  2. JK Wrangler Technical Forum
    Ok, I've been searching and searching for help with this (google was not my friend yesterday or today!) and I just can't find this info. I am going to replace the crank pulley on my 2012 Jeep JK 3.6l hopefully tonight. Does anyone know what torque spec to use? Typically I purchase the shop...

    I was leaving down town when my jeep died after leaving work. Sputtered, then would not start. There was a few seconds where it sounded like it was going to try to fire, or back fire...then nothing. Towed it home. $120 Thought it was fuel pump. Changed it. $120. Still no spark. (needed to change...

    Hello all, This is my first time posting to this forum, but this site has been so helpful when diagnosing/fixing issues even without posting. I have my '96 XJ 4x4, 274,000ish miles. I don't know what was done to it before I bought it 20-30,000 miles ago and I'm trying to fix it up and keep it...

    I live in Texas and my son goes to Georgia College in Milledgeville GA and drives a 1994 4.0 YJ with a manual transmission. He ran the Jeep without oil resulting in the rear main seal not holding oil. He took it to Pittman’s and they replaced the rear main seal for $500. It still will not...

    Thanks in advance to anyone who can lend some assistance! I'm scratching my head on this one... and it really shouldn't be complicated at all. I'm rebuilding a TJ and here are my donor parts: 5spd NV3550 trans from a 2000 TJ and a 4.0L motor from a 2004 TJ. The motor was originally mated to a...
  7. XJ Cherokee Technical Forum
    I drive a 93 cherokee country, 4.0 I6, AT, ~130k. This is a daily driver. Starts great, performs well for about the first 20 minutes of any drive. Then the engine will either bump, momentarily, stall then recover, or stall completely without any electronic loss or reset. The bumps and momentary...

    Hey ladies and gents. Here's the jist. I have a 72 AMC 304 that I just had honed, had the crank turned to .020 and installing new main and rod bearings. I got the .020 bearings and installed them with a ton of assembly lube. The problem is when I torque the 1,2,3,4 rod end caps and try to turn...

    Long story short... 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee Lareod 4.7L V8 I am doing a head job. I used a 3 arm puller to remove the damper but the rod that came with it was too short. I got the bright idea to just put a 5 inch long "3/8 drive socket extension into it to give me the extra length. I got the...

    I decided to rebuild my 4.0L engine on my 98 TJ after 90,000 miles when my #6 cylinder skirt broke off. PO never changed the oil and the rod bearings where also heavily worn. I decided to stroke the engine to 4.6L while I was in there to make my first build a little more enjoyable. Well fast...

    Here's the deal... engine stalled as I was driving and when I restarted the jeep had a loud clicking noise that sped up when I accelerated. Drove it and then parked it, drove it again and stalled a quarter mile later and couldn't restart it. Pulled the timing chain cover off and there was a...

    I removed my camshaft position sensor (CPS) to check it for the wear that many 05-06 models are experiencing. I marked the gear position and took a photo of the position of the housing. When I put it back together it started immediately and has not turned on the check engine light or thrown a...

    **EDIT** This thread started as just an engine build thread, on page 26, I decided to go ahead and make it a build thread on the whole jeep. Let me start by saying that I have never rebuilt a motor before and only know what I have read so any and all comments/advice are welcome. This build...
