by accident. It was on the JK side. Don't really know that it does anything, seemed to(probably in my head since I wanted it to), but kind of immeasurable. Supposed to adjust throttle response. After I done the below, my CEL flashed a few times then stopped so I think it may do something anyway.


Below from other site--
Adjusting Throttle response:

1. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position (Do not start the engine).
2. Wait for all of the dash lights that normally come on at start up to go out.
3. Depress the gas pedal to the floor and back one time***
4. Turn the ignition switch to the OFF/LOCK position.

***the throttle response is adjusted based on how quickly or slowly you send the gas pedal to the floor and back... the quicker you floor it and let go, the faster the throttle response will be.

Also note that this is NOT a permanent adjustment, the ECM will continue to learn and adjust to your driving habit's. If you drive it like you stole it, it will last a while, if you hit 30 mins of traffic it will probably be back to normal in a day or two.

they are ecodes, so they have a wider spread but a sharper cut off and need to be aimed properly, and the beam is angled up on the passenger side for additional light off the road on that side....seeing road signs at longer distances without glaring other drivers and the like.

Isn't this backward? Is finally nice outside, top should be coming off and doors going half or off.

Replaced a dead Optima red top that was 12 years old with an O'reillys Super Start AGM battery. I'll give it a try for $145, the red tops are $215 here and imported. I have heard on this forum plenty of times that the Optimas aren't what they used to be. Too bad, I would have bought another one.

Finished up putting everything back together from doing the shift shaft seal. Also found a few loose bolts, and a somewhat loose dripping cooler line. Also degreased and wiped down the trans, tcase, and skid. So far no more leaks so that's good(the first non leaking jeep I've ever seen). Ditched the t-case skid. Still getting vibes after doing the ujoints and trans mount. Brown Santa is scheduled to bring my mml tomorrow, so I started spraying pb blaster in prep for that.
