Rad capreplace the radiator cap-make shure it is cold! ReservoirJeeps of this type have a plastic reservoir that is pressurized. Don't get me wrong, I love my Jeep Cherokee - but I HATE this system. Especially since Jeeps from this era also have a tendency to overheat - which warps the plastic reservoir and makes it prone to leak at the seams. You'll need to figure out where it is leaking to figure out what you will need to do. The easiest thing to do is to replace the whole reservoir, which is only two tubes and a strap. One tube is out the reservoir's side, the other is underneath the reservoir. The strap holding the whole reservoir to the truck is just held by a buckle. New resevoirs are hard to find, I've seen them on the Net a little. Otherwise a Jeep dealer will sell you one for a king's ransom. Junkyards are usually picked clean, but you may be able to find one. Costthe reservior only cost about 55.00 at the Jeep Dealership I know because I baught one in Florida when mine ruptured
