I really appreciate all the help you guys have given me, but you need to cool down. I'm 22 years old and this car was my dad's baby. Now it's mine and I want to get her running again. I do ALL mechanical work on my jeep, but I guess I'm being extra careful with this thing. I'm sorry if you feel like you have wasted time on me.
I'm paying for college, and trying to maintain 3 cars. I really cant afford taking this car into a shop right now........
ANyway, I just got my new FI thermo. (# 1 287 230 002)
I'm hoping this will finally fix the stupid mixture problem. If it dosent, I wont ever post here again.
as for the install, stevebfl gave me a pretty good idea of what i need to do: "They are easily cleaned/freed up. Drain your coolant and pull the t-stat housing (cylinder) - two screws. With the t-stat removed push on the piston where the t-stat plunger sat. It should be spring loaded up. It should easily push down and spring back. If not remove the other two screws and take the housing to the bench to free up. "
anything else i should know?
I'll let you know how it goes. Peace
