What the difference between jeeps with and with out a hitch


no drive line options stated, what engine and trans?
the cars data sheet covers all that. 2011?
i dont know what towing option they had in 2011.
just hitch or other things,
mostly capacity is a function of car weight and power and transmissions ability not not overload or over heat.
up to 5000 lbs, as it says , adequately equipped,(drive train)
type of hitch and tires,
all are factors.
why not ask jeep this, they look and see what you have
then ask you what you want to tow.
see>?
quote:
With the available towing package, the Liberty is capable of pulling a load up to 5,000 pounds.

youd need top ask jeep that, for a 2011.
after all they designed it and sold it.
and brake good enough to stop car + 5000 pound
so..... at the least, not to mention speeds, or altitudes and side wind effects.

one expert said
The Jeep Liberty's towing capacity without the towing package is 2000 pounds. With the towing package, it's 3500 pounds. With the towing package and a weight distribution hitch, it's 5000 pounds. You will get down the road hauling 5000 pounds (don't try to go over any mountain passes), but your engine and transmission will pay the price. Mostly what the towing package gives you is an upgraded engine and transmission cooling system.

again why not ask jeep this, go there and ask them , Sr.
how do I get to 5000lbs safe, its their car, and there design.

ever go down a hill fast with 5000 lbs behind this small car?
? it wont be fun.
5000 lbs pushing 4000lbs.
the car is a victim , of these powerful forces.

How is coolant fluid leaking into my transmission?


The auto transmissions have lines to the radiator, the core might have cracked and leaks to the transmission line that flows to and from it.

Tryining to determinet railer towing capacity for 1993 chev venture


Did your van come with the trailer towing package? That will make a big difference as those that came with the package had substantially different cooling systems for the engine and transmission cooling capacity, different gearing for towing, stronger springs to handle the additional load, etc.

What is a transcoolent line?


A Transmission Coolant Line is 2 Lines running from your Transmission to the Radiator 1 line is where transmission fluid goes into the radiator and the #2 line is where it returns to the Transmission, A Automatic transmissions Fluid can Run 400 Degrees or More,The Lines are to Help keep the temperture of the Fluid in your Transmission at a temperture that does'nt exceed the specifications of your transmission operating temperture. Prevent Over Heating and that would result in a Excessive Tep that would cause damage to the Internal Componets and your Front and Rear Seals. NOTE: Some Vehicles Trucks that Tow a Heavy Trailer or something else have a ADD on or some come from the factory with a Truck or SUIV that has a TOW Package on it, if this has this option the Transmission Lines will not go through the Transmission they will go to the Optional Transmission cooler ,thats normally located in front of your Radiator for much better cooling ,it actually works like a Radiator it has Fins and tubes with a Inlet tube and a Outlet tube. This is a Much more effficent cooling Component for your Transmission. Hope i have answered your question. And given you the Help you needed. Thank You.

Does my 2006 pontiac montana sv6 have a transmission cooler so I can haul a small trailer with 2 quads? Do I really need one?


Most vehicles have one or two means of cooling
trans fluid.
I wouldn't tow anything, without replacing whatever
factory cooler you have, out front of the condenser

You need more cooling capacity and in the summer
I would bypass the radiator cooler and use the surface
to air,you need to upgrade

My 90 ford bronco over heats and it blows out the over flow.top hose is very hot.


There are mulitiple possibilites here. Assuming there are no other major problems with the engine, and that this happens only from time to time the first thing to check is the thermostat. Ensure it functions correctly and is the correct heat range (ie: 160, 170, 180, 190, 200 and 210 degrees are the normal raanges used) Use the recommended t-stat for your vehicle (including all optional equipment). Also check the water pump for any noise or grinding to ensure it is functioning well. Next thing to check is that your fan is the correct fan and not modified or replaced with a smaller one or electric fan. The air shroud is also very important to direct air flow, and believe it or not it, that plastic shroud everyone hates will help to significantly change the airflow and thus cool much better. These are the most likely caauses. Keep in mind that the overflow only happens when sigificant pressure takes place from the coolant overheating and expanding... it does not always mean you have too much fluid. Also keep in mind that coolant has a higher boiling temperaature and does not expand as quickly as water... that is why you should always be using coolant and not water. Water works in an emergency, but not good for much more than that. The last thing I suggest you check is the size of the radiator... if it was replaced before or if you have modified the vehicle (towing, etc.) the radiator should be resized to accomodate the new load. The normal radiator for this vehicle has hat is called a "2 core" radiator. You may need a "3 core" radiator for the added cooling surface area... most commonly used for work trucks, towing packages or modified vehicles. This small problem can become a very big one if you do not solve it... the overheating can easily cause cracking in the heads or block later if it continues for any period of time.
1- coolant and levels
2- thermostat
3- water pump
4- fan and fan shroud
5- correct radiator for your application

I have a 92 pickup with a 350 motor and auto matic trans.it heats up when pulling a small trailer.


