Crash course in 4cyl
My brother wants to go look at a Jeep tomorrow to buy. He's almost exactly the same age as I was when I bought my first Jeep. (16,1/2)
Anyways, he's found on 3+ hours away that were going to go check out. Its a 1990 4cly, 170,000kms on the clock. hardtop, hard doors, softtop, softdoors. Good body, good frame.. bla bla bla.. $3000 CDN.
Seems like a good deal to me. I'm gonna do the whole "kick the tires" thing for him.. and then get underneath the thing and do the whole "I actually know whats going on under here, so there better not be any funny stuff" buisness.
I've driven a 4cly before.. and know what it should feel like, but I've never worked on one. Any typical trouble spots? stuff to look out for?
Buddy (owner) says that the temp sender for the fuel injection system.. (the one in the manifold) just died.. so its running rich right now. Anyone got a ballpark figure on a new one.. might help with the purchase price. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]
Crossing my fingers for another jeep in the driveway..
