Clicking Noise When I Put My 03 Liberty into gear + Radiator ISSUE

Need help please! I called my local jeep dealer and they said it isnt a problem. I am not convinced.

Basically my 6cyl 2003 2x4 liberty with 105k makes a clicking noise when I put into F or R gear fresh from start up. Otherwise it does not make the noise when I shift. It is only the initial shift after start up ( and possibly rest)

It makes about 10 super fast clicks. Almost sounds like something is winding up and clicking. There are zero operational issues and it drives and shifts very well.

ALSO I just had the radiator replaced by my local jeep dealer. When I park it and shut it off, I can hear "air escaping" or something decompressing for a few seconds. Now the repair was done about 2 months ago. The other day I noticed my radiator fluid was almost empty.

Thoughts?

Thank you!
Jason

That clicking from the trans is normal,it's the shift solinoids cycling.Mines done it since I drove it off the lot with 3 miles on her.

The radiator issue is not normal and needs to be found and fixed ASAP as the 3.7's do not like to be overheated.

The fluid seems to be holding after a few weeks. What would cause it to drain like that after a fresh install? I am assuming the old fluid is drained and replaced?

Could not have been bleed correctly and it "burped" which could have been the cause of the low coolant if no leaks were found.Make sure you topped it off with the correct HOAT coolant.
