Check the lines for the heater core. check the floor mat on the passenger side to see if it is a little damp or just wet. if it is then your heater core is your problem.

If my top radiator hose gets hot and not my bottom one is that a sign of a bad thermostat


Apollo's answer likely correct but can also be caused by an internally delaminated hose or severely blocked radiator.

My 2002Jeep Cherokee overheats when driving in town, what could be the reason?


You could have a stuck thermostat, which is relatively easy to replace. It is located where the upper radiator hose ties into the engine. Just remove the hose and the bolts that hold the hose adapter in place and you will find the thermostat there. Remove it and replace it with a new one.

I have 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo and it is leaking coolant


Front drivers side could be a bad cap, lower hose or the radiator itself. You need to look carefully and find the leak source. Steam travels and isn't a good indication of where the actual leak is coolant will run down and take any path it can to reach the ground. Therefore, you need to follow it back to where it is coming from, then deal with it. Your water pump can also leak and run down the lower hose. there is a small hole in the pump behind the pulley. If you see coolant coming from there the pump needs to be replaced. Sealers will not work on hoses or pump leaks so don't bother using them for that.
Good luck...don't forget this is free, so rate answers!
I will answer follow-up questions too!

2003 Grand Cherokee Overheating


This might help you as it looks as though you have an electric fan to cool , there should be a sensor on your radiator hoses upper and lower.they are actually switches triggered by the coolant temperature in side the hose. While your Jeep is sitting idle, shut off the AC as it adds to the heat off the engine not to merntion useing more gas. you should make sure both high and low speeds on the coolant fan work. good luck if this does'nt help check out the post, with more, on the 1995 Jeep heating up..

My 1994 jeep grand cherokee laredo is running hot


could be a lot of different things. bad heater core, cracked, ripped, or soft hoses, crack in the radiator, bad thermostat, clogged lines. next time you run the vehicle, try to see if you can see under the hood to see where the steam is coming from. that will help you to see if there is a bad line or hose. then try to flush the radiator to see if there is a clog in the lines. then go to get a new thermostat if none of those. then you get into the more expensive items the heater core and the radiator.

1989 cherokee xj major overheating issue


Fill up the cooling system and start the jeep. Let the jeep get at operating temp with the radiator cap off. If the coolant level goes down, add more. Keep your eye on the radiator level and see if any bubbles appear while the car is running. DON'T keep your head over the filler neck, if you do see alot of bubbles or air bubbles, you could have a bad headgasket.

Bad hoses


The lower radiator hose goes to the water pump, will have to drain radiator to replace it. You should hae 2 heater hoses, if your engine is an inline 6 cylinder one hose will go from the frot of engine by thermostate housing to the firewall and the second hose from the back of engine to firewall
