someone label my jeep's innards please.....

I'll provide the marker

Ok, I have searched the net, scoured my tech manual, laid under my jeep and stared endlessly at the parts. And, I really really hate to ask this, but as I've said before I'm new to this and I've never worked on a vehicle before. Changing the oil was a big deal to me. Sheew, now that I've admitted that..... are the control arms the same thing as the suspension arms?

Thanks so much, it helps a lot. Everything should be color coded like that

Yeah but think of all the touch up paint you would need to use after a trail ride.

Yeah, but you guys are always makin' up new names and using your secret code, I'm in need of some sort of crib-notes.

(I'm writing it all on the bottom of my shoes just in case there's a test.)

Well, question #4 on the mid term, Is name an important fluid that you should always keep full. Answer is: Blinker Fluid.

It really gets me that more people don't check that one. I always check mine when I change the oil.

I just changed my blinker fluid yesterday. Man, it sure was dirty. Anyone else here using synthetic blinker fluid or is it just me?

I'm so going to have to cheat on this test, but I'm not looking off Scout's paper, sythetic - pfffft. Even I know that rots your spitzer valves.

Hm, was thinking about switching over to that, but i have been using a mix of SAE30 and 3&1 oil with good results, just hate mixing it.

I'm suprised that you guys missed the tech bulletin. It now suggests the use of DOT type 3 blinker fluid.

I bet that wasn't free air, it was the kind you have to pay for

You get better aerodynamics if you wash your rig with a bucket of steam too. The shine is rediculous...................
