  1. wow, very clean, like unreal clean for such an old jeep, haha, we all know how most old jeeps look :) but really congrats on the top 5 and congrats on the true awesomeness of your MJ man, keep it coming.
  2. ill try and do that soon, but as for now I'm just happy to have a running vehicle again.
  3. i replaced the bottle and it runs way better, no more coolant dump. well bottle and cap, found a good one at the JY, great condition. Modern automobiles NEED a thermostat to run properly. Many people simply don't understand that the purpose of the thermostat is to keep the temperature UP, not down. A properly-functioning radiator and cooling system are capable of keeping the temperature well below the temperature needed for optimum combustion -- in fact, often below the minimum temperature for the electronics to switch over to to closed loop operation, meaning the system is reading
  4. i aint got it no more, i took it back out and tossed it, i was frustrated, upset, angry, sad... lots of not good emotions at the time...
  5. it only overheated after i added the thermostat. before that i had no problems whatsoever. drove to hilton head, SC and back from Grovetown, GA. and she went fine the whole time.
  6. just do that over and over and it should stop eventually or once all the air is out?
  7. i would just like to bleed it to be careful you know...
  8. thank you guys. went to the JY and found a good bottle. much better then my current one. so i grabbed it, gonna try it tomorrow. anyone have a pic by pic of how to do the bleed thing?
  9. ok here's how it went, took off housing and there was no thermostat in, so i put one in, the one the auto store gave me, filled with water and drove, drove fine till on the way home. heard a pop sound, not a loud one like a motor component blowing but a little pop, and i saw steam pouring from hood. so i pulled over and opened hood. steam shooting out of reservoir. reservoir cap popped off. got towed home so not to take any risks, when the tow truck came he started it to go up the tow ramp and no issues occured. got home, and took thermostat out. resealed properly, let dry over night, and then
  10. but with a blown head gasket wouldnt i have milky oil or the leak coming from the block? the only leaking is from the reservoir.
  11. so my mj felt like it was running hot, ended up it wasnt, but yeah, so it felt like it was and so i went to change the thermostat, when i took off the housing, there was no thermostat in it at all, so i put one in and sealed it up, let it all dry over night and crap, then i drove with water in it. on the way home it started steaming like crazy and i pulled over. so i took the thermostat back out cause it wasnt letting enough coolant through. now it sealed back up and perfect, no leaks from the housing or the block or the water pump or anything, but the reservoir at the top side of the hood nea
