Default 1995 ZJ - Slow And Steady

Bought this Jeep for $700 basically for the body which is in good enough shape to drive around town but scratched/dented enough to take off road. When I bought it I was told that the oil pressure kept falling but replaced the oil sending unit. So far so good. We will see what is next is store for me.

Stay tuned.

Default Let's check out the motor...uh..well

Ok. First problem. I went to go open the hood and I noticed that the hood release handle was broken. I messed with this for a little bit then figured out an easy fix....I cut the cable and decided to replace the release cable after I'm done getting this thing road worthy.

Default Leaking Trans Fluid

I noticed some transmission fluid leaking in the front and tracked down the leak. Looks like the previous owner rearended someone. I'm not sure if there is a trans cooler in the front or what but the trans lines are leaking in front of the radiator. I took off the front bumper and noticed that the reinforment bar was pushed against the trans line. Hopefully I will be able to use a slide hammer and pull away the reinforcement bar from the lines. It looks like the radiator fins are damaged too so I might replace that while I'm at it.

Default Front Crossmember Installed

Well, I installed the cross member, hood release cable, valve cover gaskets, pcv valve, breather valve, fuel filter, and a few other odds and ends to get the Jeep running properly. (Sorry no pics of cross member install)

I was having low oil pressure when the Jeeps heated up so I replaced the oil sending unit. The oil pressure still goes low after the Jeep heats up. I now have a knocking in the motor, 180k miles. I guess that is why I bought it so cheap. $700. Since I'll be keeping this Jeep for awhile, I'm going to build a 360 motor and throw that in there
