Been reading up on my Jeep codes, as I decided to go on out & get the codes.  It would appear I have a MAP sensor issue.  Might be something giving the MAP sensor issues though, so could also be the computer itself.  Further testing should show without taking to a shop.....I hope!

A lot of things can cause a map sensor fault(besides a bad sensor and they do fail).  Bad gaskets, vacuum leaks, wiring issues, and about everything in between, some vehicles the EGR valve can cause problems with it.

Water heater malfunction at milk parlor, so lines weren't cleaned proper.  Just a bad connection, so all is well.  Gonna eat breakfast, then head to Modern Steel, then pick up an ink cartridge for my printer.  I need to print out stuff for taxes, then found ink low.

  Milking went smoothly.   :D

How do you get away with a straight pipe in this day and age?  When I was a kid (teen) I put a set of straight pipes on my car.  Didn't last long before I was pulled over,  car was impounded, I went to juvenile detention.  I was also skipping school with my girl friend, her mom bailed us out and also got the charges dropped on the condition I put stock pipes back on. :wallbanging: :wallbanging: :wallbanging:

 

Not true straight pipes, but duals tail pipes with no muffler(s) coming out of the dual cat convertors. It was pretty loud, but I've never gotten pulled over for it. I had the same thing on my 92 S10 /4.3L. It almost sounded like a V8 at low RPM's.

 

Daniel, hope you find out the Jeep issues without having to spend t much money, those can be a bear to find. Tahoe started missing a few weeks a go, yeah, prefect timing with all the snow, Firebird is just not the ice/snow vehicle if you can believe that :D . Ended up the brand new 100K mile plugs I put in right before plow day fouled out. $48 for plugs and they last less than 4 months :wallbanging:

Got the steel ordered to be bent/cut for the silage mixer wagon.  Ended up saving $200 by waiting to have it done.  Steel price dropped quite a bit.  Should be ready for pickup Friday, so when I go to my heart doc appointment, I'll be pulling a 16' trailer loaded with steel.   2 sheets of 3/8" thick 4'x8' sheets, each $258, plus costs for shearing one sheet to 4', and 6 bends on 2 sections.

  Also dropped papers at the tax office, got ink for my printer, ate lunch, got a new well pressure/bladder tank & fittings to fix a couple small leaks in the parlor, got 2 small bottles of propane so I can flame clip the cow's udders, visited Dad at rehab, then home.  Busy day!   Just gonna feed silage and then do some bill paying.

You didn't do too bad on the steel.  The last sheets I ordered for work were 227.50 a sheet.  That was on 11/13/2013.  I don't know what her current price is.

Not sure what that means other then you are removing hair from udders with flame?

Yep, a lazy flame, not like a torch.  Just wave it under the udder, and it fries the fuzzy straggly hair that attracts dirt/sawdust & the like.  Makes the cows SO much cleaner, and helps keep mastitis down too.  Nasty/stinky job burning the hair off though!

BUSY today.  Once I eat breakfast, it's back to the parlor for flame clipping udders.  Then after lunch, I MUST patch the silage wagon, as a hole 8" across fell out of it this morning.  Stalls need to have new chips spread also, but Josh will have to start it, and may have to finish, depending on how long the wagon repair takes.
