Question about 1985 Jeep Cherokee

3 Answers

When standing in front of the engine I can see the carb base bolt on the right but cannot see the other bolt(s) that are holding it down. The Jeep is a 1985 jeep Cherokee 4 wheel drive, 2.5 L 4 cylinder engine. I need to take the carb off to tighten it up. I touched it and the RPM went up and down because the carb is loose.

You have no choice but to start disassembly until you get to the poin where the bolts (actually nuts) can be accessed. Also don't waste your time. Byuy a new Fel-Pro carb base gasket. Don't try to re-use the old one...

Idle goes up and down meaning you have a vacuum leak possibly. make sure your return spring is connected to your throttle link and that there is tension.

How to change crankshaft sensor jeep YJ


Raise the front of your Jeep with a jack and position a set of jack stands under the front axle to support it. Lower the jack, allowing the Jeep to rest solidly on the jack stands.

  • 2 Locate the crank position sensor in the bell housing of the Jeep from under the driver's side. Locate and remove the two retaining bolts that secure the sensor to the bell housing, using a socket and ratchet.
  • 3 Follow the wire from the sensor to the connector on the engine. Release the lock on the connector and separate the sensor wiring harness from the engine wiring harness. Remove the sensor and harness from the Jeep and discard it.
  • 4 Position the new sensor on the bell housing and install the two retaining bolts. Tighten the bolts with a socket and ratchet until they are snug. Do not over-tighten these bolts or you will strip the threads out of the aluminum bell housing.
  • 5 Route the wiring harness from the sensor to the engine wiring harness and push the two connectors together until the locking tab snaps in place. Be sure to route the wiring harness away from sharp edges or heat sources.
  • 6 Raise the front of the Jeep off the jack stands with a jack then remove the stands from under the truck. Lower the jack and test the repair by starting the truck and verifying that it runs properly.

    Describe how to change transmission fluid and filter in 1996 jeep grand cherokee straight 6


    Assume since you say filter it is automatic.

    Before starting the job obtain the fluid and filter for your vehicle. The parts store can provide you the right kind and amount of fluid based on Make Year Model. Also obtain new gasket.

    Transmission must be cool.
    Raise vehicle on jack stands.
    Locate the fluid pan. Remove the side and front bolts.
    Place a drain pan under the transmission capable of holding 8 quarts (two gallons).
    Loosen the rear pan mounting bolts. Fluid should start to drain around the pan at the front. If not the pan is stuck. Pry it gently at the front with a flexible putty knife.
    Once fluid is draining you can eventually take the rear bolts all the way out and pour off the balance of fluid.

    Clean the gasket mounting surface on the transmission.

    Clean the fluid pan completely.

    Remove the old filter. It will be held with screws (bolts).

    Install new filter.

    Assure surfaces are still clean. Put new gasket in place, and install pan, tightening the bolts (screws) gradually until correct torque for your transmission is reached.

    Take car off jack stands.

    Add the correct amount of fluid for your vehicle through the filler tube. (Parts store can look this up when you are there).

    Start with engine in park. Maintain idle, don't race engine.
    Shift to each range setting, and then back to neutral.

    Watch for leaks - if occur will need to repeat the procedure but the filter can be left in place.

    Where are the spark plugs located


    Standing at the front of the Jeep looking at the engine, they are on the left side at the base of the valve cover. There is a black plastic "bar" across the top of them that is actually the ignition coil packs. Remove the bolts holding the coil packs on and carefully remove them - they are molded together so they'll all come off at the same time. You may or may not have to unplug the wiring harness.

    Engine is idleing to high what could be the problem?


    get a can of spray carb cleaner from the parts store, spay the base of the intake upper runners with the carb spray, when u hit the a leak you will hear the engine change sound, the leak is in most cases about midway down the length of the upper intake where it bolts to the lower intake, it takes a special tool to reach the bolts that hold it on to replace the base gasket..

    Weber carb vacuum lines


    Hookups vary from carb to carb. there are two kinds of vacuum: full signal at all times from the manifold or carb base, and delayed: vacuum that only is present with the throttle either closed or open (depending upon way the carb is internally ported.) I'm fairly certain that vacuum to the t case is full signal. vacuum to the advance is an either or thing. Some engines "like" full vacuum there, others don't. It's easy to tell though...if the engine wants to "lay down" when taking off from a standstill with advance attached one way, attach the other way and see if it makes a difference. Also you can check MPG in different positions and decide what works best if no "off the line" difference is observed. Make sure that the advance diaphragm is good or nothing will work correctly either way.

    My 1983 S-10 has a rochester 2SE mounted to a 2.0 4 cyl. that shakes (moves) when touched what is the fix?


    If you mean that the carb moves when you touch it then it needs to be tightened. There are 4 bolts holding it down. At the rear of the carb there should be 2 nuts near the bottom base plat and the front should have 2 bolts going down through the whole carb. I forget the exact size but I think they are 1/2 inch. Hope this helps.

    Replacing front shocks


    Jack up the front end and place on jack stands. Place jack stands on the frame behind the front wheels. Ensure stands are not in a place where they will slip and make sure vehicle is on an even surface as you do not want the vehicle to fall off of the stands, especially while you are under it. Remove tires once vehicle has been placed on the stands. Remove the top and bottom bolts from the long tubular shock. Then remove the bolts holding the coil shocks on. Because when doing this as there may be tension in the coil springs still. Replace the shocks and reinstall the bolts. This job is fairly simple but can be intimidating if you have never done it before. You will be amazed at how easy it actually is once you have done it. Just be sure to remember how everything came apart and you will be able to get everything back together just fine. You can use the jack to adjust the axle up or down to make getting the shocks out easier.
