Thank you for the reply.

I'll replace the coolant tank and I will do a flush or have the dealership do it. I will prob change the water pump in the summer though... and maybe replace everything including the radiator.

If it's only an electric fan, it'll be really easy to pull out but do we have a mechanical one? hmm, I'll have to double check... if not, then even easier to replace water pump.

I'm leaving the A/T fluid as is.... but talk to me more about the transfer case fluid replacement what's the deal with that, as I said, tranny feels strong and I have checked out all the features such as the DSC, etc and they seem to work.

1) Are there major issues with the transfer cases?
2) I'll look for a DYI but if you have one, feel free to please post it along..

EDIT: FOUND A DYI so will probably do that too... but do tell me how the transfer cases are in these vehicles... etc
