Well, here goes... I need to fix/replace the following on my 94 zj 5.2:
1. Replace return line from tranny cooler to transmission
2. Replace both cv boots on front axle
3. Replace battery with optima yellow/red top and battery cables
4. is my radiator leaking? I hope not, if so... replace that.
5. replace my a/c compressor and have my a/c system flushed and rec-charged.
6. steam-clean my damn engine compartment... thing is dirty as ****.
I don't know if I have to do #4 and I know I have to take it to a shop to do #5 (having the system flushed and charged, anyway), and 6 is a no-brainer. If there are any tips on 1-3, please feel free to reply away. Thanks in advance.
P.S. I'm really stressin' on having to do the cv boots, anybody have a link to an online tutorial with pictures and step-by-step instructions? thanks again!

The first order of business is to purchase a Factory Service Manual. It has a very good description of operation for each item. It's a great wat to learn about your Jeep. Then move onto repair and how to sections. Wiring and plug hook up charts are great. It also show where all the wire loom route. And many other items and sections. Don't go the cheap route and buy a hanes or chiltions they are very limited. (They too have some good points). The FSM is far superior and well worth the money, so pony up and get one.
I just replaced one of my cv boots like a week ago I think the thread is still floating around somewhere. You will need a inch and a half socket , a set of 12 point wrenches, $5 at autozone and a cv boot clamp wrench also $5 at autozone. The manual is also a good idea it tells you step by step how to do it. also make sure you clean where the old boot was real good and repack it with the lube that is supplied in the boot kit, which I think I paid $11 for. I hope that helps out a little, It took about 2 hours to do.
