Coolant leak

Hey guys my 2010 4.0 just started spraying coolant all down the passenger side engine bay? Is this most likely the thermostat cracked? Click image for larger version

Yeah probably the thermostat housing. It's made out of cheap plastic

So should I repair the o-rings or buy a new housing?

You have to replace the housing, it splits open. Can't replace O rings on it to fix it.

I completely replaced mine back in September. Parts only cost about 125-150, your local shop will probably do it all for like 300. Simple install if you want to do it yourself
