Question about 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

Where could a coolant leak be that drips from the protecting shield under the radiator on a 2001 jeep grand cherokee limited?

We have to add coolant every week or two as the sensor light come on. I haven't been able to see where it is coming from and it doesn't drip all the time.

The short answer is anywhere above the shield. Look for darker (wet) trails on the front / back of the radiator (where possible) as a sign of a leak origin. Clamps between hoses and radiator openings, thermostat housings, soldered locations such as those around a filler neck, seam, etc. are also candidates for leak locations as well. Inspect the radiator cap too (when cold). Feel along the underside of hoses, support hardware, etc. that slope downward toward the radiator - as coolant may be running along the bottom side of the hose from a different leak origin location. Don't forget that the cooling system is under a small amount of pressure - so a wet spot on the radiator (or anywhere for that matter) could be the result of a stream of coolant that is squirting there - but coming from somewhere else. You could check this after running the engine to normal temperature and shutting it off - then look around for a stream squirting under the hood.

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

coolant come in two versions mixed and unmixed, in unmoixed use half coolant and half water, you can add coolant yourself but do not remove the radiator cap when the engine is hot, its under pressure and dangerous, any good brand coolant will do, then have the system checked for leaks

I have a 2001 jeep grand cherokee losing antifreeze no leaks.


This is a hands on diag. If no leaks can be found then the coolant has to be going out the tailpipe. Chances are you have a cracked head or a cracked block. New gasget only temporarily sealed the crack. But then we are just guessing.

2001 grand cherokee - brand new radiator starts smoking every week - must refill coolant every week but no leaks anywhere. Help!


There is a leak. the coolant is going somewhare. where does it smoke from? thats where to start looking. if it smokes out the tail pipe, it could be coolant and may need a head gasket or head? A shop can tell you if theres a head gasket problem.

Leaking antifreeze


first, remember that any leak will run down...There is nothing near your muffler that contains antifreeze, therefore, what ever is leaking has been blown back there while driving. Open up the hood and look to see where leak is originating. check all hoses, hose connections, radiator, rug under heater in the cab and everything associated with cooling system. You will see antifreeze coming out somewhere. Once you locate the leak, I can help you deal with it. Do not open the radiator when engine is hot! Do not drive with low coolant condition! This is not a solution...yet...I'ts the beginning of one!
