Re: Angry

Sounds like you need a new Water Pump. This happened to my Jeep and some others on the forum.

Re: Angry

Could be a number of things and you wont know without looking. Hose, low coolant levels, radiator cap, hose, hose clamp, water pump, belt, cracked radiator. How could you stand not looking. I would have been out there with with a flash light or even with my cell phone in a heart beat looking for where the leak was coming from.

Believe me I wanted to look but I was so angry at this point... I don't know much about this sort of thing so I did not want try and diagnose something I know nothing about. The dealership is gonna come get it , drop off another Jeep and fix whatever it is without any issue along with some other small things.
And it is 2011 JGC Overland with 5.7 hemi.. Thanks for the replies everyone. .

Re: Angry

Best case scenario: a hose blew off.

Could be anything cooling system related really

Actually it's not that nuts. It's very common for coolant hoses to blow off. Seen it happen plenty of times sometimes the clamps just rust and break.

Re: Angry

Giving us your mileage could help us out.

3 years old, high mileage...hoses crack and give out. Happens to all water cooled vehicles.

The REAL thing to worry about is did the engine overheat and something was damaged...like a head gasket.

Re: Angry

I...I have to share this.

Back In The Day, I had my truck stolen. Thankfully, I had a motorcycle and wasn't instantly stranded.

When it came time to get a replacement, I wasn't really ready for anything, so I had a friend (car guy, haggler, wheeler dealer) get me a car. And he got me a 1975 BMW 2002. $1500. It had...issues.

One day, I drove home, and back the car in the garage. It was making all sorts of banging sounds and there was smoke and I had no idea what was going on.

No worries, took my bike in to work the next day, dragged my Mechanical Friend home to look at the car. He looked it over, and couldn't find anything.

So, I drove back in the work the next day. Bang, clang, smoke. Pulled my friend to the parking lot, and he looked at it. At one point we opened the radiator. "Hellooo in there!...in there...there..."

Radiator was bone dry.

At lunch, we bought a bottle of anti-freeze, poured it in and... it dumped straight out on the ground. We could just watch it bleed out, a nice green stream. Freeze plug in the water pump corroded out we think. "You need a water pump!" "Oh, ok!"

So, I drove it home, more bang, more clang, more smoke. Parked it, bought a water pump, installed it, and bought an Explorer that weekend .

I have no idea where it vented its fury on to the ground initially.

The car was fine. We didn't really hurt anything. Sold it to another friend, he loved it.

So, anyway, on topic, water pump or hose. I don't recommend you drive it to the dealer, however .

Re: Angry

The dealership just picked up the Jeep... I guess the next time I post something about the jeep I should calm down before I do it... I left out alot of things that would have given you guys a better idea of what I was dealing with... Sorry for that... on a brighter note.. They have it now, under warranty and getting it fixed asap... thanks again
