Serious car problems


Asked by Sep 21, 2015 at 05:31 PM about the 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

To make a long story short, my car
has been stalling in the middle of
driving for months now. It used to be
infrequent, but now it's every time I
get in the car. I have tried everything
that anyone has suggested with no
luck, the most recent being cleaning
the air intake valve and throttle body.
My alternator is fine as well as the
O2 sensor and so on and so forth.
The other night, my air filter area
started smoking. My father
suggested that it could be a fuel
issue and advised me to let it run in
the driveway to drain the fuel, as I
have no experience siphoning fuel.
About halfway through, I noticed the
temperature was abnormally high, so
I turned it off. Then it got really bad.
The car started making a bubbling
sound and what I'm assuming is
antifreeze started pouring out of my
car. I don't mean a trickle, I mean
pouring. That coupled with the
smoke was enough for me. Could
this be a broken hose or a cracked
radiator? Could this problem have to
do with mystalling problem?

if the leak got on something elect..sure it will crap out...but did you even change the fuel filter to start you off in the right direction???


I'm going to be honest, I have little to no experience with cars so I just did as I was instructed.
