To write out instructions would take many pages. I suggest you get a manual. Here are some general tips though. When removing items write down everything you do for install reference. Label all plug ends with different coloured electrical tape not only on the plug, but on the component it goes to (match up on install.) Put everything you remove in boxes and cans. there is nothing like trying to find a lost bolt, etc. during install!! Look carefully at new and old engine. Anything different on new one must be replaced with old engine parts, so it matches up when installed. If replacement is used, check for any and all oil leaks it's far easier to deal with them out of the vehicle. As a rule, if replacement engine has over 100k on it, I replace the timing chain. Most are well worn by that time.If you did not hear or see the replacement run, check spark plugs for good burn pattern and colour, if you find burned residue, you don't want that engine!!! Do not forget to repalce any lost fluid from trans, transfer case etc before firing it up!!!

Coolant isn't circulating in the engine of a Jeep 2002 Grand Cherokee V8. Radiator was just replaced as well as the water pump and thermostat.


Hi Jonny, While the engine is cold the thermostat will be closed, allowing coolant circulation around the engine block and cylinder head but not through the radiator. Only when the engine has reached normal operating temperature will circulation be noted in the radiator. A good test is to remove the thermostat while the engine is cold , start the engine with the radiator pressure cap removed and observe flow. If as I suspect it is there, refit the thermostat and check the heat gauge. If all remains well there is no problem. If the engine overheats replace another thermostat. If there is no circulation with the thermostat removed, there is a blockage in the cooling galleries of the engine. If chemical flushing does not clear it, it will require disassembly of the engine with careful step by step inspection at every stage. If the cylinder head(s) had been removed I would suggest making sure of the galleries not being blocked by installing the gaskets incorrectly. Regards John

1996 Jeep Cherokke 5.2 grand laredo, missing on acceleration found loose distributer need to set timing.


Base (initial) ignition timing is NOT adjustable. Do not attempt to adjust ignition timing by rotating the distributor. All ignition timing functions are controlled by the Powertrain Control Module.Adjusting the timing on a Jeep Grand Cherokee requires special tools and an understanding of engine mechanics. Changing the timing on a Jeep Grand Cherokee with distributor-less ignition requires professional reprogramming of the powertrain control module. This guide covers Jeep Grand Cherokee models with distributed ignition only. you can go to this site and it will explain it. www.ehow.com/how_4521340_adjust-timing-jeep have a good day !!

Will a 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4.0L engine work


Computer hookup should be the same and physically it's the same engine. Only thing I can think of to check on is the engine mounts (not sure but there may have been a change there. Also, make sure you keep the same flywheel position in relation to the crankshaft and that both flywheels are identical in every way including tooth count.

Life expentancy of 1996 grand jeep cherokee engine


If the engine doesnt smoke to much and if you dont have to add much oil between oil changes and you cant hear any unusal noises from the engine you should be able to run that car for many more miles. My dad has a 92 Jeep Cherokee and he over 300,000 miles on it and it still goes as long as you take care of it with regular oil changes you should have no problems
