Question about 2001 Jeep Cherokee
Check gauges light on! - temperature lines goes to max - then back to normal (middle)
Yes, this is a common problem for over heated engines with aluminum heads. Once the engine over heats, the aluminum changes shape and warps so the head gaskets no longer seal, thus the exhaust gas in the water. The mechanix was correct. The antifreeze in the oil makes for a very abrasive compound and will wear engine parts excessively very quickly. At one time in my life, I had this problem with a Cadillac Cimarron. In 2000 miles, it actually ground the cam lubes to circles. A big mess.
So get it sealed up as soon as possible.
