  1. XJ Cherokee Technical Forum
    Greetings; I'm using "CLR" in attempt to improve heater core flow. I hooked up a funnel to 5/8" hose to core, flushed w/water, filled core w/"CLR" & adding a few fresh ounces every couple hours. (the 3/4" extra hose dumps to a jug.) At this minimal flow, I suppose flow direction is moot. It's...
  2. JK Wrangler Technical Forum
    Hi - a bit new to the forum, and never posted before. I've been a proud owner of a 4 door Sahara model (3.8L, V6) since I bought it in '08. It's getting up in miles, close to 150k, but been regularly maintained for the most part. My kid recently brought to one of the local quick lube type...

    Due to recent overheating issues, I've decided to do some cooling system work. I believe my overheating problem may be related to the PO using Bars stopleak in the system and now that crap is all over in there. I think it's plugged up the heater core and probably the radiator to an extent also...
  4. TJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    I know this topic has been discussed hundreds of time and I have read through all the threads I can find but I still can not find what I am looking for. I want to flush the trans by disconnecting the input hose at the radiator and letting the transmission pump pump out the old fluid. When doing...

    Can anyone answer the following questions: 1. Exactly how do you flush the heater core while changing out the radiator and thermostat. I've seen a few different posts but not sure which hoses to run the water hose through. Particuarly when I have the radiator disconnected and the thermostat...

    I've been doing a good amount of research on radiator flushes over the past few weeks and found a quite a few different methods to get it done. I plan on doing the job this weekend, I've come up with some interesting conclusions that I'd like to run past you all. 1) You DON'T need to buy a...

    I have a 1999 Jeep Wrangler TJ 6 Cyl Sport: - 141,000 Miles - Fairly New Water Pump & Radiator (about 10,000 miles) My heater stopped working a year ago or so, and I never have gotten around to fixing it. I looked at a few forums that are on here about Flushing the Heater Core. Here is what I...
  8. ZJ Grand Cherokee Forum
    I looked through the FAQ and searched a bit but could not find a proper write up of this. Since I did this today I thought I could do one. There are no pictures but you don't need any as everything is easily located. What you need - Coolant system flush liquid (optional) - 15L of coolant...

    So - in a nut shell, the heater is not blowing hot. I have decided that the heater core keeps clogging up. I say this becuase: 1. Inlet hose is hot 2. Outlet hose is not 3. I've changed the thermostat (just becuase I have over 160K and figured I'd replace it before it goes bad). 4. I have...

    Hi Guys, I'm doing a few upgrades to the jeep and while I just herculined it I figured I would try to get a little more leg room before I put the seats back in. (I'm 6'7") I bought the Misch 4X4 Bigboy seat extenders and I'm a little confused. I put them in place as the direction indicated...

  14. TJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    I relaced the radiator, rad cap, water pump and thermostat and the vehicle is still running hot, (striaght 6, 4.0 on a 2000). It holds at about 210 while at idol and never gets above 215. But when driving it gets up to the red zone. Sometimes when I make a turn, the temp drops back down to...
  15. Jeep CJ Forum
    My CJ is overheating with coolant overflowing from the radiator. I just replaced the radiator less than 2 years ago. The expansion tank is now nearly overflowing, even after cooled down. My question is... Is it a given that the radiator is the problem? If it's the radiator, I want to upgrade...
  16. TJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    I am interested in getting a set of Flush Mounted Tailights. I have a few questions though: 1) whats a good site to get them 2) do they come clear also (to use for flush mounted reverse lights) 3) what do you do for a plate light? Anyone have pics of this setup, with the reverse lights, or...
