Re: High mileage vehicles- let's see em

I had a ‘98 Jeep Cherokee with 343,000 miles on the 4.0 I-6.

A few years back I overheated it, which put it out of commission. I think it would still be running today if I hadn’t tried to push it.

I still have the engine but haven’t rebuilt it (yet).

Got the fuel cap off fairly easily.

The fount was about half full of what I can only describe as a syrupy mixture of old gas and tar.

I doubt there’s any rust on the inside, but I’ll have to dump some drain cleaner in and let it soak for a bit.
