my jeep needs an EFE grid? whatever that is, to pass emissions to get it registered...just wondering if anyone can tell me where I can find one...Ive looked online...every parts and jeep restoration site I can find, and also ebay and junk yards around this area...its a 1985 cherokee v6 2.8L...Any help is appreciated, thanks.

all it is is a heated grid that heats the air coming into the engine during cold starts, to as you already know, improve emissions, the only reason it would fail is if turns your MIL on, because if the jeep is already hot, there will be no need for it, if u want an easy fix other than replacing it try putting a resistor in the wire, dont use anything solid state like a paper clip or you might pop the computer. if the emissions coming out of the tailpipe are a problem, just stop by your local drugstore and get a bottle or two of rubbing alcohol and dump that in the tank its the same as that "guaranteed to pass emissions" stuff u get at autozone for like ten times the price.
