The oil and water will not mix so when you pull your dipstick out you will actually see water spots on the dipstick.  If there is a lot of antifreeze/water in the oil it actually gets kinda a funky color to it because of the green antifreeze (believe me you can't mistake it when it has a lot of coolant in there).   Did the previous expert answer everything except this last question?  If not, let me know what other questions you have and I will do my best to help you out.  Thanks for an honest rating and for using FixYa.

Hi,

Go to the auto parts store and get some radiator stop leak... That is the easy fix, and should be permanent. Cost about 8 bucks

if that small metal tube is attached to a metal piece where the big upper hose connect it's your thermostat housing. The new housing would cost about $20 and you'll want to replace the thermostat while you're in there. So you're probably looking at about $40 parts including coolant to refill and maybe a half hours time to unbolt it and do the swap. Your housing may not be leaking and it maybe just the gasket under it. When you take it off look closely you should be able to see the crack. That's the only small metal tube I know of that connects to a rubber hose. There's a large metal tube that connects to the lower radiatior hose from the water pump if leaking from there check the hose and clamp for tightness. A water pump if needed would cost about $40 and take about 3 hours to do. Neither of these is hard but they're also not the most fun thing to do. ank I'd check for external coolant leaks...drips or white powdery buildup around the waterpump or hoses.

To check the waterpump take off the timing belt cover(its plastic) and get a mirror or look at it with a good flashlight.

Check your oil and make sure there isnt any coolant in there either...that would mean you have even more to worry about than another head gasket!
Thank You

Why radiator wont hold water


Is your antifreeze leaking on the ground in the front of the motor ? There are many different things to do to find the right answer to this question. 1 : pull the motor dipstick. If oil mixes with the water - antifreeze the dipstick will look milky. If it does not. And looks good. Then 2: with water in the radiator don't put antifreeze in it keeps wasting $$ til leak is found. 3 : start motor look from under the front of the water pump with a flashlight if you have a dripping from a weep hole in the water pump bottom behind the fan. If you can't find a leak shut off the motor. Feel the bottom of the water pump if there is a presence of water you'll need a new one. If not .4:if the motor is over heating or has been blowing antifreeze out of the overflow hose along the side of the radiator. If so the thermostat may be stuck. Much cheaper repair.

Why does my jeep cherokee over heat while im idleing


Easy checks first:Does it have antifreeze/water mixture in the radiator.If it has an electric fan, does it turn on?Is there any antifreeze drip from the water pump?
Sometimes the impeller shaft in the water pump breaks and therefore does not circulate the coolant.

04 jeep cherokee 6cyl. We replaced the radiator last year, we have noticed the truck has been using more than normal amounts of antifreeze. When I drove to work the other day all the antifreeze leaked out(...


Your water pump went out. The sound was the bairings in side the water pump. The leak is from the seal also going out on the pump and it will leak all the fluid out. Replace the water pump.

My 1996 Jeep Cherokee Classic 4.0L has a small antifreeze leak, appears to be coming from bottom left (left side that is when facing it) corner of oil cooling assembly (I think it's the oil cooling...


Hmm I don't recall 4.0 having oil coolers be way to be sure is to buy a coolant pressure tester fill the sytem (with water don't waste new coolant) and pressurize it. The most common coolant leaks on 4.0 engine that I see r from the rad and the water pump.
