    That took a little while, though surely worth the wait. Only we can be richer by one ignition switch. Love it

    What can I say? The rewiring really did it. The Jeep now starts super willingly. I did two shorter trips since which went very well. Although on a stop on the first trip it did spit out a little puddle of coolant through the overflow; I guess a little drama is mandatory...
    And of course I took a few pics, so here is one for you!

    That is not unusual. When you stop, the internal parts of the engine will heat up the coolant and since the water pump is not circulating coolant through the radiator - the coolant gets hotter, expands and overflows - maybe it even forms a steam pocket on some especially hot spot. Once it has done that, the coolant has found its own level and everything should be OK. Once things cool down, peek in the radiator and see where the coolant level is. Don't overfill beyond that and it shouldn't burp again.

    That is a very nice picture!
