In this video I’ll show you how to change a car thermostat on a Jeep cherokee 4.0L I6 engine although all jeep straight six engines will be the same and many others will be similar if not the same.

Film on Chevy’s new improved truck axles for 1936 explains how car axles work in general.
Reupload of a previously uploaded film with improved video & sound.
Public domain film from the Library of Congress Prelinger Archives, slightly cropped to remove uneven edges, with the aspect ratio corrected, and one-pass brightness-contrast-color correction & mild video noise reduction applied.
The soundtrack was also processed with volume normalization, noise reduction, clipping reduction, and/or equalization (the resulting sound, though not perfect, is far less noisy than the original).
An axle is a central shaft for a rotating wheel or gear. On wheeled vehicles, the axle may be fixed to the wheels, rotating with them, or fixed to the vehicle, with the wheels rotating around the axle. In the former case, bearings or bushings are provided at the mounting points where the axle is supported. In the latter case, a bearing or bushing sits inside a central hole in the wheel to allow the wheel or gear to rotate around the axle. Sometimes, especially on bicycles, the latter type axle is referred to as a spindle.
On cars and trucks, several senses of the word “axle” occur in casual usage, referring to the shaft itself, its housing, or simply any transverse pair of wheels. Strictly speaking, a shaft which rotates with the wheel, being either bolted or splined in fixed relation to it, is called an “axle” or “axle shaft”. However, in looser usage an entire assembly including the surrounding “axle housing” (typically a casting) is also called an “axle”.
An even broader (somewhat figurative) sense of the word refers to every pair of parallel wheels on opposite sides of the vehicle, regardless of their mechanical connection to each other and to the vehicle frame or body. Thus, transverse pairs of wheels in an independent suspension may be called “an axle” in some contexts. This very loose definition of “axle” is often used in assessing toll roads or vehicle taxes, and is taken as a rough proxy for the overall weight-bearing capacity of a vehicle, and its potential for causing wear or damage to roadway surfaces.
Axles are an integral component of most practical wheeled vehicles. In a live-axle suspension system, the axles serve to transmit driving torque to the wheel, as well as to maintain the position of the wheels relative to each other and to the vehicle body. The axles in this system must also bear the weight of the vehicle plus any cargo. A non-driving axle, such as the front beam axle in heavy duty trucks and some 2-wheel drive light trucks and vans, will have no shaft, and serves only as a suspension and steering component. Conversely, many front wheel drive cars have a solid rear beam axle.
In other types of suspension systems, the axles serve only to transmit driving torque to the wheels; the position and angle of the wheel hubs is an independent function of the suspension system. This is typical of the independent suspension found on most newer cars and SUV’s, and on the front of many light trucks. These systems still have a differential, but it will not have attached axle housing tubes. It may be attached to the vehicle frame or body, or integral in a transaxle. The axle shafts (usually constant velocity type) then transmit driving torque to the wheels. Like a full floating axle system, the drive shafts in a front wheel drive independent suspension system do not support any vehicle weight…
Here’s what’s inside the fuel pump and how it works on your car.
The fuel pump, or fuel sender unit, is responsible for sending pressurized fuel to the fuel rail on the engine. It is normally situated inside the gas tank, cooled by surrounding fuel.
The fuel pump assembly consists of an electric DC motor with a paddle, a pickup screen, float, tank level sensing unit, filter, pressure regulator as well as the empty level sensor.
The DC motor drawings fuel through a turning paddle in through the housing of the motor, past the rotors and brushes out the top.
Fuel then saturates the filter, where it can then make its way up the top to the fuel line leading to the engine. Excess pressure built up in the filter is bled off through a pressure regulator valve at the bottom of the assembly, where the fuel is returned to the tank.
The tank float attaches to an arm that attaches to a metal head. The head moves in a semi circular pattern against a circuit board with printed resistors. The measured resistance values are relayed back to the instrument cluster to determine fuel amount.
The empty level sensor is a device that looks like a resistor. When submerged in fluid, it reads 2K ohms. When dry, it reads an open circuit and turns the light on the dashboard warning of low fuel in the tank.
Assembly of these components are held together by plastic pieces which are clipped together. Often these require disassembly when replacing defective pump units, as only the motor needs to be replaced.
The fuel pump in this video was removed from a 2001 Toyota Corolla.

I have been driving diesels for years, this winter has came really late so I got caught being lazy and not putting in my fuel additive. Hopefully no damage was caused. I will explain in this how it happens what to do to prevent it and also what to do if it does happen to you.
