Don't wait even if you buy the OEM Moper part at $64.00 don't wait.

It will go out at the worst time you could imagine.

Take my word for it just do it.... It's a 20 min fix.

Serpentine's are cheap and easy to install, espically on the 4cyl. Wait until you have to change the internal timing belt. My 94YJ 4cyl had a timing chain and is still fine after 200K. The 04 I have has a belt and will need a replacement per the owners manual. I can only assume the 4.0's need them also.
