Replacing the ecu will be a LOT cheaper and easier than replacing an entire engine, also, what d o you mean by derv?

Is it possible to fit a manual gear box to an automatic 1996 2.6 petrol holden rodeo?

You should be good as long as you replace the flywheel on the automatic engine with the one from the manual. You may also have to replace some sensors once you get it up and running because a manual will drive different that the auto and your pollution control will likely act up by turning on codes.

I want to put the motor from a 97 or 98 grand cherokee into a 94 the has a piston issue can this be done please say yes

If you mean the monster 4 litre petrol engine then yes because i have changed one as they are all the same block but you will ahve to sort the later to earlier ignition system but not a problem but use the parts off the old one,fitted a diesel into one as well for a car dealer as the petrol ones here are worthless pieces of junk,but a diesel with a manual box ?? around 5000 euros but a petrol with no LPG gas conversion even in good condition you might be lucky to get 500 euros ,scrap man will give you 50/100 euros .Highest value vehicles here when old are merc diesels or a peugeot /citreon/renault diesel cars ,petrol you cannot give them away least off all a 4litre gas guzzler with a auto box

My 96 grand cherokee 4.0L cut out at the traffic lights and wont start, not even turning over.Dash lights all there, battery is up.Not even a click from starter.anyone any ideas?

OK do the head lights go out then you try to start the engine if yes then its the battery term on battery hot if so dirty fitting (wash with Hot water and spray and refit tight and recheck the lights and starting..
IF auto gearbox then check the Park switch on box it has 3 wires on the side of box.(Under car)
CHECK the Poss + wire on the battery and also the Black earth wire to engine (is it broken off engine as there is also a thin earth wire for battery term to body so the lights will work but the starter takes out a lot of amps and if earth lead isent on engine then it wont turn over.
Check the small wire to the starter motor solinoid as well as a lot are push on terms and have come off if not a tight fit.
So check out all above,,, and let me know how you get on Ron
