  1. Hey Guys! The cold here in Philadelphia has delayed my work on my 88 Comanche project, 4.0 5speed. I got the slave cylinder put in and the transmission back in about 2 months back and figured why not try to start her up. I bought the truck not running and it hadn't run in 3 years. Well not surprising, didn't start. Cleaned all the ground, and electrical contacts. No dice. Everything having to do with ignition looked brand new, obviously someone had tried to start her before. What the missed? Crank position sensor. Put a new one in and tried to start her up. She lives again!!! Cranked up on 3rd try. She is running rough and over revved to 3000rpm but i am not all surprised. Its been a while since anybody loved her. Probably will need a new IAC. Any other thoughts on the high rpm? My next task is to fix the throttle body. The spring does not release. if i hit the gas it will stay in position. Tried soaking with pb blaster, didn't seem to help. My question is should I rebuild it? How do I rebuild it? does anyone know where to buy a new one. Only ones I have found thus far are not Renix compatible. I would almost rather replace than rebuild but if i cannot find one, that is not an option. Any input would be much appreciated. Thanks in Advance, Ant
  2. I was wondering if anyone had any experience with the the bored renix throttle body from http://www.strokedjeep.com and if so what luck they had and any real benefit? Thanks
  3. Lately I,ve been getting poorer gas mileage (approx. 17-20 mph) and blowing black smoke when I get on the pedal. Is there an adjustment on the TB or could there be other causes? thanks
  4. Hey guys so as some of you have checked out my build thread, I have an '06 engine of a TJ on my MJ, and the PO either did not want to struggle with adapting and finding stuff for keeping the HO intake manifold, or (what I think happened) he probably bought a wrecked/salvaged TJ and the original manifold was probably cracked so he just installed the old renix on it to get it running. Anyways, I already got me a new set of Headers, and the HO intake manifold and of-course bolted right on, but the only doubt I have is that on the old Renix fuel rails it had what I think is a Fuel Pressure Regulator, and a Return Line? Anyways when I got the new fuel rail and Injectors ( :brows: score! for $19.00) at the JY it only has one port, or entry instead of two, as the old Renix fuel rails do. So Basically my question is, do both fuel lines that come from the gas tank spit out fuel? if that was the case could I just cancel out one? or What should I do? Anyways those are my doubts, any Help is Greatly Appreciated! PS: I know I've been slacking a lot on wrenching on my truck and posting on my thread so please forgive me and give me $#!& about it so I can get back at it my friends here haven't stopped but Ill take any sort of motivation over no motivation at all! haha Oh and don't feel bad for talking smack! hahaha :yes:
  5. Hey guys!, So I have a slight problem with my truck, the other day i was leaving school and got in my comanche ready to head home when i turned the key and (insert sound of 4.0 liter trying to start but not quite getting there here.) and i said to myself no problem, i have been having some throttle body issues so some starting fluid should do the trick, and just like any owner of a 20+ year old truck should have in their emergency kit, i had some. so i popped the hood and sprayed some in and tried to firer her up again. it still did not start but this time was really close. It had never not started after a little starting fluid so i was a little concerned, but i tried for another 10 minutes at it or so, it still didn't start. At this point having no tools i needed to call in back up, so i called a family member and told him to bring the tools. When he got to the truck we went through all the basic stuff (plugs, electrical lines, throttle body sensors) but came up empty handed, and then my cousin said to me "can you hear the fuel pump come on when you turn the key?" and sure enough when i turned the key i didn't hear anything. So naturally at this point we concluded that it was a fuel pump and i would have to change it in the school parking lot the following week. Later that weekend my dad and i went out to the truck and he told me to try and start it, it started right up and i was able to drive it home. Has this happened to anyone else or am i just the weird one out. In these situations i would have rather it had not started in the parking lot with my dad because at least then you know what you are dealing with. Now there are a lot of unknown variables, and i don't want this to happen again. Thanks, Peter
