Hi
I’m new to the forum and wondered if anyone could give me some pointers. I have a 2006 patchy. The patchy seems to use coolant a lot especially on long journeys. The jeep drives perfectly and doesn’t over heat.i have been told these are common for he’d casket problems, but I don’t have any of the general symptoms of head casket like over heating. Could it still be the head casket? I have thought of putting some dye in the coolant to see if I can see any signs of leaks..
Regards
Steve.

welcome to the ThePath!!

But please check er your radiator cap away!
If you see strawberry milkshake kinda looking residue then get a new radiator and flush your transmission multiple times.

You model year is susceptible to this:

Hope fully this is not your issue but merely a cracked radiator ( it happens on a 13 yr old truck)
And then you need to replace the radiator anyway...

Thanks for that. There’s no residue on radiator cap nor the oil filler cap. Which normally a white residue formed on filler cap if head casket is failing.will check rad tho. I’m in the uk so not sure if they all have same issues, annoying the tits off me tho😀.dont want to put it into dealers at the mo.
