what a difference

Had a productive (kinda) day with an added surprize. Changed out the plugs, cap, rotor and cleaned up/tightened the battery connections. Can't beleive what a difference it made. It runs alot better and even shifts alot smoother-especially from a start.
Was going to change the fluids but they looked new(have had it 3 weeks now), thinking maybe the PO or dealer i got it from did it. Was also going to greese everything but i could only find fttings on the front linkage(4) nothing anywhere else-figured the u joints would have something but nope-not even the plugs the factory puts in(rem that from the ole days-having to install zerts because the factory would put plugs in instead.)
looked hi/low and nothing-even felt around looking for plugs. I know there has to be more than 4 fittings-guess i'll have to get under there with a light.
also wondering if the computer resets it's self when disconnect from the battery for a while-just seems to run a whole bunch better-more than I would have thought for what was done.(batt was dirty and pos whs real loose-hand removable and from reading here i gather the batt plays a big part on how everything runs on jeeps)

I put 600 miles on mine after new battery. Nothing reset and fAiled inspection 3 times , had to print out a drive cycle to get the monitors to close, what a pain in the ass, and of course only 2 closed out of the 4 , cat and evap still open but at least it was enough to pass, hopefully you don't run into that problem
