Hey, Thank you very much for the Ph No and the advice. I figured it wasn't the trans going bad. That usually is accompanied by some whining noises and leaks or an overheat or dry pan. But, this was a very likely candidate for a ground wire going bad. That makes the most sense I have heard yet.. Now - If I can just find that %$@! Pesky ground wire. Haha
I have her scheduled for Tuesday at two O' Clock to go to the Goodwin Brothers Jeep Dealership for a Diagnostic. It's 60 bucks for them to look it over, but, with that in mind and a little help from my friends here (thanks again) I might be able to convince them of my suspicions and get out cheap.
.I am trying to get her ready for the used car market and I dont want to sell a clean ride like this with such a terrible problem. It's been a wonderful little wagon fer sure and I havent really had any major problems out of it at all. Just little minor things over the years. Like injector seals and alternator and shocks, hoses, etc. It's a great second car or a first time car for a student or something ya know. I have had at least two dozen people ready to fork over a thousand bucks cash for her and I wont sell it in this condition. But, I am determined to get this ironed out this week. One way or another. And I thank you and this forum for the new weapon against demonic possession of mechanical devices. And greedy grease monkeys. :Roll:
Nah. My wife doesn't do much "Jeepin" 'cept back n forth to the school and the grocery these days. We cruise it out in the country once in a while on 50 milers, but, we don't do off-road much. Especially with a two-wheel drive Cherokee. (I took it out in a cow pasture once to herd horses with it - does that count? HAHA) it was great all through the winters though. The ground clearance and light weight made it glide through snow like it was made to do exactly that. But, now that we have the baby and my family has grown to "FOUR" sons. We gotta get a mini van. HAHAHA I won't ever forget the Jeep though. It's been fun. My Dad's Wrangler. NOW "THAT" is a cool Jeep ! He takes it up dry creek beds and sometimes through mud holes big enough to swallow semi's ! I watched him yank a friend's sunken 17' Glasstron Tri-Hull (Full of water) with an inboard 4 cyl Chrysler out of a lake back in '96 (The guy hit the dock and sunk his boat) . That Jeep was "SCREAMIN" jack. Boat was trashed and Dad's Jeep made the newspapers. Is funny too because they was all drunk and everybody just thought they was a bunch of crazy rednecks. HAHHAAHAA
