The folks over on the KJ part of the forum would likely be better able to assist you.

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.
