The great state of California and I once again disagree on how well my engine is running. Its an 82 CJ7 258ci with about 2500 miles since complete rebuild. Hesco MOPAR MPI kit added. And to me it seems to run great. But I failed smog due to high NO. All other tests (including HC and CO) passed. The strange thing is, the last time (two years ago) I passed no problem. Since then I have not made any changes. I did check faults and it was showing a code for the O2 sensor. Since I read that it is a common cause I thought I had my solution. Unfortunately when I went for a re-check it still did not pass. The smog guy asked if I drove the Jeep after replacing the O2 sensor to let the computer adjust operating parameters. But I had only driven it a few mile to the shop for a re-check. How far do I typically need to drive to get things to reset? The O2 sensor fault has not returned. Is there a way to know if the problem is gone without spending the money on another check? Lou
I have a 5 speed CJ7 and want to convert to an automatic with overdrive for highway travel. Which transmission should I choose?
Moses, You have been an incredible source of information to me. I recently (several months ago) had my 1985 258 professionally rebuilt. It was balanced, torque plated etc etc. You helped me then. My 1985 CJ7 is completely stock, no changes seem to have been made. Components are all original to this jeep and are OEM. Currently the 258 is on an engine stand and I have removed the trans and T case. The T5 and Dana 300 are now sitting on my bench. I have watched the Dana 300 rebuild here and of course have your Rebuilders Guide. I feel comfortable with the Dana 300 rebuild and intend to do so. FYI: I will be having East Coast Gear change my D30 and AMC 20 from 2.73 to probably 3.73. I have no intention for hard wheeling nor do I want tires larger than 31 inches diameter. My Jeep will be mostly on the highway and occasionally on a Jeep like trail and snow. No hard wheeling of any kind. There are so many places on the web that will rebuild my T5 for around $950, all good, but I want my specific transmission (1352-077) to remain with this vehicle as from the factory. I would also like to build my experience with transmissions. I am willing to buy all necessary tools and parts to rebuild correctly. Arbor press, pullers, bearing installers....it doesn't matter. When finished, I will have an excellent rebuild and all the tools. Henry Ford said: "If you need a tool and don't buy it...you'll eventually pay for it...and not have it". I am a firm believer. I have the T5 FSM. I have attached a huge video file (32 mb) of my input shaft movement. VID_20160520_182156231.mp4 If I send ,lots of pictures etc can you help me rebuild my T5? Reid
Ok, next question. Will a ax15 from a 93 yj work with the 88 renix as long as I have the bell housing? I have the clutch and fly wheel from the ba 10 that was on it. Also, will the hydraulic clutch system from my T4 work with that trans.? I guess you all could tell but I have very few mechanics skills but I am mechanical so Im trying to figure this stuff out as I go. There are very few mechanics and no junk yards within 100 miles so it is difficult for me to grab a donor vehicle. This means I need to know what Im getting into before I commit to higher dollar items. Thanks for any help you can give.
