    front axle pieces parts

    I replaced that stupid plastic bushing with an actual bearing and a new seal. the intermediate shaft now has just over .001" of up and down movement. compared to having so much play I could feel the clunking of the shat hitting the bushing. today I am going to install the cv axle onto the...

    front axle pieces parts

    well, I FINALLY HAD TO adress this situation. the vibratoin even at low speed have gotten bad enough to force me into action. I have the front end torn apart. and what I am seeing makes me really scratch my head wondering what the heck is going on. the intermediate shaft has something similar to...

    Fuel pressure regulator kj2006

    "doubtful. If you go to that much work to pull the pump, why not replace it? With something OEM. Don’t skimp here." +1 here, I can tell you from experience to do this repair the correct way! In my last vehicle I went the "cheap" route 4 times (I bought the first pump, it was replaced twice...

    Block Heater

    Yeah, I wasn't worried about it starting (and yes, I do use synthetic oil), I was hoping to be able to get a "head start" on getting heat inside the cabin. I'm getting old, and a little bit of electricity cost would be worth it to me if I got heat sooner. I put a new thermostat in it at the same...

    Block Heater

    My Liberty was built to go to Alaska (I looked it up), and it came factory equipped with a block heater. which of course, is not working. is there a fuse somewhere in the 110v line someplace, or is this a if it doesn't work, it's junk type of thing?

    vibration during accel and decel

    my jeep has developed vibrations that ALMOST mimics a bad front u joint (rear axle) vibration, meaning that I feel it thru the seat. I rebuilt the front driveshaft not very long ago, but just to be sure i tried to make it move also. which it is tight. it happens mostly during accelerating and...

    So I was doing some light wheeling last weekend, nothing crazy, mostly just loose sand and hills. so I clicked the t/c into 4 hi. upon returning to the road, I clicked the t/c back into 2wd, and noticed that the light on the dash now said PART TIME, which it should read when I was in 4 hi. I did...

    Drive shaft ?

    I am glad to see you have a mechanic lined up. but you (he) needs to figure out WHY this happened before you buy a bunch of parts. if something in the transfer case or transmission let loose, it may very well not be worth fixing.

    so I was given a set (4) 245/70r16 Goodyear snow tires. but after looking at them (they seem pretty "beefy"), they are not going to clear things in my stock semi sagged suspension KJ are they?

    front axle pieces parts

    so a little while ago, I determined that my front cv axle and intermediate shaft have worn far enough, that I am going to have to replace them. so I was looking at the parts diagram for my Lib, and noticed that there are either bearings and or bushings (the parts manual calls them both in a...

    water pump housing pipe tap threads?

    never mind. I am just blind. there IS a plug in there. its black, and installed from the back side. my 17 year old could see it, but until she showed me with a flashlight, I just could not see it.

    water pump housing pipe tap threads?

    so i was replacing the serpentine belt, and while i had it off, i decided to spin each component powered by it to make sure i didn't have a bearing going bad someplace. the water pump seemed a little stiff, so i popped it off to take a look. it turns smooth, but has a bit of resistance. which...

    Dreaded P0420 help.

    well, this is interesting. i had no idea about sensor spacers. where do you get them? is it a common part that most auto parts stores carry?

    Proper Pressure

    Certainly if your driving very aggressively you run that risk. I personally have never had an issue at 15 psi. One place you have to give tire pressure a lot of attention is in very rocky terrain. to much pressure can result in a bent (or broken if its aluminum) wheel, but to much, and you will...
