Question about Cars & Trucks
Looking to get this jeep if we can replace the stuck lifter with out changing the motor out. Does anyone knows if this can be done?
Here is what I would do first. Get a can of Seafoam Motor Tune. You should be able to find it at any good parts store. Wal-mart may also have it in their auto section. Add 1/2 can to the engine oil. Start the engine and let it run. If it is a stuck hydraulic lifter I have yet to have this not fix it. Once the noise is gone change the oil. Add the other half of the can to the oil and drive it unti the next oil change. If the noise does not go away I would need to know what engine you have. You should be able to replace lifter without pulling the enigine engine. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

You need to remove all the skrews from the door. Normaly there is one in the handle of the door, one behind the in door lach handel and one under the bump out for the arm rest on the door. Than you need to take a flat head skrew driver slowly priying the panel off. There are plastic clips on the backside of the panel it is ok if you brake a few.

There are two parts to it, a voltage resistor, and the EL panel itself.
You need to remove the console first. There are 2 screws under the front rubber pad, two under the cup holder, two in the bin. Remove those six first, take the storage bin out, then slide the rear cupholder out, remove the two screws under the cup holder, and one in front of it.
There are a total of 6 flat screws, and 3 self tapping screws you have removed.
Put the parking brake on, shift the tranny to N, and the transfer case to the middle position if equipped.
Remove the entire console. Slide the shifter beezel as far up vertically as you can. There are 4 clips you ned to remove to do it.
You will see a blue and black wire running into the back. Follow those wires to the resistor. You will see a transparent EL panel attatched to the resistor by two clips.
Usually, one or both of these clips has come loose, causing the light to work intermittantly. Clip them back on, and turn on the headlights to confirm that the light works correctly now.
Re-install everything in the opposite order.
