Question about 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

2001Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo that was smoking! and thanks for your help

Thanks for the info. I didn't know what to expect from this site but I am pleasantly surprised!
From how I understand it - there are two different radiators that might go in this jeep. One is a radiator where you could replace the cracked hose or attachment only OR the other - the entire radiator would need to be replaced. We had to replace the entire radiator. It wasn't too terribly expensive. The mechanic that did this said that we should be careful taking longer trips - he said the fan closest to the radiator doesn't do it's job by keeping things cool and NOT breaking or cracking. As I read on this site I am seeing that does seem to be a common problem. Any words of wisdom of how I should address this concern? Thanks again frankster016!!

    Thanks for the nice compliment!! You sorta have 2 rads, one for cooling the engine, the other is for the AC. Overheating is like the engine had a 'stroke'! It will never be 100% what it was, but with the new rad and not pulling a trailer, and a bit of respect on long hills, you should be fine! Be sure all the hoses are in perfect shape, Plus have the heater rad flushed. Nothing left but a wash an wax! Frankster016

Hi Jose, I've never tried but if you go visit a breakers yard and compare the physical dimensions of both boxes and they match up, there is no reason why they should not. Most manufactures use the same units in a variety of models and if you've found a similar vehicle with identical uses the parts are most likely interchangeable. Regards John

Fill the rad and check for leaks. Bring the engine temp up to normal, if necessary. Try not to spill any water when filling the rad, if you do, let it dry before starting the car, JKust makes it easier to find the leak. Frankster016
