Jon M Thanks all for your input and help. Learning as I go and annoying the crap out of the wife who told me to get allthis done in the shop in the first place... But I think its a learning experience doing it myself.

That's pretty normal after clearing the computer. It will run a bit unusually until the computer relearns everything which happens as it is driven.

Jon M I was wondering when u were gonna chime in on this one. Thanks for the info. Will try in the morning.

Jerry Bransford Disconnect the battery's negative lead for two minutes, that'll clear the codes.

Neil F. You can pull the plugs and stick your finger in. If there was water, it will look like a milk shake. If it was babied by and older man, I doubt there was any chance of water getting in.

Jon M Actually I did research the previous owner. He was an old man who used it to golf on the weekends. Was a local jeep. No mods what so ever. Had Just under 27K miles when I bought it this past August. Was garage kept. Fenders are still black and shiney. Had original tires. Has original top, etc.... Anyway to check the diff's for water prior to pulling them apart?

doclouie I always take the approach that the previous owner did nothing to my new vehicle and I change out most everything that can be changed. You will learn a bit by doing services earlier and know it has been done right. As for the trans and diff I would take the same approach and assume the last guy wheeled it in water. That way you will know exactly where everything stands.

Jon M Thanks, got real nervous when I first started up and heard the knocking. Looked at 4x4explor and jeep.us41.org and they mentioned missing the plug boots when putting the rail back on. I'm not the most mechanically inclined but wanted to do this myself since I've heard maintenence on the 4.0 is so simple. Now just need to get the oil done and flush the radiator since I don't know if the previous owner did it at the 60 month mark. Saw in the owners manual to do it at 60 months or 100K miles. Also talked to a mechanic buddy of mine and he said as long as I'm not wheeling through water not to worry about the transfer case and differentials until 60K miles. What do you guys think?

doclouie X2-it will clear itself after so many starts. Do not worry about it.
12-17-2010 10:10 PM
DevilDogDoc It'll go off in a few starts. Ignore it until then, or unplug the battery.

jasonwrangler clear the code maybe?

Well, changed out the plugs today. Put the rail back on. Apparently miss 2 plugs, unknowing this started engine. Heard knocking sound of cyl not firing I guess. Turned engine off but at same time check engine came on. Redid the rail and engine sounds fine but engine light still on. Comes up with code p0305 which would match the plug boot I missed. Anyway, please chime in with some insight. Thank you all.
