Sounds like oil leak, Check the valve covers.

    Thanks! Is this something that the mechanic who fixed it should do or should do you think it would be an additional charge? When we looked under the hood we also noticed some fluid coming out of the hose that goes from the radiator to the engine. There is a bolt there and it looks like the fluid is coming out from there and dripping down and burning. would that be oil as well?

    I just looked at some picture and the "bolt" I am referring to is the coolant bleed screw

Probably have bad hood struts/shocks that hold it up. These can be obtained at the usual discount parts stores(Kragen,Autozone, Checker,etc) Usually just pop off on one end of a ball mount and unbolt the other after you have propped up hood. These shocks go bad from time or fluid leaks.

It is most likely your head gasket. Check for antifreeze in your oil and oil in your antifreeze. Or it could also be your intake gasket. Whatever you do. DO NOT put any kind of products like that into your motor. Those are strictly last resort options. Take the Jeep to a garage for an estimate and repairs. Only add those products if you are planning on changing the whole motor out for a new one!

My 04 jeep grand cherokee is smoking from the radiator. the radiator fan doesn't appear to be running. i've had to put more and more coolant in the resivior because it keeps going right through it...

well,probably needs radiator replaced,burning off fluid smoking problem?if not going out exhaust or in oil,have radiator checked-replaced,if fan not running check relay and fuses,might need fan replaced,if you overheat engine to bad you will blow head gaskets and this is costly.check your oil,see if gray and milky,if so blown head gasket and water-antifreeze in oil,if going out exhaust will be blown head gasket inbetween the cylinders,fix radiator and fan first,but check out to see where all fluid is going.

2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee (63,000 mi - V8) Check engine light indicates #1 cylinder misfiring. Spent $$ getting system flushed for carbon residue. Drove 3 weeks, started up, ran rough, and light came on...

The miss,does not just come and go,if it is a engine valve,replace the coil and boot,go from there,if this does not solve the problem,then the injector is gone out,or going out.If it is a engine valve,the miss would never get better,then worse,it would be the same all the time,get him to run a air compression test,get the valves up(close)and see if any air is detected threw the exhaust,or the intake,it will be present if the valve is the problem.
