August of 2013 I inherited a '98 6x4 diesel gator. My first thought was to try and sell it for $250 as is or give it away. 4 of the 6 tires went flat daily, even with 845 (approximated) cans of fix o flat. It might start with a jump or it wouldn't even make a sound when trying to start it. With advice through this forum, mostly from xcopterdoc (still waiting for the microfiche:)) getting the tech manual and owners manual I replaced the battery AND cables (diesels are a bitch if they don't get their energy), a temp sensor and a relay. It now runs like a champ. If you are just getting started with a gator like I did, ask some questions and get to know how your gator works. It was fun, educational and I got some great advice from the people here. I'll check in from time to time to continue to learn but for now, my gator is healthy. By the way, most of the money was for new wheels and tires once it was running. Now it's SASSY:)
