    You are 1000% correct. At this point it is rotting in a lot. I've got too much on my plate to mess with it. I'll wait until Jan. or Feb. and make an offer.

    That's probably what the new owner/dealer thought when he mentioned the newly taped wiring at the firewall. Which he didn't check because he thought it was already checked. Thanks for that info.

    2000 Jeep Cherokee 4.0, auto, 125,000 mi.

    It's been setting for close to two years. The dealer I originally talked to said he had to take it back from a buyer. The current owner/dealer probably thinks he can spend some time and find something. He mentioned a problem involving a wiring harness. When he checked that, someone had already...

    2000 Jeep Cherokee 4.0, auto, 125,000 mi.

    $1,100 takes it. It hasn't had a lot of miles put on it since I first looked at it. Body and interior are nice. It doesn't look almost 20 years old. Running, I think it's worth $2000+. To date probably five or six shops have had a go at it. Some of the garages have competent white-haired...

    2000 Jeep Cherokee 4.0, auto, 125,000 mi.

    It's not my Jeep. I'm not about to fix a car belonging to a dealer. Especially when I might buy it. It's priced low now because the shops in the region haven't been able to fix it. It's got a new rail, new plugs, new coil packs, etc. At this point, I don't think there's much left to replace if...

    2000 Jeep Cherokee 4.0, auto, 125,000 mi.

    Sorry to bring this back. An oldie and not a goody. The Jeep has been passed onto another dealer where it sets off to the side. Still runs great. When it doesn't the miss comes back and it's a dog. Supposedly the rail was replaced. The current owner/dealer thinks it's a wiring issue. Is there a...

    2000 Jeep Cherokee 4.0, auto, 125,000 mi.

    I haven't done anything to check the Jeep other than think about an offer. The dealer wants to get rid of it. The body and interior look good. Right now, I'm going to let it set. I may check under the hood later. I'm in no hurry. I've got beau coup work to do on my own stuff before getting...

    I have no idea how much it was run after all of the garages "fixed" it. I know the dealer sold it and had to buy it back. I got the impression it had been to several garages. I noticed it setting several months ago. Today was the first time I found the owner out front as I drove by.

    2000 Jeep Cherokee 4.0, auto, 125,000 mi.

    Codes just indicate miss on one and six. AFAIK, the vehicle is stock. Several garages have looked at it and came up with zip other than what's been done so far. Best guess now is a "wiring" problem." The Jeep has been setting on a dealer lot for two years. I suspect it's something weird that...

    2000 Jeep Cherokee 4.0, auto, 125,000 mi.

    Runs great at times for the most part. Other times cylinder one and six miss. Coil packs have been changed and swapped. New cam sensor and ECM. Any ideas????

    Triax lubricants?

    I was looking for a 15W40 synthetic oil for use in a diesel and ran onto this. Anyone heard of it? I thought Delvac had a 15W40 but apparently not anymore. http://www.triaxlubricants.com/triax-fleet-supreme-15w-40-cj-4-full-synthetic

    Sachs or Valeo

    Please fill out the following to ask a question. MAKE:Ford MODELF700 YEAR:1994 MILES:10k ENGINE:Cummins 5.9 DESCRIBE ISSUE.... The two choices from online sources for a clutch are made by either Valeo or Sachs. Valeo is cheaper. Anyone have experience with either manufacturer?

    F700 Clutch adjustment

    How difficult would the clutch be to replace for a shade tree mechanic?

    Looking for DT466 info.

    Thanks for the replies. I purchased a 1994 Ford with a 6BT Cummins instead of one of the Internationals.

    F700 Clutch adjustment

    Please fill out the following to ask a question. MAKE:Ford MODEL:F700 YEAR:1994 MILES:108,000 ENGINE:Cummins 6BT DESCRIBE ISSUE.... The clutch on the truck engages with the pedal almost all the way out. There's no discernible slippage. Can the clutch be adjusted to engage closer to the floor?
