    Default Build Thred Sorta

    OK its not a build but rather a RE-BUILD.

    I have been haveing all kinds of motor problems with the XJ. Well I got a call today from a fellow member and he has a 4.0 with 80,000 miles on it for me. I am going to pick it up in the next 1/2 hour and we will do the swap in the next couple weeks. I will take pix and keep this updated but this is a straight simple swap

    OK Got the motor and all the stuff with it. It came out of a 98 XJ and is going into a 92 XJ. We will see how it goes. Anybody local to Ft Wood have an engine hoist and or engine stand they wanna let me borrow for a bit. My plan is pull my motor and put the two side by side and simply pull what need off the old motor and put it on the new motor and of course clean everything as it goes.

    Well the motor replacemnet may be going on hold. I have 2 sources for injectors that I will replace mine with to see if thats my problem (I beileive it is) If the injectors are found to be the culprit I will get new injectors to put in mine and then change the oil 2-3 times and then I should be good to go
