Bring it by the shop and we'll reset the light. P0442 is an evap code which makes sense since you had to tighten the fuel cap.
You may have to lift and support the engine several inches to clear the cross member. Most of these types of jobs take 5 hours with lifts and screw jacks. Good luck.
+1 for superbob! You need more info. When we pulla code from the computer we can follow a very specific decision tree and rule out of pinpoint the problem. If you have a bad clutch band it is in transmission and warrant a new/remanufactured unit.
3-5K for conventional oil. Up to 8K for premium synthetics. Pull the dipstick and if th eoil is darker then a good Amber Ale then it's time. The dirt on the oil gradually destroys the bearings. Happy Holidays.
Have a certified shop look at your Jeep. Soulds like you need several items looked at...Happy Holidays.
If the belt has NEVER been changed then worry! 105K miles is the recommended replacement schedule. If the timing belt lets go you will ruin the engine. Have your waterpump and belts replaced at the same time. These cars run really well when maintained. Don't let money be the reason you have deferred the maintenance because the cost of doing nothing will be 5X worse.
This is a very simpe replacement item you can do your self. Look at the engine compartment and you can see the small arm by the passenger strut tower. The part is ony $55.00 and can be replaced with common hand tools. There is no tension on this part when the engine is not running, just remove and replace. You just saved yourself $150.00. Why did the shop who did the belt not replace it?
Just water pump and installation is $900.00 with almost 4 hours of labor. You should replace your belt as well since it's already off the vehicle. What do your hoses look like? I know it's expensive but without the repair you have a paperweight. Good luck and happy holidays.
Bring it by and we'll pull the code at NO charge and go from there. Happy holidays.
This motor had noids which fail as well. What doe the pressure do when your cranking it. Can you get the motor to fire by spraying carb cleaner into the throttlebody> Be careful with this! Good luck and happy holidays.
