An overheating vehicle and leaking fluids can sometimes go hand in hand. The information provided for your Jeep is a bit limited, however I do believe I can point you in the right direction. There can actually be several different reasons as to why your Liberty is overheating and leaking coolant is definitely one of the more common ones. There are many different hoses and components that make up the cooling system, meaning any of them can leak coolant. With something like this, I find it may be best to enlist the assistance of a certified mechanic to come and inspect your Jeep Liberty in person with you. They will have the experience and tools to identify the cause of your Jeep overheating, as well as locate any fluid leaks, whether it be coolant, engine oil or transmission fluid. They will also be able to assist in making the necessary repairs to your Jeep Liberty so you can drive without the worry of your vehicle overheating or spotting up your driveway.
