Have you had the system pressure tested. The overflow cap will sometimes be the biggest problem overlooked. Overtime the seal will dry out and no longer holds pressure which enables the antifreeze to leak in small amounts over a couple of days or months. It can also cause the car to overheat after it is unable to hold pressure.

What kind of anti freeze do i use for 2000 grand cherokee 6 cyclinder

You must use a 50/50 blend of ethylene-glycol and low mineral content water. This is the ideal solution for Jeep Grand Cherokees within your year. Don't use all water or all antifreeze. You can also use Mopar 5 year antifreeze available at your dealer but it cannot be combined with any other type of anti-freeze so your old anti-freeze will need to be flushed out.

My 2000 Jeep Cherokee has been overheating esp. when my air conditioner is on and im driving up any sort of hill. it also makes a squealing noise for a little bit when my air is on too. A few days ago it...

First when it's cool I'd replace the missing antifreeze. Then I'd have the Serpentine belt checked and/or replaced, while that's being done I'd have the pulleys, adjuster and waterpump checked.

2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee has antifreeze leaking

fill it up and wait for it to leak again. Its about the only way your going to find it for sure. Rev it up and let it get hot in the driveway.

Check your water pump for signs of seepage. Do this with no pressure in the system and cap off. Sometimes in the beginning stages of failure pressurizing the system will drive the seal against the shaft and actually hide the leak. I have seen very small cracks in cylinder heads, especially between the valves that won't show up on a pressure test 'till they get worse. Check the plugs for any coloring from antifreeze.
You are going in the right direction so far, but need to go over everything sometimes a few times before a small leak is found. Keep an eye out for dried or semi-dried stains, especially around the perimeter of the head /block parting line...sometimes small leaks will only leave a slight stain, often white or antifreeze colored powder residue.
Hate to say it, but sometimes when you can't find it, just put some block sealer in there and see if it corrects the problem.I'm a professional but sometimes just doing that saves a big headache for a small problem.

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.

2000 jeep grand cherokee is leaking antifreeze

Have a shop pressure test the cooling system, this will make the leak easier to locate, if I have to guess I would go with a leaking water pump.

No, what you're seeing is the weep hole leaking on the water pump. This is the warning sign that the water pump is worn out. Don't use any stop leak or anything to attempt to stop it. You'll be waisting your time. You'll have to replace water pump at this point.
