The problem with these jeeps is that the older they get the more clogged the radiator geats.
The radiator in the Cherokees are only a single row of tubes.
You can try to flush out the radiator, but replacing it with a heavy duty type is probably a better option.
Your car is not getting enough flow to cool down the engine.
Also you want to check that the electric fan is coming on. There is a coolant sensor in the radiator.

My 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo is running hot, should I believe it is the water pump? I still have heat.


Yes a bad water pump will definitely cause it to run hot. you'll probably be able to hear it as well as a whinning noise from the front of the engine. Also check for really low or incorrect fluid. jeeps are know for bad water pumps and leaky radiators. the heater pump is a seperate pump from the water pump. Also check for radiator fan opperation while the vehicle is stopped. If the fan is not coming on, it could be a fuse, relay, or intake air temp sensor.

Heater will not keep heating while car is running then temp gauge goes up to hot and car acts like its going to stall fan is still running on high no heat it is a 1995century


first of all. check coolant level. if this is ok you may want to change thermostat if you still have problem. also make sure coolant is circulating in system and the water pump is ok. or you have a bad coolant leak!!

My 1994 grand cherokee laredo v8 engine overheat


Did you check the coolant level...NEVER OPEN WHEN HOT!...check the resovoir as well...it will have a fill line on the side. If all that looks ok...it could be a stciking thermostat, bad water pump, clogged radiator, and/or bad cooling fan. Are you losing water? Do you see water below the vehicle? Do you see steam. DO NOT RUN THIS VEHICLE HOT...YOU CAN DO THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS IN DAMAGE. These 5.2 liter engines are very tough so fix this soon ...it should last you a long time as long as you do not overheat it badly. You can have a garage check it out and I reccoment this quickly if it will make it that far without overheating. Tow it if you need too...it may cost to tow it, but it may cost you more to drive it in. Good Luck ! : )

1980 Jeep Wagoneer overheating


Wow snow I haven't seen that since 1985 lol, I now live in Sunny West Palm Beach Florida, I would suggest changing out the thermostat, Usually when water pumps are bad you will here an obviouse noise coming from the pump or have signs of leaking. and also make sure you are getting good air flow from your fan that the fan clutch is working ok.

Hope this helps. And enjoy the snow :) Allen

1989 Jeep cherokee Laredo over heating and the fan wont kick on, plenty of water in the radiator? How do I check to see if it is the thermostat sticking closed?


when it's overheating check to see if the lower radiator hose is hot. if not therm is bad. If OK, check temp sensor on thermostat housing. signal from there goes to the computer, then to fan relay to turn on fan.

I had a new water pump installed on my 2005 jeep grand cherokee laredo as it was leaking. After the installation, the temperature gage is still running hot. Could it be the thermostat?


Thought I answered this one already. but here's the short version. Yes , change the t stat after servicing wp. They become unreliable after any high temps (above normal). Check the electric fan, and the mechanical fan to make sure both are working properly. If all else fails. remove radiator and back flush. often overheat or high temps can loosen block rust and obstruct part of the radiator core.
When re-filling, turn heater on high to eliminate air pockets in system.
Good luck with it
