Don't get scared by all of these comments. I have a 2006 with 111k miles and haven't had many of the problems / maintenance concerns listed here. Yours has low mileage and I assume your mom won't be...

It's may be the harness that the resistor plugs into. If you look at the contacts I'd bet they're burnt although I think that may only affect the lower speeds. I had a similar problem and I found an...

Definitely keep it. It's a great vehicle for your kids to drive and it sounds like it's in mint condition now. They don't want a Camry or did someone really say a Crown Vic? Please nobody should...

That's weird. I'd say either a weak tensioner or something is binding up bad, like the water pump or Ac compressor

Glad you got that resolved. I had the same problem 50k miles ago. Drivetrain has been flawless since

This was a good idea 25 years ago. Now most cars will not run without the battery connected as the computer components need a steady voltage. You risk damaging the alternator or other components...

I just did my water pump a few weeks ago. I bought a new Carquest water pump at AdvanceAuto for around $40. It seemed well made and was assembled in the US.

You may notice when you remove the...

I agree. If this transmission is even half a quart low it will slip when engaging into drive. When I first bought my WK with 50k miles it would slip sometimes. Added half a qt of fluid and it never...

The 3.7 and the associated transmission is reliable. If maintained, the differentials and transfer cases last just fine as well. You should find it to be as reliable and with a few similar quirks...

Over 8 inches of fresh snow here. I have three 4/all wheel vehicles in my household but the Jeep is always my go-to vehicle in the snow. I find myself searching for the least plowed route!

I just had mine done a few weeks ago. It's fine. A little stiff but you get used to it right away. Others have said it loosens up over time and I think mine has a little already. My daughter uses...

Are you sure you didn't have the P41 recall for a stiffer "push to turn" ignition lock? That recall doesn't replace the keys.

I have the original 2 key fobs for my 2006 WK and wanted to have a...

I drained and filled my rear and front differentials with Valvoline Syn power 75w140 about a year ago. The drivetrain felt smoother after the gear oil change.

If the old ones were NGK it's possible they were original, although the plugs do wear pretty substantially in these engines even at 30k miles. Each time I've changed my plugs I've been surprised at...

Alternator life expectancy

My 2006 Wk (3.7) has 103k miles and the original alternator. It works fine but how long has yours lasted? Am I on borrowed time now or should I expect plenty more life out of my alternator? I've...
