Had an interesting day - Replaced the radiator in the Jeep.

As I was getting my daughter ready for school this morning, I get a call from my wife saying that during her 15 minute commute to work the temperature spiked and the check engine light went on as she was pulling into the parking garage.

 

I headed out with some tools, water and thoughts of hope that it wasn't running too long in the red. When I looked at it, the expansion tank was empty and it took a gallon of water. I then started it up and found a pin hole leak in the plastic tank. Hearing no strange noises, we swapped cars and I took it home.

 

Pulling the radiator was a relative easy job. I had the old one removed in less than an hour. Putting it back together went fairly well, I think I spent more time driving to the parts store and waiting in line then the actual repair. :)

 

Broke out the Keter work table. I love that thing! Thanks again Erik and Dan for hooking me up!

Looks like the water pump was taken out during the process. It's leaking past the seal and making some nice drip marks on the garage floor. I'll add replacing water pump to the project list this weekend. Good thing I've replaced it once already. This should be easy!
