    Heater core exploded

    Possible that it was simply a bad core that ruptured when the pressure built up a little? What else could it be?

    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 engine compartment. Was alarming though.

    Heater core exploded

    You’re probably right. Kind of sucks that I have to redo the heater core though. Involves pulling the entire dash and “speaker holder” 🤣. Maybe a good opportunity to weld in some diagonals and re powdercoat it. Off to pick up a new cap then.

    Heater core exploded

    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 through the overflow valve out of the heater box. So I’m sure that the heater core is done. But then when I reroutes the line, everything runs great and the...

    Heater core exploded

    Everything else appears to be fine. No other leaks anywhere and the temp gauge (stock one in the dash) is reading right down the middle at 210.

    Heater core exploded

    Murray from O'Reilly. But it wasn't just a leak. It was literally an explosion. Has to be a plugged line somewhere.

    Heater core exploded

    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 warmed up and then as I came to a stop sign, the heater code blew up. Keep in mind that I just replaced the heater core no more than 50 miles ago. Anyone have any...

    The Official Jeep Wrangler TJ Oxygen (O2) Sensor Thread

    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 hour later, my newly installed heater core blew up and I discovered that my Transfer Case won't shift back into 2wd (probably because of the body lift) :mad...

    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 need to be snugged?

    The Official Jeep Wrangler TJ Oxygen (O2) Sensor Thread

    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. Was much easier to do it with an open end wrench. However, I have now developed a small exhaust leak right at the 1,1 O2 sensor. I can hear it and literally...

    37s with a 4 inch lift

    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 improving my odds of survival by driving my Jeep. Just like wearing a mask in this “pandemic”. But maybe I should invest in a full-on hazmat suit and breathing...

    37s with a 4 inch lift

    i suppose that this post is very telling about who you are and where you are coming from. There is no doubt that you are an accomplished fabricator and clearly know what you are talking about when it comes to race truck fabrication. But saying that the cage is practically useless as a cage is...

    37s with a 4 inch lift

    I actually think that 4"s is pretty ideal for 37's. Here is mine. 3.5” MetalCloak springs and 1.25” body lift. So I guess it’s actually 4.75” if you want to get technical.

    Air intake mod question

    Anyone want to buy a K&N Air Intake System? I have one that I am selling ;) . I took it off because it was too loud for my liking...

    Gas tank skids (A little more clearance?)

    Yea, that's the ultimate goal. But I'm not ready to drop another $1,000+ on that tank. And I am also hearing rumors about Motobilt coming out with a tank to compete with Genright that should be less expensive. Finger's crossed.
