89 Cherokee Rear Main Seal Replacment
1989 Jeep Cherokee Pioneer 6cyl 4.0 4X4 Link to the Tutorial I used: http://youtu.be/f5o5sZbCEsw When I got the jeep the previous owner said there might have been an oil leak from the rear main seal or oil pan. I didn't notice anything but I was doing a good part of a full engine rebuild and I know how prone these are to failing so I figured I'd give it a whack. A lot of whacks to be precise. For removal, you're going to want a dedicated punch, a nice hammer, and the strength to not want to set it all on fire afterwards. I also used a pick and slid that between the seal and the block to try and break some of the seal loose. It seemed to work. Just keep hitting it, It moves eventually, just depends on how long you stay at it. Take frequent breaks. When Installing, you want to really soap up the crank area and take it real slow with the seal. If you find that it takes a lot of force then stop and look at where the seal meets the outer edge of the engine. Make sure you don't skin the seal forcing it in too hard. You'll have to start over with a new seal and that isn't fun. Once it slides in most of the way, you can try use the punch to gently knock it in the rest of the way. The bottom half is much easier in comparison. Rtv on the side tabs, then torque it down to 80ft-lbs and add sealant to the chamfered edges as well. The end.

2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee Engine Noise (4.0L) - EricTheCarGuy
Visit me at: http://www.ericthecarguy.com/ This was a strange one, a little more than a week after I put a starter on this engine it comes back with this horrible engine noise and I decided to investigate. I wasn't able to find the source of the noise and later in the day after they took the Jeep back the engine apparently let go for good. My friend then sold it to someone with a salvage yard and I haven't been able to get hold of him to find out what happened to it. I hope I'm able to track down the new owner and find out what the deal was with it and post a video response when I do, till then I'm afraid it's going to remain a mystery. --- Click below and Stay Dirty Visit me at EricTheCarGuy.com http://ericthecarguy.com/ Visit EricTheCarGuy Forum http://www.ericthecarguy.com/forum/default.aspx Visit my Facebook Page: http://www.facebook.com/EricTheCarGuy --- Stay dirty ETCG Due to factors beyond the control of EricTheCarGuy, it cannot guarantee against unauthorized modifications of this information, or improper use of this information.  EricTheCarGuy assumes no liability for property damage or injury incurred as a result of any of the information contained in this video. EricTheCarGuy recommends safe practices when working with power tools, automotive lifts, lifting tools, jack stands, electrical equipment, blunt instruments, chemicals, lubricants, or any other tools or equipment seen or implied in this video.  Due to factors beyond the control of EricTheCarGuy, no information contained in this video shall create any express or implied warranty or guarantee of any particular result.  Any injury, damage or loss that may result from improper use of these tools, equipment, or the information contained in this video is the sole responsibility of the user and not EricTheCarGuy.
