Asked by Dec 25, 2013 at 08:46 PM about the 1997 Jeep Cherokee 4 Dr Sport 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

its a slow drip but when the car is idle it leaks faster. its towards the front of the hood. any advice or maybe products to stop a leak is welcomed.

1 Answer


Your best bet it to locate the leak. A small inspection mirror will help you look in the small places. As far as a stop leak product I would have to advise against using it. These products might stop you leak but what else are they stopping up in the process. I feel the use of these types of products will only lead to bigger and more costly repairs in the future.
