I hope someone has an idea of this issue. My jeep Laredo (6 cylinder, 2wd, auto transmission) burned out in 2012 less than 55k on it. Had it completely rebuilt by an reputable shop (the dealer wouldn't give me time of day but I digress). The other day I started it up, pulled into the driveway
and a couple of minutes later there was a spurting sound and fluid leaked out over the driveway. That was it no overheating and no further leaking.
Next day changed my plugs and the three on the passenger side were sitting in about an inch of what turned out to be transmission fluid. Took it to the Dealer who said the vent tube spit it out and recommended a service. They said there were no error codes etc. and no leaks (i.e. coolant, fluid mixing etc.) and again there was no indicator that any overheating took place. Took it back to the repair shop and they can't figure out why it did that....
Ok. Had to be in work early this AM. Went to repair shop at 4 last night and said I need the car. It was sitting in the lot and it was cold. Guy said well we don't know, not happy with techs eval saying clogged vent tube, want to keep it.Remarked he thought if could be a problem with a valve?? I said I need it for the morning. Was told it was two quarts low on fluid, he wants it topped off. On of the techs pulled the car in and topped it off. when asked how much he said almost a quart. Driving home, after 3miles going up a hill car starts smoking, looks like a fog bank behind. Get to level ground and it stops, no engine lights and no overheating. A couple more miles it starts again then gets really bad pouring around right fender and then into the cab. Parked the car no engine lights, no overheating, see a trail of fluid behind it. Underneath leaking fluid and water (coolent) from back of engine. Coolant is now low in car... no more leaking.
Was it overfilled?? I just had the head gasket replaced a week ago and now I'm worried about that
