    Guess my luck ran out this time. No matter what I tried, the code came back almost immediately. Looks like I just got a bad part. I like O'Reillys... this is the first time one of their parts have failed me. Why oh why couldn't it have been easier to deal with!?

    They’re pretty good with warranties. See if they’ll replace it free of charge.

    Thanks a ton mate. I actually joined the forum to see your write up. I'd watched a few vids, but really this walks you right through it.
    It was a brutal job to do especially because on one hand I dont have a thumb that works.
    Its one of those jobs where you just have to have the right mindset and accept the hidden bolt may take 2 or more hours to get out.
    If you have the auto tranny I highly recommend a stubby ratcheting wrench with the lowest profile and thinnest end ring you can find. Mine was too thick so it wouldn't allow getting between the dipstick and valve, and when it did the body of the valve pushed it too far from the bolt to get an angle on it. and I just used a regular stubby with the offset side toward the bolt. I stopped counting at 400 micro turns, and I couldn't use my fingers to turn it, right until it was out (ie not at all).
    The whole job isnt fun, but today I have an extra $700 bucks in my pocket and that is definitely good. Plus it was a challenge I wanted to give er on, I been hearing about the 3.8 egr nightmare for years and now Im in the club!
    Again, Thanks!

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
