Question about 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee

2 Answers

Coolant leak Hi there does anyone out there know what causes my 1995 Grande Cherokee to leak coolant somewhere along the front of the intake manifold. I've replaced my water pump twice, my radiator, and all of my hoses. I've also had the system pressure tested for leaks. Is there a frost plug on the upper part of the engine at the front, or can the coolant be leaking at front of the intake manifold...?? Once the engine gets to operating temprature and you turn off the vehicle a short while later the coolant begins to leak aroun the area of the front of the intake manifold. Help.....

I believe you and I have the same problem thermostat housing if you look at this diagram on the left http://static.scribd.com/profiles/images/f51od9ss9yyjf-full.jpg it looks like the engine coolant temp sensor connects to it. here is a link for like $10 http://www.rockauto.com/catalog/raframecatalog.php?carcode=1182125&parttype=10337&a=FRc1182125k1268601

You may want to check it with an ultraviolet dye and light kit.You can get a kit from a good auto parts store and do it yourself. They have dyes for every kind of fluid a car has. A very handy tool and not very expensive either.

My 2006 pontiacgrand prix is leaking coolant right above the water pump. There is an L shaped pipe that seems to be where the leak is coming from. Does anyone know what this piece is and how hard it is to...


This was a common issue with these engines. Unfortunately there is no easy way to fix this problem other than to remove the intake manifold and replace this plastic tube along with the intake manifold gasket itself, these engines were common for the intake manifold gaskets leaking and also for that tube to crack over time and start to leak as well.

Like i stated, unfortunately there is no real "easy" fix for your problem. I have replaced many of these tubes and many intake manifold gaskets on these engines. I would not recommend doing it yourself unless you are familiar with these engine, there are special torque specifications for all the bolts. I do know that the intake manifold repair job usually runs somewhere in the ballpark of $800 - $1000 or more depending on where you take it.

Hope this helps...

There is a hose coming from the bottom of the front of the engine that leads to the manifold that apparently sends oil to the manifold. What is this?


That is more than likely a coolant hose and not an oil hose. The cooling systems have what is called a by-pass hose which by-passes the thermostat in the engine allowing enough coolant to flow and warm up thus sending it to your heater core so you get heat inside the car sooner.

I have a 96 grand am and it started leaking coolant from somewhere around the manifold, i can't tell exactly where it's coming from. Does anyone know it that could be the termostat?


If its a v6 engine and the leak is by the intake manifold, then you need to replace the intake manifold gasket. This is a very, very common problem on all of GM's v6 engines. It will cost you about $350-$400 for this repair.

Leaking coolant somewhere below after car is warm and shut off can not find,recently replaced water pump, and it is not the radiator


Does this vehicle have a 3.1 or 3.4L motor. If so they commonly have intake manifold gaskets failures. This leads to coolant leaking, usually at the corners of the intake manifold and in some instances leaking into the oil. Look for signs of coolant leaking at the corners of the intake manifold and check the engine oil for coolant.

How to replace the intake manifold? I have a 96 grand cherokee v8, unable to replace the thermostat housing to the manifold because one of the screw holes cracked off on the manifold.


Position The Intake Manifold Gasket On The Engine.Dowels May Be Provided To Hold The Gasket In Place During Manifold Installation.. The Use Of Silicone Sealer Is Required. Especially Where The Front And The Rear Seals Meet The Side Gaskets On V-type Engines. Installing An Intake Manifold On V-type Engines Can Be Difficult. It Is Critical That You Use Sealer Properly On The Engine To Prevent Vacuum,Coolant, And Oil Leaks.

Start All The Fasteners By Hand Before Tightening. This Will Aid In Bolt Hold Alignment. Then Torque The Intake Manifold Fasteners To Specifications. Use The Specific Torque Pattern Given In The Service Manual.. Basically The Pattern Will Be A Crisscross Pattern

Engine smells like rubber burning and temperature gauge at normal temperature. Water/coolant leaking out of reservoir and needs to be filled ever 2 days. Oil level is normal, but when it's hot outside the...


Generally that smell is caused by an oil leak that is getting on either the exhaust pipe or manifold (doesn't take much to smell). As far as bottle getting low, I've got a 93 that never stays full but only needs coolant in the radiator about once every two months. Been like that for two or three years and has never overheated. I'm sure there is a small leak somewhere, but I'm not driving myself crazy looking for it. Check all hose connections, and look on the ground after being parked overnight...If it's leaking, something will show up. But if the radiator is staying full, just check it when checking oil level.

2000 bonn. super charge intake manifold gasket help please


the gasket you had replaced was the lower intake manifold? this gasket can leak coolant and cause white smoke to come from the exhaust. the exhaust is actually single with dual outlet at muffler. when an engine is getting coolant into the cylinder it burns and causes white smoke much like steam. if the engine is running rough and has the check engine light on then it sounds like you have either a leaking intake manifold or problems with the cylinder head or heads. head(s) could have a bad gasket or a crack. only way for sure to tell is too remove manifold or head(s). call the repair shop and demand to have it looked at again. also have another totally separate repair shop inspect it to have a second opinion.
