I took out radiator now the bottom hose wont go back right its leaking transmission fluid from it

Have you tried removing the hose coupling & cleaning it. Renew the O rings, put a bit of rubber grease on it & reasemble. I'm not certon if the 1997 Jeep still use the quick release couplings on there transmission oil cooler pipes like the 1993 model.

Win i start the car and look under the hood, there is oil coming out of a box that is, on the side of the block. But above the oil filter ?? . How do i fix that, is it a gasket or what ??

That is the engine oil cooler. There is a 'O' ring between it and the oil filter mount. They harden and crack.

Ask your dealer for the large Oil Cooler 'O' Ring.

Remove oil filter. Remove exposed pipe nut holding oil cooler to housing. If nessacary, drain coolant so you can disconnect coolant hoses from cooler or catch coolant as hoses disconnected. Swing oil cooler away and remove old 'O' ring.

Place new 'O' ring with grease on oil cooler it to hold it in place and reassemble. Tighten oil filter pipe nut to around 18 ft lbs .

Refit oil filter. Refit coolant hoses and top of oil and coolant.
Run engine to check for leaks and allow to cool. Top of coolant to COLD level if required.

You will need hose clamp pliers and wrench for oil cooler pipe nut. Pliers can be obtained from most parts stores.

Replace radiator

easy job considering ,i done one a while back but the cost of the radiator was astronomical just over 500 euros ,remove the fan on the back of the radiator ,the top piece of metal over the top of the radiator ,and comes out but the problem i had was with the hoses as they have a sort of push in clamp ,also the oil cooler feed pipes from the auto box and the engine oil cooler pipes ,now the engine oil cooler connections were just screw on but the gearbox cooler pipes have a special plastic retaining clips and these broke on me and the only way i could repair them was to buy new ones which come with the whole pipe from the gearbox and they were very expensive indeed ,also their are a few different versions as well ,all this because of a silly plastic clip .Also i had to unbolt the AC radiator from the main radiator as well .but the hardest part was the gearbox cooler pipes

    My car is a volkswagen passat diesel .there is oil in the coolant i was first told the head gasket had blowen. i have also been told it could be the oil cooler. the car is not over heating in fact the...

    There is a very easy way to check the oil cooler for leaks.

    Do this with the engine cool and be prepared to catch some coolant in a pan.

    Remove the 2 coolant hoses from the oil cooler and attach them together using a 5/8 inch straight heater hose connector. You are bypassing the oil cooler temporarily. Wipe the oil cooler clean so you can clearly see any leaks develop.

    Now run the engine and watch the oil cooler pipes (the ones you just removed the hoses from) carefully. If you begin to see oil seeping from the cooler pipes you've found your problem.

    This might take a while to see so be patient and let the car run for at least 15 mins or more.

    Don't worry about the cooler being disconnected while the car is running, but I do recommend reconnecting the cooler if you have to drive it even if you find it to be leaking.

    If it is found to be leaking, you will need to replace the part and have your coolant flushed out properly to remove as much of the oil as possible from the system. Also change the engine oil at the same time, it is possible that coolant has gotten into the oil although it may not be obvious.

    Good luck.
