Question about 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee
Possibly a bad P.S. hose, or maybe a loose hose connection. Close inspection is the only way to find the leak.

If you have the same pulley arrangement that most 4.0 engines have that pulley is an idler not a tensioner. Your power steering pump has a pivot bolt, and a slide under the pump. You adjust belt tension using the pump.

HI, this could possibly just be a simple as a set of bad steer tires. make sure the front tires are balanced and you front end has been properly aligned recently.
Now, if the tires are new or, they have been rotated and balanced properly recently, i would then move on to the alignment process. if you front steering Assembly has been aligned properly and, you still have this shaking at 50 mph, this will confirm a more serious issue concerning the power steering gear. i would then check the tie rod ends for ware in this case.
next, check the idler arms as well. make sure the intermediate shaft is tight and, the entire rack or, circulating ball Assembly is tight and, not loose.

If you put the thermostat in correctly (spring towards the engine) that should be OK. Likely if the water pump wasn't leaking or had a bad bearing, you wasted your $ on that.
If you re-filled it and did not have the heater on high heat, you may have some trapped air in there. But, still overheating says another thing. If you have a blown head gasket, it can pump compression into the cooling system and drive the coolant from the core. It will also overheat. You can have that tested at most any decent shop that will do a hydrocarbon test to find that.I think someone makes a chemical test kit for that but not sure if it's very expensive or not. White smoke from tailpipe will also be an indicator as will be any coolant in the engine oil or coolant on one or more spark plugs. If it turns out that it has a head gasket problem don't stop looking for problems as often a faulty fan or obstructed radiator can cause the initial overheat that caused the gasket to fail.

Testimonial: "Thank you. I was hoping not to hear head gasket, but that's where it seems to be leaning towards."
