got an ugly leak

Well guys to found an ugly leak coming from some where up under the block so it seems I changed the the hose from the block to the lower radiator today and no fix so I know it's gotta be coming from some where on the engine. The leak is not awful but does need attention right away. Thxs guys. Sorry the photos Arnt great it's really hard to squeeze in.

My bet is water pump.

This exact thing just happened to me. Changed the water pump out, and no issues whatsoever anymore. It's a pretty easy job as well. :)

Do the thermostat too while you're doing the pump.

x2 on what the two above said. I had the same issues.
change the radiator cap as well, 5.00 from a parts store

sounds good I looked at it a little closer today and seems to me witch i could be wrong,but it is the water pump. ive searched the net for a step by step processes to change it but couldn't really find what i was looking for,could i get a step by step from some one plz or some site that will enplane it semi simple.

what kind of prices are we looking at for the parts? and is there high performance water pumps or anything that would be better?


I just bought a new raditor the 1 row all aluminum and its been installed for about 3 months so that should be fine thxs though!

When you buy your water pump, pick up a Haynes manual for your Jeep. It will explain it pretty much step by step.

Do yourself a favor don't bother with Haynes get a factory service manual there much worth the money

Alright tomorrow starts the project so we will see im heading up to get the pump now but once again do they just make one kind of pump or is there like a heavy duty one i can get online somewhere if autozone just has the stock one?

For directions search on this forum. Jerry wrote a great one that I used and it was perfect.

What brand of radiator did you install, and where did you purchase a 1 row all aluminum one? I've found several all aluminum ones but they've always been 2-3 rows.
