Radiator problems
Ok I have a new to me Jeep liberty the only thing i see wrong so far is the overflow tank for the radiator has a brown gunky sludgy mess in it I am trying to decide replace the radiator then have the entire system flushed or flush it first so the old radiator can catch any left over crap in the system. Or will flushing it solve the problem all together? I have a mechanic I really trust so what ever I do it will be a first class job. I know what to do but am just wondering on the order of things, Thanks
By the way 3.7 engine auto tranny 100000 miles :confused:

Re: Radiator problems
I would have it flushed and see how it goes

Re: Radiator problems
I would say flush it but my mechanic the other day replaced 4 liberty radiators for some odd reason ... this is his quote "liberty radiators are crap" LOL

so after flushing check around radiator for leaks

Re: Radiator problems
I would try to flush first too...least expensive of the two options.

Re: Radiator problems
Thanks for the advice gonna get it flushed, Transmission also. I found new radiators online for 100 bucks with free shipping didnt seem to bad a deal to me. I guess the hardest part will be getting the college student owner/driver to keep it still long enough for the work to get done :lol: She is still very excited about her Liberty, Thanks
