Repair manual packed up just need to make sure I am taking the starter out correctly in my 1989 Jeep wrangler...there should be 2 bolts--correct? It appears that these bolts need a torque wrench...does that sound correct?

You don''t need a torque wrench to take out bolts. When all bolts are removed, the starter should be free. You may have twist and turn it a little to get it clear of the flywheel.

How to install a starter in a 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee limited?

This is a pretty easy job if you have the correct tools.

1. disconnect the battery
2. remove the power connector from the starter
3. remove two bolts holding the starter on (they bolt into the bellhousing)
4. remove starter
5. replace starter.
6. install two bolts
7. reinstall wire harness
8. reconnect battery.
It is not a bad job at all...just make sure you have a tool set. The hardest part for me was that the bolts were really tight so you may need a 1/2" dr ratchet. Also, before you reinstall the bolts, make sure you clean them and use locktight so they don't vibrate loose

Lights dim and engine shuts off

Take your alternator out and take it to a local auto parts store and have them test to make sure that it is working correctly. The second issue would be that you need a better ground wire going from the battery to the engine block.

1989 jeep wrangler starts jumping and backfiring

Start with the basics...meaning check the spark plug wires and spark plugs. While under the hood, inspect all hoses for a vacuum leak(s). Then turn the ignition key on-off-on-off- on...leave in the on position and write down the number of flashes the check engine light indicates....2 flashes = #2....pause.....3 flashes = #3.
Let start from here. Are you able to perform engine repairs or diagnostics???

I have a 1989 Jeep Wrangler 4X4 standard can I make it into an Automatic?

Yes you can. You would have to get the correct tranny for it and all the linkage to the tranny and the floor shifter. You should just keep the manual tranny. It will serve you better and for more miles than an automatic. The cost to switch to an auto would not be worth the price. Most people would rather have a manual in a jeep if they use it for it's intended purpose.

How to Change Rear Axle Seal?

When you take the rear drum off, look where the axle goes in and if there are 4 bolts around it, you don't have to go into the diff. If there are no bolts holding the axle in, then get a repair manual to guide you through the steps. The seal on an axle that is bolted in place will have a collar that needs to be pressed off and a new one back on. These seals can be bought at a local partsd house.
