  1. Hey guys was wondering if I could have some advice , I put my spare wheel on the front drivers side of my 2016 JK. Ever since the traction control warning light (not the one that tells you if it’s on or off) has been permanently on. Also sometimes the brakes act like it’s on snow or ice. Since then we have bought 4 new tires so all 4 treads are identical wear. Any advice would be greatly appreciated, thanks
  2. I am the owner of a 1986 CJ7 I had everything rebuilt carburetor generator radiator blah blah blah put in a rebuilt motor I purchased. Wasn’t happy with carburetion so I added a Howell electronic feel ignition system . Now it runs great spontaneously it will start acting like it’s starving for fuel, check engine light coming on permanently or flashing at different times I can pretty much always do the speed limit and drive it but it will not always perform well
  3. I need help with no idle , starts up fast but go's to a fast idle ( 2500 rpm ?) and then dies. I have been working on this jeep on and off form about ten years and owning the Jeep since 78. I have remove / replaced and move everything and now I'm putting back . I must have something wrong some where. put on headers and glass packs with duel exhaust on a 258 s6. any thought's.
  4. I have a 94 F-150 with E4OD and it would not shift. I could manually shift through the gears and it would do fine. I replaced the shift solenoid and now it will not engage any gear, forward or reverse. Please help
  5. Hi, I've been hunting and chasing my tail to get some kind of throttle response from my wrangler above 45 MPH. I know these are not very powerful to start but I feel like what I'm experiencing is abnormal. Anywhere above about 45MPH when throttle is given There is little or no response from the engine. I have gone through the tuning and troubleshooting, replaced numerous things and adjusted what is able to be adjusted to the best of my understanding. Most recently I put a new cylinder head on due to a cracked web between valves on cylinder 4. I was so sure this was going to solve my
  6. I've been working on my 1987 YJ Wrangler 2.5L TBI for sometime now. I put in a new gas pump, gas tank, fuel filter plugs and a distributor cap. Before that I put in a new radiator due to an overheating issue. When I get out and drive for about 20 minutes it just dies and will not start back up. I let it sit for about 10 minutes and I can get another 20 minute run out of it. Please help me to get cruising again.
  7. I've read that drilling out the upper mounting hole will get my cps a hair closer to the flex plate BUT that is just close enough to improve the voltage to a much more respectable reading. My problem is, I haven't read anything that clarifies which hole. Am I drilling the mount hole on the bell housing or the one on the cps bracket. And this is my first post so I'll let y'all get the flaming out of your systems now with a second question. What in the wide wide world of sports are us early 2.5 (1987) TBI remix guys supposed to do when we need a MAT (NOT MAP) Sensor? NLA
  8. The high cost of new vehicles has its counterpart in rising dealership labor costs. Shop labor has crept up, and more consumers find themselves working on their own vehicles. This starts with basic lube and oil/filter changes, spark plugs and an air filter. Then comes the transmission filter and the cooling system flushes. AutoZone, NAPA and O'Reilly's, much like Home Depot and Lowe's, cater to a growing number of DIY customers. Expect this trend to continue. As vehicles fall out of factory warranty, consumers make choices. While the average wage for American workers is now $24.57 p
  9. When we were in kindergarten, it was common to take a watch apart—and not get it back together. Some of us, not content with things that no longer worked, went on to fixing things instead of just taking them apart. Toying with mechanical things versus putting things back together properly is for most a clear fork in the road. In my early childhood, I was fascinated with all things that rolled: trucks, cars, bicycles, motorized cycles, locomotives, take your pick! By age eleven, with the go kart and mini-bike craze in full swing, a neighbor built his sons a gasoline powered, wooden car
  10. Hello to All.... I wish to thank all the members and especially you Mr. Ludell for all the time spent on our endless problems.... I have reviewed all the posts that might pertain to my problem and do not wish to ask a question that can be easily answered by simple review... My YJ has had an.. "on again / off again" problem that may not be related to this exact problem but it just seems to have never been 100 % or maybe even 80%... The current problem started on an outing in the woods ..drove fine climbing, downhill and 4wd.. coming back the engine began to act like it was
  11. My 1966 summer job at age seventeen was loading and driving the campground garbage truck at Mono Village, Upper Twin Lakes, California. Our hauler was a postwar 2-1/2 ton Chevrolet Advance Design truck with a lift bed. Other chores were performed with various WWII surplus vehicles. One, a WWII weapons carrier pickup, was a Dodge WC 4x4. The truck had extremely low gearing and a staid, inline L-head six cylinder engine that cranked over slowly with its 6-volt electrical system but never failed to start. At the peak of the 'sixties muscle car era, this workhorse was relegated to campground duty.
