Well, I never updated before I left. Sorry guys! No pics yet either, my buddy never emailed them to me. (he has a much better camera) we just got back to Cleveland last night so I have a lot to do obviously so I'll keep this short and to the point.
2050 miles total.
130 gallons of gas (480 bucks)
So about 700 miles in, (right before the GA border) I started pouring oil onto my cat, smoke was billowing EVERYWHERE! Transmission fluid was leaking onto my cross member as well. Not as bad as the oil, but bad.
50 miles later, I pull into a gas station to buy some oil and ATF (they only had Type A and F...) So I top off the oil and go to start her back up. No start
. Orange light of death comes on. I do the turn key trick, code 34. Pop the hood and look at the MAP sensor..looks fine to me. So I giggle the cord and check for vacuum leaks and nothing. Turn key, crank crank crank, START
. *whew* Alrighty then...back on the road.
200 miles later in Alabama I get pulled over for excessive use of the left lane. (WTF?) At this point my Jeep is smoking so bad that the officer kindly asks me to pull my vehicle off of the grass, as to not start a fire
-.- He asks me if I shut if off, will it crank again? Of course I say no. So he hands me my ID back and says to have a safe trip.
We finally make it to PCB and I take it right to my Aunts shop.
The damage on the way down there;
Oil filter O-rings
Coolant temp sensor
and the best, I was leaking tranny fluid because my transmission had been removed before and they said the bolts were only hand tight... WTF YOU LAZY PREVIOUS OWNER...I hate you. Anyways, I don't know what it cost because she wouldn't tell me.
Intermission, le partay en PBC.
On the way back I lose a sway bar end link bolt. (Huh?)
Both rear shocks
Had to wrap this up real quick guys, been gone for a week and the fiance just got here. Duty calls
