So... I noticed a puddle of anti freeze under the jeep today. Took it to the mechanic next door and he tells me to go get the parts and he will fix it for $130. Needs a new water pump. How bad am I being ravaged?
Stu Olson's web site has a good step by step article about changing out a water-pump, which would also include a thermostat. I agree with Clifford, spend the money on tools, if you need them. However, $130.00 is pretty cheap.
