    I have an 05 Liberty, I need some insight on what I should do about the motor. This is the second time it’s overheated pretty bad and I’ve already replaced the water pump. It runs at a low idle then shuts off and tiny amounts of oil and coolant can be found coming out of the exhaust. Is it worth fixing?

    2nd time overheating not good. Anytime coolant mixes with oil= a very bad day.
    Bubbles and milky looking on the oil dipstick ?
    There is no easy way to say this, it's probably toast, but pull one of the valve covers to have a look inside.

    First off you need to ask yourself why is it overheating and then next you need to then ask if the jeep is worth putting the money into it.
