noticed coolant was low last week- steam occured last local drive.  heater core hoses rotted out and failed at Tstat housing. 


great.

both heater core hoses replaced.  its really painful to get the advance guy to just sell you 3' of 3/4" and 5/8" ID HTR hose   :(

got a sticker last week no issues.


seems to have a coolant leak when parked.  must have something to do with pulley squeeking last few months.  probably needs a water pump or something.

was put out back from leaking coolant last week


new lower hose no fix
2nd time around, had to pull the front apart to change water pump, leaking from block interface or somewhere.

got an AC delete pulley and a good coolant flush.

Back to daily duty.

noticed this guy was all over the road at highway speed during the highway cleanup!  have been driving he 49 and CJ a lot more.

Found both ends of the track bar needing service, also found a jam nut loose on one of the drag link ends. 

back in business!
