I like sweet smells....

Unless it’s my car/truck/Jeep. Driving the jeep tonight graced me with the sweet summer scent of prestone.

Illustration for article titled I like sweet smells....

Jeep parts are usually pretty inexpensive, except apparently for the radiator. The Mopar unit is nearly $300. This is after having to:

1) change the O2 sensors because the p.o. used Bosch units and jeeps have to have NTK ones.


2) replace all brake soft lines and pads because one of my hoses failed and caused a caliper to seize.

3) replace all tie rod ends, drag link and steering stabilizer to cure a very mild case of death wobble. This was probably unnecessary, but my wife drives this so any DW was unacceptable.

I love the jeep, but this last month has been ridiculous.
