    2.5 engine problems

    I agree that it sounds fuel pump related as it doesnt start on the first try. Sounds like you have fuel pressure issues. I would do a good visual check of all your wiring. loose connections, chaft/bare wires, broken grounds loose grounds, melted wires.

    Hose Barb Fitting Help

    I bought a B&M super cooler kit and it came with a couple different sizes of hose barb fittings. Only one fits my aluminum radiator but I need two. The fitting that fits is not a NPT. It is a 20 thread pitch 3/8 barb and I am assuming a 1/4 inch fitting. I cannot find anything with a thread...

    Jeep died while driving

    I had two different ones act weird. I would be driving and then it would just quit but it would fire right up again. Then sometimes I would have to turn the ignition key several times on and off and then it would just start. I am glad you found it

    How to Route Spark Plug Wires

    you can use one zip tie and old vacuum line/hose between each wire as separators also. Place the hose/line between each wire and then route the zip tie around the wire but through the hose/line. This lets you separate the wires farther apart than the width of a zip tie if that is needed

    Jeep died while driving

    I would lean to the crankshaft position sensor, don't buy a cheap one as they fail quickly if not immediately. You might check your ignition switch in your steering column. They break internally and cause starting issues. You can do a search on either of these topics and come up with some...

    Scrat 2.5 to Scrat Limited 5.9

    The 242 is new to me as I bought a beat up Cherokee limited just to do this swap. it was working fine to my knowledge when I removed it. I like the AWD as most of my driving is on the street. The other benefit is that I do not (as of yet) need to change the 231 input shaft as it is different...

    Scrat 2.5 to Scrat Limited 5.9

    I got the transmission valve body all back together. Then I worked on getting all the Jeep grand Cherokee levers swapped over, Brake peddle, E Brake lever, T Case lever and the Auto trans Lever. They are leather wrapped so it will be a bit different. I am going to make my own center console FWD...
