the jeep should hold only half of water and half antifreeze. If it still leaks than you should replace the housing that holds the antifreeze and you can always get it cheaper at the salvage yards.

you might want to check the water pump. look for a leak just under the pump. either the seal or a small hole in the housing. if the leak is out of the hole then replace the pump.

that is my guess cause there needs to be more info on problem.

  • Agree that more info is required for a reasonable answer. Typically leaks toward the front of the engine bay can be as simple as a loose clamp, a hole in a coolant hose, leak from the radiator, etc... depends upon just where it is dripping. Leaks toward the middle or rear of the engine bay can be from a loose clamp, loose intake manifold bolts, blown head gasket, leaky freeze plugs, etc.

a 50/50 mixture of a good quality antifreeze (Prestone etc.) and water

Look just below the water pump to see if any antifreeze is visible. Water pumps will sometimes leak and drip out antifreeze. Check the engine oil to see if antifreeze is mixed with the oil, indicating a blown head gasket.

One gallon of antifreeze mixed with half water

It uses green. Add it in a 50-50 antifreeze and distilled water mixture.

A 1997 Jeep uses the regular green antifreeze.
