Engine Cooling problem
1999 Jeep Cherokee 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 139, 00 miles
About 1.5 years ago, my radiator leaked and overheated. I had it replaced, along with the hoses (I think). All was well.
About 5 days ago, my boyfriend thought he saw a leak under the engine, but we could not find the source. 2 days ago, I heard the engine "hissing" after driving home from work, the top radiator hose was the culprit. Drove the car 2 miles to the shop -- it got hot, but NEVER overheated.
They replaced the hose, but then told me I had a "blown gasket head". They did a "sniifer" test (?)And found 220 PPM HC in the coolent.
The car runs great. No problems, the oil looks good, and no anti-freeze smell coming from exhaust. Should I be worried?
have the same problem?
