Yes it sounds like the thermostat is stuck and needs to be replaced. If you have the 4.0 it is a very easy task. Easy to get to also. Good luck.

There is a mini-cooler inside the radiator tank that has ATF in it. The cooler lines between the trans and the radiator have ATF in them.
The smoke could have been ATF blowing onto the exhaust pipe.

I went over a pot hole then I heard a loud pop. Stopped and looked under my jeep and there was grease or something all over the inside of my wheel. What was it? Is this a serious problem? Service 4 wheel...


You might want to get all that checked out soon. The grease might be left over from a lube job. But the POP noise, you may have broke a hub or something. If it doesn't make a noise or doesn't wobble, it is not that serious. Make sure the front end is not making any weird or unusuall noises.

2001 grand cherokee - brand new radiator starts smoking every week - must refill coolant every week but no leaks anywhere. Help!


There is a leak. the coolant is going somewhare. where does it smoke from? thats where to start looking. if it smokes out the tail pipe, it could be coolant and may need a head gasket or head? A shop can tell you if theres a head gasket problem.

Sounds like you may have blown out the tranny. No easy fix here. Going to need to have it rebuilt.
