Can i drive my 2010 jeep liberty with a leaking heater core?


The heater uses the coolant (read antifreeze and water) from the engine to get hot. If it runs low enough, by say leaking out of the heater core, your engine will overheat and that can be bad for it and expensive to fix.
Although most antifreeze is poisonous, (don't drink it) if you keep your window open the fumes will not hurt you. That being said, it will stain the carpet, make the inside of the car smelly, leave a puddle on the floor, cause the floor boards to rust(slowly) and mainly be annoying.
Since we are starting into summer you can get by for awhile by just adding water to the coolant tank under the hood. Make sure you do this when the engine is not hot. Engine coolant can give you severe burns if you take the cap off when the engine is hot.
So, about an hour after you get home from work go and check the engine coolant level. If you can hold onto the radiator hose then it is cool enough to add some more water. If you add more water then leaks out you can drive the jeep.
FYI The leak will get worse over time.

2003 jeep liberty sport overheating and no heat is coming from heater


If it is just a fluid issue, the problem is that there is air in the system, and every time air gets to the water pump, it can't pump anything. You need to pull it up on a sharp incline (as close as you can find to 45 degrees, run it for a bit and then turn it around on the hill to force the air out of the system.
HOWEVER, I'd bet that it's the water pump. The water pumps used at that time had plastic impellers, and they disintegrate and little chunks get all through the coolant system. The dealership wanted almost $1,200 to replace it and I had to leave it for a week. I limped down the street to Firestone Auto Care and they did it for $450 in four hours. 50,000 miles later, no problems.

2003 jeep liberty wont start


Could be the battery, the starter, or a bad connection between the battery and starter.
A mechanic would check for voltage and ground at the starter first.

I've herd that on high mileage vehicles that the veins of the water pump can actually erode away. Maybe cheap metal or old coolant or wrong coolant.

2005 grand cherokee squealing and loss of coolant


Check belt tension, squeeling is most likely due to belt slippage. Have you noticed any fluid leaking from under your Jeep? Coolant level drop could be from bad water pump, when the pump needs replacing, water flows out of a "weep hole". It could be leaking onto your belt also, causing it to squeel

2003 3.7L Liberty Jeep overheated - no leaks in


thermostats are fairly reliable considering how cheap and simple they are.
They can and do sometimes fail (nothing is perfect). the cause is pretty much that they just stop working, usually because the internal movable part jams.
I believe a company called robertshaw makes what they claim is a "lifetime" thermostat...I doubt if it actually will last that long but may be a slightly better unit to use as a replacement.
I would use the opportunity to check the fan(s) to make sure they are working properly, that the radiator is not externally or internally obstructed and to replace your coolant.
if the overheat condition persists, check (or have checked) to make sure that there are no hydrocarbons in the radiator (indicates a cylinder head gasket leak) If your gasket has failed, it needs immediate service or it will cause serious secondary damage to the engine.

2.3l ranger keeps overheating, been through two radiators already.


Hello Ranger Joe, eight months and two radiators is very uncommon. Question, Have you visually confirmed the leak in the radiators or is the leak near the hose connections? Replacing the radiator, cap, water pump, & the thermostat leaves only two others, the hoses and the engine block/heads. Far fitched will be something or somebody poking holes in the radiator.
