    Default possibility of a TOJ3...

    i have isssues with the TOJ2:
    1. muffler is rubbing on the drive shaft
    2. water pump is now leaking statically
    3. the left rear caliper seized and broke the rotor off the disk.(its incrediable)
    4. fuel lines are broken and need imediate replacement
    5. motor is sucking down an abnormal amount of oil. i dont like it.
    6. tranny is leaking like a dirty sob

    its getting older and really doesnt like the cold. i hope it can hold up through the winter

    However....
    on my way to work, someone is selling a....

    114K white paint is in shit conition but..

    yeah, thats a nice equation....
    rear wheel DOES NOT come off the car+lazy brake change+WNY winter+intense highway use=sickening brake failure.
    later today. ill get pics.

    updates, TOJ is back on the road. fuel lines fixed. new water pump. i dropped the pump driven fan in favour of the MarkVIII electric fan.
    the drive shaft DOES NOT rub on the muffler. thats only because i had the car 2 feet in the air, and the whole suspension had no weight on it.
    getting my "cats" welded on friday night.
    and i still need to fix my rear brake. and get a new tire.
    never ending cycle.

    F&$%^&*()$#%^&*( !!!!!!!!
    so, thanks christ for christmas.

    christmas eve, driving to my parents house and little puffs of steam start coming out of the hood.
    Tis' the season.........

    i thought i blew another intake manifold gasket. i just replaced those in july. so i put a little coolant in it and went with it.

    saturday, at my aunts house for a bday party. went to leave, and flat right rear.
    i have a spare. no jack. no lug wrench. my aunt had to call AAA. and the spare is a donut. looks ridiculous on the car.

    so now im stuck a 40mph with a car thats overheating.
    solution:
    damn near brand new rim and tire ( it matches) from the junkyard: $31.15
    1 gallon of the good anitfreeze: $10.89
    2 feet of 3/4 heater hose: $5.25

    the line going from the waterpump to the heatercore had severed. probably from all the high reving last week while stuck in the snow.

    everything is good.
    colour for next year?

    thank you.
    it looks like things are looking up for the Tank.
    I met one of my old friends from hockey. turns out his dad owns a collision shop/ junkyard.
    I just need an intercepter to make things interesting.

    Default MF'n update!!!!

    uh, i almost wrecked the Tank on the way home today. took an exit ramp, turned left and the back end just walked out on me. and i heard that lovely "flat tire wobble". from where else but......
    ANOTHER FLAT RIGHT REAR. THATS 2 IN 3 WEEKS. THIS IS GETTING RIDICULOUS!!!!!
    im allowed to be upset. now, i cant fix it til wednesday, which means i have to drive the broken jeep to work.
    and now i think the Tank is leaking gas. and my power window/door control thing on the driverside doesnt work anymore. the shift selector came off the steering column again.
    and i really really really need a new crank sensor.
    it truly is the never ending cycle.
    there are times when i wish i had the TOJ I back.........

    if i can get the Tank to get to september, i'll be happy. i dont think im gonna be able to keep it on the road much longer. its (unfortunately) becoming a money pit. everything is breaking, and nothing is working. i think the time of the Tank may be up. i go over to the desert for 4 months in september. it'll probably be coming off the road. i cant take the unreliability of it. it sucks in the winter. S-U-C-K-S. especially up here.
    I have:
    -no left rear brakes
    -no egr pipe
    -no cats, the ghetto way
    -no O2 sensors
    -right rear window doesnt work
    -driverside control panel doesnt work
    -needs an alignment
    -crack in the windshield
    -fuel leak (3rd FN one)
    -left rear tire will not come off. im sure its rusted to the axle
    -the transmission issue in this vehicle just blows
    -drivers side door leaks on me
    -clock randomly works
    -sometimes, the wipers turn on for one swipe if you turn left. and if you turn right while they're on, they may turn off

    :-( maybe considering a subaru wagon.
    but atleast i have a marauder that doesnt work....

    disgruntled,
