4.0l engine noise how long will it last?
 
1 Attachment(s)
I picked up an 01 wj 4x4 4.0l 6 cylinder project car for $600 a few weeks ago and it has a slight rod or lifter noise, my question is since the 4.0 is durable do you think i could change the oil and just use it around town for now until it goes out?, i mean it still has good oil pressure and it doesnt have blowby or smoke. I do have a spare 4.0 that i plan to swap in eventually. Thanks:thumbsup:

Without exactly knowing what is wrong, difficult to say. But if you don't want to re-use this engine after the swap, then there is not that much what can go wrong.
This engine seems to be quite strong, so probably will still last a long time. And you can always decide to swap the other engine in sooner if the noise gets too scary.

Most 99+ 4.0s IIRC have wrist pin problems IIRC. Only a matter of time.
