|jkaufman_95||No its a Distributor, there is a tag i just found on the engine that shows a manufacture date of 2001, its the last picture|
|11-01-2010 02:29 PM|
|Hostile JEEP T.J||Wait he said it's a 2000 model with a distributor?? I thought they changed to the coil packs in 99 or 2000 and up??|

Stolen maybe and VIN# changed?
Check with the Dealer re the VIN# and ownership.

|cedarcreekjerky||Could they of just put a body from a 4.0 on the 2.5 chassis?|

|T2000J||Best thing to do is call the guy and ask him|

I would think thats wrong it be more work and money to switch it to a 4 when it was a 6 .
You would have to switch alot of things cpu, harness , motor mount s . Be same as going from a 4 to a 6 .
Just seems like alot more work to put a 4 in it if it had a 6

|photokate||I am guessing that the original owner replaced the engine and gauges, to include the a new odometer. It's a 2000, 27k miles is pretty unreasonably low it it is the original motor. So since it was probably cheaper to put a 4 cylinder in it, they did it.|

|Hardermods||Where did you run the vin?|
|10-31-2010 07:50 PM|
there is a large shroud between the front of the 4 cylinder engine
and the radiator.
do you have that ? or is it missing.
how about posting a picture of the engine compartment
again checking your title with MVA records
|10-31-2010 07:45 PM|
|10-31-2010 07:37 PM|
are you confusing a I6 (straight inline) with the V6 ?
sure you see only 4 spark plugs
|10-31-2010 06:57 PM|
|10-31-2010 06:34 PM|
Look in the Glove Box maybe the other two are in it ??
|10-31-2010 03:28 PM|
|10-31-2010 12:41 PM|
you probably read the VIN wrong....
trace the VIN to determine what the vehicle was
originally equipped with.
check your title and with MVA

|25172021k||Real suspicious! I agree with GoldTJ why all of the effort for less power??? If it only has 27k why and engine swap? I assume you have done a car fax, but you may want to try autocheck. I have heard it finds more. Also, if you have purchased recently I would suggest contacting one of two people... the owner and ask him or the authorities because something does not add up. Good Luck!|

|Owen_TJ||Could of just been because the 2.5L was a cheaper/lower mile option which he stumbled upon instead of the 4.0|
|10-30-2010 10:12 PM|
|GoldTJ||Well,I believe what you are saying,but I am having a hard time understanding why somebody would ever do such a thing!Kind of like buying a hot rod Camaro with a V-8 and deciding a 6 cylinder engine would be better!WTF???????! Not to mention how difficult such a swap would be,to reduce power.Gains would be less than zero!|
