Leaking connector on heater hose on 1994 4.0L Jeep Cherokee sport

The heater hose that goes from the radiator to the firewall is leaking at a connector. I don't know what this part is called to get a replacement part. It looks like some sort of a valve because several hoses are connected to it. It is a black metal, and I can see several small cracks where coolant is leaking.

    The connector on my 1994 Jeep Country (4.0L) is a black plastic part with several male connections for 5/8" hoses that carry the coolant. The top male connection point is broken and has fused inside the hose. The connector must be replaced and I am advised that the part is a dealer order only.

Part you are referring to is your heater control valve. They generally develop small leaks where the actuator arm goes into the assembly. They are generally in the $30 dollar range and can easily be replaced.Don't forget to "top off colant level after repair!

Hi. I have a Jeep Cherokee Limited Edition, V8 4.7L.The heater pipes have been disconnected and I connected them.Water leaking at pipes against firewall

If it's low or out of coolant, you will not have any heat. If it's still leaking, you'll have to try tightening up the hose clamps on the leaky hoses at the firewall. Hopefully the the heater core in the dash is not damaged.

Leaking coolant

There are many possibilities. Look from the resevoir and there will be several hoses. Just check those for cracks, signs of wear or breakage. Its a matter of check all the hoses til you find the one with the crack. Also if the hoses are too old they will get dry and crack and will leak that way too. Hope it helps!

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
