do a lot of research before hand, watch plenty of youtube videos. the only reason I knew to use it, and felt confident in using it is that my boss (IT company) used to be an HVAC guy, and he knows waaaayyy more than I do, and did it to his.
No idea on the overheating yet. Didn't get done until 9ish last night, but I did take it on the interstate on the way home. The temp stayed at 205, not 210-212 like it has been. Cleaning that mud out of the radiator, and having a condenser that isn't stopped up HAS to help. I need to get the shroud finished too, so I can pull air across the whole thing instead of just 70% of it.
I did get the 3 CEL codes again last night (300,302,307) I think I'm going to buy a couple coil packs on the way to work, swap them out and see what happens.
I replaced my temp sending switch last night and all appears to be well this morning. I'll know for sure when I'm driving home, when it's warmer outside and I get to UP the big hill that I usually gun it on instead of coasting down it. Other places where I would usually get warm, I stayed below 210 on. I'm hopeful that my temperature was just being read incorrectly, but I doubt it. We'll see.
I'm going to have to try that propane trick, thanks Narn! What is that app that you're running on your tablet? I may have to look into that.
Whether or not I'm running lean is still to be determined, my "buddy" is being an ****ole, but the software and cable is only $30. If I can just remember what it was called, I'll buy it and check my fuel mixture myself.
i had misfires on 3 and 8 rcently. replaced all plugs and it went away. good luck with the misfire, it sucks when she's not running right
those temps are pretty normal for me when i'm on the trails in 90*+ down here in Florida. this was on the way to the offroad park in the morning. temp was in the 80's and this was after maybe an hour of already running at that speed.

It's a Jeep, it's not supposed to work right all the time.
it's 90 out now (ugh I hate the heat). I had to run to a client's place to take care of some things.
Sitting in traffic, it would fluctuate between 208 and 212 degrees. Once I jumped on the 4 lane, I gunned it up to 60 and it hit 217 pretty quickly. I didn't go far, so I can't say it will climb more than that. Once I came to a stop light, it dropped back to 210.8
I need to put some fuel in it and just go for a drive. I've got so much to do though.
