New member from England

Hello fellow jeep owners.

I'm Peter Essling I have a 99 WJ 4.7 limited, had it just over a year and has 110k. Its my daily car and i have a TVR cerbera as my fun car and weekend car. I'm a train engineer and love anything car related.

I have been servicing my wj today, will continue tomorrow as i ran out of light.

I'm doing all the oils on this service, and have been able to do engine oil and filter, front diff and gearbox today and will do transfer case and rear diff tomorrow.

Was a little concerned that i found mayo in the oil filler neck, although could be early signs of HGF the cap wasn't on properly so maybe kidding myself that it could be that it has drawn in some moisture which has mixed with some oil Coolant looks and smells fine, the oil that come out was fine and haven't used any oil or lost any coolant and has never overheated with the temp gauge sitting where is should.

Any way heres my jeep on my hydraulic ramps, and my cerbera below.

Re: New member from England

Well after the worry of the mayo bit of research shows that it's a known issue with early WJ's and a new filler neck was introduced. So happy days. Finished the service off today transfer box must be the easiest item to do on the oil service. Couldn't get the rear diff's cover off so topped up with fresh oil and will get some thinner tube to suck the oil out and renew all the oil

Thank you for the warm welcome. :-)

Re: New member from England

All very true, that's what originally got my attention about them. You see other cars out there so much that it's the norm. But it's a different story when you see a TVR
