Question about 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

My problem is my radiator started leeking fluid yesterday after i really pushed the car to get to work on time. I got under the car and tittend the two bolts i saw the fluid leeken out of. The leek stopped for the most part but its still leeken alittle. The temp of the engine reads around 200 to 210. Is this normal or should i get it checked out? Also after i tightend the bolts i checked the fluids and both were full to the top. I thought this was weird cause it lost a good puddle of fluid. if you could give me any advice it would be awsome......thank you soooooooooooooooo much!!!! tony

If you have coolant leaking past a bolt, remove the bolt and put silicone gasket maker on the threads and put it back in and tighten it up. The temps you mentioned are normal but after removing and sealing the bolt threads make sure the system is full. Only do that work on a cold engine.

Mitsubishi shogun 1998 model 2.8 over heating no leeks water is blowing back into the overflow bottle when hot

How are you sure it is overheating? Temp gauge? Most likely are stuck thermostat, bad fan thermostat switch, bad fan. bad head gasket. Coolant going into overflow when hot is how that system is suppose to work. As it cools, fluid is drawn back into radiator. It it is not really overheating, bad radiator cap can allow coolant into reservoir more than normal.

My radiator hose popped off today iput it on and my car still over heats

You may have an air pocket with no fluid. This would cause over heating. If you have a recovery tank, it is better to add fluid thru there and not directly in radiator neck.

What would cause 2003 Kia Spectra to overheat after installing a new radiator

Universal Answer, probably an air bubble in the wrong spot - under the thermostat would be the worst outcome. Follow remove air bubble procedures, drill a hole in the thermostat so this cannot ever occur.

The quick fix. Unscrew radiator cap and leave off overnight - hopefully the radiator will 'burp'. Idle for a few mins with cap off. Then replace / cap on and see if this is fixed.

The pessimist. You recently bought this car secondhand. There is a gasket issue where exhaust gas is venting into the water gallery.
Fix will be head gasket repair gunk - but only as a last resort - if teh radiator guys detect c02/gas in the radiator fluid - they have a test kit for same

Just filled up brakefluid....drove 20kms and it's low again. whats the matter?

It has to be leaking somewhere.
Depending on the make model and year, it could be leaking at one of the wheels, or the master cylinder could be leaking into the booster and the engine is sucking the brake fluid into the intake.

I have a 2001 Buick Century. I just had my

One good way to find where a coolant leek is coming from - is - when you get home and the car is good and warmed up - "hot".. Park it up on ramps if you have them.. Right after you shut it off - it will build even more pressure in the cooling system.. At this time car is off - open the hood and look (from under the hood and from under the car if you have ramps) for leeks,, listen for the "hissssss".. If the leek is just to small and/or to difficult to find - take it to a shop or oil change place for a compression test of the cooling system to locate the leek..

Hopefully its just a hose leek..

Good luck..
