Re: 95 jeep cherokee 4.0 water pump weep hole leak
If i'm not mistake that's a forward mounted motor... remove the rad to be on the safe side... if a tool slips you can easily damage the rad... i think i may be able to find you a manual... i'll look later tonite.

Very likely coming from the weep hole in the water pump, and dribbling down front of engine.
The weep hole is usually on the hidden side (back) of water punp and not easily seen. follow the trickle.
When water pump begins to leak like that, it means the bearing are wearing, and the seal is giving out as consequense. It will steadliy get worse. Verify the source of leak and replace the water pump if indicated..
This is not something you would typically see. Are you purchasing a rebuilt or new pump? Buying from dealer or after market parts store?
Most major chain parts stores (Pep Boys, Auto Zone, Advance, O'Reilly's, etc. offer a 1 year warranty on they lowest cost pump, and typically a limited lifetime warranty on the higher priced units. If you only got a 90 day warranty, you might want to explore something like I've described above.
It sounds like the water pump . The pump has a small hole in the bottom of it thats there to let you know when the pump seal is leaking its to prevent the pump from failing in a major way at highway speeds where it would do a lot of damage . Most water pumps have this and its called a weep hole . If this is were its leaking you need to have the water pump replaced farly soon the bearing will be the next thing to go
Check belt tension, squeeling is most likely due to belt slippage. Have you noticed any fluid leaking from under your Jeep? Coolant level drop could be from bad water pump, when the pump needs replacing, water flows out of a "weep hole". It could be leaking onto your belt also, causing it to squeel
The coolant is more than likely leaking from the water pump "weep" hole. If you were to remove the water pump pulley you would be able to see the coolant track and weep hole.
The leak is an indicator that the seal and/or bearing is wearing out and the water pump needs to be replaced.
If you have some common tools, time and patience, you would be able to change the pump your self. It requires draining the cooling system, removing accessory brackets and hardware then removing and replacing the water pump.
Good luck, let me know.
No, what you're seeing is the weep hole leaking on the water pump. This is the warning sign that the water pump is worn out. Don't use any stop leak or anything to attempt to stop it. You'll be waisting your time. You'll have to replace water pump at this point.
