  2. Hi Wrangled, there would be a gap of about 1 hour between both the drives. So to answer your question, you can do both drives.

  6. Check the cross of the drive shaft. If that has gone bad it might cause this noise. Tell your friend to go under the cargo and try to rotate the drive shaft by hand and see if there is any play.
  7. Would you know if the check valve can be fixed or the whole unit needs to be replaced. Also would a bad check valve result in power loss at higher rpm, or does that issue point towards a clogged mesh.
  8. I suspect that as well, but the car starting in second crank does indicate the check valve, and I am not sure who has the expertise to replace that part. @sertac did you change it with Mopar or any other brand?
  9. On my XJ, for the past 3 years my fuel pump was always on the weaker side as the engine would fire only on the second crank and never on the first one. However it never was on top priority as the car was performing well. But over the past several months I have found the car to be increasingly sluggish. Recently, when I checked I found that the fuel pressure was dropping to about 40 psi as the RPM was being increased to beyond 3500. As per spec, the fuel pressure should be 49 psi. My questions are : 1. Is such a drop in pressure normal? Does it warrant a change of pump? 2.The original Mopar complete module costs about AED 1450 + vat. I have seen some good reviews of Bosch and Carter but not 100% sure. Any feedback or suggestions?
  10. Tell her that you will celebrate on two days, Feb 13 and Feb 15 When I told my wife that I am not there on Feb 14th, the first question was, Who are you going out with? 😁
