Talking Abbreviations

hey, im thinkin its about time to make list of all the lingo we use here. it would be cool to make it a sticky too... so this is what i have figured out:

IIRC - If I Remember Correctly

SPOBI- Stop Putting Out Bogus Information

HTH - Hope This Helps

IMO - In My Opinion

IMHO - In My Humble Opinion

CE - Check Engine

TC - Transfer Case

TPS - Throttle Position Sensor

NSS - Neutral Safety Switch

CPS - Camshaft Position Sensor

TIA - Thanks In Advance

BTW - By The Way

ROTFL- Rolling On The Floor Laughing

NHV - Noise, Vibration, and Harshness

BPE - Bar Pin Eliminator

LCA - Lower Control Arm

UCA - Upper Control Arm

CV/dshaft - Not a true Constant Velocity as it would seem, but actualy a near constant velocity, double-cardan-style universal joint shaft, commonly refered to as a CV joint.
there are no true Constant Velocity shafts on Cherokee's unless someone has gone way outside of themselves and made something to use one.

TSB - Technical Service Buliten

FSM - Factory Service Manuel

HO - High Output

VSS - Vehicle Speed Sensor

IAC - Idle Air Control - also refers to Idle Control Vavle

OBD-II - On Board Diagonostics (Type 2)

ODB-I - On Board Diagonostics (type 1)

welp thats all i got, feel free to comment and add more... just trying to help others out...

Not true.

Once again, it's important not to extrapolate from your year and model to assume that the same specs apply to all years. Some of the very early Cherokees (and XJ Wagoneers) did use true constant velocity joints in the front drive shafts and front axles. Commonly referred to as the "beer can on a popsicle stick" drive shafts. This is the primary reason I wish people would refer to the double cardan drive shafts as "double cardan" drive shafts rather than as "CV" drive shafts -- to avoid confusion, since Jeep did use both and often the questions are asked without stating what year and model is being asked about.
