    Re: Help with part time 4WD

    Thanks for the advice. I give all the suggestions a try over the weekend.

    I would still like to get hold of the section of the manual that tells you all about it.

    I very seldom move the 4WD selector lever. Today I did, because I needed it in neutral whilst working on the rear brakes.
    It did not move easily but now the light on the dash is lit up and I seem to...

    Things have taken a turn for the worse. After my last post things went back to normal so all was good. The other day I pressed the trip reset button and it stuck partly reset. I pressed it a few more...

    Re: Speedo has gone erratic

    Thanks again for the suggestions. As the weekend is coming I'll get the screwdrivers out. If I need a replacement head has anyone got one they would part with (for a small fee)?

    Thank you for the suggestions. I looked at gears on the net and there seem to be dozens to choose from. Why are there so many?

    On my 1994 XJ RHD my speedo has sometimes started jumping up to 80kmh irrespective of what speed I am doing. (It came with KM/H rather than MPH). Sometimes it is fine.

    Re: Cherokee 1994 XJ Front Axle question

    Hello again,
    Since last time I have been through everything I can think of. There is no play in any ball joints or UJ. I have fitted two new front tyres because in Spain both tyres on each axle must...

    Re: Cherokee 1994 XJ Front Axle question

    Hello again. This is not a reply but more of an extension to the original. But it is still a noise.

    Re: 4.0l XJ starting problem

    I have just got one more thing to add.

    The 'O' ring I fitted came from a plumbers kit so I was not certain if the material was compatible with fuel.
    I have now replaced it with a Nitrile one and...

    Re: 4.0l XJ starting problem

    The sun came out today so I had a go at the problem and I have found the probable cause without even going underneath. I thought I would start under the bonnet (hood).

    Re: 4.0l XJ starting problem

    Hello,
    When I do the key thing it starts quickly, every time after a short crank, even on a cold morning. Sometimes when I don't do the key trick it starts instantly, like it used to.
    It runs like...

    Hello again,
    It's been a long time since I started this and I have finally managed to put a check valve in the pipe just after the tank. I was hoping that would cure the dramatic loss in fuel...

    Re: 1994 XJ steering knuckle ball joints

    Thanks for the advice so far. Having had a closer look at what is on the car it seems that I have one greasable ball joint and one that can't be regreased. I have attached a pic of the knuckle and...
