4.7 starter smoked

So drove to parents today about 50 miles and parked out in front. Sat for 5 hours and went to start nothing. Climbed under and had dad crank and I beat starter and I got magic smoke yay. Now it's time to replace when it's 20* outside dam Chrysler

Re: 4.7 starter smoked

A good begin of the new year is always nice, happy new year.
If its still the first starter, then its not that bad, only not good that it happens when its that cold. Good luck.

Re: 4.7 starter smoked

I am aware of it being possibly 2nd so I will be replacing it with the 3rd.

The rear valve cover gasket leak that I can't seem to seal is a big contributor to this

Re: 4.7 starter smoked

If a new cover seal didnīt help, i would try some rtv on the seal. There is no crack in the cover itself?

Re: 4.7 starter smoked

No. It's a ridiculously stupid design from jeep. There is literally 0 space on the rear passenger head.

Re: 4.7 starter smoked

Maybe there is not much space, but i removed the head covers and installed them with new seals and zero leaks.
