I believe it’s leaking. I just changed the thermostat and was trying to run a coolant flush, and it was misting from that area. The overflow reservoir isn’t, but something is spraying water.

You SURE it's not the reservoir? or the hosing with a pin hole leak?

U sure its coolant? Could also be the green windshield fluid from the windshield reservoir right beside it.

I pulled the hose out of the reservoir. The reservoir is dry. No windshield fluid either. I don't know what else it could be?

The hose itself could have a pin hole leak. Ur gonna have to crawl under with a flash light and look while it runs.

Is it a misty liquid? Verified?

Or vapor/fumes/smoke

Thanks! Going to have to find a face shield cause its hot mist lol Its misty water. I am using water for the radiator flush. After I confirmed the thermostat was no longer leaking, I saw that happening.

Also not sure if this helps, but it doesn't do it until the Jeep is fully warmed up.

You may also want to check the side of your engine block under the exhaust manifold.

There are plug looking things... "freeze plugs". Could also have sprung a leak on those plugs. Check the side of the block with a flash light, see if you can notice any residual wetness.

When your jeep fully warms up, your thermostat opens... flowing the water. That make sense

Sorry been pretty busy. Got the thing on jack stands. I was able to recreate the rattle. Here’s a new link without wind.

Regarding the leak, I haven’t dove too much into it. But it’s coming a hole on the fender/wheel liner.

If there’s nothing hitting the driveshaft you need ujoints

That isn’t a leak from that hole, just evidence. It’s either spraying onto inside of there or it’s your overflow tank leaking if that’s your driver’s side

[size=3]Shackles & D-rings are different things.

Agreed. Do some research...dig man, dig!

Give that wet spot a lick. You'll know quickly if it's coolant. Haha

Ya I agree, was just showing where it’s coming from. There’s also a slight coolant leak coming from where the motor and tranny meet. I don’t get it lol I change the thermostat and now have all these leaks and they aren’t coming from the housing either lol
