New Member, New Commander Owner
Just bought my 2006 Commander Limited one week ago. Drove it home nearly 60 miles and was very pleased with the ride. Then all hell broke loose. The car overheated, radiator started leaking out of the bottom, serpentine belt tensioner pulley started knocking. It was as though I was being tested! So, now I have a much better knowledge of the inner workings of the Commander. I did the following:
Changed the thermostat....still overheating.
Flushed and changed the coolant...still overheating.
Purchased and installed new radiator...Will find out tomorrow.
Rounded over the mounting bolt that holds on the tensioner pulley. Had to cut off the bolt head with an angle grinder. Found a new MOPAR bolt at my local Jeep dealer for $2.45. Ordered a new tensioner pulley off of Amazon to save a few bucks.
So, tomorrow is the big day. The bolt should be delivered and I will hook everything back up and fire her up again!!
