  1. YJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    I have replaced the thermostat for my 1993 yj. The housing continues to leak via the lower bolt hole. I have tried everything to seal this mfer. There is no cracks that I can see the new housing leaked, the old housing leaks. I have tried two different gaskets, a gasket plus gasket maker, just...
  2. Engines & Drivetrain
    So I have been having a leak in my 97 ZJ for a couple months now. I have changed the water pump, upper and lower rad hoses, and the thermostat and housing and it still leaks when the engine cools down. My next best guess is the timing cover gasket is blown. What I don't know is if I need any...
  3. XJ Cherokee Technical Forum
    Hello, I recently replaced both the thermostat and the temperature sensor, in my 97 xj, country 4wd automatic. The jeep will run fine and for as long as I want if I'm driving staying around 210 degrees. However whenever I stop, and let it idle within 10 minutes the check gauges light comes on...
  4. Jeep CJ Forum
    Folks, I recently was doing a thermostat check/change on my 80 CJ7 and the project immediately turned bad when I snapped off 1 of the 2 bolt heads on the thermostat housing. Efforts to extract the bolt failed (heat,left hand drills, extractors, PB Blaster, vise grips, etc......). I had a list...
  5. YJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    I changed the thermostat and now it won't turnover. Just keeps cranking and I can smell the fuel being delivered. I didn't get all the existing gasket off initially and it leaked coolant from the stat housing so I quit for the night. But not before starting it to move it to the backyard. After...
  6. Jeep CJ Forum
    My thermostat housing has a 3/4" nipple but my heater core has 5/8" nipples. I made 3/4" heater hose work by over-tightening the hose clamps. This just seems wrong though and I can't help but think my thermostat housing with a 258 I-6 used to have a 5/8" nipple and somebody swapped it with one...
  7. YJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    Hi there, I am running a Flex-a-lite model 485 Wrangler X-Treme electric radiator fan and shroud in my 1987 AMC Jeep YJ with the 2.5L throttle body injected 4 cyl engine that has a thermostat housing on it from a 1991 YJ. This thermostat housing has an unused temperature sensor in it for the...
  8. XJ Cherokee Technical Forum
    So I cracked my old water outlet replacing the thermostat recently. I was given the stock 87 outlet and then attempted to put it on, but if I did it would hit the serpentine belt and burn a hole through it. :C As seen here (Pardon the mess the engine needs a steam clean) So they matched this...
  9. XJ Cherokee Technical Forum
    For some reason, my Jeep has a chronic issue of very slowly leaking out of the thermostat housing no matter how I try to seal it. It's only steam, so it's a very tiny gap, but having to top it off every couple weeks is getting old as hell so I'm going to fix it for good this time. So the...
  10. Jeep CJ Forum
    Hello I was wondering if anyone had any tips on installing a water temperature gauge. I have an 85 CJ 7 4.2 Litre. I am not very confident on the factory gauge that it works as it should as it seems that it stays in the same spot most of the time and Jeep does not have an overflow tank. I plan...
