#944 of 1888 Catalytic Converter Recall Question
Jun 25, 2007 (6:02 am)
I have a Jeep Wrangler 1997 and catalytic converter needs replacing. I did see online Chrysler Extended the warranty on the catalytic converters 10 years/120K miles. This was from a California EPA EPA settlement. Does this apply to only CA jeeps or is this warranty nation wide. I called 2 dealerships, they punch in my VIN # and they say not covered under a recall or extended warranty. I guess I will have to pay for the repair.

From my experience you might have better luck in you can locate an old established dealership.
Do not ask about warranty on the phone. Make an appointment for the repair. This makes you a customer, not just a "looky-lou" bugging them on the phone.
Look for the old mellow dude in service. He is probably the one who can help you.
I had a cat. replaced at a Dodge dealer (brand new high volume bright shiny place). Three days in the shop. I paid the whole bill.
A month later the truck was still not running right. Stopped in to an old Chrysler Dealer. Red brick and wood floors. Some of the furniture looked like it was from the 40s.
They told me the wrong Cat. was on the truck and was causing the problem. They replaced the Cat. muffler and tailpipe, tune-up and an oil change. No charge. Took about 40 minutes.

#948 of 1888 1999 Will Studder while on warm up
Jun 25, 2007 (5:14 pm)
I have a 1999 Jeep Wrangler that in the first two minutes of driving will fall on its face between temperatures of:
150 deg. and 190 degs
If you drive through it everything is fine. If I go to the mall and park it for a while it starts all over again. Going down the road it only last for 300 - 400 yards. Watching the temp change it goes away before 210 on the gage.

Step back, take a look at your TJ.
It has all the aerodynamics of a brick with a sail.
13-15 mpg is about all it will ever get.
Anybody that tells you they do better just lie.
The same motor in a Cherokee will do about 20 mpg.
You pay to play.

I think your jeep has drain bramage.
You can watch it die a slow and painful death.
It would be better to do a Dr.K on it.
1 high velocity 240 grain 44 caliber round in the throttle body should do the trick.
#951 of 1888 2004 TJ Rubicon locker problem
Jun 25, 2007 (8:12 pm)
When I push the dash switch to engage the air lockers, both the REAR LOCK and FRONT LOCK lights on the dash flash continuously. I don't believe that the lockers are engaging, either. Any ideas as to what the problem may be?
#952 of 1888 98 TJ Rear Problem
Jun 26, 2007 (8:00 am)
Got a fun one for you guys. My baby is at Aamco right now and they don't know what to tell me. '98 manual 4.0L with standard axles and a positraction rear and 20k miles (yes 20!). For some reason over the past few weeks its been squealing a rear tire (inside I think) when I go around turns hitting the gas even lightly, but only when I hit the gas, then there is a snap/clunk noise and the squealing stops. It's been getting louder every week until last night it did the same deal but the wheel just seemed to lock and I ended up facing the road I just drove down. Let me know if anyone has the slighest idea what is happening to my jeep.
#953 of 1888 skid plate re-install?
Jun 26, 2007 (9:00 am)
I just removed the skid plate to my 97 Wrangler to install an new exhuast system. Bolts holding it in place were welded. Not sure best way to reinstall the skid plate, tap bolt holes to screw in new bolt, or have dealer reweld it back in place? It is difficult to find the correct size tap for the bolts.
Looking for any advice.
