It poured all the coolant out while I was still a 1/2 mile away from home, had no where to turn off to. Turned the key while it was in neutral and coasted it infront of my house.


ugh.

ROFL this has happened to me, I put my 4.0 on Craigslist a while back, running great no issues. The day comes to show it, I go out and start it, it doesn't start, I look down oil leak, I get it started rear diff starts making noise. Had to cancel the showing, after I cancel it suddenly starts working as if nothing happened. Checked all seals no leak rear diff sound went away...

I take it off CL no issues I put it back on a week later, and axle bearings go out, valve coer gasket blows in the back, PCM goes out... They haw feelings man it's freakig scary!

OT.. Bad thermo I believe I will post temp outside as well as operating temp in a 5.2

Well number 1069 of 2733 Orvis went down today spent 235 on it today just to find out I have a busted head gasket leaking water into my oil. So after allthe time and money spent on improvements lift ect. I've got a big nice looking jeep thats just gonna sit until I can get her fixed I could tear it all down but to be honest kinda a big job and I'd forget where **** went and it would be a hassel just let a real mechanic do it. SAD SAD SAD.
