Default 2000 Cherokee Questions/Help

Hey guys just bought a used Jeep.My first jeep so have some questions.

1st Question. I have a electrical plug in hanging down in the middle of the front bumper? (I would say it would be a Liscense plate light but no Light on the front bumber) Any idea's where it goes.

2nd Going to change all fluids, was looking at the Auto Tranny pan. When I do the filter it looks like the dips stick goes all the way down into the pan.Does that come down with the pan?

3rd. Going to change plugs and I guess (sorry 4.0 Auto) it has Coils? Do you remove the whole coil Bar? You can even see the plugs. Only looks to be about 4-6 bolts?

Thanks for your help and I'm sure I will ahve some more questions later.

It could have had added foglamps on the front bumper... are there extra holes or are the wee plastic caps missing?

The dipstick tube has a slip-sleeve in the middle with an o-ring. Drop the pan and the o-ringed lower section will slide out.

3rd. Going to change plugs and I guess (sorry 4.0 Auto) it has Coils? Do you remove the whole coil Bar? You can even see the plugs. Only looks to be about 4-6 bolts?

Remove the coil pack... don't unplug it, just take the bolts out and it will swing up and out of the way.

Don't use Bosch Platinums unless you want to get really experienced at pulling the coil pack.

Thanks for your help and I'm sure I will ahve some more questions later.

It does have the fog lamps and I checked them and they both seemed to plug into something. They don't work?Do they both plug into a harness in the middle of the truck?

the plug is for a outside temp sensor if you have an overhead counsel...

tranny filter is a waste of time, you will see why if you take it out... just change the oil..

the coil pack bar is a pain, just dont unhook the plug harness
