Smile found squealing on 2003 , 4 litre , tj


After weeks of pondering about the squeal from my engine bay. I took a chance and changed the idler pulley on the 4 litre engine.

The dealer changed the water pump last spring and also said the idler wheeler needed changing. All is good with the idler wheeler changed.

$29.00 cdn.

happy new year to all

Good! I never think of the idler and tensioner, since my Jeep is not so equipped, but they are common sources of strange noises.

EVERYTHING's easy for the guy who doesn't have to do it.
