No. Common wisdom is to change the belt, idlers, tensioner, and water pump if their age/miles are unknown. 70,000 miles or 6 years installed on the belt. Water pumps don't last 2 belts.

Many additional modifications are recommended to keep the engine intact. LOSTJeeps has the most info, and sad stories, relating to the CRD.

Do you like to wrench? A lot?

Not a big fan of wrenching but I do it
Iím going to make an offer on this CRD but I will most surely do timing belt pump and thermostat. Just to make sure. It kinda scares me not knowing

But wait! There's more...

Consider:

ARP head studs
In tank lift pump
Mr Bauer's incredible thermostat housing
Weeks kits to eliminate unmentionables
Provent air/oil seperator
GDE tune
Torque converter upgrade

I must be forgetting something...

The torque is nice.

I forgot...

metal glow plugs
silicon turbo hoses
new air intake hose

Folks seem happy with the 3.7 gas engine as long as it doesn't overheat.
