Which transfer case you have 242 (Selec-Trac on the shifter bezel) or 249 (Quadra-Trac on the shifter bezel). If it's a 242, you're looking at probable linkage adjustment which is done underneath the vehicle. If it's a 249, you're possibly looking at viscous coupling (VC) lockup.

Adjust the shift linkage; heres what to did...

...the blue arrow indicates where the linkage originally was (the lock nut screw), moved it down the green rectangle is showing the back of front driveshaft near the tcase, just for perspective.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using Fixya, and have a nice day.

I need to replace the water pump,. How do I remove it and what are the torque specs for the bolts on installation


take the engine cowl off you do not need to remove the rad ,undo the viscous fan reverse thread on this -- the remove the pump ,the torque setting i would have to look up in the haynes book but i would say about 12/15 lbs but just tighten up with a 3/8 rachet and hold about halfway along the hangle and use two fingers to pull it and that should be the right torque

What is the torque specs for a 1998 jeep Cherokee classic straight 6 4.0 liter? I am replacing the head gasket and need to find the lbs of torque. Thank you for any advice, pictures, etc.


Torque sequence ------------------ front | 12 8 4 1 5 9 13 | of | | engine | 11 7 3 2 6 10 14 | ------------------ Final torque must be reached in 3 equal steps Step 1: torque all bolts (except bolt 11) to 110 Ft/Lbs Step 2: torque bolt 11 to 100 Ft/Lbs Recheck final torque in sequence.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Drain the cooling system.
  3. Disconnect the hoses at the thermostat housing.
  4. Properly relieve the fuel system pressure.
  5. Remove the cylinder head cover.
  6. Loosen the rocker arms.
  7. Remove the pushrods.

The valvetrain components must be replaced in their original positions.
  1. Remove the intake and exhaust manifold from the cylinder head.
  2. Disconnect the spark plug wires and remove the spark plugs.
  3. Disconnect the temperature sending unit wire, ignition coil and bracket assembly from the engine.
  4. Remove the accessory drive belt(s).
  5. Unbolt and set aside the power steering pump and bracket. Do not disconnect the hoses.
  6. Remove the intake and exhaust manifold assembly.
  7. If equipped with A/C, perform the following:
    1. Remove the compressor and position it aside with the lines attached.
    2. Remove the compressor bracket bolts from the cylinder head.
    3. Loosen the through bolt at the bottom of the bracket.

  8. Remove the alternator.
  9. Remove the cylinder head bolts, the cylinder head and gasket from the block.

Bolt No. 14 cannot be removed until the head is moved forward. Pull the bolt out as far as it will go and suspend in place by wrapping with tape.
  1. Discard the gasket. Thoroughly clean the head-to-block mating surface.
  2. Clean and inspect the cylinder head thoroughly. Refer to the engine reconditioning portion outlined later in this section.

To install:
  1. Coat a new head gasket with suitable sealing compound and place it on the block. Most replacement gaskets will have the word TOP stamped on them.

Apply sealing compound only to the cylinder head gasket. Do not allow sealing compound to enter the cylinder bore.

Need torque specs for oil pan bolts


torque specs for these bolts can be found in a Haynes or Chilton manual availiable from your local parts store, or maybe at your local library, however these bolts are usually no more than 14 ft pounds, unlike cylinder head bolts, the bolts do not need to have any stretch factor to hold the oil pan gasket in place or sealed.

Bolt torque values for NP249 additional info


Basicly at the dealer we use air tools to put together the t-case. Air ratchet for the housing and impact for the yoke nut. What it comes down to is when the bolts on the housing is tight, you give it that extra snug.

It takes alot of torque to get the viscous coupling to turn.
There is nothing wrong with your vehicle.
If you can turn the wheel, then you need a 700.00 viscous coupler.(plus labor)
