Just picked up a 2001 Wrangler yesterday with a 4.0 and automatic transmission. Appears to be (and was told) it is pretty much stock and original.
My general intentions are to use this thing to get around most days and it would be considered more of a pavement pounder I'm sure to most of you. It will see some dirt occasionally as I like to do a lot of hiking and mountain biking, but it probably won't see any serious off road use in the very near future. That sounds like an expensive hobby that I'm trying to stall on, for now.
First off: It has 113k and I'm wondering what kind of basic check-up and maintenance I should go through before I start driving this thing regularly... aside from the typical oil & filter change, air filter, fuel filter etc. Anything specific I should do or check around the 100k mark?
Next: I've got two specific questions from my engine bay...
Pic one: I've circled what I'm talking about in red... is there supposed to be a cap of some sort on this fitting? It looks out of place the way it is.
Pic two: There is a long yellow wire that is spliced into another wire down below. It is connected in with the red twist cap, and on the very end of the yellow wire it is just capped off with a yellow twist cap. Any idea what this is for or why it would have been installed? I know the Jeep was towed in the past, possibly a wire to connect power for brake lights etc?
Thanks for any help, info, or suggestions you guys can provide.
