Re: Need better fuel economy

My 04 Overland with 4.7 HO only gets about 11 mpg when I only drive it to work, which is about 10 minutes. Hardly gets warmed up, and a cold engine uses more fuel. Just driving it a little bit...

Try cleaning the Throttle body. The idle air control(IAC) could be sticking and not reacting fast enough to keep the idle up.

You can get some throttle plate cleaner at the auto parts. I...

Re: Can anyone tell me how to replace vacuum line on 2000 WJ Grand Cherokee

Re: Can a different year engine be used for a 99 limited?

I did run into a 4.7 year issue a while back. It had to do with the crankshaft sensor reluctor wheel on the crankshaft being different.

The salvage yard should be able to tell you what will fit,...

Re: 4.7 crank replacement am i crazy ? Lol

Not sure if it could be done in the vehicle, I doubt it, but why would you even want to try it?

Re: Two issues with the first 30 seconds

Before you start it, open the hood and if possible have someone else start it while you see if a ton of air is being blown by the cooling fan. You can even hold the idle up by hand at the throttle...
