2004 Jeep Wrangler Problems

Front and Rear Differential Pinion Seal and Transfer Case Leaks

Leaks at the front and/or rear differential pinion seal and from the transfer case are common. Leakage from the transfer case normally occurs at the case-mating surfaces and require removal of the transfer case to reseal.

Water May Leak From A-pillar on Side Doors

Water can leak near the A-pillar, at the front edge of the driver and passenger side doors. An improved seal is available.

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.

I have a 2004 jeep wrangler 4 cyl,.5 speed. It just shut off,.everything seems to be O.K. but there is NO fire going to the plugs. Please advise,.Thanks, Ben
2nd best Jeep I have ever owned. The best was my '86 CJ-7. I drove it forever. It had nearly 300,000 on it before loosing compression to the point that I could no longer get up to highway speed with it. Traded it in on an 04 Wrangler. Re-geared it to 4.56, ox lockers front and rear, 4.5" Rubikon lift, slip yoke eliminator with a rear cv shaft and I can go anywhere my 33's will take me.
