1998 Jeep Wrangler Sport 6.0L from North America
The electrical system had problems from the day I drove the vehicle off the lot. The first thing to go was the a/c. I took it in and the dealer said the fuse shorted out. Over the next 20,000 miles I was in the dealership over twelve times for various electrical problems. The dealer kept replacing the fuses. At 24,000 miles the car started having real problems, it would not stay started. They replaced the fuel injector, the starter, and the alternator. After many attempts to fix the vehicle, the dealer said there was nothing they could do. I had to call Chrysler and talk with a lawyer before the problem was resolved. Finally the dealer had to replace the main computer board for the electrical system. Since this was done I have had minimal maintenance issues with the vehicle, until now. Now the exhaust manifold is cracked and the catalytic converter are bad.
I love my Jeep, I hated the headaches I had for the first 24,000 miles.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

Do you have a 6.0L or an in line 6? The exhaust manifold is common. The computer controls the ignition and should have been checked as soon as you had issues with the Jeep. The loop was opening and closing at the wrong time.

"Do you have a 6.0L or an in line 6?"
Um, there is no 6.0L in a Wrangler.
In 1998 the four was a 2.5 liter and the inline six was a 4.0.
