Second that. Thanks to everybody for their detailed descriptions. Very helpful thread.This is why I enjoy this forum. I would have taken it to the dealer thinking it was broken. I mean I was really cranking on it yesterday. I hope the linkage is heavy duty. I'll try it later today.
I was a noob 3 years ago…… and I still don’t know anything compared to most on this board. We all gotta start somewhere….. virtually everyone on this board takes the time to answer everyone’s questions - no matter how “basic”….. keep asking….Well, shit.
Tried the Neutral, (very) slow roll t-case shift.
Shifted like butter. That's embarrassing for me.
Thanks for all the tips.
For number 3, the Wrangler 3.0L owner's manual specifies idle time based on how it is driven before shutdown - but there is no official idling guideline before shutdown for the 2.0L. But there is no harm in either driving gently for a minute or so before shutting down or idle for 30 seconds after hard driving (high load) or when towing.2.0, Auto
1) Oil pressure. This is the first vehicle I've had where I can see real-time oil pressure. It runs 19 most of the time, but sometimes climbs to 40+. Is that normal?
2) Trying to shift through 2H, 4H and 4L. Is there trick? My dealer said it takes some muscle, but damn. I was never able to get it in 4L. And had a hell of time just getting it back in 2H.
I thought I was going to bend something or break it.
3) Cool down. With the turbo, is it advisable to idle for a bit before shutdown after a long drive?
Remember the twin turbo Cats?The heavy trucks I have worked on saw higher turbo bearing failures when not idled before shut down.
I actually never got to work on a twin turbo Cat engine. Mostly I worked on Detroits, Cummins, and some Paccar and Maxxforce.Remember the twin turbo Cats?
The downstream damage was nothing short of amazing, and expensive, when the the intake side of the primary turbo let go. It was more common that the entire intake system, including the head, needed replacing and/or rebuilding. About $30k worth of damage if you had it fixed at a Cat dealer.
