    Possible that it was simply a bad core that ruptured when the pressure built up a little? What else could it be?
  • Rock Toy
    It wasn’t that bad. I had just cleaned and sealed the box up pretty nice so the majority of the pressure went out the vent into the...

    You’re probably right. Kind of sucks that I have to redo the heater core though. Involves pulling the entire dash and “speaker holder”...

    Sometimes new parts are defective and just fail right away. Unfortunately, that happens. Replace the cap no matter what, they are cheap.

    Right. I can’t imagine what it is then. If When I was filling the radiator with the motor off after the core blew, the water would exit...

    Murray from O'Reilly. But it wasn't just a leak. It was literally an explosion. Has to be a plugged line somewhere.
  • Rock Toy
    This is not my day. I just finished doing some work on the TJ (O2 sensors) and took it for a spin around the neighborhood. Motor got...
  • Rock Toy
    Pulled the bolts and then reset the flange and tightened it all up. Leak is gone and Jeep runs great with the new 02 sensors. But half...
  • Rock Toy
    Yea, I just found it odd that the leak would develop right after I swapped out the plug. Any idea how tight the exhaust flange bolts...
  • Rock Toy
    So I just changed out all 4 sensors on my 2005 4.0. Went super smoothly and although I bought the special socket wrench, didn’t use it...

    I prefer to think of it as a speaker rack. And it still protects me more than the lap belts in my convertible NOVA so in my book, I’m...
