    Hi I own a 96 Cherokee that is truly a great ride. However recently my lower hose keeps getting loose at the water pump. Radiator was replaced in july with new hoses, and I replaced the water pump this week. The hose has come loose three times. It does not overheat there is no milkin my oil. Actually the temp is perfect, really leaks most when I park the vehicle. Please help me I am losing my mind thanks

    Hello John, welcome from Oklahoma.
    You might replace the hose clamp, if it is tight the hose shouldn't be coming loose so it would appear either the hose clamp isn't being tightened enough or it is malfunctioning and becoming loose.

    Welcome @Jdb1288 ...hoses generally don't slip off unless the clamps haven't been properly tightened (too loose or too tight damaging the hose). Inspect the outlet at the waterpump for scum/slime/dirt and make sure to place the clamp further up on water pump outlet

    Thanks for the advice. I replaced the clamp this morning and added another one. Jeep runs great will see over time if that's the fix. Could I have a bigger problem?

    Try one of these constant tension clamp. It will expand and contract with your radiator temp.

    I don't imagine there would be any underlying problem with a hose coming off, unless perhaps somehow the hose was replaced with an incorrect hose of a larger size.

    A new lower hose, the clamp above is a great design, think about a new radiator pressure cap.
