Old coolant, water cools just like new coolant/water. The heat transfer properties of water do not change. Trash blocking the inlet the tubes has a huge effect.

Yep! And for some sad but true coming relief, I had to share this:

Re: The Colorado BS thread

I'd better act fast and call the number left on my phone messaging so I don't go to jail for owing a large sum of money to the IRS ... who actually thinks the IRS contacts them through a garbled phone message and wants only paid through prepaid cards and other types of wire services ...lol

Yeah the thing is the "buyer" seems to be taking awhile to produce the cash . I was going to recharge the A/C last week I drove it but decided I'm putting way too much nickle and dime stuff into it plus my time into a vehicle I'm not selling at a price to justify the cost .

Re: The Colorado BS thread

Sounds like what I did! Swapped out the exhaust, new o2 sensors, swapped the entire interior, put the suspension back to stock, replaced the wheels and tires, all new door seals, replaced the battery cables and then sold it for what I bought it for. Basically threw away a few grand, I hate Jeeps.

The real issue is the buyers as you have folks shopping a 20 year old Jeep at $1000 who think they are shopping the lot for $65k new WK. It's constant email questions from tires to mileage...a/c to the radio ...lol...on a $1000 dollar vehicle a reasonable buyer should expect it to have short comings...if not start shopping Ralph Schomp .

Re: The Colorado BS thread

Drove the Jeep to work today...it's been doing this cool thing where it intermittently pukes a bunch of oil out of the dipstick tube. It sits a lot now and I think it's got a ring sticking sometimes. Got a few things to try tho. I'll recheck the ccv system and I have some leftover cleaner from doing g 5.3s that you dump in the cylinder and soak for 3 hrs to clean the rings so I might give that a shot. Itd be really nice to get like 1-2 more years out the engine haha
