Back to Pt 1: BAD Car Karma! Botched Job Recovery! Jeep Wrangler 3.6 Pentastar https://youtu.be/W1pif3Wh8lI
Today we have a Jeep Wrangler Sahara with the 3.6 Pentastar engine. The customer states engine oil is leaking and it is a large leak. We placed the jeep in service mode and began the inspection. It was found that engine oil was leaking off of the valve covers, after lifting the jeep, we found more oil on the back side of the engine and on the transmission. The intake manifold was removed and then the lower intake manifold was removed. Engine oil was found pooling up in the valley between the cylinder heads. The oil cooler assembly was then removed and inspected for leak sources. The o rings were found to be deformed and leaking engine oil. This video is part two which features the installation of a Dorman Oil Cooler Assembly as well as valve cover gaskets, PCV fittings and a replacement lower intake manifold.

    Sir: Editing flubs (done by others) do not change the information we receive , the interest in the project or the process. It is no big deal.

    I hope the nit pickers spend hours and hours going over your videos frame by frame and word by word.
    Great catch for Dave! He caught a 10 MM wobbly attempting to escape. Achievement earned!

    You need to stop throwing cans at poor dave ! He's going to demand hazard pay and body armor if you don't stop!

    How do you charge out the spare parts you have laying around? do you charge as new with a discount, or do you make up your own price, or do you even charge at all? I would assume you would want to get some kind of parts value out of it, but it's also not like the customer is buying a brand new part…

    It's always a great day when Mahle-brand gaskets are used in an engine repair. Our shop lost confidence in Felpro, we've had too many defects from cheaply made gaskets.

    I have used vacuum plugs to cover alternator to battery cable studs.

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars @terryriley2758 says:

    REEEEE Really upset you didn't replace the rubber cover on the alternator connection! You could have eaisily traveled to the Amazon rain forest where you could find a rubber tree in just a few days searching. Once you have found a rubber tree, you find a patch of hardened sap, slice off the hardened exterior to obtain the soft, liquid sap underneath. Use a knife to slice off the excess layers of hardened sap.

    Make a small hole where you've cut off the rough exterior, using a knife to assist in inserting a tapping spout.

    Hang a bucket on the hook of the tapping spout and leave it in place until you have collected a reasonable amount of sap. If you fail to collect the sap on the first tap, repeat the entire process again.

    Then find a Morning Glory plant. Extract the juice from the Morning Glory by simply breaking its vines and drawing the juice out.

    Mix the sap obtained from the tree and the Morning Glory juice.

    Using a wooden stick, stir the mixture. Stir until it becomes thick and sticky.
    Then carve a mold from the wood of any coconut tree in the precise shape of the rubber cover you need for the alternator connection. Pour the uncured latex into the mold and wait until it cures. It may take a few attemps to get it right.
    Why you allowed this blatant safety hazard to go undone is beyond me, when the fix is so simple. Have a great day!

    That tape, is a sealant. Its the modern version of hemp. BUT, you only need just enough it seals, if you mean it to good, use to much of that band. It will not seal at all.

    Plastic Jeeps used to be pink and were driven by little girls. I think I'll keep fixing my Cj7.

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars @davidhenderson585 says:

    Ray, I don't see how that unit cools oil with either version. It is squished in to a completely sealed area where the airflow must be almost nothing. Seems to be an oil heater, causing components to deform and warp. No wonder Junkstar engines are so unreliable. Yet the uninformed public keeps buying the Chrysler Junk. Bad for the consumer, good for the mechanic that has to work on the C RAP. Good job Ray

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars @chrisbutler5834 says:

    I don't care what type of oil it is As long as it's 5w20 for my vehicle.

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars @lawrencecavens5760 says:

    A job like this would cost how much Time wise ? I'm guessing about 8.5 hours to 10.5 hours. Or am I wrong?

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars @brucecampbell3062 says:

    Most oils are very good, just change oil every 3000 miles using non synthetic, 5000 miles with synthetic. What price do you wish to spend 😅

    As you get older you eventually learn in life that no matter what you say or do, or how you do things, there will always be someone who dislikes you. Life is too short to worry about haters and petty nonsense. None of those people would even know you exist if it weren't for YT and the internet. Nothing they say will change your life or how you do things so why worry about their crying Ray?

    I'm starting to wonder if jeep dealerships can't retain good technicians.. I've had nothing but crap service at 2 different dealerships that couldn't fix an evap leak, I ended up fixing it while it's still under warranty.

    I'm such a shade tree mechanic after watching you working……
    One day tho…you will find yourself at the point where you say:
    "I give up, it's time to retire and start enjoying life again."
    By that time sir, your children will be all grown up….your wife suddenly gets more purdy..lol
    and you will still be doing stuff that most girls cannot do….and feel like a servant to her. haha

    Part 1 provided all the bits most of us watch Ray for. Getting triggered by oddities in the editing is peculiar at best.

    Dear, Ray, I hope I didn't hurt your feelings or what. I really hope my comment was constructive.
    As you explained, there was no intention at all, I was affraid you wanted to start a "new style". I'm glad, you are not. 😀
    Apology totally accepted.
    <3
    So happy now it's fixed.
    Finally enjoyable again 🙂 ♥
