Where could a coolant leak be that drips from the protecting shield under the radiator on a 2001 jeep grand cherokee limited?


The short answer is anywhere above the shield. Look for darker (wet) trails on the front / back of the radiator (where possible) as a sign of a leak origin. Clamps between hoses and radiator openings, thermostat housings, soldered locations such as those around a filler neck, seam, etc. are also candidates for leak locations as well. Inspect the radiator cap too (when cold). Feel along the underside of hoses, support hardware, etc. that slope downward toward the radiator - as coolant may be running along the bottom side of the hose from a different leak origin location. Don't forget that the cooling system is under a small amount of pressure - so a wet spot on the radiator (or anywhere for that matter) could be the result of a stream of coolant that is squirting there - but coming from somewhere else. You could check this after running the engine to normal temperature and shutting it off - then look around for a stream squirting under the hood.

I'm dealing with a 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee with 3.7 litre V6. I just replaced a leaking radiator and thermostat and the car still runs hot. The fan is working and I see no leaks. What's next? Tell...


The rise in engine temp after replacing the radiator and thermostat could possibly be caused by air pockets trapped in the cooling system. You will need to run the engine with the radiator cap off and let the air escape. DO THIS only when the engine is cold, and let it build up to temp. Coolant will over flow during this process, but eventually coolant will need to be added once the air is released.

1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee, leaking coolant from what looks like the front of the oil pan, is that possiable?


not unless you have coolant in your oil(it would look like chocolate milk on your dip stick) its probably leaking out somewhere up above and dripping down to that spot where your finding it. wipe everything down, start the engine and watch it as it runs to see if you can identify its point of origin.my guess would be the radiator hose or the thermostat housing. hope this helps

Any tricks for removal of oil pan in a 4.0 litre


There is most likely a cross member in the way of the pan dropping down. Remove the cross member, 4 bolts, and the pan should drop once you have removed all the screws. You will need a seal cutter or a putty knife of some type to break the seal lose as Nissan uses a liquid gasket sealer when the engine is assembled.

Antifreeze is leaking from the bottom of the engine into the oil. it appears to be coming out from a large rotted gasket behing the lowest pulley, rite where the oil pan meets the bottom front of the...


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.

What is the cooling agent used for the transmistion cooling? is it oil? There is an oil type substance coming from the radiator area.


The transmission cooler is mounted either in front of the coolant radiator or it is part of it. The auto transmission oil comes from the gearbox (hot) via small pipes it is then passed through the cooler and back into the gearbox. If you have signs of oil around the front of the radiator then you need to get it looked at ASAP. If you loose too much fluid you will damage the transmission and if the cooler splits you may end up with engine coolant in the transmission oil (not good as it will screw up your transmission very quickly)
