1995 Jeep Cherokee 5.2L 318 4x4

Replaced water pump and timing housing gaskets on engine. Now the engine will not start. Did not touch anything that would throw the timing off. Only disconnected the A/C wires. Everything seem fine except the cold weather. The car sat for 3 days. Car turns over but no start. Looking for a quick solution. Thanks

Take a look inside the changer with the holder removed and clean any contacts you see. There also needs to be the proper amount of electronic lube inside.
Using a CD lens cleaner is also something to try.

I have one '98 GC 5,2L V8 and remember that the first time I put a CD in my changer it read error, even though it was loaded properly. After pulling out and replacing the holder once or twice it played fine.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using Fixya, and have a nice day.

I just replaced the engine on my 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo. I replaced the V6 4.0 liter engine because of a blown radiator, although before removing the old engine I had the radiator replaced to help...


When an engine overheats, unless a huge quantity of coolant goes into a cylinder, (from a blown head gasket) it will generally be fine and can be re-started.. OK, so now you have another engine and that too is overheating?
First thing I'd check is the electric fan and if you have a mechanical one, check that too.
If the old engine severely overheated it could damage the transmission (both are cooled by the radiator)
If the transmission has an overheat switch on it, it can shut the engine down. On the other hand, the engine you just had installed may be bad.
I'd definitely have another shop check it out and see if there is anything wrong with the installation.
Before any good shop releases a car, especially after a large job such and an engine r&r, they test drive it and make sure everything is working. Somehow it doesn't appear that was done.
One important thing...When any engine begins to overheat, do not drive it. Driving can cause a small problem to "snowball" into a huge job!!!

1995 Jeep Cherokee Sport. Keeps overheating. Replaced water pump, hoses, thermostat and belt. Runs between 220 & 240 without a/c on. Have been told it is either the coolant sensor or the fan...


Clutch Fan are known to fail over time, but I wold not rule out the radiator. The small passages inside the radiator will clog due to age. You did not mention how many miles are on the Jeep or if the Aux fan is kicking on.

How to replace timing cover gasket on a '97 jeep grand cherokee


Pull the alternator brackets and front engine brackets off until you get to the water pump. You will also need to remove the fan shroud and then the fan. Remove the water pump and then you will see an aluminum cover and that will be your timing cover. remove the cover and clean all the gasket off the engine and the cover. use a razor blade, and make sure there in no oil or grease on the parts where the gasket lies. Put your gasket on, bolt the cover back on with the new gasket and repeat the teardown process in reverse.

Before you change the thermostat....do me a favor and start your Jeep. Squeeze the hose leading into your engine.....your should feel the pressure pushing into the block....no pressure, bad pump. Pressure? Change the thermostat.

Let me know what you find.....If you would like me to post the steps....here they are:

Removal & Installation
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. If necessary, disconnect the coolant temperature sensor electrical connector.
  3. Disconnect the upper radiator hose from the thermostat housing.
  4. Remove the attaching bolts and lift the housing from the engine.
  5. Remove the thermostat from the engine

    1. Remove the thermostat and gasket.
    To install:
    1. Clean all gasket surfaces thoroughly.
    2. Place the thermostat in the housing with the spring inside the engine.
    3. Install a new gasket with a small amount of sealing compound applied to both sides.
    4. Install the water outlet and tighten the mounting bolts to 200 inch lbs. (23 Nm) on V-8 engines and 15 ft. lbs. (20 Nm) on non-8 cylinder engines.
    5. Install the upper radiator hose to the housing and tighten the hose clamp.
    6. Connect the coolant temperature sensor connector to the housing.
    7. Refill the cooling system.

Replacing water pump 95 JGC


Hello Sir,

Here's a step by step proceedure to remove and replace the water pump on your Cherokee.

Be advised,all 4.0L engines, some 2.8L engines and some 4.2L engines have areverse rotating water pump. You can ID these from the word REVERSE orREV imprinted or cast on the housing and/or fan. There will also be an'R' stamped into the impellor.

Make sure your replacement pump is the correct type, If not, expect some major turmoil.

The procedure:
1. Remove negative battery cable
2. Open radiator valve - drain cooling system2.gif
3. Remove cooling fan2.gif and shroud
4. Remove belts (see my tip on serpentine belts2.gif if needed)
5. Remove water pump pulley from hub
6. Remove hoses from water pump
7. Remove accessory brackets from the water pump.
When removing the P/S pump and/or AC compressor, leave the hoses attached and move them out of the way.
8. Remove the remaining bolts and detach the water pump from the engine.The bolts are three different lengths. Make note of where they camefrom.
9. Compare the new and old pumps. Make sure they match.
10. Scrape off the old gasket material.
11. Apply a thin continuous line of RTV High Temp sealant to the water pump side of the gasket.
12. Put a couple bolts through the pump to hold the gasket in place and mount the gasket.
13. Apply Another coat to the other side of the gasket.
14. Attach the pump to the engine. Screw the bolts in finger tight.
15. Attach the remaining bolts.
16. Tighten them up in 1/4 turn increments.
17. Re-attach all the stuff you removed
18. Refill the coolant, adjust belt tension.
19. Run the engine and check for leaks.

Hope this is very helpful

1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee : Replaced Water Pump and Drive Belt now Jeep won't start?


When you replaced the Water Pump, did you replace the Timing Belt? Any time you replace a Water Pump you have to replace the timing belt because it stretches out. If you did not then most likely your Engine is out of time and there for will not start, but it will turn over. hope this helps, good luck.
