Your forward clutch is slipping, it wont do that for long before you cant move at all,
change your fluid and filter, and add lucas to the trans when you do, if you still have a problem, its over, you need it rebuilt

SOURCE: How do I replace the interior LH door handle 97 Jeep Wrangler?

you will need a t-20 or t-15 torx bit driver to remove 2 screws holding the handle this is all that holds them on, on once you have a replacement handle it is easier to remove 2 lower screws on the door panel and unsnap the door panel to loosen it this will allow space making it easier to reinstall new handle just slide each end into the slot and reinsert 2 screws to not fully tighten until door panel is snapped back in. the panel is held on with clips and can be released using plastic pry tool around door panel edges.

SOURCE: Oil pan removal on a 97 jeep wrangler

Instructions can be found in any basic manual but the simple version is to remove anything obvious that will be in your way (starter, trans lines etc). Disconnect both engine mounts and raise engine to get better clearance (watch stuff on top so you don't break anything) I usually stuff a couple of 2x4 wood blocks between engine & mounts to support it. Remove all pan bolts and take it down (remember pump pickup will interfere) Do what you need to do, then reverse process.

The check gauges light is normal because at 400 rpm it isn't running fast enough to build sufficient oil pressure. I am guessing maybe a vaccum leak???

2008 jeep wrangler hood problem


I just bought a 2008 jeep wrangler and my hood is lifting 2 to 3 inches off the frame when I'm driving on the highway in wind speeds over 15 to 20 mph. I've owned two jeep wranglers in the past and I've never had this problem but chrysler keeps telling me this is normal. What's normal about a hood that is lifting off the frame?

What should the idle speed be set at on a 1989 jeep wrangler 4.2 liter straight 6 cyl. It has a 2bbl carb. It idles at 1000 rpm right now but seems fast or is that about right?


Most carb. engines should idle between 725 and 750 R.P.M., lower the idle and be sure to check the timing. You should have an emissions label under the hood to explain the idle and timing.

Why is my 2005 jeep wrangler overheating while driving highway speeds and cool at an idle. Even after replacing the water pump, the thermostat, and the radiator????


If this vehicle has a clutch type fan it is probably the problem, good at idle but once the rpm's speed up it does not keep up with engine speed, thats why it heats up at highway speed.
Difficult to diagnose because you cant always tell if it is spinning as fast as it is supposed to be.

97 TJ 2.5 WILL NOT GO OVER 60 MPH AND RUNS FINE.


You may need to replace the fuel filter. Have you checked to see if maybe the exhaust system is plugged? To check the exhaust have someone rev the engine while you feel the exhaust coming out of the tail pipe. You should be able to feel quite abit of exhaust from 1 1/2 to 2 feet away when engine is reved to say 3000 rpm. If you can't feel the exhaust then disconnect the exhaust pipe in front of the converter and drive the car. It will be a little bit loud but you will know if the exhaust is plugged or not. If it goes faster than before then it is plugged. Hope this helps.
