1987 Jeep Comanche pioneer 4.0L from North America


Small truck with heart of a full size


Truck does not start properly when engine is warm. This is due to either the fuel pump or the fuel pressure regulator. I need to do a pressure test to determine which.

Truck pulls to one side. Apparently it was in an small accident before I bought it. Had an alignment done, but the technician said that some non-adjustable components were out and needed to be replaced.

Engine used to slip out of gear at highway speeds. Replaced one of the sensors on the transmission. Problem cleared right up. (I think it was called the speed sensor, but I am not quite sure)

Coolant light comes on intermittently.

General Comments:

This has been an excellent truck for me and I would recommend it to anyone.

The truck has ample power for all my needs. I never have to worry about passing and I can barely even tell when I am towing something as the engine does not miss a beat.

The truck has over 250 000 kilometers, but the engine still runs as if brand new, and it does not use any oil whatsoever.

Hey I was wondering if you could let me know how much the sensor in the transmission costs and if you paid American or Canadian thanks.

Every other time I get to ride in the Comanche with my Aunt's boss' permision. She and I rode in it, and every other time she started the Comanche, it started without trouble and the next time, it died and it takes a few minutes to start back up. Other than that, no problems.

Remarkably good vehicle


Catalytic converter replaced twice.

Water pump at 95,000.

Plastic interior parts rattle and buzz excessively.

Interior lighting is dim.

General maintenance otherwise.

General Comments:

Air conditioner never recharged in 14 years and it still works great!

Still has original tail pipe!

This vehicle has become a part of my life and I would find it very hard to part with it. I have seen only two others with the silver and maroon paint job I have.
