Question about 2003 Jeep Liberty

Open Question

I own a 2003 jeep liberty 3.7L Sport. The water pump started leaking and i had to replace it. then the radiator got cracked in the top right. For some reason the car is still over heating. What could the problem be? Should i just replace the thermostat? Or is there something else it could be? I live in florida if that helps any.

sounds like a head gasket problem. A minor leak there will pump compression into coolant and force it out of heater core. Any unusual steaming from tail pipe? Also: if radiator was flushed "in car" sometimes debris does not come out. Try flushing with it out of the vehicle. Jeep radiators are notoriously small for their application if not at at least 90% they will not work correctly.I'd look at the hg first though otherwise, your symptoms seem to be contradictory.

SOURCE: location of thermostat and gasket

Follow the radiator hoses to the block (upper hose first). At the end of one of these hose you will see a housing. The thermostat is in that housing.

check the casting on your replacement water pump..4.0l engines require a reverse rotating water pump..may be causing your problem.

It is typically the smaller hose coming off the side of the power steering pump, and going straight to the steering rack.
The other line (low pressure) is typically fatter and come back from a radiator at the front of the car.

My 3.7 liter 6 V Jeep Liberty (2003) runs hot very quickly. If I speed it cools down but if I am idle or in slow traffic it overheats! The radiator and hoses seem to be fine. There are no apparent leaks...

Chek in this order:

1- The water level in the auxiliary deposit.
2- the ventilator, some one have in the center a viscosity licuit that become hard when the temperature increase, if not, the air flow slowly and the water increase the temperature.
3- the valve, this is locate in the return tube from the radiator to the motor, this one regulate the pass of water to maintain the temperature stable.

I hope this help you.

It is possible that you have a head gasket leaking or a cracked head. Check for combustion in the radiator. Many shops use a chemical test for this.

Lose belt on Jeep Liberty 2007 4x2 3.7L V6.

Most Jeeps use the power steering pump to adjust belt tension. there is a slide bracket at the bottom and a pivot bolt on top. adjustment is made by tightening a bolt at the end of the lower bracket. I have also seen this arrangement used on an idler pulley right below the pump but I may be thinking of some other vehicle.

My 2003 Liberty was overheating also, I found my radiator had a small, barely visible crack in it. I bought a new radiator from 1-800-radiators, They were $100 cheaper than autozone and it was OEM quality. I changed the thermostat and radiatior cap while I was in the cooling system. FIXED . Also have you checked your oil? is it milky? If it is you may have internal problems. Also check your overflow bottle to see if it is blowing bubbles out of it? If so you may have head gasket problems, craked head, or block.
