lots of questions

My defrost an vents randomly switch an then go back to the setting once you let off the gas...
Run out of gas once the needle shows half a tank but there is still fuel in it cause when you fill it back up it only takes 10-11 gallons on a 20 gallon tank...
My steering dampener jus broke today. Was driving turned right into gas station an heard a pop looked an my driver side dampener of my dual dampener set up broke...
Any help is lots of help I'm not very me mechanically inclined as to diagnose I'm jus a parts changer

Post the details of your jeep to help.


Vent issues sounds like a vacuum leak, the higher the RPM the more vacuum produced.

Fuel tank should be a 19 and the gages are known to be inaccurate.

Damper replacement is a straightforward unbolt and replace issue.

Opinions on whether to go back to a dual steering damper or go with a single... an how can the fuel problem be fixed

Tj should only need a single steering dampener. If there are two on yours someone was probably trying to incorrectly fix a death wobble problem.

It came with the set up it has now wats the best option for a replacement for someone tryin to do a budget build....
An as for the fuel I'll fill it up till comin out the neck an drive it back an forth to work an it will run out (stuck on side of road) once it reaches a half tank An when I fill it back up it only takes 10-11 gallons before it's full again an you can hear gas in it when you shake it
