sport utility engine

Hi, I'm new and not quite sure where I should have posted this. I have a 1997 wrangler which I recently found out there was a recall for the PCM. In researching this I found my Jeep is not an SE but a sport utility (I know nothing about automachanics). In researching that, I seem to always find that the sport utility engine is a v6, but my engine is a 4. Is it possible that my Jeep may have a SE engine in it? Also, if it's listed as a sport utility, but I have a SE engine do I have any kind of complaint against dealer?

your jeep is what it SE.....You have a Wrangler SE, which i think, stands for special edition...and all wranglers are listed as suv's by the mfgr....

No, you have an SE model. They came from the factory with a 2.5L 4 cylinder engine. Every wrangler ever produced is called a Spoty Utility Vehicle.

And if what you're saying is true, then your 1997 Wrangler is a TJ (round headlights). This is for the YJ's (square headlights):
