I just replaced water pump, thermostat, and hoses because I had a leak an tire kingdom said that those were my issuses I got every thing to together flushed system an added new coolant got it to running temp with no leaks nowhere then I took it out for a test drive and now my lower hose by my thermostat houseing Seems to be leaking and I have coolant on fan blades what's going on!
That said, where exactly does the coolant appear to be seeping out of? Is the hose seated firmly? Clamped on?

Are you sure its the hose? Sometimes thermostat housing doesn't get mated back to the engine well and leaks. Or thermostat housing cracks easily. How tight did you torque it when remounting?

This is for the 3.7 in your KJ Liberty, right? When talking about torque specs descending the engine will be important.
