Jeep Comanche Problems
The outer exhaust manifold studs can break and cause exhaust leaks, commonly noted as a ticking type noise. The outer studs, clamps, and nuts will need to be replaced and are now being tightened to a reduced torque value (20 Nm/180 in lbs).
Engine oil leaks from the valve cover gasket, oil pan gasket and timing cover gasket are common.
Ignition wire failures can cause a rough idle or intermittent engine misfire and there might not be a Check Engine light.
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 rubber plug, installed above the starter, is being used in production that prevents the dust entry near the seal and extends the life of the seal. The plug is available from MOPAR and should be installed any time a rear main seal service is performed.
