    Greetings!

    So i have not done a lot on my jeep lately due to being unemployed but thats not to say I have done nothing on it.

    Before



    Middle



    New part



    Old part



    and all done


    and all of this was done in the parking lot of the auto parts store were I bought the part! When I get some spare money I will upgrade to a hi flow t- stat housing but for now that was the mos available part.


    If the area does not flood this week between job hunt stuff there is a good chance that get some work done on it!

    Greetings XJ Talk ! the last few months between school aand work I have not had much time to work on my jeep. I did have some work done on it by a full time pro mechanic (radiator and batt change). How ever this weekend that changed a little. I started by buying some supplies coolant, coolant system flush/cleaner fluid and misc stuff.

    Then I changed my U-joint on the front diff and got my Astro start working! (I will get a few pics up later) I still need to do the flush and fill but at least i have all the stuff needed now.

    Next up will be brake work in the near future.

    After that photo dump you might be wondering what all I did to it.

    Well here is the list,

    Changed heater core

    Removed black side trim

    Rerouted a couple of wires and my coax cable

    changed the radiator cap

    I now have heat again!!!!! however now my steering wheel is on up side down and the radio will only play cd and tapes no AM or FM plus i cant change the time

    Any one have any idea on how to fix either of those problems?

    The drag link coupler needs to be adjusted to get your steering wheel back to "normal"
    It's just two bolts (near the pitman arm) then rotate that coupler until the steering wheel is where it needs to be.
    Re-tighten, and you're good.



    The radio issue sounds like you need to plug your antenna back into the stereo....
    If its plugged in there, then there is another connection near the glove box or passenger side kick panel. make sure thats fully seated together.





    As for not being able to SET the clock...that just sounds like either user error (sorry) ...or a faulty button. I'd refer to the user manual on the proper technique to set the clock (dont know it off the top of my head) ..... otherwise....
    If its that the clock wont STAY set....
    Then it could be a voltage issue.
    1. Check ignition-off draw fuse. Replace fuse, if required.
    2. Check for loose or corroded radio connector. Repair, if
    required.
    3. Check for battery voltage at radio connector. Repair wiring, if required.
    4. Check for continuity between radio chassis and a known good ground.
    There should be continuity. Repair ground, if required.

    Hope this helps... good luck.

    I got a little bit more work do on my jeep this last weekend nothing real major. No pic due my camera going AWOL (found after the work was done )

    I changed the oil and filter, Diff fluid and got the reusable gasket on like this and changed the axel u-joint on the drivers side front.

    More to come soon but I'm in the last bit of school so i am not sure how much time/money I will have to work on it.
