well i have yet in 20 years to see a cracked engine block with the Jeep name on it more than likely is is just a freeze plug and if this is a 4.0 engine if it is not one of the 2 that is between the engine and trans is should be pretty painless to change if you find that it is a freeze plug what you can do is sipmpl locate where the plug is (looks like a backwards cap in the block about the size of a silver dollar) take a hammer and a screwdriver and drive your screwdriver through the middle of the freeze plug and pry it out of the engine. once it is out take the old one with you to your auto parts store and get a replace ment plug if you don't have much engine knowledge do this; at your auto parts store tell them that you want a universal freeze plug and they will give you what will look like 2 round rubber disks with a bolt through the center and they are so super easy to install simply loosen the nut almost all the way hold the rubber disk closest to the nut with 2 fingers and the nut with your thumb push the back rubbur disk into the freeze plug hole and tighten up the nut until you get a good seal and run your mighty jeep for another 200,000 miles good luck and hope that this solves your problem

Cracked Jeep heads DO happenI've heard of cracked 4 cyl, 2.8L, and 4.0L Jeep engines, but I've never seen a cracked head or block that sprayed water. If it's not freeze plugs, then check to see if you have any bad hoses (if they're squishy, they're bad.)

I have been rebuilding Grand Cherokees for years and it is very common for the 4.0 to crack the block from freezing between the head and oilpan on the side its easy to see just grab a flashlight.
