"Redneck fix" When my daughter bought this '00 XJ the cable was broke. The hood had never been opened for years. So no oil changes, nothing. I did just like you to get it open. The dealer/seller was...

Boogieman's picture is exactly where my two cables broke too. I wonder why? It is a pretty straight shot from the firewall to the kick panel where it is mounted. No stress. Maybe a design flaw?

I replaced mine twice before I gave up. The last time I ran what was left of the cable down beside the air cleaner box. The plastic part that breaks I drilled a hole and screwed that to the fender....

On mine it was the oil filter. I tightened it with a strap type wrench and it still leaked. Then I figured out that you have to use the cup type filter wrench to get it tight enough. Finding the...

Fixed it for ya. Ha Ha. No, we have no salt water license, just a yearly registration. In all the years that has been in affect I have not been asked to produce it even once. Right now I don't know...

I own several Jeeps so keeping myself busy is not a problem. I am never bored. And since no one in their right mind will help me I have the social distancing thing down pat. Pretty soon fishing...

Another thing I did was to over-protect the cable this time. Investigation showed that the outer cable housing was cut through by something. The inner cable was intact. I don't think it was the...

Since the '00 and '01 0331 heads are susceptible to cracking due to a casting defect I would avoid them. Even though many don't like my 177k '00, why chance it? The TUPY is better and available....

You power up hills and coast down. That puts both positive and negative pressure on the combustion chamber. The rings are forced to respond by wearing in nicely. What you don't want to do is hop on...

Ralph I read about that adapter thing while researching the 0331 head. It is for using an older head with your newer manifolds. That is good as both my '00 and '01 have the two cats up under the...

Thanks for chiming in Tim. So the XJ ended in '01 and both the '00 and '01 used the problematic 0331 head. That leaves the ZJ engines up to, what, '06 ?, as the only bolt-in replacement. If he still...

Update: The engine is approaching 500 miles and the original oil is still clear. I like that, and is why I did the re-build. I have control over the break-in process. No highway driving and lots of...

MB don't assume anything. The head is the usual culprit. I removed the valve cover and ran the engine. I could see coolant seeping from the crack right between the #3 and #4 exhaust valves. I...

I don't know where you are but here in NYC Jeep motors are very scarce. I had the infamous 0331 cracked head and I thought a used motor was an easy deal. The few I found were much older than what I...

That did the trick. It was the injector just as it was on all my other Jeeps. That makes 7 times on 3 Jeeps the injectors went bad. I have never replaced an injector on any other vehicle, ever. What...

Well the coil came in but so far the code is not coming back. So I think the injector was the culprit. That makes 7 times on 3 different Jeeps that the misfire was solved by injector replacement. I...
