Over heating 1988 jeep comanche

The tank pressure's up and blows over. The hoses in to the tank were leaking and the tank had a crack in it so i changed them.It seems like there is to much pressure building in the tank. when the motor is ideaing it will not overheat but if you run it down the road then let it idea for 10 min it will over heat. Can anyone help. Trying to get away from pulling the head off and checking for a cracked block or head as the compression is good.

You'll need to find out if the system is overheating and that is causing the the antifreeze to blow-over. If it was the head-gasket it usually would blow-over as soon as you started it up. But you say it happens after ten minutes of running. Sounds like the antifreeze isnt circulating. You'll need to check the cooling components one by one. Hoses, thermostat, radiator, water-pump.

No leaks in breaks still no pressure

Replace master cylinder kit and bleed the master cylinder. Check for pressure at the wheels. If there is the bleed the whole system. If no pressure check for blocked pipes. The hoses are normally the problem but they would not go at the same time.

I need to know what kind of oil a 1988 jeep comanche uses?

If you have no engine leaks, you can run a 10w 30 or 20w 40 oil in your engine. I use full synthetics in all mine and add lucas engine additive as well. If you have leaks it gets expensive to use synthetics.
Always use a good quality filter ...that is the key to keeping your oil doing it's job. Change intervals should be 3,000 miles with conventional oil and 5,000 using synthetic.

1988 jeep comanche idles high. have checked vacuum hoses. what could be causing this?

You might try adjusting the idle at the throttle body, check the mass airflow sensor, and check for leaks around the plenium.- or what some people still refer to as the intake. And, check the condition of the fuel rail and injectors.

More than likely if its a fuel injected (multi port on the manifold) than it is the IDle speed sensor on the right side of the throtle body.

I have a 88 jeep comanche it started over

Check to make sure the air is bled out of the system by removing the cap on the bottle and the heater hose at the thermostat housing. When fluid starts running out of the housing, reattach the hose and test again.
