Two motors in one week! What a road trip!
After being relocated, I drove my TJ cross-country. Plan was, Seattle, to Mississippi to Illinois. Should have only taken a week and half, two weeks. In Missouri, a small knock, turned into a big knock, and in less than 24 hours from the first noise, blew out my motor! Thank goodness the small town had a dealer. In three days, they ordered a motor, had it installed, and I was back on the road. Kudos to them! When I got to Mississippi, I was hearing a new noise, sounded like the belt, so I went to get some spray to see if I could quick fix it. Before I could spray it on, the noise went away. It was also covering up another sound. A new knock! Took it to dodge the next day. Motor replacement! This one took over a week. I'm not sure what they were doing, but at least it was under warranty this time. So I'm finally here where I belong, a little later than I planned, but in one piece. Looking forward to the summer!!
