How easy is it to remove lower rad hose? I've reverted to that more than once rather than fight with some of those drain plugs & their neat locations.

I can not fine the plug to drain / flush the radiator on A 1994 jeep cherokee


THE RADIATOR DRAIN TAP "PETCOCK" FOR THE 94 JEEP CHEROKEE IS ON THE PASSENGER SIDE AT THE BOTTOM OF THE RADIATOR - THOUGH TO BE BRUTALLY HONEST YOU WOULD BE BETTER JUST REMOVING THE BOTTOM HOSE TO DRAIN THE RADIATOR AS THE TAP/PETCOCK HAS A TENDENCY TO SNAP IN THESE OLDER MODEL JEEPS - IT DID WITH MY 96 JGC & IT COST ME A NEW RADIATOR TO THEN "FIX" THE PROBLEM.

Where is the radiator drain plug on a jeep cherokee sport 2001


On some you need to remove the front grille. on others you will find a access square on the passenger side of the grille. The drain itself is on the front of the passenger side radiator tank.
I've found that most of the drains don't work properly and that if you remove the air filter box (two 13mm bolts in the bottom of it) it gives you easy access to the lower hose. Much faster and easier to drain from there by removing the hose from the radiator.

How do I install a thermostat on a 1999 jeep grand cherokee v8 4.7 engine


Hello,

To install a thermostat on Your 1999 grand cherokee jeep. You will be needing these instruments, Container, Clamp tool or vise-grip pliers, Thermostat and gasket, 10mm socket or wrench, Razor blade, Flathead screwdriver (if necessary). Then You carefully follow the steps below:
  1. Open drain **** on the radiator to drain the coolant from your Jeep Grand Cherokee. This drain **** is located on the lower right side facing the rear of your Cherokee. Use a seal able container and reuse the coolant if it is relatively new and clean.
  2. Follow the upper radiator hose to the point where it meets the thermostat housing. The thermostat is located inside the housing. 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.
  3. Remove two bolts holding on the thermostat housing cover. Pull off the cover. Take note of the position of the old thermostat. Remove and install the new thermostat in exactly the same position.
  4. 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.
  5. Install the new gasket. Reattach the thermostat housing cover and radiator hose. Start your Jeep Cherokee and run the heater on high. Allow the engine to warm up. Check for leaks.
Those are the steps to follow to install your thermostat.
Hope this was helpful. Thank You for using fixya!!!

Replacing a Transmission drainplug on a 1999 jeep cherokee


The plug should have a nylon washer on it that prevents leakage. If you are all finished and it's not leaking than you have done well. If you have a leak there, first check to see if the washer is there and not cracked, If it is get another washer. Sometimes using a wrap of teflon tape on the threads will help if washer is good but still leaks. Don't wrap entire thread though...only the half closest to the head. If any tape gets into the unit it can play hell with the valve body.

1999 Jeep GC is leaking at the plug. Is this a common problem?


If you have a radiator repair shop near by, have them fix it for you.you take it out and they fix it.Or replace it.Now if you are really good and want to save money you can try to epoxy it with a high temp resin repair kit.cleaning is the most important part to make this work.

My 99 jeep keeps over heating


If you can remove it from the radiator use a pipe plug (brass) and eliminate it. It's far easier to drain the radiator by removing the lower hose on those anyhow!!!

Radiator


The radiator drain plug is on the bottom right or left of the radiator facing the engine. On my PT Cruiser, it is on the driver's side.

Changing the thermastat 2001 jeep grand cherokee


Hi,

As in most designs, the radiator drain plug would be at the lowest part of the radiator. However, in some instances, it would not be readily accessible due to some other components such as a skid plate, fan cover brackets and others. An alternative is to loosen the lower radiator hose (radiator end) which should serve the same purpose.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
