Help me get this pain out of my a$$

Just received my 3.7L Jeep Liberty back from the shop, complete engine overhaul. All was great first few days, then all of a sudden it started to bubble in the reservoir and overheat.

I went ahead and purged the system, added coolant. Vehicle was fine for another 2 days. Then the same **** happend.

Before overhaul vehicle was bubbling aswell. I heard weird sounds coming from the dashboard, could it be the heatercore?

Addltn info. New water pump, radiator, thermostat, reservoir cap.

No leaks. Just bubbling. It seems to me air enters from somewhere when driving.
I'm pointing toward heater core if fhats even possible. Just the cracklin sounds I get r not normal

Take it back to who fixed it as it's not fixed as it's doing the same thing it was doing before the "fix".

Turbodsm96x - First Post - welcome to JF

Always a pretty good idea to not start off on the first post tripping the forum language sensor. Just saying.

Yep, take it back to the shop who did the work. If it did it before the work, then theres a good chance the problem wasn't corrected. I haven't been impressed with shops that do engine overhauls there, instead of replacing them with a reman unit. The work tends to be on the cheap, and corners cut, from my experience. Its one thing to do it for yourself, or a friend, as you are likely to take the time needed to have things checked, etc. Its another when they are just interested in turning and burning.
