Question about 1989 Jeep Cherokee
I just replaced the power steering hoses (Both of them) and now my 1989Jeep Cherokee Pioneer overheats. First it wasn't so bad, but then I saw the resovoir was empty, so I filled it up and it overheats worst now but it doesn't take any coolant out of the resovoir.
Also My fan never turns on. Could it be frozen, Bad connection, Bad fuse, or Just a bad fan?
Could be anything you mentioned, or the fan relay. Add to that , thermostat or partially obstructed radiator. Begin by turning the fan with your hand. If it turns it is not frozen(do with engine not running). Then, check fuse. Unplug fan and hotwire it to see if it runs when powered up. Check fan relay for power (in and out). If you never had any problem with the cooling system before you changed hoses for P/S, I would carefully examine your work to make sure that you did not accidentally unplug the temp sensor or damage the wiring anywhere. (otherwise, checking each component carefully will likely reveal whatever has failed.Don't do testing from one end to other when checking electrical... check component, then power at beginning of circut, working towards the middle. This eliminates starting at fan and working all the way through entire system only to find a blown fuse or the other way around) If you need help checking any individual part, get back to me. There is just too much to write out to cover all of it at once.
