Customer Question
Hi, steam coming from...

Hi, steam coming from passengers side when I run the heat in the Jeep. I turned the heat off, which stopped the steam.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the coolant level? Has there been any leaking from the hoses?

The gauge in the truck have not indicated a problem. Haven't checked the coolant levels. It also happened when I ram the air conditioning last month. When I turn them off, no vapor.

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your Ram?

2004 Jeep Liberty

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Ram yourself? What have you tried so far?

2004 Jeep Liberty, no, I haven't tried to fix it. I just happened.

Have you noticed anything leaking under the vehicle?

Has the cooling system been pressure checked?

I'm somewhat competent about my vehicle. I bought the car 2 yrs. ago, it had a new engine. Steam came from the passengers side hood after running the heater or air.
Jeep Mechanic: Amedee, Jeep Technician replied 7 months ago

Thank you. This condition is likely caused by a leak. Coolant, oil or another liquid is leaking. The leak will need to be pinpointed and then fixed. I would recommend inspecting the area around the passenger side for any leaks first before pressure checking the cooling system.
