    Coolant Drip from Harmonic Balancer ... Water Pump?

    Here's what I have after cleaning all the corrosion out (best I could anyway) ... the electrolysis really took a toll, right on the seal line at that. Guess that's payment for the low-mileage on my Liberty ... it's did lot's of sitting. I'll be hitting it with some JB Weld next & hoping for the...

    Coolant Drip from Harmonic Balancer ... Water Pump?

    Yeah, that was the plan. My worry is that, in my experience, this type of work w/ a Dremel needs to be done with "a level of precision" along with the sanding afterwards ~ else additional areas of the sealing surface could be damaged. This area is difficult to reach & I'm not so sure I can...

    Coolant Drip from Harmonic Balancer ... Water Pump?

    Well, I was knee-deep into the water pump replacement & got stopped cold. I think I see the cause of the leak ... what I'll call pretty moderate pitting / aluminum corrosion at the sealing surface. 2005 w/ only 62k miles! Looking on the water pump seal side, you can literally see the aluminum...

    Coolant Drip from Harmonic Balancer ... Water Pump?

    A bit of a rant here mixed with some personal opinions ... so, I got my parts in (Rockauto) for this job - I went with all Gates brand stuff except for the upper & lower hoses which I got from the dealer (Mopar): GATES CO34753 Thermostat Housing / Water Outlet GATES 43263M Water...

    Coolant Drip from Harmonic Balancer ... Water Pump?

    Yeah ... mechanical fan here; so, lot's to take off. I just replaced the tensioner and belt less that 1k miles ago - didn't need it, purely preventative. I suspect I'll replace the stat while I'm in there. Joy. =/

    Coolant Drip from Harmonic Balancer ... Water Pump?

    2005 Liberty 4x4 ... 62k miles. It's basically a spare ride nowadays, I don't drive it very often. However, last week, I had to drive it everyday as I had to do some work on my primary. Anyway, after being parked again for a day or so, I noticed a drip on the driveway. Looked underneath and I...

    2005 TMPS Problem w/ "Spare Low Pressure"

    2005 Liberty Limited here w/ the "dumb" (or base) TPMS system ... So I started getting the "Check TPM System" on the EVIC w/ the Tire Light steady on the dash. I figured at 16-yrs old, one (or more) of the sensors took a dump. So, I replaced all five (5) with new DENSO 550-3008 sensors...

    First (for me) Oil Change ....

    I'm on my 2nd Liberty ... both bought at auction (salvage) . The first I repaired & sold off ... never had to change the oil. My current I decided to keep for a while (low mileage) & just finished it up. It's last oil change was in 2019, so I figured it was time. Man is that oil filter in a...

    EVIC "CHECK TPM SYSTEM" on a 2005 Liberty

    Nah ... I've never seen a pressure read out (or figured out how to get it to show). I'm assuming I'll need the magnet method too ... as I don't see a "trigger" or "transponder" in 3 of the 4 wheel wells.

    EVIC "CHECK TPM SYSTEM" on a 2005 Liberty

    So I have an early build (7/2004) 2005 model Liberty Limited. The Jeep hasn't been driven much lately; last I took it out I got a warning for low tire pressure at the spare tire. Corrected that & the dash light went off. Drove down the road a bit, then the light came back on the dash & the EVIC...

    Green O-Ring on Front Diff Drain Plug ...

    So I was changing the oil in my front diff today .. found a few things odd. 1) both the fill plug "and" the drain plug were only finger tight, & 2) The drain plug has a "green" (or what was green) o-ring. This green o-ring is trashed & I need to replace it. Looks like the MOPAR P/N is 5066055AA...

    axles fluid

    2005 here ... I run 80W-90 Dino in the front axle. I run 75W-140 Syn in the rear axle - for no other reason than mine had the factory "tow package". I rarely tow anything, but the manuals are ambiguous. It says 75W-90 Dino if you don't tow - but what if you happen to tow "once"?? So, what the...

    Soft Brake Pedal after Brake Fluid Flush (non-ABS)

    2005 Liberty Limited 4x4 (non-ABS) So I vacuum flushed my brake fluid yesterday ... I used the 'ole Harbor Freight Pneumatic Vacuum Bleeder. The fluid was dark - Coca-Cola for sure. Anyway, all went reasonably well. With the engine off, I have a nice firm brake pedal - but, when I crank it up...

    Set of 5 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 16x8 MOAB Wheels YJ KJ XJ

    I think I wayyy overpaid for my set ... heck, when I was looking for them, I couldn't find anybody who had them for sale! I figured they'd be an easy sell ... not so much. :icon_sad:

    Set of 5 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 16x8 MOAB Wheels YJ KJ XJ

    LOL ... I'd refer you back to my shipping statement in the ad ... I'd really have no problem doing so; but, I just do not have any packing material(s) that would satisfy me that the rims would not be damaged in transit. Finding such materials on my own is just not economically justifiable for me.

    Yes sir, there's one very close to me ... they'd be unboxed & I assume the staff would know what to do with them?
