Definitely will check that next

Nubby55 If it stays hot that may be just low on coolant, but where is it going? Look for a spot where you park, check all you fittings for crud around the joint, it leaks some where!

Skylord I would think rust is a possibility. I had a similar problem, and a radiator flush fixed it for me.

Engine stays hot

My engine stays pretty hot to the touch, had the jeep off for a good 40 minutes, coolant level has been going down not ridiculously fast but at a noticeable pace, also for some reason it's turning a dark yellow shade, initially was green coolant
