    I am trying to replace my oil pan since the other blew a hole in the pan where the drain plug is, do I have to undo the motor mounts and raise the engine to get it out? THanx Jimmy

    Just did mine and was able to loosen the 4 bolts holding the coil and just wiggle it loose and slide in enough out of the way to get to the plugs without having to disconnect and remove the coil. There was some creative socket wrenching involved, but definitely not rocket science.
  • My husband and I recently purchased a 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee (WJ) to be our new rock crawler. I was wondering if anyone on here has had any experience in lifting the wj, outside of just the spacers? We are planning on running 35's.

    I was out of town all winter last year and my battery was ruined. My boy friend tried to jump start it using a large battery charger/jump starter hooked on the the battery posts. This didn't work and I had to replace the battery. Now I get power to everything but the ignition switch. Nothing that works that is supposed to when the key is on.
    4 inline fuses from the battery seem to be OK, but still no ignition. Fuse panel has power. Anyone know where else to check.
  • If you can use a volt meter or know someone who can, there are some fuses on the passenger fender that you need to check.

    They are not your typical fuses, but if you lift the cover on the fender, you can traced the positive battery terminal wires to a silver box with seven wires coming out of it : )

    This is kind of like a nerve central relay, and if any of those wires are burnt, then you will need to replace the fuses there, which happens alot with battery jumps, other electrical spikes.

    Trust me, had it happen when our insurance carrier forced me to install a anti theft system.


    Keep the rubber side pointed down, or at least sideways : )
  • hey, i'm new to this site,and i need the size & gradeof bolt for track bar ,anyone know?
  • sorry that's for a '92 laredo 4x4
  • I just returned from the "hell" of replacing my lenses, also on a '97. I suggest letting the dealer do it, but if you insist; the lenses are help in place by 3 snap on fittings (hard to describe but you can see them with a good shoplight. Don't worry about breaking the old ones during removal. The hell is getting the new ones back in place. Hint: I used a rubber hammer to force the snaps/probes into the new lenses. P.S. I broke one turn signal lense during the installation, and now have one of those on order. They, thankfully, I hope, are easy to replace.
  • I have to replace the right front turn signal lens. It looks easy-remove 1 screw located between the upper and lower lens will remove the side lens. Then remove 1 or 2 screws (facing downward) to release the old lens (it swings on a hinge?). Am I correct on the procedure?

    check the autozone website for a online manual..i've used it several times,and found it was a reasonably competent manual !'s kinda handy to shop for your parts online,then find the info on how to put it on!..sign in/select your vehicle/select "service manuals",or something similar,...only found one car they didn't have so far,but worth a try!..also,try googling "auto service manuals" for online e-books,my nephew found one that way for his "vibe",and helped a lot when we pulled the dash's auto engineers are getting better and better about HIDING crutial bolts on stuff like that..,all part of their "get the customer out from under the hood,and into the service department" policy-but it's hard to discourage us "shade tree specialist's",with more time than money.. :shades:
  • thanks, i'll chech it out!
  • I assume the cracks developed because the systems pressure release is malfunctioning? is the hidden radiator cap the only pressure release point in the system? is the cap on the reservoir designed to release presure? Please help. about 1 year ago I replaced the thermostat and flushed/replaced coolent.

    Anyone know of an AC eliminator bracket for a (1998) Cherokee Sport? The engine is the 4.0 liter.

    Anyone know what the thread is on Chrysler part 83504653? This is the fitting, probably same part number for various Jeeps, that attaches the vent hose to the front differential. They are notorious for breaking off or falling out. The vent prevents the higher pressure after warm-up from blowing out the axle seals. I want to replace the cheap plastic fitting with a brass version from a hardware store. I know it can be done, but I don't know the thread size of the fitting.
