Question about 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

I have a 1996 jeep cherokee 2wd 4.0L and it is leaking coolant quiet heavily from between where engine and trans meet. Top of the trans is dry. Coolant is coming from inside bell housing between engine and trans? Any ideas where this could be coming from?

Yes, in back of your engine block, there two freeze plugs, these plugs hold water or coolant in the block, to replace these freeze plugs, transmission will have to be remove, if your going to get this done, I would also have the rear main seal replace at the same time, should not cost you much labor to do this, due to if it starts to leak oil from there in the future, transmission will have to come out again, this will save you money and time down the road, hope this was very helpful.

Cooling system


Raise the car front end as high as possible with a floor jack, fill the coolant tank to the top, run the engine until it reaches just short of overheating, shut it down and run water over the radiator, this will burp the air out. Repeat as needed. Don't let the coolant recovery tank run dry during procedure.

Oil leak where trans. meets engine. Is this the oil pan gasket? or the rear main seal?


Could be either. It's rather cheap to change the oil pan gasket if you do it yourself. That would be my first route. If its the rear seal you have to pull the trans or engine to replace.

take it to a shop that can pressurize cooling system.They should be able to see where colant is coming from. May be a pinhole in heater hose or maybe a leaking expansion plug.

i have worked on many of jeeps in my time lol. wow i sound old now. this has happened to a couple of them. the only way to make sure the trans is in "fit" condition. is to rifill the trans with fluid, doing so with the engine hot. allow to idle for about 30 min to help heat the trans up and fill. if the prob still cont, then you will have to have the trans serviced. an electrical problem would not cause it to blow fluid, only a mech prob would. if you have further questions email me at mega_muzik@yahoo.com

Likely what you are looking at is where the coolant is dripping, not where it's coming from. I have no idea why if you have an external leak, that it somehow is getting back inside there to get into the oil.(pretty much impossible)
Best guess is that you have a bad water pump that is beginning to leak. If in fact you have coolant in your engine oil as you say you do, most likely cause for that is a blown cylinder head gasket.
If you actually have no idea what is going on there, have a good shop look at it. Leaks lead to overheating which can cost you an engine.

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.

Do you have reverse lights? If not the wires go to the neutral safety switch. You may need to re-wire it to restore operation The haynes manual has a good plug diagram.
