Glad to be a member and look forward to learning from the community. Purchased a '93 YJ. Body is solid. Been out trail riding and have had a bit of summer enjoyment. This winter I will be installing new seals on the front diff, transfer case, oil pan, main, and valve cover. Also needs some small stuff like a new water pump and ball joints. Might put in new synchros. Good winter projects.

I am new to this forum, just recently found it while trying to nail down a no spark/no start problem with my renix system. I have owned this low-mileage/rust-free 1990 Wrangler YJ w/2.5 TBI since 2006. Except for the '06 stock wheels this YJ is all stock, no lifts or mods. I find it easier to work on something that resembles the shop manuals. Do all my own work. This vehicle has brought me into the late 20th century, learning to use my multi-meter to track down problems in the engine bay. My first car, age 18, was a '55 Willys station wagon, inline 6 with overdrive. Great car for a young longhair in the '60s. Next up was a similar 1953 model.

After that it was a series of British sports cars, all 4-bangers except the TR6. Learned to rebuild engines on these cars. Currently keeping a '68 MGB on the road as my daily driver. The YJ is my tractor, working around my property doing fire abatement and other chores. Generally runs well and is reliable, handy in the snow here at 6000 ft in the San Jacinto Mtns. of SoCal. Nice to know there is a group appreciates the four cylinder engine.

Welcome.  You should be a master at electronics after working on British cars!  Wink

Hello there.  It's nice to find a forum where the members first reply to a 4 cylinder question with"get ride of it".  My driveway has two Jeep Wranglers in it.  A 2008 jk unlimited with a 5.3l motech conversion done back in December 2011 and has over 100,000 miles on the LS, and over 204,000 miles total.  My other Jeep is a 89 wrangler with 230,000 miles on it.  Just this last month i finally did my induction system up grade with a Clifford 4bbl intake (to forever to get one) and a brand new Fitech 2 barrel system.  It runs on 32" bfg AT km2 with weld racing prostar XP's,. Willlwood disc brakes, 4.56 gears with a Detroit in the rear and trutrack in front.  When I figure out how, I'll post some pictures of the engine

Stock 89’ wrangler ~ 4 banger ~


« Reply #1580 on: October 20, 2018, 10:17:39 PM »

Hello all  my name is Joshua. Sorry about the late introduction, been busy here in Maine. Came across this site searching for info on the ‘89 wrangler 2.5 I just acquired for doing some work for my brother in law. I never thought I would own one but it has sure grown on me. Probably will only be a yard vehicle/woods work vehicle for now.My background has been mostly chevy’s Honda’s and bmw’s. I prefer to do my own work. Im happiest behind a wheel a wrench or a chainsaw. Been into anything motorized as long as I can remember.  I hope to learn and grow with everyone and maybe lend some info of my own along the road. Keep em dirty!  smokes

Congrats!  I'm sure the Jeep will have you wrenching for a while.  There's always something to do on them.
