  1. 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee Blend Door Alignment issue

    Trouble Shooting/Problems/Service
    Don't even get me started on those blend doors. Mine broke (and rebroke) so many times I have removed the passenger side actuator completely, and now i duct tape that gear to full heat in winter and full cold in summer. The problem as mentioned above is multifaceted. First, those inner gears...
  2. Removing valve cover

    Trouble Shooting/Problems/Service
    It runs! Quietly! Putting it together was a pain but not nearly as hard as taking it apart. I will say the upper intake isn't held in by quite as many bolts and the engine wiring is a few zip ties short but for the most part I could care less. It runs again! Next project: spark plugs on the...
  3. Removing valve cover

    Trouble Shooting/Problems/Service
    As predicted, I have been unable to reinsert that one 15mm bolt about halfway down the trans filler tube. I've been trying for an hour and give up for tonight. Basically I've got to stick my arm way down the firewall and even then the bolt is at my fingertips barely reaching the hole. I keep...
  4. Removing valve cover

    Trouble Shooting/Problems/Service
    Ok here's an update and a tip. In order to find my loose rocker I had to remove the spark plugs and (with 27mm socket) crank the engine by hand. That was pretty cool to see what the valvetrain does. At any given time most of the rockers are pinned down somewhat so it took some rotating and...

  6. Removing valve cover

    Trouble Shooting/Problems/Service
    SUCCESS!!! Wow that was over 10 hours of work spanning more than a month. That last bolt was a pain. You can see it from below but not access it. Conversely you can access it (barely) from above but not see it. 15mm I used a ratchet box wrench
  7. Removing valve cover

    Trouble Shooting/Problems/Service
    Wk2driver - thanks for the diagrams!!! I went back to it before seeing your post today, and realized I also needed to loosen the plenum bracket that was more or less under the throttle-body. Another hard to access 13mm bolt. Basically, I've found the valve cover can't lift straight up: it...
  8. Removing valve cover

    Trouble Shooting/Problems/Service
    Wtf this cover isn't coming off, something near the firewall is blocking it.
  9. Removing valve cover

    Trouble Shooting/Problems/Service
    Update with pics. Sidenote: none of the youtube videos showing rocker arm replacement depict just how difficult it is to access the valvetrain, with many hard to reach areas where things need to be disassembled. This came out fine thankfully but the bolts don't seem to come all the way out so...
  10. Removing valve cover

    Trouble Shooting/Problems/Service
    This tool was my last hope for that clamp aside from a Dremel
  11. Removing valve cover

    Trouble Shooting/Problems/Service
    This is going very slowly. Success: got the hose off the pcv valve despite the clamp release facing firewall! Used a cable driven pliers. Failure: could only remove upper t25 bolts from the pcv valve. The lower is blocked it by a wire harness. I cut the zip ties holding the harness to the...
  12. Removing valve cover

    Trouble Shooting/Problems/Service
    I realize this thread is more of a journal then a discussion but it is helping me keep my head straight. I'm going to keep at this engine... Right now my problem is the hose clamp for the pcv valve (which needs to be removed because the hose is blocking the t25 bolts holding that part in)...
  13. Removing valve cover

    Trouble Shooting/Problems/Service
    Right so now I understand the piece that needs to come off is the PCV valve and wow is it tight back there. This video does a great job of showing the part removal. At 135k I should be putting a new one on if I manage to get this out. Related matter: do the spark plugs need to come out...
  14. Blaster on a valvetrain cover bolt

    Trouble Shooting/Problems/Service
    One of the bolts on my valve-train cover is rotting away. Any reason I shouldn't use a PB Blaster soak on it? Thanks.
  15. Removing valve cover

    Trouble Shooting/Problems/Service
    STUCK. PLEASE HELP. One of the videos I am basing my repair on is However I can't seem to access the bolts holding in the part he removes in the first 2 minutes of the video. I can feel them but not see them, seems next to impossible to get a wrench in there. In the vid he's doing a charger...
  16. Removing valve cover

    Trouble Shooting/Problems/Service
    Got the upper intake off. This was a nightmare. The 13mm bolt holding the bracket that the stud goes through on the driver side closest the firewall was very difficult to access. There's another bracket hanging off the bolt sandwiching in the nut you need to loosen, plus it's down below a...
  17. Removing valve cover

    Trouble Shooting/Problems/Service
    Wow. Found a video of a guy taking off the intake blindfolded. That is my next step but with eyesight.
  18. Removing valve cover

    Trouble Shooting/Problems/Service
    Now I've taken the throttle body off... But it looks like that whole plastic intake has to come off to get down to that corner bolt. It looks like a few bolts going down and a few nuts horizontal. Man I wish someone made a YouTube video of this repair on the WK2. Im not so good with...
  19. Removing valve cover

    Trouble Shooting/Problems/Service
    I've gotten a little farther now, all electrical is disconnected. It seems like that throttle body is going to have to come off to access the rear corner bolt and also to access where that wire conduit is attached to the valve cover. Is there a way to remove those plastic push-connectors that...
  20. Dangerous brake booster

    Trouble Shooting/Problems/Service
    OP here. Took it to the dealer who put a booster in under warranty (didn't notice a vacuum leak but did see corrosion). This is the third time that has been done by a dealer! They also quoted $400 to have a new master cylinder put in but I declined, as they said it would be the same price for...
