The truth is that a well designed vehicle would use a diff color for each, would make them easier to see and use. If that essential, no. Is it optimal, yes.

The OP made a simple mistake and was man enough to post it to help others. Everyone else is just being small at this point (or at least come uop with new jokes)

dismount soapbox

OP, dont listen to the goons

Good for the OP to man up and admit a mistake. Anyone that admits any mistake/error has kudos in my book. It doesn't make the rest of us, who haven't done that because we pay enough attention, goons or at fault for giving him a LITTLE bit of grief for it. People too sensitive these days. This is a forum for Jeeps/vehicles not Oprah or Dr. Phil.


Y'all need to put your big boy pants on and deal with the fact that the majority of the people out there haven't made this mistake but y'all did. Of the four vehicles I have owned (all Fords and this Jeep) all had the same color caps. This isn't new or flawed on Jeep's end. Never once even came close to doing this, ever.

This..... I have owned 4 Jeeps since 1998 and they have all been the same under the hood.

I'm really surprised some of the usual brainiacs haven't chimed in advising he should have read the owners manual or reviewed the DVD.

THIS!

Like I said in my first reply, respect, not sympathy.

It's safe to say we've all done something at some point in time that was dumb. Having said that, I'm pretty sure if I did what the OP did, I would have told myself that was a pretty dumb thing to do & left it at that.

Maybe he's like me, and still hasn't gotten his owner's manual, as promised by the dealer, 18 months after buying the Jeep. Liars.

Anyways, this could've been much worse. I don't think it's necessarily a design issue, but I could understand expecting them to be different.

And a good example of could've been worse: My father-in-law (who really is a ******* for more reasons than this) was "working" on their Audi. The car was only about 5 years old at the time. The mother-in-law was complaining about her car making this horrible noise, and the wheel being hard to turn. I asked him what he did, and he said all he did was top off the brake fluid. Well he put it in the power steering reservoir, because both were on the firewall with black caps. He never bothered to read the caps either, lol. I had to drain and flush the system 3 times before it was even usable. It still whined after that, but not very bad.

Needless to say, she asked me to look at her cars anytime they needed anything after that. If he even popped the hood to check the oil she cussed him out, lol.

It is a stupid design. Other folks made the same mistake on other forums.

I colored my coolant cap red with a red sharpie. And coolant blue.

If the OP ran it for a day, I would get entire system flushed ASAP
