    I have noticed that the plastic container is sometimes low after I recently fill it, so I know that there is a leak somewhere, however I can not pin point the problem. The Antifreeze has to be leaking from somewhere.

I know it's pretty tight in there but youre going to have to get under it and use a light to track the leak down. Anything that leaks runs downward (gravity) so all you need to do is follow the wet spot up to where the wet stops. Likely you will find the leak either at a hose connection or the seam between the plastic tank and metal part of the radiator. (tip: take the cap off while looking with vehicle "off"...This relieves the vacuum that develops which may inhibit the leak from showing up. Conversely, pressure in the system can act the same way, causing the leak to stop)

05 jeep cherokee is leaking antifreeze. the car was making a clanking sounds for a few days, that noise has now stopped and it is now over heating and leaking fluid. the heater is also now switching...

It could be the water pump, the air switches from hot to cold because the heater core is the highest point in the cooling system so as you run low on water you lose heat, if the water pump has siezed you are in danger of losing the serpentine belt, so don't wait to get it fixed.

2000 jeep cherokee using too much antifreeze but no sign of leaks

Have you had the system pressure tested. The overflow cap will sometimes be the biggest problem overlooked. Overtime the seal will dry out and no longer holds pressure which enables the antifreeze to leak in small amounts over a couple of days or months. It can also cause the car to overheat after it is unable to hold pressure.

95 grand jeep cherokee check engine light just came on

you should probably drain your radiator and flush it with the hose. You may need to replace the hoses and make sure they are clamped tightly. It wouldn't hurt to put a little stop-leak in the radiator if its a small leak and refill with antifreeze 50/50.

2000 jeep grand cherokee is leaking antifreeze

Have a shop pressure test the cooling system, this will make the leak easier to locate, if I have to guess I would go with a leaking water pump.
