Re: Need new key fobs but don't know which ones work?

Can't read the Chrysler P/N on the fob (sorry), but you will need to get each one programed by a locksmith or stealership.
If you have 2 "working" keys you can program up to 2 more yourself.

Re: Oil Pressure??

My '04 WJ I6 "oil pressure" gauge sits at approximately 42#'s no matter if it is at idle or running at freeway speeds. Should I be concerned?

So far, so good. Everything seems fine. I replaced the thermostate with a 180 degree unit and it seems to keep the engine cooler.
It does reach 210 degree mark if I have to sit...

Re: Good radiator replacement

Thanks, xJoshxx. A little late but I appreciate your input.
I was looking for a replacement that I wouldn't have to replace again. I think the all aluminum radiator would have done that.

Re: Ignition is locked up!

First thing to do is lubricate the cylinder. Sounds silly, but get some silicone lube and squirt it into the key hole and then work the key back and forth a few times.
Then check your front wheels...

Re: Good radiator replacement

Thanks for the up date. I am expecting all the parts to be delivered today and hopefully will be replacing all next day off. It will be tough as I have not worked on a car for years. Or longer.

Re: Belt Tensioner

No. It seems to be normal. No cracks. The tensioner is still shiney overall but it has what looks like streeks of rubber around the circumference in a pair of parrell lines broken not solid.

Re: lights "on" with wipers "on"

Do you have rain sensing wipers? When rain is sensed the lights automaticly activate.
Just guessing but it makes sense.

Re: Replaced Cabin Filter

Actually the filter and kit does not come from the factory when purchased new. That's why you have to discard the factory housing.
Don't understand Chryslers way of thinking on this one.

Re: Leeaking on hill only!!!

Check your overflow bottle. I don't understand why it has to be on a hill because the bottle is flat and there should be no difference. Could be a pin size hole.
Good luck.
