Asked by Oct 28, 2013 at 03:06 PM about the 2006 Jeep Liberty

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

It has had no problems until now. it overheated, a/c quit, strong anti-freeze smell, smoke coming from under the hood, but there is no leak that we can find. Looking under the hood in the reservoir it didn't look like it needed any fluids until we took the cap off and all the fluid drained into the engine, then it took about a gallon and a half to fill it back up.

It got stuck closed because there is gank in the coolant stream~ should probably go for an antifreeze change at this point....it is the change of seasons BTW~
