New to California. (Roseville)

Hi,

I'm new to the Roseville area.
I like California but not too sure about my Jeep.
Its been breaking down more than when it was in new york.

Any suggestions for a good auto shop which is reliable and not too heavy on the pocket.

Any help would be appreciated.

You should try asking other jeepers for help in the specific wrangler model forums because itll save you tons of money and they might have had a similar problem. I would help you out but your in sacramento and im in la so were quite a distance from each other. Anyways whats up with your wrangler?

That's easy. Buy a replacement radiator and drive to San Jose with a 12 pack



Seriously, changing a radiator is easy. You need a radiator, coolant, and depending on the year, you may want to change the upper and lower radiator hoses at the same time. Parts wise you're probably looking in the $200 range for everything. That's a guess tho since I haven't priced out Jeep radiators.

Ohh and RUN LIKE HELL from Pepboys .

Watch out.. I might take you up on that.. I do have to come down to San Jose in next couple weeks..

I've just put Bar's or osme thing that seals the leak looks like its working but i'll need to get it changed sooner than later. and it'll be a good way to learn some thing about fixing my jeep too..

You should. Stop leak additives tend to do nothing more than clog up your cooling system.

well if ya come down to SJ, I'd be willing to lend a hand as replacing the radiator is something that I was on planning to do in the future for some preventative maintenance. And I'd like to get an idea of what's going on.

His rig is all better now

New radiator, upper and lower radiator hoses, thermostat, and fixed a leaky power steering reservoir. Jeegar now has the knowledge that he can tackle that job himself as well
