Any news on getting a replacement part from jeep? My jeep has been in the shop for 12 days and there are no available clutch cylinders in sight. Besides if the same part is used I beleive chance of it breaking again is high.
Well at least I'm getting a lot of yard work done instead of running around off-road.
On top of making payments (my first payment is due soon) I didn't "FALL" for the extra service contract and now I have to pay the rental car out of my pocket.

I am in the same boat, uboat! No end in site. Dealer says they do not know when the part will be available. One service guy said maybe DC was in the process of producing an improved part.
If you want to use a joint effort to contact DC for an answer, email me at blueman2earthlink.net.

I wished I knew more about it, it was already in place when i got the jeep and i have had it less than 3 weeks i can tell you that the springs, shocks, stabilizers, and everything is brand new under the front end, and it is all made by Rusty's off road it is stamped on everything. Today when I had the top, and doors off I watched the left front wheel when it started happening and it looked like the wheel was warped or something it was wobbling so bad, but as i said I have rotated and balanced the tires so i know it's not a problem with them but it is happening just like the 2005 sierra in the earlier post only at slower speeds it's happening at about 30 to 35 mph's and once it gets past 40mph in 3rd gear (manual btw)it is like a dream driving, unless you hit a hard bump then it might start it again at no matter what the speed, i had it happen the other day and i was doing about 60 but i had hit a hard bump in the road. And oddly enough it seems to happen a lot less frequent when i rev up 2nd to about 3500 or 4k rpm's before changing into 3rd, it seems if i change into 3rd at a lower rpm it happens a lot more frequent, real head scratcher here
#180 of 1888 Drivers Seat '99 Jeep Wrangler Sport
Apr 04, 2006 (12:25 pm)
I recently purchased my third Wrangler, a '99 with the 4.0L, automatic. It was used with 41,000 miles on it. I have two issues. Is there a kit for the drivers seat that can increase the room and allow it back further. I am 6'-3" and would love a little more room, no big deal if not. My other is the 4WD shifter seems to be loose and causes quite a rattle while driving. Is this a common problem that is easily fixed, or does this take fairly extensive work with the transmission?

I just got my front and rear pinion seals replaced and it cost $200. I went to Goodyear Gemini to get it done. I have the same rattle that I just wrote a message about, mine comes from the 4wd shifter, they told me to take it to the dealer, but I am looking for advice too.

Check with Rustys, here,to see what you actually have. Assuming everything else to be correct i.e. suspension joints, bearings, fastenings etc., you may need to rotate the front axle to increase your caster angle. You won't be able to achieve factory specs, but you should get enough to solve the wobble.

The t/case shift lever and linkage is external to the transmission. Slide underneath and have a look to see what's loose.
#184 of 1888 trouble codes 97 Jeep Wrangler
Apr 06, 2006 (2:28 am)
I had a condition were drive ability was to about 4000 rpm's and then it wouldn't go any farther. below 4000 seemed ok at the curb. All I noticed was my exhaust manifold had some serious cracks at welded points, I removed my exhaust manifold and had it welded up. In the process I had disconnected my battery and cleaned and charged it. After putting every thing back together I am unable to start. It cranks but doesn't seem to fire. Fuel pressure seems to be around 45 psi, I see spark at plugs. I checked codes from key switch method and received 12,42 &55. Seems that 12 is battery was disconnected from ecm, 42 Auto shut down relay ? ,55 end of codes. I hooked up a hand held scanning tool in hopes to clear them and that device tells me there are no codes? Rechecked with key method and all 3 come up. Not sure if I'm getting the right descriptions from my Haynes manual on the 42 code. Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks Neil

Early '97 TJs weren't fully OBDII compliant, which might explain why your scan tool couldn't pull the codes. I'm not familiar with the early '97 codes, but obviously a faulty shutdown relay will prevent starting.
#186 of 1888 clunk in the rear end somewhere HELP

Hello I have a 89 jeep wrangler and it has a clunk noise in the back somewhere.sounds like the jeep is gonnabreak in half. It's not in the drivetrain I don't think it only does it when the jeep shifts weight or when you pull into a parking lot or driveway. I have put new shocks on it and can't find anything else wrong with it. the leaf spings seem ok.I don't see anything broke or loose the body mounts look ok .I can't figure it out. I need help.I don't even want to drive it like this. Sounds scary!!
please any advise you might have I would be greatfull..
