Well the story starts off like this... I had been driving my JGC around and began noticeing a "belt squeaking noise" I wrote it off as a loose belt and continued to drive it around. One day on a trip out to syracuse it began to over heat just a little, I didnt think much of it and figured I would look into it when I got home. Well on my trip home all was going well until I got it up to 75mph on the highway, about 15 minutes after getting on the highway she started to loose power. I looked down at the tempature gauge and it was pinned at 250, well it all went down hill after that. She died right as I looked down, so I immdetily pulled it over to the right side off the road as it made that classic "dieing noise" you hear in the movies a couple of clunks and it came to a stop. Steam began pouring from underneath the hood. After it cooled down I open the hood, it wasnt a pretty site there was coolant every where, and it had pushed oil through the seals on the engine. I figured she was destined for the junk yard after this
To make a long story short I got it towed home and for those of you who have already figured it out and have been saying what an idiot through this entire story, I replaced the water pump; started it back up and havent had a problem since
The old water pump was messed up pretty bad, the bearing had wemt and the pumps fins had shred through the houseing causeing all the coolant to leak out
Can someone tell me why my jeep will beep, blink and throw a fit when there is no wind shield washer fluid but; when my jeep is over heating and the coolant is turning into steam I dont even get a warning light?
Moral of the story is the I6 is the most amazing engine ever made hands down
