Question about 1997 Jeep Tj

3 Answers

Exhaust Manifold I am changing the exhuast manifold on my 97 Jeep Wrangler 4.0 6 cyl. I have all of the bolts out, the serpentine belt off and the exhaust pipe unbolted from the manifold itself. However, it doesn't want to budge. Is there something else to unbolt? Maybe where the power steering pump is bolted in?

How to replace exhaust donut on 99 wrangler


This is pretty straight forward, you need to locate the exhaust manifold and follow it down to where it connect to the exhaust pipe, there three bolts on the joint and you take those out. Then see if you can separate the pipe from the manifold. If you cannot separate them then you need to get under the jeep and loosen the holders for the exhaust pipe. When you can separate the joint, take the old doughnut out and put in the new one. Make sure that you get it tight and that you tighten the bolts evenly. Don't over tighten one side.

I need to replace the exhaust manifold on a 1995 Jeep Wrangler with a 4.0L HO engine. What are the torque specs for the bolts and is there a specific pattern?


Don't have a sendable diagram so here it is in words: Beginning with the bottom row, tighten the center bolt to the right of cylinder #4, then the one just to the left of cyl #3. Then the one directly above at the center of both. Continue by tightening the bolt to the left of cyl#2, then to the right of cyl#5 then the one to the front, left of cyl #1, then the remaining lower bolt to the right of cyl#6. Move to the top row, tightening the ont to the right of cyl #2, then the front, above cyl #1, then the rear ones, above cyl #5, then the far back one above cyl 6. Torque is supposed to be 24 foot lbs except bolts 6 and 7 but I've found it makes no difference. What I've found to be important though is to re check torque after running it up to operating temp and permitting it to completely cool down. Also, never tear it down while it's still hot. That promotes warping.

Replaced exhaust manifold on 99 jeep wrangler. turned ignition to start up and engine screams in full throttle, what could be the problem: vacuum, sensor???


The intake manifold is the common culprit for this. It may look like it is flush to the block, but it isnt and is causing a huge vaccum leak. There are two locating dowel pins that the manifold must be flush on before tightning the bolts. The usual problem is that the manifold is resting on top of these pins instead of flush, causing a gap. You have to unbolt the intake and exhaust manifolds, relocate the intake and replace the bolts.

How to replace exhaust manifold gasket 1989 jeep wrangler 4.2


I also have an '89 Wrangler with a 4.2 liter inline six. I'm afraid that the spark plugs aren't on the same side as the manifolds. Mine is being a pain in the *** for me. The intake is lining up fine but the exhaust is off by about 1/4 of an inch in the way of a bolt. Was hoping for some solutions, left disappointed.

What do you loosen to remove serpentine belt from 1991 jeep wrangler with ac and power steering. thanks 4 cyl. 2.5


There is an idler pulley close to the power steering. Loosen the bolt that goes through the front of the idler pulley first. Then you will see the head of a bolt looking up at you. Turn the bolt clockwise to tighten and counterclockwise to loosen. The pulley is attached to the threaded bolt and it moves the pulley up or down as needed to adjust the belt tension. When the belt is replaced turn the bolt until the belt is tight. Remember to check the belt again after a few hundred miles. A new belt will stretch and loosen.

Have a hole in exhaust manifold


not that hard you drop the exhaust and take the manifold off and replace it with a new one, you have to lubricate the bolts to get them out but anyone can do it
