mountain I think doc nick has it right.
if you read my next post you ll see that I think I was mistaken about the fuel in the oil.
I had just started and moved the jeep and I think I was smelling the start up fuel by misytake and thinking it was on the dipstick. I had my head under the hood the whole time
the fuel in exhaust is just at start up too. its gone after I ride a bit.
no, I m never near the red zone as far as temp. by hot I meant up to operating temp. I m not a moron.
when I start it it is rich as my rpm s momentarily shoot up before immediately dropping to normal. that is when I have the fuel smells
I actually was reading my idle rpm wrong as insightful once suggested they are not as low as I thought, and that problem went away anyway after cleaning AIC valve
I think you are way off. the jeep runs great. no miss, great acceleration, no overheating.
I think my evap system may need some TLC and I definitely need to replace some old vacuum hoses.
thanks for your concern but the jeep is not nearly as bad as you seem to think.
I m trying to get it right is all. I need to break down and change the front seal tho. I am leaking more oil than I can live with.
I just changed the oil and tranny fluid and filter about a week ago and there was no fuel in it then.
I think I wasted my time on the tranny fluid as it seemed fine, but I did not know how long it had been.
