ATF leak at lower radiator conection, got it tightened up by half a turn, looks ok, but will keep an eye on this on.

This is my hand after radiator swap, no question that its tight behind there,,,

I feel your pain, if you check my build thread I had an issue for a while where I replaced my radiator 4 times in the past year... I can do it blindfolded now, such a PITA.

OT: Started her up this morning to a check engine light, she was having some problems taking off like she was stuck in 3rd gear for like 10 min, pulled over put her in park, turned heroff and back on and she was running fine. took her to autozone for a free read and I got a transmission code, P1763; governor pressure sensor too high. I havent had problems with her slipping or anything before this.


Edit: so it sat all day and the light was on when I came to work, went on break and now my engine lights off.

Mine had more doo dads and gizmos and was marked GL4 and the one he gave me was marked GL2. So I took mine apart, cleaned/regreased it, and reinstalled to find it working again. It went out again last night. Have to keep my windows rolled down and zip ties on the b pillar to keep it from swinging open and I get the whole EVIC beeping CONSTANTLY when I drive about it being open. So ****ing annoying. Then of course the motor I just spent 3 grand into rebuilding myself, leaks at the rear main seal some how and I have to pull the whole engine to get to that. Because of that leak, it falls onto the cat, and smoke billows from underneath the hood and you get a lovely smell wherever you go. And of course my radiator decided this would be a good time to start going out so that it could overheat.

Oh and I forgot, my death wobble is back. So done with my WJ.
I got a few more if you wanna try them.

Those actually seem pretty cool with all the options and price isn't bad for 4. I really like the leds though. Wonder if these ones come with all the wiring and switches?

Pulled the front-end apart on my 99' WJ. Today, if the light doesn't run out on me, I'll be putting the rebuilt surrogate on with new tie rods and ball joints. Everything else has already been replaced in the last year (brakes, wheel bearings, front drive shaft CV joints and axles). Working in the snow always makes it fun as well.

Finished my underbody lights that were in an earlier post by adding them front and rear ( instead of just the sides ) and repositioned the side ones for a better light spread. Happy with result. Probably post a pic when it gets dark....not that it really got light today!

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got yourself an electrical problem!
