Question about 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee
Coolant is leaking from above my waterpump on my 1997 jeep grand cherokee 5.2 liter 318 v8. Its not coming from the thermostat gasket seal, but ther is a large puddle that forms directly under my alternator. This happens worse after shutting my vehicle down. Checked all hoses, replaced thermostat, water outlet pipe and water pump. Is my engine totalled?
It takes a lot more than a small leak to consider your engine as "totaled"
Have the system pressure tested and carefully inspected. Every leak has a source. some are easy to find, some are a bit more difficult. A shop can use a fluorescent dye and a black light to locate the source if you can't.
I'd check the corners of the intake manifold and timing chain housing. Also, check the hoses again. A small pin-hole can squirt coolant far away from the hole itself and is often very difficult to see.
