Question about 2002 Jeep Wrangler
It's not the water pump. pumps can leak and shaft bearings go bad, but even then it is pretty much impossible that the pump won't pump. I'd start by changing thermostat. When re-filling, add coolant slowly and just when it reaches operating temp, shut it off for about two minutes. re-start, turn heater on high and continue filling till electric fan comes on (if you have one) at that point turn off again as before. Re start and run with cap off for about 15min. If overheat continues, remove radiator and flush, and bring to a shop to determine if there are any hydrocarbons in the cooling system. If so, there is a problem with either head gasket or head. (likely you will have fixed it before you get this far.)
