New to the Forum, New to Jeep

Purchased a used Jeep Commander 5.7 Limited QDII 2 years ago.

Vehicle ran great until about a month or go or so, I recently did quite a bit of repair, and thought I might reach out to some more experienced drivers for additional input.

Thank you for having me!

So far I've been getting all my parts from Rock Auto.

I recently replaced the radiator, power steering pump, and power steering pump pressure hose. I did the repair myself, and so far the power steering is holding up well, I'm still leaking coolant - although ONLY when the vehicle starts in the morning - when I reach my destination, it's no longer leaking, and upon restart it doesn't prompt any leaks either.

The pressure hose was not an easy find, so many places (rock auto included) list a hose that wont fit in the Commander 5.7.
And if you somehow manage to snake that hose into place (despite the odd metal pipe located in the center of this incorrect part) you'll find the male component wont fit into the hydraulic cooling fan.

Anyway, thanks for the welcomes!
