    PSA do NOT put petroleum based fluids in your master cylinder reservoir

    By the looks of the pictures I’d say you caught that fairly early. Sometimes when you take the cap off the master cylinder the rubber seal on the bottom of the cap will be 3 times it’s normal size. Power steering fluid does wonders

    Faded stock side steps

    I used Mother’s back to black and it took 3-4 applications before they looked good. It took a couple weeks before you could step on one without slipping

    Broken lug stud help

    I’m betting the wheel wasn’t sitting flush on the hub when he tightened the lug nuts. Once y’all put a few miles on it the wheel wobbled on the hub and the lugs nuts started to back off. When he got down to one nut holding the wheel that stud broke

    Running issues after reattaching vacuum line

    I’m guessing you have an 05 so tcm is part of the pcm and yes it should go back to shifting the same soon

    Running issues after reattaching vacuum line

    The pcm has what Chrysler calls adaptive memory. It had adjusted to having the vacuum leak probably by changing the iac position and going richer on the a/f . It would have adjusted itself back after you reattached the hose given enough drive time or pcm reset like you did. Find a way to secure...

    Unknown ground plug

    Also this forum has at least one thread about connections in back of the cluster being suspect. The connectors are clipped to the dash structure and the cluster slips into them and sometimes causing poor connections

    Unknown ground plug

    The 5v reference wire supplies voltage for the cam/crank, tps and map sensor so that must be working or it would not run. The cluster works off the bus system and the odometer would be reading “no bus” if it wasn’t working. I think your next checks need to be to verify cluster has power and ground

    Unknown ground plug

    Does the Jeep start and run? Runs but gauges don’t work? If the diagram I found online is accurate the wires you say you checked are the reference voltage to most sensors. Gauges work off the ccd + and ccd- wires in the grey connector

    Homelink transmitter installation

    No need to be skeptical, I bought one and put it in my Jeep and it works great. Kia has these listed as an accessory/ upgrade for some of their models that are 4-5 years old maybe they just want to move them

    Pics of purge valve: Is up supposed to be up?

    The pcm isn’t constantly checking it. You finally drove far enough for the pcm to see two failed trips

    Can I drive with a broken bank 1 sensor 1 O2?

    If it’s not already rounded off your best bet is a six point socket. Using vice grips or anything else just lessens your chances. If you can get on on it with a six point socket with the exhaust bolted up that gives you the advantage of the exhaust not moving while you’re trying to break it loose

    Can I drive with a broken bank 1 sensor 1 O2?

    when working at the dealership when an o2 sensor was stubborn I would cut the body of the sensor off with an air hammer/ chisel. Then use a 6 point socket and breaker bar. I think the hammer action helps sometimes. It should come out but sometimes galls the threads. I ended up getting a tap that...

    How do i remove this steering wheel??

    Loosen the bolt and while sitting in the seat pull on one side and push on the other. Then push at the top while pulling on the bottom. Keep alternating side to side & top and bottom and most of the time they will come loose. Just leave the bolt threaded in a little to keep the wheel from...

    Yet another misfire

    If you do the leak down test like the williambmac suggested and you have the valve cover off, look closely at the valve springs