Welcome to FixYa.com This is normal considering did you buy the towing package ? This package includes a heavier cooling package. If you did not beef up the radiator to the next step up as in more cores Regards, Lee

Are the aux/condenser fan and radiator fan the same thing? And what does it mean when the spare comes without a Tow package?


You have 2. One cools the radiator when it needs to, at a specified temperature, its the radiator fan. The other kicks on once you turn on a/c, it is the condensor or a/c fan.

2001 F150 supercrew w/ factory towing - No tail lights on trailer


Not sure which fuse you checked.
The Engine Compartment Fuse Panel ( Battery Junction Box / BJB ) is where the fuse is for the trailer tow adapter parking lamps.
Fuse # 5 is the fuse for the parking lamps, and the reversing lamps.

Next is the trailer tow adapter park lamp relay. This is what BJB Fuse #5 feeds, and the coil is operated by the truck's parking lamps. This is also in the BJB, Relay 201, it is the 1/2 size relay.

Not sure what you took a resistance reading from on the trailer tow adapter.

If you want, you can pull the trailer tow park lamp relay, and jumper the normally open contacts, which should provide power at the trailer tow adapters, regardless of the truck's lights.

04 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overheating


long answer but should get you solved.

You know for some reason jeep eliminated the FC relay for some models and now relies on the computer to determine when and at what speed the fan should run based on coolant temperature inputs and A/C compressor status. If the fan is not working properly i would consider replacing the fan,
"I have a 04 GC also with the 4.0 and I could not find my FC relay either. Nobody at a local dealer here had ever heard of this phantom FC relay problem. I was able to find an electrical diagram on the web that does not show the FC relay for the 04 GC but that was it. The diagram only showed the PCM and two relays in the PDC near the battery. My GC was overheating now and then. It would seem to overheat when you were in stop and go traffic or letting it idle. I was not losing any coolant so I replaced the thermostat but that did not fix it. After much frustration I started the engine and sat there and watched it run until it began overheating. I paid particular attention to the fan. When the engine began to overheat the fan was barely spinning and would even shut off at times during the overheating. I knew this was not right so that is when I began this search for the FC relay but I could not find it. I disconnected the fan and did some checking on the two speed electric radiator fan. It has a 3 pin connector where the center pin is ground. When I ran power to one pin and grounded the center pin the fan would run. However when I switched the power to the other pin I got nothing. I had already checked operation of the Low and High Speed relays in the PDC near the battery and all checked out so I went and picked up a new radiator fan assembly and installed it. That was yesterday and that fixed the overheating problem. I have concluded that for some reason jeep eliminated the FC relay for some models and now relies on the computer to determine when and at what speed the fan should run based on coolant temperature inputs and A/C compressor status. I also found out that although my GC does not have the towing package it does have the max cooling package. When I went looking for a new motor for the radiator fan at local auto parts store I was asked if it had the towing package and I answered no. Everytime I did they would bring out a motor that only had a 2 pin connector. Not one of them kept the motor that would be needed if you had the towing package. I bet if they did it would have a 3 pin connector on it. So while my GC does not have the towing package I think it has the max cooling package that usually comes with the towing package. I think the standard cooling package uses a one speed fan where the max cooling package uses a two speed fan. It may be that the standard cooling package uses the FC relay which is supposed to be under the passenger headlight but the max cooling package eliminates the relay and uses the PCM to control two relays in the PDC which in turn run the fan. One more thing....replacing the radiator fan assembly involves removing the shroud. One of the 4 screws that holds the shroud is in a very tight space. I fianlly got to it with a long socket extension and swivel. I know this is long but I hope it helps because I was very frustrated at the lack of informartion available locally and on the web in reference to this oddity" (article found on web)
