Can you use the techconnec thingy to find out whether that computer flash can be done on any OBDII 4.0l XJ here.

I mentioned it as only being suitable for the 2000/2001 in the other, general cooling thread last year, coz my local dealer reckoned it was year model specific .... but the dealers say a lot of things ....

Best you check for belly dancers & camels under the backseat jj - as that was the stock radiator for the hot climate, saudi/middle east market ... was also available as a heavyduty cooling option elsewhere .... If the dealer knew about it

Should be in your parts book too.
I hate watching simplicity and reliability being ruined by bureaucracy and technology.

It was listed in the parts book, that is how I know it is from a '94 model, maybe this is part of the reason that I had so little cooling issues.....
Buggered if I know what thermostat is in it though as I have never checked..... oops!!!
