Re: Buying WJ with Quadra-TracII
If you're buying this truck do a few of these things (others feel free to chime in)
First) Cycle the key from complete off, to the on position (just before actually starting the ignition, so that all the dash lights come on) 3 times, this will they display any error codes in the odometer. If all it says is DONE .. the truck is currently in good condition (as far as the ECU knows)
Second) Turn on the truck, listen for a tick. Lifter tick is a common problem in the 4.7L
Third)Inspect the heater/AC unit by using a bunch of different settings. Make sure all the heater/AC settings work as they should, because the blower motor is a common and costly failure.
Other than that, a mechanic can give you a good checkup on it, a quick visual inspection of the underbelly, look for white smoke in the exhaust etc. etc.
And if you get a chance, drive it hard and see how it shifts, it shouldn't slip shifting from gear to gear.
