New to Wrangler Maintenance

My ex-wife bought my son a 1999 Wrangler w/ a four banger and five speed. The upkeep falls to me of course. I have a few questions in a couple of areas and I am sure I'll have more as problems arise

OK, from a shadetree mechanic's perspective, you'll love it.

I've got a 1993 YJ that I've done all of the work to, except for machining the block and rebuilding the gearbox from the transmission. There are people that know WAAAAAAAYYYYY more than I do on here, but I'll lend whatever knowledge I've got.

And welcome, fellow Newb.
