REMOVAL Ignition Rotor Removal And Installation 1. 2. 3. Disconnect negative battery terminal, disconnect distributor lead wire at the wiring harness connector. Release distributor cap retainers and lift the distributor cap off. Scribe a mark on the edge of the distributor housing to indicate the position of the rotor. Use the mark as a reference when reinstalling the distributor. Remove the distributor hold down bolt and clamp, and carefully lift the distributor out of the engine. 4. INSTALLATION 1. Clean the top of the cylinder block to insure a good seal between the distributor base and block. If the engine has not been cranked with distributor removed, proceed with step 2. If the engine has been cranked with the distributor removed proceed to step 3. Position the distributor into the engine. Make sure the O-ring seal is in place on the distributor housing. Align the rotor with the mark previously scribed on the distributor housing. Engage the tongue of the distributor shaft with the slot in the distributor oil pump drive gear. Proceed to step 4. If engine has been cranked with distributor removed perform the following: a. Rotate the crankshaft until number one piston is at the top of its compression stroke. The mark on the crankshaft vibration damper should be in line with the “0″ TDC mark on the timing chain case cover. b. Rotate the distributor rotor until it is positioned pointing at the number one distributor cap terminal. c. Lower the distributor into the engine, making sure the O-ring seal is in place. Engage tongue of distributor shaft with slot in the distributor oil pump drive gear. Install the distributor hold down clamp and screw and tighten finger tight. Install distributor cap and wires, making sure all high tension wires are firmly secured in cap towers. Connect pick-up leads and negative battery cable lead. Set ignition timing, refer to ADJUSTMENT PROCEDURES for timing adjustment. 2. 3. 4. 5.

REMOVAL 1. Disconnect battery negative cable. 2. Shift transmission into Neutral. 3. Remove shift boot bezel screws and slide boot upward on shift lever extension. 4. Remove shift lever extension from the shift tower and lever assembly. 5. Raise vehicle on hoist. 6. Remove skid plate, if equipped. 7. Drain lubricant if transmission will be disassembled for service. 8. Mark propeller shaft/shafts and companion flange yoke/yokes for installation reference and remove propeller shaft/shafts. 9. Disconnect harness from clips on transmission housing. 10. Remove transfer case linkage if equipped. 11. Remove transfer case mounting nuts and remove transfer case if equipped. 12. Remove slave cylinder mounting nut and remove cylinder (Fig. 2). 13. Remove starter motor, structural dust cover, dust shield and suspension crossmember (Fig. 3). 14. Remove exhaust pipe from the exhaust manifolds. 15. Support engine with adjustable jack stand and wood block. 16. Support and secure transmission to a transmission jack with safety chains. 17. Remove bolts from the rear transmission mount.

WARNING: The fuel system may be under a constant pressure (even with the engine off). Before servicing the fuel pump module, the fuel system pressure must be released. 1. Perform the fuel system pressure release procedure See: Fuel Pressure Release\Service and Repair 2. Disconnect and isolate the negative battery cable (1). 3. Raise and support vehicle. 4. Perform the fuel tank draining procedure See: Procedures 5. Disconnect the electrical connector from ESIM switch (4). 6. Disconnect the quick-connect fitting at the front of the fuel tank (10). 7. Disconnect the quick-connect fitting (8) at the rear of the fuel tank. 8. Loosen the fill hose retaining clamp (9) at the rear of the fuel tank and disconnect the fill hose. 9. Using a suitable hydraulic jack with a fuel tank adapter, support the fuel tank. 10. Remove the two fuel tank support strap retaining nuts (5) and remove both fuel tank support straps (4). 11. Carefully lower the fuel tank a few inches and disconnect the fuel pump module electrical connector. 12. Disconnect the fuel line quick-connect fitting at the fuel pump module. 13. Lower the fuel tank and remove from hydraulic jack. 14. If fuel pump module removal is necessary See: Fuel Pump\Service and Repair\Fuel Pump Module – Removal

TESTING 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. Remove relay before testing. Using an ohmmeter, perform a resistance test between terminals 85 and 86. Resistance value (ohms) should be 75 15 ohms for resistor equipped relays. Connect the ohmmeter between terminals number 87A and 30. Continuity should be present at this time. Connect the ohmmeter between terminals number 87 and 30. Continuity should not be present at this time. Use a set of jumper wires (16 gauge or smaller). Connect one jumper wire between terminal number 85 (on the relay) to the ground side () of a 12 Volt power source. Attach the other jumper wire to the positive side (+) of a 12V power source. Do not connect this jumper wire to relay at this time. CAUTION: Do not allow the ohmmeter to contact terminals 85 or 86 during these tests. Damage to ohmmeter may result. 7. 8. Attach the other jumper wire (12\/ +) to terminal number 86. This will activate the relay. Continuity should now be present between terminals number 87 and 30. Continuity should not be present between terminals number 87A and 30. Disconnect jumper wires from relay and 12 Volt power source. 0 If continuity or resistance tests did not pass, replace relay. lf tests passed, refer to wiring diagrams for (fuel system) relay wiring schematics and for additional circuit information

1. With the ignition key in the OFF position, disconnect the battery. Note: To enhance customer satisfaction, remember to reset the clock when you have completed the service procedure. 2. Remove the two (2) screws that attach the air inlet resonator to the upper
radiator support. 3. Disconnect the upper and lower air inlet hoses from the resonator and remove the resonator. 4. Remove the air cleaner housing. 5. Locate the radiator cooling fan relay on the left front inner frame rail just behind
the radiator (Figure 1). 6. Disconnect the radiator fan relay wiring connector. 7. Remove the radiator fan relay. Discard the relay and the attaching screws. 8. Install the new radiator fan relay using the supplied screws. Tighten the screws
to 35 in-lbs (4 N.m).
