Check collant level and if full then look into replacing the thermostat, which can fail and block cooling system.

1996 jeep cherokee temp gauge reads hot 10 mins. after start-up


If you have a viscous fan hub then have it replaced as it is not drawing air through the radiator at idle or slow speed (crawling traffic). Check that are no air locks in the system as they will cause heating problems.

The temperature gauge on my 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee started running hot (about 3/4 up), as soon as I start moving (even when the car is cold). It comes down to normal (about 50% on the gauge) when I stop...


Change the sensor, but it will run hot like that if you are not moving fluids across it. It is basically measuring air temp for a minute. Could be a totally stuck thermostat. Change both. That cooling system is critical on a cherokee.

05 Jeep Liberty.. change the electric fan because it wasn't coming on. Fixed the problem for about 7 months. Now it over heats mostly while sitting in traffic.. Get out. move the wire harness con


could be relay but I'm thinking your lines are exposed somewhere between relay and fan and they are shoting out. Thats why it works when you move them. Youi could always electrical tape them (full length) and see if that works. Hope this helps

Heat takes along time to warm up and still not hot


sounds like bad thermostat. [check if the tempature gauge stays on the low side.]

Jeep will over heat when sitting in traffic. Changed the sensor and thermastat. I think it's the fan.


You can hot wire the fan motor to the battery. If it runs, it's good.
One thing you did not check is the relay...below and behind the r/f headlight, above the vacuum reservoir. Usually best to get to from below.

My tempature gauge keeps spiking in my 1996 jeep cherokee


The temp sending unit could be bad. They do not cost that much. Check the temp sending unit plug for corrosion. Other proublems could be wireing in the instrument cluster.

1991 Jeep Fuel Control Issue


Hey Mudkicker,

Who ever thought of putting an electric fuel pump inside a tank of gas........

Check your other gauges for accuracy. They do that when a ground is loose.

Check the wiring from the fuel tank along the longitudinal frame for frays and shorts. Plugs are secured.

Under the hood, passenger side, check the fuel pump relay. Switch it with one of the others to test it.

Bring the vehicle to an auto parts store. Ask them to break out he code reader. Check for diag codes

Comment me back
Mike.

Engine overheating


Actualy check the clutch fan. It might still turn but its not engaging annd is having no effect in cooling the motor.

Temp gauge goes to full hot while at Idle


Check the auxiliary cooling fan for operation. As the engine temp rises, it should kick on to bring the temp down. U may have a bad motor on the fan, or more likely a bad fan switch.
