Good ideas

Will do the jack-it-up & play-with-it thing this weekend.


Meanwhile, I ordered a new PS pump anyway. Just went over 160K, so can't hurt.


Tnx guys;)

I'll take sticky valves for $200

Only about 30K since pump replacement. However, Jeepasauras does spend a lot of time in hibernation, so I'll go with sticky valves. Maybe a good long (gas-expensive) drive will clear things up. I'll...