  12. My 2000 F-350 V-10 4x4 Over Drive light just started flashing last week. The vehicle has 90,000 miles on it. I just purchased it 8 months ago, so I'm not sure if the fluid has been changed...any ideas on what I should try first ? I took it to Oreilly's Auto to have the codes checked. My codes are : P1000 P0783
  13. So I replaced the head assembly, rods, lifters, cam, timing chain, etc. Everything except the pistons basically. I took it to a mechanic at first but after taking it apart e decided he didn't want to work on it. I've put it back together without any left over parts. I know the cam timing is ok, I lined up the dots on the sprockets (see photo). When I dropped in the distributor I had the oil pump notch just past the 3 o'clock position, and when it dropped in the rotor was at the 6 o'clock position just like the manual says. But to make things even better, when the engine is turning over, every
  14. I recently rebuilt an AX 5 transmission, first time doing so, not new to rebuilding transmission though. After replacing all the bearing and synchronizing rings, first and second shift fork and collar and all other clips and springs necessary. I now have a couple issues, first off it will not shift into 5th or reverse ( it did on the bench) second issue is when I drove it it was very difficult to shift from 1st to 2nd and visa versa. I am thinking 1st/2nd issue would be the detents and springs in the hub assembly. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!
  15. New here and tried searching but came up with nothing similar. My 06 LJ 4.0 (155000 miles) recently developed a habit of going to a fast idle/high rev of around 1500 RPM's or so. If I blip the throttle it settles down until you take of again and it repeats. I installed a Genright 31.5 gallon fuel tank and replaced the fuel pump assembly at the same time because it was a whole lot easier and I didn't want to drop the new tank anytime soon. I had a code for EVAP system small leak which I attributed to the vent hose from the tank to the filler neck as the hose that came with the tank was rath
  16. I have purchased an 87 yj tbi 2.5. With help from this site I have been tinkering with this thing trying to get it to run as its suppose to especially in this cold weather. I was looking at my egr valve while I was replacing the vacuum lines and noticed it was unhooked and the line feeding it is plugged. I did notice that the vacuum port on the egr was facing the front of the jeep, that seems to be the wrong direction to me.
  17. Hello All, i need your help. i have a 2.5L that I cannot make run with the MAP sensor plugged in. I have tested the MAP sensor and it reads good. i have tested the MAT, Engine Temp and Idle Air Control Motor as well. Replaced the TPS, O2 sensor and the ECU. i have checked for Vacuum leaks and have come up with nothing. it runs better with the MAP unplugged from vacuum. I am running out of ideas. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  18. 95 f 150 xlt with a 5.8 l v-8...tranny was kinda slipping, had to manually shift it even tho it was auto, taking off in drive was just too sluggish sluggish to move...lost 1st and 2nd (might as well say we lost all gears cause u cant take off in drive) so all thats left is drive and reverse...changed fluid, no metal shavings or chunks but was def. burnt but new fluid and filter made no changes in it.....help
  19. I have a F350 4 x 4, 5.4L, I am having an issue when I am driving anywhere from 40 to 75, it feels like someone going 100 miles per hour rams right into the back of my truck then it seems as if the gear gets stuck, it causes me whiplash almost and also my tires screech. Then I have to pull over and turn off vehicle for it to kind of reset it self. Does it happen all the time no. Is it happening more frequently, yes. The code that was flashing was for a solenoid sensor so that was replaced. Can you give some sort of direction. After code was fixed we thought issue was fixed and no still did

  21. Hi Moses I purchased your AX-15 rebuild video on vimeo. I also downloaded the AX-15 service manual before I started this project. When I started this project it was supposed to be a simple clutch install. How ever when I removed the transmission from the Jeep which is a 93 YJ Sahara. I noticed that the pilot bearing had grenaded and part of the inner race had welded its self to the input shaft on the transmission. I figured since I will have to tear the transmission down to replace the input shaft I might as well do a full rebuild since I had noticed some grinding going into 3
