Did you notice the engine started running super strong? Feel like the brakes were extra hard to push?

Just a shot in the dark...

The jeep has been running strong since I changed the plugs and sensors. Brakes seemed normal. The jeep was driving 100% normal when this happened today.

Some girls at my college put & left my jeep in neutral in the parking garage one night...after, & I quote:

"omg, you have a jeep? That's crazy, me & my friend like totally sat in a jeep with no doors in the garage one night & like shifted gears & took pictures"

....I will say, I did manage to stay calm when I heard this & thankfully the jeep didn't move much

I wouldn't be permanently mixing it only to flush out the water in it. Thinking about it I am just going to pick up about $40 of ATF+4 and keep flushing until no water comes out. The hard part is that the temperature has dropped down to hover around 0c at night.

It only takes just over 1 quarts to fill it so if you bought four quarts you'd have two flushes and a refill.

Is the gas that's in it still vaguely useable? ... just go for a drive.

They get such crappy MPG that it doesn't take THAT long to run a full tank through it, then you fill up again with fresh gas and you're done!

(Getting to the top of the tank where all the plumbing goes in is a huge PITA.)

33 Miles on my Jeep!

That's right - talk about low miles!



Seriously though, this is how I spent my Veteran's Day.

Remembering my brothers and sisters who have gone before, and those who are still serving. Thank you all.

Semper Fi,
Jim

I've seen guys cut out a hole in the floor right above the opening I the tank then self tap plate right over for future fuel jobs. I would do that if I needed to
