Took this from the YJ forum on here. It's interesting to see what everyone is doing each day in respect to mods, repairs, or general maintenance.
I'll start this one off with a funny story.
Going out on a date tonight and didn't want to make a bad impression by showing up in the RustBucket (YJ) so I decided to tackle my WK's starter problem. Ended up finding out that one of the bolts for the plastic splash guard was gone, and I broke another one taking it off. So now that is sitting in the junk pile in the basement. Checked the starter wires and they were all tight, wiggled them a little and it started right up.
Went to the gas station, got some gas, started up again. So I took it to the car wash.... (the kind where it is on a little rail almost). So I pay and walk outside. **** looked like hell. There were 5 Mexicans trying to push my Jeep while one inside was trying to start it. Meanwhile there was a lady screaming because her Jaguar Coupe was about 3 feet away from the back of my Jeep and coming out fast. Thank god one of those speedy guys jumped in the jaguar and hit the brakes just in time. I ended up opening the hood, pulling on the positive wire, and it started up. Got home and i cycled it 4 times and it was fine.
