|2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4.0L Poor Idle Quality VIN: 1J4GW48S61
Hi, all. This jeep will not idle cold--IAC valve does not seem to be controlling idle properly. Using a Snap-on 2500 scanner, I have no codes. I used the idle control output function of the scan tool and requested 2000rpm, and rpm only went up to 1200 rpm. Nex...

|1999 Chrysler 300M 3.5L No Start VIN: 2C3HE66G7X
Well... put everything back together and the car mysteriously started running. Turns out that the motor is shot anyway, it has a serious rod-knock from one of the rear cylinders. I have a sneaky suspicion that the customer did not tell us the full story. Any...

Several of you had this one nailed. There was a rub through on the main wiring harness that runs down the back of the engine. The rub through was very obvious once you could get the harness up where you could see it. It rubbed through 2 of the ground wires tha...
