Are there are any AZ people out there, I need your help. Well...my Cherokee just flaked out on me. I took it to Firestone because is was leaking water about as fast as I was putting it in there and my power steering was leaking also. They called me with some bad news. I need a new power steering pump, new high pressure hose, new water pump, and new upper and lower radiatos hoses. And when they were working on it, they said that the injectors were spraying fuel everywere. There were at least 3 or 4 leaking injectors. That problem just started happeneing cause I never experienced that one. But thats not the worst part. They want $2500 to fix everything. I have worked on cars before but never on Jeeps. Does anyone, in AZ, know of a good cheap garage that I could take it to? This is my daily so it is killing me to have it down. Thanks for your help.

2500$ from a shop is normal for a shop , leaky injectors should just be new o-rings .

those are all fairly simple parts changes . you can do it with basic hand tools . pump lines may be hard to remove


75-90$/hr in a shop , it all takes time .

if your power steering pump ran out of oil and chunks of steel went into your hydraulic system then you should get new pressure hose and return and a new box because the shards of metal in beded in the lines will just grenade the little vain pump .


to bad the hole jeep isn't even worth 2500$

From Sticky: XJ Teck writeups from above

REPLACING THE WATER PUMP
http://jeepin.com/features/waterpump/index.asp

If your power steering pump is noisy replace it and the leaking houses at the same time.

Ok. Just picked up the Jeep and the injectors are leaking...bad. The funny thing is that they are not leaking were they meet the head. Looks like they are leaking in the middle of the injector itself. The guy at Firestone said that with the milage i had, even if i was going to to the work myself, which I am, he would get new or remanufactured injectors. What are your opinions??? The Cherokee has 173,185 miles on it now.

Thanks again.
