hey everybody

a friend of mine has been having a little sting of bad luck with his jeep like most of us do. they drive find for 6 months, then it all busts loose..lol

anyways he broke an axle shaft at my house a couple weeks ago, and couldn't find the intermediate shaft anywhere, so i swapped in my spare Xj shaft, well we didn't take into account the seal sizes to it leaked. we finally got a seal in it the other day. well he goes to drive home, and his radiator blows up..he gets it home, and his seal is leaking again.

so 1 problem at a time, how should we go about replacing the radiator, how much are they, and are there any he should go for that cool better

type "wrangler radiator"

the 4,235,233 companies that come up should be able to help you out. i've found that the first results that come up are coming up first b/c they pay to be at the top of the list.... they can afford to pay b/c they sell a ton of stuff.... which usually means they have just about the lowest prices.

If it's not plastic look in the yellow pages for a radiator shop. They will clean it out, pressure test it higher than your cooling system ever goes, and solder any leaks that pop up. The last one I had done cost $40.
