Question about Jeep Cars & Trucks
I just changed my thermo when my car started to overheat...now when I run my AC it overheats and after I run it for a while my reservoir bubbles way more than it should.
Have it tested for a bad head gasket.
Why would you be using it at all
in that condition (overheating)?

i had the same thing on my wifes 2000 mpv van...the ends of the radiator are made of some sort of composite type material....it had a slight crack in it....wasn't obvious until it got worse and started streaming water from it when warmed up....even after it cooled enough not to be spewing it was hard to actually see the crack though a few inches long....was hard to even see where the water and antifreeze mixture was coming from until i took out the radiator

you've answered your own question! You're cooling system has leaks possibly from your rad. You should have no leaks whatsoever.
I would also look to see if you have leaks anywhere else. Look under the car on the passenger side - see if you have leaks from the water pump. I would go to a radiator
repair shop. They will flush the system and check for leaks.
I wouldn't hang around or else you will damage your engine AND transmission. Which will be more money down the line.

I would first check for any leaks in the cooling system at the radiator, reservoir, radiator cap, coolant hoses, thermostat housing etc. Next you can get a cheap cooalnt tester for a parts store and actually check the coolants protection or cooling level it provides, your thermostat could be bad and not opening properly and would need to be replaced (you could actually check the thermostat in a pot of boiling water to determine function) next if your coolant hasn't been changed in a while or you notice any kind of debris/rust/etc while checking your coolant you should flush your engines cooling system and replace coolant, if your coolant is dirty your radiator could be clogged and not circulating coolant properly, your water pump may be going bad or you may even have a problem with the engine. start with the cooling system

SOURCE: all of my coolant leaked
once all the coolant leaks out your temp gage wont be accurate because there is no contact with coolant and the sensor that takes the temp reading. broken serpentine belt, weak belt tentioner, clogged cooling system

Sounds like you have a leak somewhere. A good place to check first is the heater core. It is on the passenger side under the dash. Check the floor carpet and under the carpet if it is wet or any signs of antifreeze. If so than your heater core is leaking, and since you don't have heat it is of course broken. This could also the the reason why you have bubbly coolant, with air leaking into the system.
I would start with that.
Good Luck! :)
