Your Jeep should only have one serpentine belt. That belt powers the alternator, water pump, and power steering pump.
You should not drive without the belt. I would guess one of the pulleys locked up and melted the belt.

SOURCE: 2001 jeep grand cherokee overheating

is the radiator fan coming on and staying on, or not coming on at all?? i was having the same problem, and it turned out to be a fan relay switch which was pretty easy to replace. around 40 bucks, and maybe 30-45 mins.

SOURCE: my belts have broken. Car overheated, lost power

It looks like you may have 2 serpentine belts, but when one fails it almost always gets tangled into the any other belts and they all end up coming off, all of the problems u listed are driven off your belts, replace the belts and hope that the overheat didn't cause any damage to the engine. And yes you have what are called serpintine belts and there is a tensioner for each..

My oil pressure gauge (on the top right of the dashboard) randomly shows the oil pressure going down to zero (check gauge light comes on) and then randomly goes back into the normal range. It happens...


Did you compare what your dash gauge read when it was acting up and compare it to the manual gauge at the same time? I know you said you used the manual gauge and it read fine so if you get a proper reading out of the manual gauge and an improper reading out of the dash gauge then your dash gauge needs addressed.

1996 jeep grand cherokee 5.2L v8 is cranking but wont start doesnt look like its getting a spark


Might be your jeep's ecu is bad. Does the check engine light come on your dash, when you turn the ignition key to on, before cranking? If not, the ecu is bad. If the check engine light does come on, it may be the crank sensor is bad on your jeep.

Check gages on jeep grand cherokee


If your "Check Gauges" light is on, the light means pretty much whay it says...CHECK GAUGES! One or more of your gauges is/are reading outside of normal operating range. You could be having an overheating problem (Temperature gauge near or in the red) You could be having a charging system problem (Battery or Amp gauge reading in the "discharge" or "low voltage" area.) You could be nearly out of fuel (Fuel gauge reading near empty) Your oil pressure could be low (OIl Pressure gauge reading very low)....You have to look at your gauges to find out what is going on that is not normal.

04 jeep grand cherokee v6 - i was driving on the highway when the engine overheated and turned off and would not start until it cooled. what could be wrong or what could i check to find out? thanks


Hi.

Common fault is fuel pump getting damaged after engine overheating.

The pump is located in fuel tank, to know if pump is working, check fuel pressure using an hand gauge. It is available for $25 or so.

Check if there is coolant. If engine restarts check coolant level, if that goes down, then the head gasket has been damaged.

If fuel pressure is OK, check injection and distribution.

I'm receiving a check gauges warning light on my 00 Jeep Grn Cher


This might be a result of an oxygen sensor. If you take the vehicle to a store like autozone, they will attach a diagnostic sensor to your vehicle at no charge, and then reset the unit, and be able to tell you what is going on. This is at no charge, so there is nothing to lose. I hope this helps.

The check gauges light will come on anytime the key is in the ON position and the engine is NOT running, so it's NOT a problem related to the gauges when the car shuts down.  This can be verified if the light goes off when the car is running. Filters and pressures will not normally cause problems like you are describing anyways. It sounds like an ignition problem related to the ECM (computer), as I've had similar problems in the past with the same vehicle, this will probably not be something you can fix yourself.
