2006 Wrangler, 22,500 miles.
Started it yesterday and got a terrible squeal which resided after 5 min. This morning started it up same thing. On the way home from work it started squealing/howling intermittently.
Come to find out after research that my distributor/oil drive gear is toast or needs to be replaced.
Anyone have any experience with this? My warranty is expired and I just bought it used in Novemeber! Called Jeep who recommended having a dealer look at it and see if manufacturer defect is the cause. TSB's in the past for 2005 models for this problem but not for mine.
Heard after install a scanner is needed for the sync. I have mechanically knowledge but need advice. Please help.
