    Pretty sure it is just the switch that have gone bad but just wanted to hear what y'all think! Summary of the problem: The light only only comes on after the engine is warmed up and when the car is at low speed. As soon as I step on the gas it goes away. This first happened ~2k miles after the...

  7. WK Grand Cherokee & XK Commander Forum
    Was given a Topsider Oil Extractor for Christmas. Very civilized way to change oil. No raising the Jeep, no sliding under vehicle, no spilling and much faster and neater. That's the good news. Works perfectly with my 2002 Grand Cherokee, but last weekend I attempted to change the oil in our...

    Hi all. New here and not super experienced. Bought a '92 XJ 4.0 as a project that (supposedly) only needed a fuel pump replaced.

    I have bought two new oil cooler lines for my 89 4.0 XJ, the new ones have four metal tabs for the quick connect fitting. Do I discard the old squeeze type quick disconnect clip which stays on the metal pipe as they do not go all the way in.

    Hello, I have a 95 Cherokee Laredo 4.0. After she warms up the oil pressure will drop, then on take off (mostly out of 1st and 2nd) you can hear the lifters tapping or what I think are the lifters that is. After coming out of 2nd going into 3rd (and the oil pressure is back up) there is no...

    In advance: I have no affiliation to CerTech Gels, I'm just doing this for myself and for any others who are interested. So basically, you can make your own judgment on if it would benefit your engine or not. I'm not sure how I came across finding this company; maybe I noticed it when I was...

    First post on the forums. Hello, I'm 16 years old and saved up my money to buy a 2000 Wrangler Sport after a lot of research. After having the oil changed at the dealership, it has had a leak near the oil pan and if it sits for a day, the oil level is overfilled. But, if you run it, and then...
