Drove to a place I didnt want to go and bought my fastman throttle body. Also started the emails about possibly lifting the WJ and coming closer to deciding on duratracs or grabber at2s...

Decided to drop my driver side exhaust manifold off at the machine shop so they could make it perfectly flush for me at a fraction of the cost of a new one. Also picked up a new gasket at autozone along with some engine cleaning supplies. The "exhaust manifold bolt kit" that they had in stock looked nothing like the bolts that I took out. Is this going to be something I find at the dealership only?

Found out that my radiator was shot and caused my jeep 4.0 to overheat. ON the inside, there was a section that also houses the transmission fluid and the barrier between coolant and transfluid had been opened.

Our mechanic replaced the radiator, did a flush of the coolant twice, and flushed about 14 qt's of trans fluid.

I gave it a 300 mile drive yesterday to drop my sister off at college and the trans drives mych better since the flush. My mechanic is going to flush the trans 1 more time to be sure he got everything out

Anyone have this happen?

So your saying you had water in the tranny? And atf in the radiator?

I have a leak in my radiator and will be changing soon, just wanting to know what I'm up against if there are any weird problems like you mention.

He said the coolant looked like a chocalate milkshake

I got all 6 shock supports from advanced auto and I think they ranged from 15-20 each. Work great so far.

Instead, I got to pay $17 FedEx ground that takes a week on am $18 part that fits in a ziploc. Ok, just needed to get that out
Kolak sells his own bushing sleeves and if I recall correctly they are cheaper than KOR's. He used to sell KOR's but not anymore. Probably due to cost reasons. If its not too late you can email him for a quote and cancel your order with KOR. I have had kolaks since I installed aftermarket shocks and have never had clunks. Just another idea.
