The drain should be on the lower passenger side of the radiator. I remember them being somewhat hard to access. If you can't find it you can always remove the lower radiator hose and catch it all with a big catch can. Good luck.

How To Change A Fan Belt On A Jeep cherokee 96

That depends on which engine you have. On v8 engines you need to put a wrench on the tensioner pulley and pull it over. On six cyl and four cyl engines there is an adjustment bolt on the power steering pump. Loosen the pump slide bolts and turn the adjustment bolt that moves the pump in and out of adjustment. (bolt runs under the pump...long threaded rod with a bolt head)

Can not find tension release for the serpentine fanbelt on a 2001 Jeep Cherokee Loredo. Help....!

On some Jeeps the tension is held by the alternator adjustment and there may be no tensioner pulley. See if the alternator bolts into an adjustable arm mount. If so - loosen the alternator and rotate it to release the tension.

How do i change thermostadt on jeep cherokee

  1. Follow your upper raidator hose untill you find the themostat housing which is the ending point for the hose.
  2. Remove the two bolts that hold the housing (you may have to loosen the belt to get to one of the bolts).
  3. Remove housing and replace themostat and gasket ( remove any excess gasket that may have been left over ).
  1. Open draincock on the radiator to drain the coolant from your Jeep Grand Cherokee. This draincock is located on the lower right side facing the rear of your Cherokee.
  2. Use a sealable container and reuse the coolant if it is relatively new and clean.
  3. Follow the upper radiator hose to the point where it meets the thermostat housing. The thermosat is located inside the housing.
  4. Use a clamp tool or vise-grip pliers to loosen the clamp holding the hose to the housing. Work the end of the radiator hose free of the thermostat housing.
  5. Remove two bolts holding on the thermostat housing cover. Pull off the cover.
  6. Take note of the position of the old thermostat. Remove and install the new thermostat in exactly the same position.
  7. Scrape off residue of the old thermostat gasket from the inside of the thermostat housing cover using a razor blade. Avoid getting any debris inside the thermostat housing.
  8. Install the new gasket. Reattach the thermostat housing cover and radiator hose. Start your Jeep and run the heater on high. Allow the engine to warm up. Check for leaks.

"coolant sensor bad" warning comes on all the time.

The jeep should have 2 coolant sensors, one guage sensor and one switch. Try replacing the other one that you haven't already replaced.

96 jeep grand cherokee laredo stalling

Quite possible you have a bad ignition coil. As coil heats up it breaks down and will not return to normal till it cools down. Check for spark the next time this happens. If spark is weak or not there, it warrants testing or replacement.
