Leaks in Your Jeep to Look Out For

Top 5 Jeep Fluid Leaks

Routine Maintenance

I took my Jeep into Adrenaline Off-Road to get my rear brake pads changed. I was looking forward to learning the "How To Change Your Brake Pads".  The first thing Jeff, the owner, noticed was the coolant smell. We got under my Jeep and saw coolant build up on the bottom of my radiator.

Radiator Replacement

Time for a replacement. I went back a week later once the new radiator arrived to learn the "How To Replace a Radiator". Even though it cost me money, it was a great experience to learn more about my Jeep and taking care of it. 

To check your Jeep's Radiator get underneath and look at the bottom of the radiator. If there is a leak you will see a pinkish color build up like mine.  Once the old radiator was out we saw more of the coolant build up.


Why the leak? Speculation is the new "organic" coolant used in my year Jeep has some sort of chemical reaction with the solder in the aluminum radiator which causes the leak. As of 2023 the new Radiator is holding strong.
