My 2.5 just started blowing all kinds of oil out of the top of the valve cover and dip stick. Im told it excessive blow by and the engine is shot. I hate to put a lot of money back into a 2.5. I was considering switching to a 4.0L But have heard its a pain. Would love some suggestions, or if anyone knows what type of engines are good canadates for the YJ I'd love to know.
I had originally planned to do a Diesel conversion with 4BT, but don't have the money to pull that off yet. I just looked at a conversion kit for a small block chevy, but that kit cost more than a new engine. I could have sworn the last conversion kit I bought (its been a long time) was much less.
any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks and happy trails.
