Question about Jeep Wrangler

1 Answer

Hello. My '97 jeep wrangler does not have power steering and I would like to install one. Could you please give me information as to what I would need and the steps to install it? I would probably get the gear box, power steering pump & pulley from the boneyard. Your help is greatly appreciated! Thank you!

Personally, if I had a choice I'd install a manual steering box in all my Jeeps. (less chance of leaks) But, yes, getting an entire assembly from a scrapyard is a good idea. Take good notes on how it was assembled on the donor vehicle and just reverse the process to install it. If you can, take some good photos.
Make sure you take all the brackets and bolts as well. All the mounting points on the manifold etc are already pre-drilled so you shouldn't have a problem there. Just make sure to retian all the "o" rings for the hoses and to route them where they won't rub on anything. To bleed the air from the system, fill the pump, start the engine and slowly turn the wheel all the way in one direction, then all the way in the other direction. Shut the engine off for a few minutes and re-fill. Repeat if necessary.

97 jeep wrangler high idle speed, replaced pvc valve and grommet . can I adjust it or is it computer controlled?


It is computer controlled and any attempt to adjust will get you no where. Check the entire engine intake system for vacuum leaks. Use a can of carburetor cleaner and carefully spry it all over the intake and hoses, if you hit a leak the engine idle will change. You can also do this with a bottle of propane gas. DO NOT GET CARB SPARY ON THE CARS PAINT.
