92 YJ advice

Just purchased a 92YJ 4.0 5spd with 89k. It needs a few things but not to bad. It had been sitting for 2 years with out much use. Oil has been changed fluids checked. I plan to do a tune up on it is there any thing I should change out besides the normal plugs,wires,cap maybe sensors or something? I am new to the jeep so any help would be great thanks.

Air filter. Sensors I wouldn't worry except maybe cranks position sensor. That sensor will leave you stranded if it goes out. So unless the jeep is starting to give running problems I wouldn't worry. To me the most important fluid that should be changed other than oil is the axle fluids and transmission and transfer case. With it sitting for two years who knows how much moisture has built up in there from the different weather patterns it went through and without any use of the jeep to keep the fluids moving around which helps keep the fluids from getting worn from just simple moisture build up I would most definitely replace them. Plus the age and mileage on it is a good time to do those routine changes. Good luck and welcome.

I would also change out the fuel filter. With it sittings or that long there is no telling what kind of junk was sitting in the tank and now is stuck in the filter.

n2Trucking is 100% correct when he talks about the the crank sensor. I purchased a 1993 a few months back. I was coming home from the airport after a busniness trip, POW the thing shut down. When it shuts down, you are screwed. I had to call a tow truck since I was on the interstate. I cost me about $300 when it was finally operable. The other thing, I was stranded about 95 miles from home. So you can tack on another $100 for a cab and then a lot of fast talking to find someone to give me a lift back to pick it up.

Moral of the Story: Check the crank sensor!
