Default XJ Ask the Question Thread

This thread is for all those who would like to ask something tech related and don't want to start a new thread or hijack someone elses, and for all those tech related questions you happen to ask in the big off topic threads. Me and some of the older members will answer every kind of question as long as it is TECH and polite.
P.S. for the newbs: stupid questions don't exist, there are only stupid answers. Feel free to ask whatever you want. "What is a Jeep?" is a good question....

EDIT: If your question is very common (eg: lift) please DO A RESEARCH FIRST and if you don't find the answer come back here, 75% of the questions can be answered within a 5/10 min browse using the "SEARCH" button on the black banner menu.
For any lift & tire questions go here first: https://www.cherokeeforum.com/f2/all...go-here-10579/

I just ripped out the dreaded wet floor pad inside my Jeep. The passenger rear floor is pretty rusty but cleaned up well, has about 3 holes the size of a standard screwdriver.Is this a cut out and weld project or can bondo or something save it ?

The passenger rear floor is the most subjected to rust because it is very near to the muffler. If the holes are small you can bondo but if the contours are rusty it won't stay on at long. You need to remove all the rust first then take a nice picture for us.

Definitely more of a bondo work. If you want it to work well you will need to clean all the rust also from the bottom.

X2. I agree. Newbs and others need a place to get answers without starting a bunch of random threads.

Maybe it wasn't glued back in the exact same/correct spot. The air gap is crucial on the CPS. You may end up replacing it.
You can also check the connector to verify it's clean and making a good connection.

I glued it back in the same spot (got all the little grooves and things lined bck in the same spots) as best I could but you may be right I may not have it back in the exact same spot...was hoping I didn't have to replace it because i'm broke lol...i did clean the connector real well on both sides and cleaned the end of the connector on bellhousing side too
