What happened

Got a tip at work today

Its developed a knock when warming up.
When you first crank it, its fine. When it gets around 1/4 up on the temp gauge it starts knocking. Quiets down some when warmed up though. Only does it at idle.

Fastest DSL I could get here was 3mbps, I currently have 30mbps

I, too am seeking a Jeep Wrangler, although one with less than 50,000 miles and under 5 years old. Hard top.

Living out where I am, there isn't anything available except one small local internet company that provides LOS internet. I'm lucky to get 2 Mbps down, 0.5 up. Unfortunately that's the only thing available here besides Hughes Net and I'm never doing that again. Oh well, I could stand on my roof and shoot at things while naked (never done it) and no one would know so I guess that's one of the tradeoffs.

Welcome to my world, temps are about the same here. However, you're not complaining about wind chill on top of that, so be grateful!
