  2. coolant leak...

    I have a coolant leak from the right lower radiator. but the under the radiator cap shows that its full. the overflow is up to level also. I suspect the radiator is clogged. Any recomendations, or know any products that will help UN-clog it ? Think a simple flush would do the trick?
  3. rear end service

    (98 3.0L 4x4) I have alot of "play" in the rear end. when up on the lift, I can move the wheel by hand and notice what I think is too much play. Also have the "cl-clunk" when shifting from park to drive. what is it and what can/should I do?

  8. front hub assembly???

    i just drove the 200 miles home from Vermont last night and about 3/4 of the way home i noticed what i think is the front bearing/hub assembly. it sounds like a grinding noise...kind of.

    OK so i got me a 98 xlt king cab 3.0 4X4 with 211,354 miles and the trannie has one never had a problem and two never (to my knowledge) been flushed or cleaned in any way. so i guess what I would like to know is what trannie IS in my truck? and then what next? pull the pan and clean the filter...

  12. my 98 4X4 and the quest for suspension...

    OK... its been 210,245 miles and never has the stock suspension been replaced or up graded! so i ask this of you guys, what is the least expensive brand that will get the job done, i don't want bottom of the barrel. but what i really want to know is this something i can do in my home garage...
