overheated jeep grand cherokee 2006. coolant boiling in reservoir

10

Asked by May 11, 2015 at 12:26 PM about the 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My car got overheated and did not want to start anymore. We also noticed some leak from the radiator at the bottom. When I started the car when it was cold it started fine but I noticed after some time that the water in the reservoir started boiling. My brother told me it is the gasket. However he did not notice water in the motor oil. When we filed the radiator it took only a little bit of water. the check engine light is also on. is it the gasket? or the thermostat or the radiator?
