Jeep Wrangler Sahara

What can be wrong if you swapped a 4L engine from my 1994 jeep Sahara with a 4L 1990 jeep larado its seems to be working fine except its idling at 2 grand and no codes are linking to it?

Check throttle linkage is not too tight: Throttle linkage usually is 'slightly' slack to the touch. Check the idle screw (if any): Unless it has a carb or throttle body this (probably) wont apply (computer control) Check for vacuum leaks: With a can of spray lubricant, use the small tube provided to spray a quick small burst on vacuum connection with the engine running, listen for subtle changes in the engine RPM. If RPM changes, you probably have a leak there. Check all vacuum connections in this way. Replace hoses as needed. Check ignition timing: Consult the service manual for procedure. Make sure (all) temp sensors are working properly: If the computer thinks the engine is cooler than it is, it will idle higher. Consult the service manual for procedure. With engine fully warm no throttle solenoids (if any) should be engaged on the throttle linkage. I dont know how similar or compatible these engines are to each other, so, some other thoughts I had were mostly computer related: Data from coil or distributor not being reported properly to computer. Or sensor and computer incompatible. (timing) Data from temperature, or vehicle emission sensor not being reported to computer properly. Or sensor and computer incompatible.(temp, timing or mixture) Data from automatic transmission incorrect (mechanical, vacuum, or electronic sensor) make sure automatic transmission fluid is at proper level. There may also be a PCM (powertrain control module), erroneous data from or to the PCM could cause strange behavior. once again, how compatible are the engines? While your at it make sure coolant is full AND it is actually circulating when engine is warm. there is a idle speed motor somewhere on the throttle body they might have a different step counter that the pcm uses try swapping the origanal to the replaced t.b. also might want to swap throttle possition sensor. sounds like a vacuum leak condition so check for leak. map sensor may be no good as well. lots of possible causes.

The easy way to recognize a linking verb is that a linking verb acts as an equals sign, the object of the verb is a different form of the subject (Mary is my sister. Mary=sister); or the subject becomes the object (My feet got wet. feet->wet).It would be difficult but possible to use 'started' as a linking verb, for example:The engine started itself. (engine = itself). or:She started the engine herself. This is not a linking verb because the object of the verb 'started' is 'the engine', not 'herself', the indirect object.Normally, 'started' is not a linking verb.

I say "Yes u can". Becos a friend swapped a Mercedes M103 engine with a Toyota Chaser 1G engine. The German star is cruising cool n for the lying speedometer. (gearbox swapped for a Toyota one) . It all depends on the capabilities of ur mechanic.

On the driver's side of the engine block you should see either 318 or 360 stamped.

yeah its possible...but u have to get intake and exhaust swapped as well

yes with a welder and alot of thinking i seen one on youtube

If they are the same make, series and size engine, yes.

Google is a good working search engine.

body parts: 2000-2002 Engine parts: most of them can be swapped from 95-2002 with the same engine.

engine is working by using of three or four stroke . and its follow cycles.


the same ones that mount the straight 6 being swapped

Yes these engines can be swapped because they are both fuel injected engines and should be very close if not identical.

the engine will fit but the swap isn't emmisions legal.any swapped engine must be from the same year or newer vehicle.

Yes, but the fuel injectors and sensors will need swapped.

The block is the same, but the manifolds would need swapped.

Certainly. If the 89 originally had the same engine/transmission combo it should be a simple (relatively speaking) job.

NO. There is alot more to a 98 350 then just fuel injection. That year truck MUST have ALL the electronic engine sensors on it and working are the transmission will not even work. The 76 350 has NO place for the engine sensors to go. So it won't work.

The 1995 4Runner was the last model to be released from that series. The engine from 1990 until 1995 can all be swapped relatively easily.
