    Hey man, I was going to get a Renix Upgrade from Leigh Machine, but I have seen several posts say they no longer do these. Do you have any contact info for him or know of another bolt on alternative? The throttle shaft is worn on my sons 89 (not bad for 320,000 miles! ) and it his Chero is bone stock, so I could go back with another stock one I have, but I like the idea of a new baseplate.

    Your work for Renix's is inspiring! Have a great weekend,

    Thanks - I have a backup O2 sensor (Mopar).
    Since I have the exhaust manifold off now, any real benefit by having it ceramic coated, inside and out, or getting rid of those left over beads from the factory weld job? Mostly to prevent rust and smooth out the flow through it? Thanks Cruiser54.

    2 different tests

    D2. Pin 8 for ground. Pin 4 for battery power. Key ON

    D1. Pin 5 for battery power and use any good ground in the engine bay for the negative lead. Key OFF.

    Hello Cruiser.

    I put a new alternator on my XJ 4.0 1989 (Renix).

    But, when I connect the RenixCom.exe software the value of battery voltage is:
    3.7V (Key On, Engine OFF)
    4.6V (Engine On).

    Seems that there is about 10V of voltage drop.

    Could be the ECU bad internally?
    Concerning the D2 diagnostic connector, which of ground pin should I use?

    - Sensor Ground
    - Ground

    I would say you are good to go.

    Ever replace your oxygen sensor? Use NGK only.

    Hey Cruiser54 - long time since I've been here. I am about to replace the exhaust manifold on my '88 jeep xj. I found an NOS/OEM Mopar manifold AND original new gasket for 160.00. I was wondering if there is anything I might change out when the shop does the work. I know they have to take the intake manifold off. Ideas that don't go what I call "too far"? (that would be like upgrading the manifold to headers or getting a newer intake manifold) thanks for everything in the past and look forward to hearing if you have some ideas. THanks.

    BTW - the exhaust has a crack and it's getting louder.

    I finally did c101 delete still no luck new o2 sensor and map as well even though they tested good I hate throwing parts at stuff lol makes me feel like a ****ty mechanic but I'm out of knowledge here. I got my sensor ground down to .3 ohms pulled pcm apart and no evidence of any burning or heat there I'm looking at possible ignition control module issues now is there a way to test the icm ? My cps is new, drilled and putting out .4 AC volts and the power and ground to icm are good
