I had a similar prob, although with the 4.0. No visible leaks but the coolant level would go down almost weekly. Ended up being a cracked head. Once it got really bad i could see the coolant forming...

Re: Where Is My Coolant Going??

Re: Where Is My Coolant Going??

Unfortunately when my radiator busted coolant went everywhere so it's been hard to pinpoint a smell as it was literally everywhere at one point.

Noticed a couple things with the exhaust...the...

Re: WJ Brake TSB

Even if the dealer doesn't cover it do it anyways. i have a 2000 and did the upgrade a few months ago and it makes a difference. Much better pedal feel and stops with more authority, although not...

Re: Where Is My Coolant Going??

Watched the exhaust pipe on start up this morning and didn't see any smoke at all. I'm thinking about bringing it to a shop to get it checked out. Maybe I'll ask them to do a pressure test. Not sure...

Re: Where Is My Coolant Going??

Checked the oil cap again and again had a milky sludge. Also checked under the carpet and no more water. Cannot figure this out. I let it go a little longer (maybe a couple weeks) without refilling...

Re: Best Generation Grand Cherokee Relative to its Era

I feel like the WJ has aged pretty well. If I see a nice limited or overland today I still feel as though they're just as nice, style wise, as many of the newest SUVs. As far as offroad capability I...

Re: 2003 WJ Fan Failure

Re: Best Generation Grand Cherokee Relative to its Era

That was the first Jeep I shopped at the time before I ended up getting the WJ. It's a classic. I never really thought of the Liberty as real successor to it like the article states. It's just...

Re: Where Is My Coolant Going??

Re: Best Generation Grand Cherokee Relative to its Era

It's funny you mention the appearance of the WJ and WK2 b/c I always thought the WK2 resembled the WJ slightly, at least from the front. I wondered if it was just me. The back imo has become a little...
