Remember when I replaced the water pump on the Jeep? Seems I forgot to remove the water and replace it with anti-freeze. Tonight may have been the Jeep’s last ride.

That’s a big no no! You must first remove the water on the jeep water pump when removing it. then what happened next?

I had drained the coolant for the pump replacement. I pressure tested my repair with water and never drained that water out so when our first freeze came my radiator died. I have since replaced the radiator but either the freeze plugs have popped out or the block or head is cracked as antifreeze pours from the back of the engine now. I hope it is just the freeze plugs!
