The fan relay of WJ's is located under the bumper,calls for like 2.5 hours to change it.Most just take out the R/F headlight assembly and cut a hole in the headlight support to gain access to the relay.Then it takes like 20mins to change.I can't see how replacing an e fan would be hard. (it's easy on the KJ, even if you have to remove the HD fan) Does your WJ have an aux mechanical fan?

That is part of the R&I for replacing that part,but the bumper has to copme off also and no it's not a easy task(well not hard just takes alot of time).I've done so many it takes me less then 10mins to swap that relay.Why not just take off the headlight support pannal than cutting a hole into it, is easy to take off
Just did a drain/fill of the coolant on Sunday. Each of the last 3 days I have had to add more coolant to the reservoir. There are no drips underneath the jeep, and I changed the oil yesterday and there was none mixed in. Where am I losing it?
Ive heard that you dont want to use the drainplug on the rad since its plastic and wont seal right. Take off the hoses and run water through the rad and block to flush it out.
Which hoses should I take off? And where should I put the garden hose when running water through the system? Sorry for so many questions. The cooling system in the KJ (and any vehicle, for that matter) is something that I've had a hard time wrapping my head completely around.
Thank you so much!
so yesterday I drained the old coolant, used a zerex flush solution and then flushed a with about 4 gallons of distilled water just to be safe. Then I waited till it was a little trickle of water coming out, and put in new g-05 mix (which is clear new?) but was only able to put about 2 gal in. I ran engine with overflow cap off and have now driven up the canyon to my job at the ski resort twice now and the levels have not gone down. any thoughts? just didn't drain the rest of water? open up drain **** and pour new mix in until all four gallons in? or test ph? Sorry was my first time doing a coolant flush on this jeep, thanks for any help.atriot:
I did not remove the lower radiator hose, I just opened the drain at the bottom drivers side of the radiator. I will check the hose when I go start my car in a couple of hours. yea i just grabbed 4 gal of the 50/50 zerex mix cause I am lazy.(welcome)
Did you remove the lower radiator hose? That would ensure the block and the radiator would both drain most of the coolant. Also, when the Jeep is up to temp is the upper radiator hose warm/hot? If not then there's an air lock in the system somewhere.
The system takes a total of 14 quarts so you'll need almost 2 gallons each of distilled water and Zerex G-05 (which is clear, yes.) So if you put in 2 gallons of coolant and you flushed with the distilled water and about 2 gallons stayed in the system you should have an approximate 50/50 water/coolant mix.
Check that upper radiator hose when warm, look at the coolant level in the reservoir and report back.
Ah, good luck with that Prestone in there opcorn:
