I have a jeep cherokee ...i just replaced the raditor,and water pump barely a year ago... and i replaced the thermostate 2 days ago and it still acts like it`s running hot.... the reason i replaced those things last year was because i bought some of the premixed antifreeze and it gelled and put a hole in my raditor... could it be it needs flushed out again

Re: 1998 jeep cherokee
Could be. I used to use a flush of oxalic acid and it ate just about everything. I don't know if it's available anymore. It was a white liquid in a glass bottle by the name of Mobil super flush. good luck, John

Check belt tension, squeeling is most likely due to belt slippage. Have you noticed any fluid leaking from under your Jeep? Coolant level drop could be from bad water pump, when the pump needs replacing, water flows out of a "weep hole". It could be leaking onto your belt also, causing it to squeel
The lower radiator hose goes to the water pump, will have to drain radiator to replace it. You should hae 2 heater hoses, if your engine is an inline 6 cylinder one hose will go from the frot of engine by thermostate housing to the firewall and the second hose from the back of engine to firewall
Had this problem and one thing that even Chilton manuals only show in fine print sorta say is that Jeep cherokee has a relay sensor for the coolant fan usualy right behind the passenger or driver side headlight you may have to remove the bumper also its rather easy.Its a liitle black box thats screwd down on the panel just unscrew it unplug it replace mine ran me around $60.00.Before I learned about this after replacing the thermostate and just about to rip out the water pump my buddy told me about the sensor after replacing over a year ago no problems.
