Why are parts so hard to find and uber expensive?
Love my Jeep. Don't ever want to get rid of it. But Damn! it's hard to get parts for it that isn't back ordered 3 weeks or more across the country!
I've got a 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited with a 4.7 V8 engine and the ever troublesome QuadraDrive transmission.
Current problem is the car overheating, Engine light on, computer says problem with the cooling system and then gives along list of probabilities. Real helpful. I do know that the fan is not kicking in. I had my radiator replaced a couple of years ago. But the fan not kicking in is new development.
Mechanic say's it's a problem with the fan solenoid.says that you cannot replace individual parts anymore but you have to get the whole assembly. The entire assembly including wire harness costs $1100. That doesn't include labor. Any ideas where I can get these parts and instructions on how to install\replace?
