Question about 2005 Jeep Liberty

1 Answer

My 2005 jeep liberty is not running hot and the engine light is not on,.However yesterday while i was driving there was a rumbling or grinding noise and steam came from under the hood. I park the car and a little coolant came out and it has been a sow drip all night. I looked under the jeep and saw that it was coming from the middle. Can you help me identify what it is?

Firstly do not use the car, it is either the water pump or the thermostat, sounds like the thermostat as you said it showed no signs of overheating. check that first as that is the cheapest part. if it is the water pump then again this might cause it to suddenly bubble up as the water is not been sent through the rad to cool. that rumbbling noise is the hot water and air, this will blow the head gasket and would be very expensive to get fixed.

Finally and quite unlikely the radiator could be blocked, doubtful but again worth a check, I would go for the water pump though as you said the water is coming from the middle of the engine. do be aware though that water could have came from the water bottle where you put it in. So would suggest the thermostat again.

Hope this helps

    I'm havering a similar problem with my 2002 liberty. Today when I pulled in to work and turned off the engine I heard a bubbling sound, popped the hood and the over flow resivor was going crazy. Then I notice a good amount of coolant fluid coming down near the fire wall of the engine. I thought it was the water pump cause I have noticed a small amount of coolant leaking and my heater not working anymore. Could it be the thermostat or the return hose and not the pump?
