Ok. I admit I' had never done much mechanically till I got this Jeep. I decided that it was time to learn and do things myself rather than paying someone else.
I changed the oil for the first time and since did a brake job, changed the thermostat, installed a 3.5" lift, ignition switch, ECM replacement and a couple other things and nothing has fallen off or apart yet.
So, my engine took a dump yesterday and needs help, bad. It appears to be a head gasket issue as there is obviously water in the oil which blew into my airbox and made a nice puddle under the jeep.
Staying true to my goal of doing things myself, I am going to attempt this one on my own, but have a question.
I've heard from several people stressing out about Top Dead Center.
I only plan on pulling the cyclinder head and replacing the gasket, although I will swap out my water pump and Thermostat while I'm there.
Do I need to mess with getting TDC and if so, at what point?
Guys that were quick to give advice said be sure to get the TDC right, so someone please fill me in.
