Thanks for the reply. I got a slow radiator leak & ended up with an airlock at the temp sensor. The temp gauge then didn't tell me it was overheating until it was too late :(


Have you tried a breaker's yard? In the UK, they are selling for £1200 +VAT, incl. next day delivery.
How did you cook your engine?

Thanks Kelvin, yep I managed to find one in QLD.
Back up & running now. When I got it back, it really made me appreciate how nice it is to drive!!!
Glad to hear that you are under control now. Was there any drama with the engine management accepting a different engine? I wish that I didn't trade mine, what a fool I am. Happiness surely isn't a new Jeep Grand Cherokee.

No stress with the ECU. The only thing that was an issue was entering the coding for the new injectors. It was put in by a Mercedes specialist (Its their engine!) he had the latest coding units which he could test everything. But apparently entering the injector codes can only be on when its hooked onto the Chrysler network. So he took it around the them for injector coding. 5000km since & all is well

Hi Kelvin,
What did you do with the old engine?
Thanks
