Coolant leak on 2004 grand cherokee 4.0

I found coolant dripping under the jeep right at the end of the oil pan right behind the crankcase pulley. hard to see if the water pump may be leaking, causing it to run down the front of the block down to the oil pan. with the serpentine belt & all the pulleys in the way, I can still see a small section on the front of the block which appears to be somewhat wet. However, I don't see a stream of coolant leaking while its running, but its directly underneath dripping on the ground. Do you think its the water pump or could I have a more serious issue?

    Thanks for your response. It turned out to be the water pump. I had gone back out to inspect & let it run for a while & finally saw a small stream leak here & there from the area behind the water pump.

Might be the thermostat housing to as its right above the water pump. the best bet would be to pressure test the cooling system and inspect to see where its coming from

Sounds like the rear main oil seal on your motor is leaking. In order for it to be replaced, the transmission has to be removed. Not an easy task for the backyard mechanic.

if you have no external leaks then it sounds like you could have a possible leak into the oil system(you would have a milky look to the oil) or the head gasket may have a small leak and the car is burning coolant but not big enough to overheat yet.you should have the system pressure tested as you could have an external leak small enough that the heat of the motor could be drying it before it accumulates enough to drip off the motor and yet smell.also the heater core could have a small leak in it and not show a leak.

1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee, leaking coolant from what looks like the front of the oil pan, is that possiable?


not unless you have coolant in your oil(it would look like chocolate milk on your dip stick) its probably leaking out somewhere up above and dripping down to that spot where your finding it. wipe everything down, start the engine and watch it as it runs to see if you can identify its point of origin.my guess would be the radiator hose or the thermostat housing. hope this helps

After placing jeep in park and turning off car I hear a sizzling sound behind driver side tire


Hi:
Hopefully, what you are hearing is something leaking onto the hot exhaust of your Jeep. If this is the case, it is most likely a coolant leak, because if it was an oil leak or power steering leak, it would smell like burning oil. This is just my best guess here, so first and formost, check the level of your coolant when the jeep is cool. If you park on a good clean surface after driving it, see if you can see any drips that would give you a clue as to what might be leaking. Lastly, check under the hood too and look for any evidence of leaking. Be very careful if you are doing this on a hot engine. With a little bit of patience, you might find the problem.
I hope you get a cheap fix!

Likely what you are looking at is where the coolant is dripping, not where it's coming from. I have no idea why if you have an external leak, that it somehow is getting back inside there to get into the oil.(pretty much impossible)
Best guess is that you have a bad water pump that is beginning to leak. If in fact you have coolant in your engine oil as you say you do, most likely cause for that is a blown cylinder head gasket.
If you actually have no idea what is going on there, have a good shop look at it. Leaks lead to overheating which can cost you an engine.

Gas in the oil


Probably a leaking fuel injector. Pull the spark plugs and see which plug is dark and wet and smells of fresh fuel. That cylinder's fuel injector should be pulled and checked for leakage. Gas will drip from the injector and seep past the piston rings where it ends up in the crankcase and dilutes the oil.
