1996 Grand Cherokee with coolant leak

Hi,

My problems started approx. 3 weeks ago with:

a) the bracket holding the power steering pulley to the block breaking.

this was fixed and a week later

b) the actual power steering pulley broke off.

a new pulley was put in along with a new water pump

Now, I am leaking coolant - it looks like fluid is condensing on the outside of some of the hoses that exit from the chassis where the coolant appears to go. Any ideas? Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!

They make a uv dye you can put in there and run it till it leaks and you put on the glasses and shine the light that comes in the kit arund and where it is leaking will glow but it sounds like the leaks are just the rad hoses or heater core hoses

I own a 2002 jeep grand Cherokee Laredo. Bought it 2 months ago knowing it had a heater core that would need to be fixed eventually. Driving down the expressway 2 weeks ago it stopped running, had it towed...


Hi there cristina bam! If the core was bad it may have been leaking. Many newer cars on the road these days have a sensor specifically made to monitor the coolant level. If the collant has leaked out there is a very probale chance that the sensor is preventing your Jeep from starting to prevent damage. Add enough fluid to the coolant system to fill the motor block and radiator. If it starts it was the fluid level, if not, there is a greater underlying issue at hand. I really hope that this helps you out and if i was of some assistance please rate my solution. Have a great day!

Drive belt came off pulley loose on 2007 jeep grand laredo


The center pully is the IDLER PULLEY.
It is also referred to as the TENSIONER.

It has a coiled spring that creates the belt tension. Replace it ($15) (and the belt) ($8).

Hope this helps!

I need to replace my serpentine belt. Which


For a 94 Jeep grand cherokee, the tension is controlled through a long bolt on the power steering bracket. The bolt is about 6 inches long, located underneath the power steering on the driver side. Lossen the lockbolt holding it in place, as well as the Power steering attach bolts, and turn the long bolt to tighten/loosen. I believe these are all 13 mm bolts.

2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee leaking coolant and power steering fluid


Just a heads up, $10 bucks will buy you a seal kit for the P.S. pump. I topped mine off for a couple months, then the oring on the high pressure line (from pump, front center) blew and dumped the reservoir in a matter of miles.

The line can be a stinker to get off, recommend driving the car for a few minutes to heat up the pump a little. Don't forget the 20MM wrench.

Power steering pump


First check the distance from the bracket mount points on the block, to the pump mount points on both brackets. If distance is different then the brackets are different. If they are the same, you may need to either change pump itself to one that matches engine year. However, if there is sufficient room on the pump shaft, any shop that rebuilds pumps can re-position the pulley to your specs, or replace the pulley with one that has a different offset.

Power steering pump


This removal is rather involved: use a turkey baster to suction out PS fluid,disconnect neg battery cable, remove serpentine belt, raise vehicle, support on jack stands, disconnect Oxygen sensor wiring harness from vehicle wiring harness, (access to this connection is thru the wiring harness grommet in the floor of the vehicle) remove catalytic converter from the exhaust manifold, remove exhaust system hangers/isolators from the bracket on the exhaust system, move the exhaust system as far as possible to the rear and left side of the vehicle, remove accessory drive splash shield, detach the ps supply hose coming from the fluid reservoir, from the fitting on the ps pump, plug the hose to prevent fluid leaking all over, remove ps pressure line from pump, plug this line also, remove ps return hose, plug line, remove nut attaching pump (@ rear of pump) to mounting bracket, loosen 3 bolts at front ps bracket, remove pump and bracket as an assembly, now remove 3 bolts and separate, reverse to install. Yes, it's a b-itch. good luck, countrycurt0

Leaking Coolant / Broken Pulleys /etc


Pressure test the system and check for leaks, use a radiator pressure testing tool kit. Sounds like the radiator may have been damaged by the parts breaking and flying about.
