Jeep Problem...Need good Mechanic
I have an 88-jeep wrangler (auto mechanic transmission). I started have carburetor problems in 98. Last year I was told I needed a new engine because of blow-by. My father has fixed that problem, but now the jeep is starting to over heat. I need some help, does anyone know of a good jeep mechanic in the central NJ area.

Hae you check the radiator or the thermostat? Are you loosing coolant anywhere? The radiator may be clogged and need either flushing or cleaned out.
2.5" Lift, no track bar, no sway bars, dual K&N filters, custom exhaust stack, custom front and rear bumpers, welded front and rear
If it overheats during stop and go traffic or during idle, then that means not enough air is passing through the radiator...check the fan. If it overheats during high speeds, then it could be blocked coolant passages, etc...
I see that your dad has fixed the blow-by problem, so he must have rebuilt the engine. Assuming he put a new thermostat in it and it did not run hot before, my best guess would be to check your timing. (Does it feel sluggish?)
