Hi,  hate to put a downer on your purchase but you should have bought a 4ltr petrol. Parts for the fiesel will be a nightmare for you to obtain stateside and parts are not really interchangeable with the petrol models. engine and driveline are not the same as the 2.5 or 4ltr petrols.

scan through the search option results will give you an idea of common issues and potential improvements.

No.1 injector is a pain as they are "unique" to the jeep and rely on a set resistance range with will change when the injector gets clogged with soot or the wire goes hard with age. depending on the value you can fool the ECM by adding a resistor. but if you engine wont reve past 2k then i would first check the intake pipe just to the left of the radiator (facing wind shield), these have a metal spiral spring inside the intake pipe as a support, with time this metal spring fails and allow the tube to collapse when going past 2k. replace the pipe or use and old mastic tube which surprisingly is a very good fit (cut to required length)

have fun

Have you tried a search on the forum?  The XJ 2.5 diesel with its separate overheating heads has been discussed nearly to death in the past.

Try a few different search terms : VM 2.5,  2.5 diesel,  XJ 2.5 etc....

I don't know much about the diesels myself but do have MANY FSMs. These are all the diesel supplements from the 99XJ FSM.

Greetings,  looking for help-  I'm in the United States, I have a 97 XJ 2.5L diesel  VERY RARE here so I cant find any information.  Anyone have a diagnostic manual or anything to help diagnose this 2.5 diesel? 

MAF sensor?  I cant find any info yet scanner reports readings. 

What's up -  at @2000rpm it falls flat, no more rpm's and low power. 
Checked fuel press.  turbo wastegate, EGR, no codes, #1inj ohms, whats next ?

ANYWAY - being in the USA I have some access to jeep manuals IF I can help let me know BUT remember the access is to common USA models...
just ask -

I have the d35 in my ZJ which I need to either uprate or replace, so either super 35 or an 8.8. I'm somewhat reluctant to pay the crazy postage and import charges getting suitable 30 spline shafts and a diff from the
states and I'm not able to do the 8.8 swap myself and don't fancy getting my pants pulled down paying a company to do the job for me. I'm pretty handy with the tools but being disabled the logistics of an axle swap is beyond me. So this is a bit of a cry for help. Does anyone have any uprated D35 parts, complete built axle d35 d44 8.8 I won't be rock crawling and beating on but I need to over engineer because if I break something out in the middle of nowhere I'm a bit buggered. I'm based in Hertfordshire but very willing to travel

Rockauto sells kits for the 4Ltr Cherokee's for like £85 plus VAT and shipping, if the gearbox is the same, Id have thought they would fit, you'd have to see if you can get the pipe off yours to use tho, it being RHD, or stump up £430 to Jeepey for the Crown one they have, but special order!
