    Diesel engines: Free-wheel downhill or leave in high gear?

    Calling all the diesel-fundi's........... Does a diesel engine still use fuel when you on a long downhill in 5th gear? or should I just free-wheel in neutral? bin told that the engine in neutral will use more fuel than running against compression in high gear.......... Huh? true, or false?

    Thank you for the info. I was however told that the fuel filter must also be replaced. Is this item related to the boost pressure solenoid filter?

    Buying a used KJ....Would you buy an 02, 03 or 04 and why?

    One very important plus factor with '03 onwards models is the fact of disc brakes all round

    The real deal and the wannabee

    They once did an experiment to determine how air tight an LR seals with relation to a Pajero and Jeep, so they locked a cat in each over a weekend. End of the weekend when they opened the doors of the vehicles the cat in the Jeep was dead - suffocated, the one in the Pajero was dizzy but...

    HOW TO: Build Sturdy Roof Rails For Under $40

    I did a similar fitment. Only instead of using 4x2 wood beams, I used discarded aluminium 'u' shaped strips that were used for vertical blinds.

    Benefits of Low Sulphur Diesel

    Here is the view from a local science magazine: Sulphur in diesel contributes towards the formation of the acid rain causing and lung-damaging pollutant, sulphur dioxide. It is also directly related to the amount of soot formation in a diesel engine and hence also the amount of particulates...

    Jeep liberty 2001 2.5 CRD

    My left door mirror did give some problems by not wanting to fold outwards, but I sorted it out with Q20 spray (water displacer). Was most likely some electrical thing. No more hassles since.

    Question about brakes/ABS

    ABS brakes carry out cadence braking at a much faster and more effective rate than any human can - dozens of times per second. They also enjoy the benefit of working only on the wheel that is losing traction, while driver-induced cadence braking affects even the wheels that are still turning...

    Jeep engineer + diesel engine = *****

    The CRD engine used in the KJ is supplied to DC by VM Motori, an Italian company dating back to 1947. In 1995 it was acquired by Detriot Diesel and some of its production was shifted to the USA. In 2000 VM Motori, together with Detroit Diesel Corporation, became part of the DaimlerChrysler...

    Considering KJ purchase, seeking feedback on certain things

    Pity about not being able to obtain a manual CRD. I own a manual CRD with the 5-speed box though and will never go to auto (in my experience off-road driving is best undertaken where you have control over the rev's, gear to be in, etc.).
