Re: Going Through a Beater XJ 4.0.

If he starts making Star wars or Infinity wars movie I may turn into click bate here. LOL.

But I do read the titles, LOL.

I can read/scan 5-10 pages in about 1-2 minutes for what I need. Videos put me to sleep, if they do not annoy the fork out of me first. They remind me of summer time waiting for Christmas morning LOL.

But when I really want to see exactly how to do something, they are nice if you can find them indexed for the task at hand quickly.

What is there in the NSS operation that even cause a reverse issue, I was under the impression you cut power/fuse to the NSS (once the rig was running), or disconnect the NSS and still get reverse gear?
Temps down into the 30's and lower 40's. The trans still goes into reverse with no problem. Starts in neutral and park as well. Not a single problem since the refurb of the NSS.

What??? No click bate video? LOL, JK.


Very interesting. But I still see no way the NSS (with the TCU disconnected) could have any effect on the transmission not being able to shift into reverse. My memory may foggy on this, but I thought with the TCU disconnected, Reverse still worked based on mechanical shifting/hydraulics and did not need an electric solenoid to power up to shift into Reverse. In other words, I thought the NSS and TCU had no control of reverse.

I understand. But reverse has worked perfectly in summer and winter since I went through the NSS. It has 7 wires, so it's not a simple part.

Re: Going Through a Beater XJ 4.0.

A bit late for summer, but that's how it goes. Whenever defrost or defog is used, the A/C is engaged. It drys the air hitting the windshield, keeping it clear.

Re: Going Through a Beater XJ 4.0. MT2400 repair.

This older graphing scan tool from Snapon is helping me get through iac issues with this 4.0 xj. Also useful for looking at the cps. Bought it broken, and repaired it, as shown in this video.

Re: Going Through a Beater XJ 4.0. MT2400 repair.

Awesome, not many us around these days that buy something broken, so we can fix it, so we can use it to fix something that is broken so we can find more broken stuff to fix.

We are nearly extinct critters in the US.

Re: Going Through a Beater XJ 4.0.

A further attempt to repair an upgrade to an already great tool. This MT2400 memory module repair is for a fellow Youtuber. I've really enjoyed using the MT2400 on the '88 XJ 4.0. Same with the MT2500.
