In this video, I briefly go over the history of this amazing machine, and then we discover the SUV together. I find some weird stuff inside, we replace a bunch of parts and try to get it started.

You can get dodge ram starters for those. They bolt right up to any 5.9 my friend put a 98 ram 5.9 starter in his 5.9 limited and it works and those go for 50 bux.

Give it a quarter to half throttle while cranking. The 5.2s and 5.9s are finicky when they sit for a while. I gaureentee it will fire and when it does keep it revved up for a minute.

The 5.9 limited had more power than the truck engine and required premium fuel. it made more than the standard truck 5.9, 255 hp is what I remember, but it might have been 250.

I miss my 5.9 ZJ, well, aside from the gas mileage AND the crappy quadra-trac transfer case! Too bad they didn't just use the 249 select Trac transfer case in them unless someone actually WANTED the crappy quadra-trac for some reason.. Next ZJ is gonna be a straight 6 select Trac with the factory tow package for the 3.73:1 gearing AND the limited slip rear end!!

archangel20031 2 days ago
When it definitely seems like there is a starter issue when you replace the starter unless the battery is damn near New it should be replaced as well, a place of spark plugs and if the wires look old replace those as well, and then all you need is a can of ether start and shoot a small shot down the intake to see if the engine will start running, if it does you know the only issue is fuel.

Pull the plugs, and pour some Marvel mystery oil into each cylinder, about a shot glass for each one. Let it sit overnight. The next day, give the engine without plugs one or two turns over to get the Marvel mystery oil to blow out of the spark plug holes. It’s going to make a mess, that can be cleaned up later. It works wonders on old cylinder rings

5/2021.. I had one of those awesome Jeeps back in 2014 with only 289k miles and ran absolutely mint. Unfortunately living in Rhode island with all the salt, it ate the jeep alive. Unfortunately I had to sell it cause someone wanted the motor, interior, and the rear sound bar. Best vehicle ever. Do you still have the Jeep after all this passed time.

I owned a 5.9 ZJ, I put a front and rear long arm suspension kit on it, fox 2.0 shocks, 35” maxis tires with bead locks, did a 239 transfer case swap, 8.8 rear end swap and a bunch of goodies. I beat the shit out of it, rock crawled the shit of it. I sold it for $11,000 and kick my self in the ass since

I’d try retiming distributor with #1 @ tdc like you said… The popping through the exhaust when you were cranking made it sound like it was out of time. Could also be a crank sensor messed up Giving the ECM a bad signal

They are known for bad crank sensors . It's a jeep thing . .. also known for bad computer check an scan for codes maybe it has a pending code .. what was that fuse for ??? It was bad for a reason check it out hope you get it running 💯

Was probably changing the oil on a dirt road, and just wanted clean up after himself and avoid fines. Believe it or not this happens all the time on truckstops, if they spot you working on your semi, you will get fined, some truckstops allow work to be done on trucks, but you must leave the property the way you found it, so no stains. I've seen a car start gushing oil on an asphalt street, police pulled the guy over... Cost him $15k to clean up the oil he spilled

I turned 16 in 1998 and the vehicle I was screaming for was a brand new Grand Cherokee Limited in black with tan leather and the 5.9 Magnum. Instead dad bought me a K car wagon lol Saddest video from cash for clunkers was watching a guy kill my exact Jeep with 80k miles 😥
