2011 Jeep Wrangler probs

So today I was pumping gas and as I was waiting for my turn I smelled a strong coolant smell and my jeep started smoking I opened my hood and coolant was spilling all over my motor and the coolant tank was completely empty but the jeep was not over heating. Help please

Check the intake manifold gasket. My 08 just did the same thing.

I agree with lowflyer001- where was it coming from?

I had that happen once on a different vehicle... it was a leak in one of the heater hoses.

Gotta love the overwhelming wealth of detail in this post

From where exactly was it "spilling"!?

If it was coming from that area it is the radiator.
