Re: Project "Rock Bottom" rebuild

Ok I'll give it a try...here's an important question though...if the jeep has no power (electric) how in the hell do you lock the liftgate???

If it won't close manually, you can use a jump box.

Re: Project "Rock Bottom" rebuild

This engine possibly just has a dropped valve seat on your cylinder with no compression, just put a new cylinder head on it, no need to replace the motor and you can have it back on the road in one day, dropped valve seats are very common on 3.7 and 4.7 motors.

Only common if it's been overheated bro. If not then the only real thing is dropped rocker arms. Plus with cylinder wall damage in #3 I'd replace it. It's also seized up

Re: Project "Rock Bottom" rebuild

Oh I need to add there wasn't much coolant in the radiator when I took it out...and when I drained the oil again, there was more water in it again just like last time, and this time I know the engine has only ran for maybe a combined total of 4 minutes since the last oil change 2 weeks ago....so to me it seems the water is just seeping into the oil...

What do you think?

Head gasket likely or cracked block (rare on these) or has been overheated and warped the heads

Re: Project "Rock Bottom" rebuild

Yeah but that's quite a bit of water for only running maybe 4 minutes I almost doubt it was that long

Re: Project "Rock Bottom" rebuild

No what I got out of the lower radiator tube and the radiator itself looked like normal coolant...

Still could have a cracked block. It's definitely worth pulling the motor and tearing it down. I'm curious on how it looks

Re: Project "Rock Bottom" rebuild

Well Jeff I've been putting 30 min already in trying your method...with no luck...I'm about to get violent with it...in which point it may not survive...lol

Going to check on how much a replacement is first lol

---------- Post added at 03:36 PM ---------- Previous post was at 03:10 PM ----------

Well I got super rough with the intake and finally it came out..

But something to note, when I got it free I heard water sloshing around in it...so I poured it out into a bucket and into a bottle so you could see how much water was in it...


So my thoughts right now is this thing has been into some water wether it be flood water or someone ran it into the river I don't know...we will see what all comes out later...

Also another note anytime I jack the jeep up water comes out of the muffler...don't know if that's related...but it's something I observed...

---------- Post added at 03:40 PM ---------- Previous post was at 03:36 PM ----------

Yup that's a 32oz bottle btw...
