The jeep drove awesome all day today. Then it sputtered and stalled out in my driveway just now.

I guess I need to cough up the dinero and replace the crankshaft position sensor. Ugh.

I fixed two of the obvious problems: negative battery terminal has been broken for awhile and the spark plugs were way overdue.

All of these electrical gremlins started since I hydrolocked the motor during a water crossing last weekend.
my dad had that on his cheroke he had to change a crank sensor

Haha. True. I still need to replace it and see if that clears up the issue.

Did you use an autozone sensor or a MOPAR sensor?

I would go MOPAR. It was on my old 98 that I replaced it and I had to do it twice from O'Rilleys

Removed one lca at a time and checked the cartridge joints to make sure they were tight. Did some maintenance on them the other day, and they were barely tighter then "hand tight". According to RE, they need to be checked and torqued, as they will loosen as things wear. Mine were also really dry, with traces of water/moisture. I also noticed score marks on the ball/races from being dry. Ever since then, I was advised to try to tighten them more every few hundred miles, especially since I went almost a year without maintaining them. I was happy to find they were still as tight as they were when I reassembled them a few days ago. So no more abnormal wear. I didn't take any pics today, but I never posted any when I took them apart, so ill post those. My RE arms have been trouble free, and I'd like to keep them that way.




The little grease they did have, wasn't very "grease like"

Pretend this was taken today during my inspection


Btw its damn near impossible to take these apart and put them back together using a punch, and not smack your hand at least 10 times. And yes, my front lowers are adjustable, and rear lowers are fixed(got the fixed ones for $150 from work. Was a non stock order, customer never came back to buy them, and they couldn't be returned to our supplier. So I bought them).

Also tonight, I'll be under the jeep with simple green and a rag, cleaning nasty oil/grime spots from the trans/case/axles. Im hoping to be able to throw a little paint on the frame and axles this weekend. I figured I might as well clean up all the crap from when my trans was leaking. Not looking forward to it...

After trying to diagnose the banging noise my tcase was making in 4wd, I filled it back up with new fluid, put new ujoints in the front driveshaft and buttoned it all up. Took it for a test in 4 low and no more noise!

Well autozone had them in stock so I cheaped out and bought theirs.

Just installed the new crank position sensor. That was a complete pain in the ***. Holy smokes. I hope to only have to do that once. Just test drove it and so far so good. (Knock on wood) :-)

I almost never get into 5th gear... but I did notice that when I drive to the beach and the land starts to flatten out, it's not nearly as bad driving at highway speeds and I can sometimes get into 5th gear.
My YJ has 31s and 3.07 gears. I burned out 3rd gear since I never used 5th.
My TJ sport is stock but when I update tires, I'm regearing to 3.73s and 31s maybe 32s
