Hi all,
I'm currently looking at a Cherokee Sport 2.5L Diesel -98 that I hope will be mine shortly. It looks OK but I need your expereince to know what to look for. Is there any parts that are more likely to become a problem soon, or in the future, than others.

Please advice

Thanks!

Since you are looking at a 98 with a Diesel, I assume you are in Europe? There's nothing in particualr that are big problems on XJ's. At least not until you start taking them apart and lifting them. Mr. Green

Just watch for the normal stuff you would when buying any car.

Thanks, and yes, I'm in Sweden, Europe. (If you had our gas-prices you would buy diesels too Neutral
This particular vehicle has recently had all cylinder heads replaced. (One per cylinder!) This is due to overheating I guess. However, it has almost run 90000 miles, it looks quite good.
From what I understand there are a few components that traditionally seems to give in before the rest of the car: manual gearbox, rear and front axles. Any ideas?

Thanks for your enthusiasm!
