What are these things undermy WK's hood?
 
Any idea what the little push button knobby thing is on the right side of the picture?

Also, is this coolant spray/should it be happening?

alarm hood senser maybe and no...that spray should not be happening. You may want to look into a new cap or a Stant cap

Does your Jeep have remote start? If so, I believe that the button thingy is the hood sensor.

the push button warns if yu hood not closed.

pretty sure.

lower pic is some kind of coolant issue.

among other things for the spray, one is to use a clamp on that overflow hose. i think fatiry its just a slip fit.

same with the other end of , and check the heater hoses too. srt8 talk about those at firewall too.

then 18lb locking cap.

If your jeep has remote start opening the hood will shut it off b/c of that sensor. Also for alarm like everyone else said, if hood is opened it will sounds alarm.

Well I don't have remote start and I have it. It sets the alarm off if the hood is lifted with the vehicle locked. It may also tie in with a remote start system to stop starting with the hood open?

Yes to all of the above. ^^^

push it and then check to see if the light on the underside of the hood is still lit.
