Hi Oscar

First: If you have pets, keep them away from the puddle. Antifreeze can kill them. Use sawdust, kitty litter, whatever to soak it up.

Did you see where it was leaking from?

If the shop you mentioned were the ones that replaced it, I'd give them a call, tell them what happened, that you want it TOWED back to their shop to have it done right. Any damage caused by the over heat will be their responsibility too.

Document everything, Dates, times , who talked to, Whether or not your new radiator looks new (or spray painted)

Something isn't right.

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 antifreeze is leaking and its freezin cold?


first find the leak and repair it. second, make sure it does not overheat again or you may also need a thermostat. Your heater will not work when coolant level drops below a certain level. since it's leaking, likely that level has been reached. After repair has been made, re-fill with 50/50 antifreeze mix, with the engine running and heater on full heat to allow air in system to escape. If while filling it begins to overheat and keeps spitting out coolant, replace the thermostat.

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.

1994 Jeep Cherokee Sport is leaking antifreeze in


Its probably the seal around the water pump shaft dried out from sitting. You'll have to replace the water pump. Plan most of a Saturday if you have never done it before.

95 grand jeep cherokee check engine light just came on


you should probably drain your radiator and flush it with the hose. You may need to replace the hoses and make sure they are clamped tightly. It wouldn't hurt to put a little stop-leak in the radiator if its a small leak and refill with antifreeze 50/50.

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!
