Re: What is typically goes bad on the 2.5L engines?
I have a 91 YJ W/ 2.5, 5spd. It had 105k when I bought it a little over 2 years ago, now it has 188k. [img]images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img]

I've had to replace the tranny, throw out bearing, starter, alternator, water pump, fuel pump, belts, hoses, plugs, wires, cap, rotor, a couple universal joints and lots of air filters. It's only failed to start 3 times, the first and last times were due to dirty air filters and the second time I flooded it out (Don't ask [img]images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img]) and it lost lube to the rings and wouldn't start for over a week. (I could have gotten it started if I had known to put a little oil in the combustion chambers [img]images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img])
Other than all that I'm extremely satisfied with it. [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
EDIT>>>Almost forgot.. Don't trust the gas gauge, I've ran out I don't know how many times with it reading 1/4 tank and once with it reading 1/2 tank.(I carry extra gas on trips) [img]images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img] [img]images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]
