Small leak in a 98 jeep grand cherokee near the bottom pulley on front of engine..what is it?


If its leaking coolant, likely it is coming from the water pump above the lower pulley and running down to there. Look carefully and use a light.
If leak is oil, the pulley seal is leaking.

Bad hoses


The lower radiator hose goes to the water pump, will have to drain radiator to replace it. You should hae 2 heater hoses, if your engine is an inline 6 cylinder one hose will go from the frot of engine by thermostate housing to the firewall and the second hose from the back of engine to firewall

Radiator fan for 2001 Jeep Cherokee


Had this problem and one thing that even Chilton manuals only show in fine print sorta say is that Jeep cherokee has a relay sensor for the coolant fan usualy right behind the passenger or driver side headlight you may have to remove the bumper also its rather easy.Its a liitle black box thats screwd down on the panel just unscrew it unplug it replace mine ran me around $60.00.Before I learned about this after replacing the thermostate and just about to rip out the water pump my buddy told me about the sensor after replacing over a year ago no problems.
