Some might consider it overkill, but to avoid damaging the hose (because they never seem to want to pull off the end of the valve without a lot of force) I use my Dremel to cut the old valve, then...

DRB3 or a higher-end third-party scanner - you'd have to do the product research to find one that'll do it if you don't have a DRB3.

I don't imagine any sub-$100 consumer-level scanners will do...

Thanks all. My leak is worst on the UK passenger side (so US driver side), although it doesn't really drip noticeably on the ground unless you've got either the back end or front end up on jackstands...

The thing I like about spring clamps is that they're set-and-forget. They always work first time. Whereas I've had numerous situations where I thought I'd tightened a screw clamp enough, but it was...

Any tips for replacing the V8 PS pressure hose (pump to hydro fan)?

The big PS pressure hose on my V8 HO, the one that comes off the top of the pump and connects to the bottom of the hydro fan, is starting to seep at the crimp. Replacement seems like it should be...

A proper ABS brake bleed on my the OBD1 ZJ broke the 60 seconds up into three 20-second phases, with different input and output valves being cycled in each, reported on the DRB screen.

I'm...

How long does a full ABS brake bleed take?

On my old ZJ, a full ABS brake bleed with the DRB2 took 60 seconds, with the ABS pump motor running throughout. Is it essentially the same for the WJ?

I was recently able to borrow an Autel scan...

Mine came out without needing to touch the O2 sensor, but the plastic electrical connector for the starter solenoid just disintegrated. That was fun to repair, given how little slack that wire has...

Did I see a V8 valve cover removal writeup on here?

My 4.7L valve cover oil leak has reached the stage where I can't really ignore it any more. I have a feeling I saw a full writeup on here a while back, but I've been searching and can't find it. Can...

It does seem that many OE parts have leapt in price over the last few years. Maybe it's due to the WJ design being 21 years old now, so stocks of OE parts are being run down and their price has been...

Interesting - I thought Crown were meant to be very hit-or-miss quality these days? I've read lots of opinions from people who think they're flat-out crap.

Can you check if the rear UCA bushings are bad without pulling the arm?

I've checked the ball joint on my rear UCA by using a pry bar to lever between the top of the diff and the tip of the arm - there's no play there. Is there any way to check the condition of the two...

That set is good value - $199 for all the hard lines front and rear. If you look up Mopar prices, just the longer rear axle line alone is well over $100 these days, and I think the front-to-rear line...

It's not so unbelievable sadly. HVAC parts can become scarce or unobtanium much faster than many others.

When I had a ZJ with auto climate I did a full HVAC refurb - all the plastic parts still...

Just read a "warning" about oil spec for the 4.7L HO - this has to be BS?

I'm on a WJ group on Facebook where somebody is insisting that the 4.7L HO *must* use Mopar-branded 10w30 oil or it will cause severe engine damage. They also insist that there is a specific warning...

Yes, sorted it a couple of days ago. I invested in a pressure bleeder, and it just worked - no more air bubbles within a few seconds of opening the bleed screw.

Yes, because I was an idiot and ran it dry when I was pumping the brake to pop the rear pistons out for the caliper rebuild.

Never-ending brake job took another turn... endless air in front calipers

So I finally got my rear calipers sealed and bled, and because I'd had the MC off I then went to bleed the front calipers... and I'm getting endless air. Mostly small bubbles, but every so often...
