Ok so now I'm confused

Garage said they replaced my clutch with the stock one

They removed the one I had on there that was an after market high performance one

This coulda been the issue they said

Am I boned that I just downgraded?

What the hell is a high performance clutch ??

A high performance clutch tends to grab WAY harder than a stock one. My dad installed a performance clutch in the bronco and I had to be very very careful on releasing the clutch. It was really hard at first to get use to. The new clutch will probably feel spongy to you now.

Also, performance clutches will provide a little more torque feeling.

I miss driving a manual suv. My car is manual but that doesn't count lol.

A throttle body shouldn't be that much to replace and should be a fairly easy fix if you have some mechanics experience. Guys on my dodge ram forum use to always talk about removing TB and cleaning it. Replacing it should be just as easy.

Good luck and keep us posted.

Ok
So they replaced the Throttle Body
It's much better
No squealing as I accelerate

Well kinda
If I push it I can still make it squeak
Just not as loud or constant

Not sure if that's cuz it's new parts or???

I mean clearly they fixed what the issue was to a certain degree because it is much much better....

The paperwork says it may squeak due to my K&N air filter......


This true ??

Advice?

I mean it is a used jeep
65K miles
I should expect a lil noise regardless lol

Or am I wrong ?

Your K&N will allow you to hear the air going thru the throttle a bit louder than the stock air box. A little noise doesn't hurt...
