My belief is if you have to add a fuel additive, you have another problem that needs to be fixed. I've stupidly tried most of them, foolishly thinking it would fix the problem. Same goes for power...

When I push in the door switch button, the chime stops and the courtesy lights go out. I didn't think the chime on was normal but this is my first TJ (97) so I wasn't sure what is normal. Someone...

Not sure if this is normal. New to TJ's and I didn't find it in the manual or by searching on this forum. As soon as I open the driver's door, I get the chime coming on. No key in the ignition, no...

I don't what difference it makes if its a Jeep or a lawn mower, after a while oil, any oil, will leave a film on the surface. After a while, that becomes more like a varnish, and if not run often...

The dealer claimed that when they ran the car, it didn't act up. Not sure they ever ran it cold, however.

You have the same conclusion I got on the MAP, IAC and TPS. If they screw up, they...
