My being mechanically...limited to say the least, I took the ol' ZJ in for a looksie after noticing an ATF leak yesterday. Bah, but the seal between the transmission and the TF is going, leaking rather well actually. So the shop is going to replace it, but pricey as heck. The seal, $9.00. The labor, $225. Yeah, I live in a small town, and things cost. I've let that leak go for two years now. It was bound to need dealt with eventually. The BG fluid helped seal it for a year now, but it's finally going. I'm just glad it didn't come gushing out on a road trip or wheelin' somewhere. Glad I always carry extra ATF, also.
I'm having the diff fluids changed and as well as the transfer case ATF. Going with the BG synthetic for that. Might as well. I know my Jeep isn't worth much anymore, but it's got value to me. I can't afford anything else, even with the CfC insanity. I don't want to see my Jeep die a horrible death either. I'd love to lift it, but these things keep adding up.
To all those that will say, do it yourself, eh, one person cannot know how to do everything. I haven't the time or inclination to fix every issue on my Jeep. I love the thing, but I have a job and responsibilities beyond wrenching on a 13 year old vehicle every day. I'd love to know all the ins and outs, but that's not happening in my current situation. It sucks a lot as this stuff costs me. I hope to one day have time and gain the knowledge/experience so I won't need these leaches of garages anymore. I do what I can myself, but man is that limited. This is why I learned to build my own computer. I guess I should've been learning to wrench at the same time. Techy geek here.
