    Hey thanks for a quick responce. im gonna change the cap right away. but why is it loosing colant? no visible coolant leak but, i found a small amount of coolant traces below the heater core. just wondering why loosing so much but finds less leak

    Ok just realise something that may stop the coolant from pulling from the reservor when it needs to. I find that there is always pressure build up in the radiator even when engine is been sitting over nigth. can it be a combustion leaking in to the cooling system?

Replace the radiator cap. If it is working properly it will pull coolant from the bottle, if it isn't pulling coolant then it isn't holding pressure and leaking. The gushing water sound is a sign of low coolant.

    Combustion in the cooling system, like a blown head gasket, will bleed off. What engine are you dealing with?

98 grand cherokee little heat.heater hoses hot top rad warm bottom is cold collant barely luke warm


While it doesn't seem likely, if you've changed, or had the thermostat changed.... I'd say you got a faulty thermostat. I am curious as to what your temperature gauge says the temperature of the engine and coolant is.. If your gauge is showing hot, I can think of two more possibilities... the water pump isn't pumping right... and, if the water pump isn't working right, the problem can be a cracked head or block, which can cause an airlock in the coolant system. Check the coolant or radiator cap.

2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee Larado has water pouring out from under the dashboard on the passenger side. Help!


The water gushing in on passenger side, is probably antifreeze, check that the heater core isn't leaking. If it is gushing try and capture some of this water and and see if it is antifreeze or just water. If antifreeze then it's the heatercore if water the. It's from the a/c

I have a 1998 Jeep Gran Cherokee, that while running, I hear water sloshing around when I turn the heater fan on. I don't see any leaks, carpets are all dry, no coolant leaks, etc. Ideas what it could...


It's air in your heater core. With truck running and radiator cap off, top off radiator with coolant. My take 10-15 mins but that will help bleed air from system.

Either your heater core is plugged up or your line to the core is restricted. Do a complete reverse rad flush with a radiator cleaning solution and try it. If that doesn't work you'll need a new heater core.

2000 jeep grand cherokee runs hot and heater quit working


Overheat with no heat usually has two possible causes. First, the coolant level has run low due to a leak (find leak and re-fill system)
Or, you have a failed cylinder head gasket that is permitting combustion pressure to enter the cooling system driving the coolant out of the heater core (usually you will find coolant in the oil, oil in the coolant or have white smoke at the tail pipe...some or all of these)
Comon tests for that are a radiator hydrocarbon test, cooling system pressure test or a cylinder leakdown test.
Hope it turns out to be something small!!!
Good luck

Heater takes to long to get hot and water is dripping form dashboaerd on passenger side i have a 2000 grand jeep cherokee


Sounds like one of two things are happening. Either the hose going to the heater core (on the engine side of the dash) is leaking causing coolant to spray into the passenger compartment or your heater core is leaking which is causing the dripping from the passenger side of the dash. This would also cause a loss of coolant in the engine which would cause the engine to overheat and not enough coolant to get to the heater core to supply heat to the passenger compartment. Check your coolant level (while engine is cold) and refill it with a 50/50 mix of coolant and water after you tighten the leaking hose or replace the heater core.Then start the engine and let it warm up to operating temperature. Again let it cool down and then top off the radiator with the 50/50 mix of coolant. Do not under any circumstances open the radiator cap while the engine is hot.

I hear water in the AC moving around on the inside of my car. On the passenger side, I check the drain under the Jeep and its not cogged.


AC's have no water in the system...the sound you hear is from your heater core and the probable reason you are hearing it is because your coolant system is low on water/coolant. Make sure system is full and that you don't have any leaks anywhere. Hope I helped you!

Low heat running & no heat at idol


I'm betting your heater core is getting plugged up. With vehicle cooled off, drain rad, and remove heater hoses going into firewall at back of engine area. Cut & connect a garden hose of proper size to one of the copper tubes coming out of the firewall. Run water through it for a while to clear it out, now connect it to other tube & do the same. Re-attach hoses, fill rad with proper coolant mix and start engine with heater (not defrost) on while you do it. Keep topping up rad as coolant goes down. Let it run for a while, and rev the engine a little every once in a while and hold it there for 20-30 seconds just to speed up the air bleed and circulation process. Leave the cap off until it reaches normal operating temperature & wait for rad fan to come on, then off 2 to 3 times to make sure all air is out of the system. Put rad cap back on & top up coolant return bottle to proper level, and check that bottle for a couple of days just in case level goes down a bit after. If you have the time when heater hoses are off, I recommend plugging one of the tubes, (bottom one) and using the hose for flushing attached to other tube, and a funnel, and filling the core with "CLR" and letting it sit in there overnight to clean out calcium build up better inside the heater core. Then drain it, flush it & re-connect next day, but that's up to you. Good Luck, let us know how it goes.
