Could be waterpump. There's a small "weep" hole in bottom of waterpump. (it's an early warning system to catch seal leak before pump bearing seizes) Check closely lower side of pump and also check pass side floor/carpet for possible heater core leak. You're not seeing white smoke from exhaust are you... if so, might be head gasket leak.

My 04 jeep grand cherokee is smoking from the radiator. the radiator fan doesn't appear to be running. i've had to put more and more coolant in the resivior because it keeps going right through it...


well,probably needs radiator replaced,burning off fluid smoking problem?if not going out exhaust or in oil,have radiator checked-replaced,if fan not running check relay and fuses,might need fan replaced,if you overheat engine to bad you will blow head gaskets and this is costly.check your oil,see if gray and milky,if so blown head gasket and water-antifreeze in oil,if going out exhaust will be blown head gasket inbetween the cylinders,fix radiator and fan first,but check out to see where all fluid is going.

My 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee smells like the coolant is leaking. I have checked and can find no visible leaks nor puddles of coolant where I park. I topped off the coolant reservoir and was stunned to...


if you have no external leaks then it sounds like you could have a possible leak into the oil system(you would have a milky look to the oil) or the head gasket may have a small leak and the car is burning coolant but not big enough to overheat yet.you should have the system pressure tested as you could have an external leak small enough that the heat of the motor could be drying it before it accumulates enough to drip off the motor and yet smell.also the heater core could have a small leak in it and not show a leak.

So, my 2001 V8 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo is very slowly leaking coolant. I replaced the heater core in 2009 and the symptoms that the Jeep expressed then are not happening now. However, the low coolant...


are you mixing the coolant with water if yes,you need to just put straight up anti freeze ,because water evaporates at high temperatures .. also keep resorvoir full at all times there is a sensor in the tank that when is low it makes the check coolant light come on ,,....good luck

Coolant leak on 97 grand cherokee,looks to be coming from the rear of the block between the transmission and oil sump is there a core plug (freeze plug) that end of the block, and how do i get at it


There are two on the rear of the block. If leaking, the coolant will be coming from inside the bellhousing. This part you won't like....you need to remove the transmission to get at them. Check carefully that nothing external is leaking before doing anything further.

Smell gas in oil, check engine light on, collant


Your brother is on to something I believe.

Your coolant is rusty or milkshake-like?

If you arent leaking coolant or oil I think the both being burned in the combustion chambers! Look for oily steam at the tailpipe!

The check engine light probably came on because your O2 sensors are both shot from the excessive oil and coolant baking onto them!

Two choice:
1. Inspect the Head Gasket; Cause: head gasket leaking coolant into cylinders
2. inspect the Engine; Cause: Cracked block leaking coolant into cylinders.

Coolant is not a flammable liquid, therefore a lot of coolant in cylinder creates starting problem. You should check your engine and the coolant system for this issue.

The first thing you can do is check the oil dipstick - you're looking for a milky brown color as opposed to a dark brown (normal) color for oil - unless you've recently had an oil change - then it will be like honey. If you don't see any discoloration - I would then look around the the bottom of the area where the valve covers are located - the valve covers sit atop the heads and if you have a "blown" head gasket - you may see evidence of water/coolant seepage. You can also take the vehicle to a mechanic, who can do a simple test using air pressure to isolate a potential gasket issue.

Good luck (remember rated this post).

An old, unanswered request - if you have found the problem, tell us the results and it will be in the database for others.
No idea on the speedometer problem but if you are adding coolant too often and haven't found the leak, you may have a blown headgasket. Check your oil for any sign of water contamination; it will cause the oil in severe cases to look like hand lotion. Check your coolant reservoir for any odor of exhaust fumes. Checking your plugs for any signs of rust is also a good idea.
Keep a close eye on your water temperature until you find the leak because if there is a path between the coolant passages and a cylinder, it will blow hot gases into the water without any sign of the engine missing or misfiring (at first) while running and will **** coolant into a cylinder when the engine is off and it cools down.
