RednekYJ Looks like ill be pulling the tach and cleaning some contacts. I'm thinking my idle is about 2-300 lower than what it's reading.

Gohot OK, I just went out and started it, a 95 4.0. It was 27 outside, I started it and let it warm up, setting the fan on the second position of three until I got up to temp. It took about 10 minutes to get up to full temp at which point it was putting out good heat. I was tacking about 4.5 rpm fully warm, it was just under the imaginary #5 between zero and ten. It sounded like it was in its fully warm 'sweet spot' at idle, just right. And no.... my unit doesn't have a pin at the bottom of the tachometer sweep. I have 145K on the motor with a fresh oil change 10w30 and Rislone 'Zink' treatment.

Gohot Mine sets on the line perfect, what would represent zero. At idle it should read just an N'th above what would be 5.0 to 6.0 between the marks for 0 and 10. Just a lines width above what would represent '5'. Which would translate into about 600 rpm plus or minus 50-75 rpm or about 620 to about 650 rpm. The stop may be worn, I don't believe there's a pin.?? I'd have to look on mine, but it's dark and cold outside right at the moment.

Where do yours sit when the yj is off? My tach appears to be around 1-200. I think it should be like my speedo. Also sweet mileage pic when I rolled in the driveway yesterday.
