    ummm... i'm not sure if my boyfriend did that when he changed those, i'll have to ask him... and if not try what you suggested =)

    he did say something that he thinks a head gasket could be blown, but this poor jeep is going downhill fast... starter and altenator are going bad now, the muffler just fell off and now the back door won't open anymore,,, plus when he was changing the water pump he busted the power steering fluid open... so no more power steering now =(

Did u properly bleed the air out of the cooling system? if u are not sure raise the front of the jeep as high as u can with a floor jack, fill the coolant recovery bottle all the way up with 50/50 coolant mix and run the engine until it gets hot, then shut it down and run cold water over the radiator core, this will cause the air to bleed out and the coolant in the recovery tank to be sucked in, watch the level in the recovery while u do this, don't let it run dry. If this doesn't cure the problem you have other problems like a poss blown head gasket.

I had this same problem and found out it was relatively simple. The fan shroud had shifted and wedged the fan so that the fan wasn't coming on. Check that out, hope it helps.

How to replace a fuel pump on a 1994 jeep grand cherokee?


I'm assuming that your Jeep have a 5.2L V8 engine (as mine), then check this procedure...

Grand Cherokee 5.2L Engines
(see Figure 6)
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Open the radiator valve and drain the cooling system.
  3. Remove the cooling fan and shroud as an assembly.
  4. Remove the accessory drive belt.
  5. Remove the water pump pulley from the hub.
  6. Disconnect the hoses from the water pump.
  7. Loosen the heater hose coolant return tube mounting bolt and nut and remove the tube. Discard the O-ring.
25b04d0.jpg

Fig. 6: Water pump mounting bolt locations
  1. Remove the water pump mounting bolts.
  2. Loosen the clamp at the water pump end of the bypass hose. Slip the bypass hose from the water pump while removing the pump from the engine. Discard the gasket.
To install:
  1. Clean all gasket mating surfaces.
  2. Guide the water pump and new gasket into position while connecting the bypass hose to the pump. Tighten the water pump bolts to 30 ft. lbs. (40 Nm).
  3. Install the bypass hose clamp.
  4. Spin the water pump to ensure the pump impeller does not rub against the timing chain cover.
  5. Coat a new O-ring with coolant and install it to the heater hose coolant return tube.
  6. Install the coolant return tube to the engine. Ensure the slot in the tube bracket is bottomed to the mounting bolt. This will properly position the return tube.
  7. Connect the radiator hose to the water pump.
  8. Connect the heater hose and clamp to the return tube.
  9. Install the water pump pulley and tighten the bolts to 20 ft. lbs. (27 Nm).
  10. Install the accessory drive belt.
  11. Install the cooling fan and shroud.
  12. Fill the cooling system.
  13. Connect the negative battery cable.
  14. Start the engine and check for leaks.

Other details can find in your repair manual ZJ-Secc-7-Cooling-System

Hope thats help.

Bad hoses


The lower radiator hose goes to the water pump, will have to drain radiator to replace it. You should hae 2 heater hoses, if your engine is an inline 6 cylinder one hose will go from the frot of engine by thermostate housing to the firewall and the second hose from the back of engine to firewall
