Coolant sensor keeps saying bad would that cause it to over heat jeep laredo 97 grand cherokee


Yes, cause that sensor operates the electric cooling fans by the radiator, if those fans or fan don't come on, the radiator can't cool down as quick and causes the engine to run hotter.

Take care of your cooling problem! Is it overheating? or just during normal operating temperature? If it is under normal operating temp you have a bad heat sensor!

Check your radiator for external and internal obstructions (leaves, bugs etc on the a/c condenser or leaves between the condenser and radiator, rust or calcium deposits inside the radiator core all cause loss of heat transfer)
Also make sure that the system is full and that the electric fan and the clutch fan are operating properly. (electric fan should come on just above normal operating temp and clutch fan should not be "freewheeling" above temp either)
Note: If you need to have the radiator flushed, do it separately from the engine. especially the inline 6 and 4 engines rust up inside and if the system is flushed with the radiator connected, the debris will pack up inside it and actually can worsen the condition.

Cooling fan not kicking on causing the jeep to over heat. Replaced the termstat and temp sensor, on a 00 jeep grand cherokee.


Check the fan operation by disconnecting the fan wiring. Using the battery use a set of jumper wires to see if the fan runs directly off the battery.

Check the front stabilizer bar and the bushings on it. It is located under the radiator with arms that bend back to each front tire.

Run the car with the radiator cap off. Make sure the radiator is topped off with coolant or water will do just fine. While the car is running look in the radiator neck and check if there are bubbles coming out.
Maybe bad head gasket.
