I have the same car and had same problem. Your water pump needs to be replaced. That is where the leak is. Not a major job nor that expensive. I recommend using the green 2-year coolant vs. the orange 5-year coolant. The 5 year coolant does not protect well against cavitation (exploding bubbles) which is what caused your water pump leak. (You can research this on the I-net). The standard 2-yr coolant does protect against cavitation.

SOURCE: Blend door not working.

The bleed door controls air temp not where it comes out, dash, floor, defroster, this is most likely a mode control switch problem, that switch is on the ac control head.

SOURCE: 1997 jeep grand air blend door location

The Jeep Grand Cherokee sucks air from the outside via a hole on the passenger side of the cowl. It's under the black plastic piece that runs under the wipers.

The air is then sucked via the blower and blown into the housing where the heater core and A/C evaporator core live.

The blend door is inside this housing as well.

This also depends on if you have regular climate control or the more advanced ATC digital climate control found on some of the Limiteds.

You could possibly take out your glovebox and see if there are any broken pieces going to the door accuator.

Otherwise if it's internal, you'll need to take out the heater/ A/C housing.

To get to this housing, you have to take apart your entire dash, lift the top dash cover off, and then you'll see the housing. You could possibly check for a few thing there.

Most everything there is vacuum controlled.

You have to drain your antifreeze and have your A/C freon discharged (use a professional to capture the freon).

There are 5-6 nuts holding the housing to the firewall. You have to reach these from the engine compartment.

Disconnect your A/C lines and heater hoses. Pull out housing.

This is definately an advanced project, thus the reason for the high pricing.

Hopefully you can get it fixed without having to take this Jeep apart entirely. Try diagnosing with a vacuum gauge if necessary before tearing it apart.

SOURCE: AC blows hot air intermittanty

On the passenger side of the engine compartment near the radiator you will see a coolant control valve that has heater hoses running from it to the heater core inside vehicle.This is probably going bad.You can clamp off the hoses with some pliers while it is acting up and see if this stops the heat.If it does then it is probably bad.

I cannot get hot air from heaters


You likely have the dreaded "Blend Door" problem. In short, a piece of plastic that the engineers used to move the blend doors up and down was not up to snuff. As a result, the turning mechanism breaks, the blend doors fall down, and all you get is cold air. There's two fixes: One, you get a replacement Blend Door system from Chrysler and pay a dealer around $1000 to install it. (You have to discharge the A/C and remove the entire dash!) Or you can fix it using the "Heater Treater" fix. It's around $100 and you go in through the glove box. Just google "Heater Treater" for more info.

Sure sounds like a blend air door problem. The rotary temperature knob moves a cable that moves the blend air door. There is a bushing in the housing that likes to break and will either leave the door closed no heat or open heat when a/c is on. TSB 8506-01 covers this problem.

Affected Vehicles
Condition
HVAC, Temperature Output Control Cannot Be Adjusted
Customer states cannot adjust temperature and/or A/C is not cold.
Technical Background
The blend door control lever moves freely, but the blend door does not operate.

A bushing that fits on the lever may have a broken tab/clip, -arrows-, as shown.
This tab/clip may cause the bushing to fall out of the fresh air housing which can result in the door becoming inoperative and result in undesired air temperature.
Production Solution
No production change required.
Service Procedure
Tip:
In the past the entire fresh air housing was replaced because the bushing was not available as a separate part. The bushing is now available as a separate part.
The bushing can be accessed from under the center console.

^ Remove the panels near the foot wells at the passenger side of the console, -arrows-, as shown.
See Repair Manual, Body-Interior, Repair Group 68 - Interior Equipment for removal procedure.

^ This will expose the location of the control lever, -arrow-, as shown.

2d9ed98.jpg

^ Re-bolt a new bushing onto the lever, -arrow-, as shown.
^ Re-insert the bushing with lever onto the blend door until it is firmly secured in the housing.
Tip:

A mirror can be used to aid in identifying the orientation of the blend door when re-securing the bushing in the fresh air housing, -arrow-, as shown.
^ Reinstall panels.

Hope you are good at working in tight spots and with mirrors. I just did this job 2 weeks ago. It took 1 hour and was really a pain in the B==t working upside down with a mirror through a 1 inch hole. Hope this helps and Good Luck Happy New year and thanks for using FixYa.

Sounds like its the blend door actuator has failed or loose or cracked vacuum line going to it. These are usually not fun to replace although I dont know about your specific model, but most that I have seen you have to remove the dash.
