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.

I took my jeep to look at a 5.9 and I think it got mad at me.

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

Got it stuck. It's still stuck. It's so stuck I could call insurance and say it was stolen and no one would ever know. It's so stuck I don't know anyone with a capable enough 4x4 to even to to where I got stuck to winch or yank me out.

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.
