2007 Jeep Wrangler Problems
Water can leak near the A-pillar, at the front edge of the driver and passenger side doors. An improved seal is available.
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.
Loose or worn suspension and steering components can cause a wobble or shaking in the steering wheel. It may happen at a certain speed and subside as the vehicle accelerates through the range. Tire balance can contribute to this as well.
2007 Jeep Wrangler Questions
I went to autoparts store today to buy new sensor and they gave me different colored plug, is 1st sensor on exhaust 1/1 or 1/2, seen a few different diagrams and i'm confused.
Severe engine knocking noise.
The mitchell labor guide show 4.5 hours to replace the Chutch Pressure Plate, an additional .2 for the pilot bearing and .3 to remove the flywheel for resurfacing.
$103-$131 makes no sense given what's involved. I look forward to your explaination

Found out that our 2007 Wrangler Unlimited with 45,000 spun a bearing. Dealer wanted $6,500 to replace the motor. Dealer said they wanted to help me out but Chrysler needed more oil change receipts.
