    New ZJ in the family

    I've recently been asking a few questions about a 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee! Things went the way I had hoped and I am now the proud owner of one. Here are a couple of pictures.

Power everything. Has some quirk's but nothing too expensive.

    Did some tune up work today. Changed plugs, wires, cap, rotor, oil change, air filter. Did some more cleaning in the engine bay. Plus I cleaned some of the carpeting on the inside. IMG_20180328_121736.jpgIMG_20180328_131010.jpg

    Going to try and diagnose a stalling issue. Only happens after revving at idle. Going to try the IAC TPS and MAP sensors and see if that solves my problem.

    Nice find!! ZJs are some of the most out of the box capable, non wrangler Jeeps out there. I've lusted after a 5.9 for years. Just never found a cheap enough one in good enough condition.

    Not quite a 5.9. 5.2 which at some point I'm probably going to have to worry about head gaskets 🙄.

    Still some rough low idle. Gonna check the spark plugs. If they're only then I know the plenum gasket is bad. Also going to replace the IAC and the pcv valves.

    I had the same problem with my 1996 ZJ, it was the idle position sensor, 5 minute swap and I had no more problems. I actully swappy the idle position sensor and I think it was the throttle body sensor.. I bought my ZJ brand new and had her for 14 years, I put around 327k miles on her. the only thing that want bad besides the sensors mentioned was the temp sensor.

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.
