Leaking Antifreeze
Well I parked the jeep today and when I came out and drove away I noticed a big wet area on the ground. I thought its hot and humid today probably just from the air. Then I parked a few other places and nothing then I parked in my garage and I just go outside and another big area. It looked just like water but with a pink tint. So after looking around it seems to be coming from the water pump area. Just hit 3800 miles and I need to take it in tomorrow. Anyone had the water pump replaced on the pentastar?

upon further inspection it look like it might be the upper radiator hose adaptor. There is a plastic piece that comes off the engine and makes a 90 I think that may be the source of the leak as its all wet with anitfreeze.

O-rings need replacement. This happened on mine at 170 miles. Simple fix but why they don't they fix this at the factory by now.

It was just a bleed not fully seated, simple fix.

Had same leak, dealer thought it was cracked water pump housing, turned out to be loose bleed valve. seems ok now will keep eye on it though.
