2000 Jeep Wrangler Problems

Dusty Conditions May Cause the Rear Main Oil Seal to Leak

Some models are susceptible to rear main oil seal failures in dirty or dusty conditions. As dirt and dust collect on the oil seal, the abrasion wears through the sealing surface. A spacer is used between the bell housing and engine that has a small slot in the 12 o'clock position. Filling this slot with RTV silicone and cleaning the seal area can help prevent damage to the seal.

Throttle Position Sensor May Fail

The throttle position sensor (TPS) may fail causing intermittent drivability problems like hard starting, stalling, and/or hesitation when accelerating. A failed TPS will require replacement, proper diagnoses should always be performed before replacing any parts.

2000 Jeep Wrangler Reviews

i have a 2000 jeep wrangler sahara with 53k miles on it and i love it. car is very reliable and it can get you through anything. only downside is the MPG which is around 15
I bought it as a handy (short) tow vehicle for my motorhome. Now I'm hooked! I've beaten the crap out it and it begs for more! Fun to drive and great on the Az off road. My only complaint is the fortune Ive spent outfitting it for the outback.
