Most individuals dont have all those tools on hand to do this..either take it to a shop and let them deal with it or to the dealer service.. then you wont have the headache of keeping all those fasteners in line..

SOURCE: How do replace a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee

I have read it is quite a job. The heater core in my 97 Grand Cherokee (which is in the same location as the evaporator) is leaking. I think you have to remove the entire dash to get to it.

SOURCE: diagram to remove and install a fuel pump on 1999 jeep grand cherokee laredo

I apologize for not being able to provide a diagram, and it's been a while since I've replaced a fuel pump in a Jeep like yours, however the fuel pump for that vehicle is located within the fuel tank. You will typically disconnect power from the battery,relieve the pressure from the fuel rail to the injectors. In most cases the test port on the fuel rail has a schrader valve "valve core" like a tire valve, which utilizing a rag to absorb excess fuel you can depress to relieve pressure. You will then have to detach the fuel filler tube and vent tube at the filler neck. With a floor jack supporting the tank ,there should be a couple of bolts holding either two straps around the tank or a large cover that covers and supports the tank itself ,that will need removal. Once you have removed these and you should be able to access the top of the tank. Bear in mind you don't put the fuel pump/sending unit wiring harness or the fuel and vent tubing under too much strain as you lower the tank. you should have enough room to disconnect this wiring and fuel tubing. the tubing will probably have a quick disconnect setup where it attaches to the pump assembly. Once you have the tank on the ground take a suitable (non sparking drift and hammer) to tap the retaining ring that holds the pump in the tank, around the openig to release it. The pump assembly will be spring loaded and the top may pop up out of the tank. Just be sure to protect yourself from any fuel that might spray up. To reinstall can be a slight chore sometimes, as the assembly is spring loaded. It usually goes in with just a slight amount of effort though. Remember to replace the fuel sock on the pump and o-ring seal around the top of the opening. You can purchase just the electric pump, but I'd recommend replacing the whole fuel pump assembly. It will cost more in parts, but longer part warranty and lesser chance of further damaging the assembly are the benefits. Naturally installation is the reverse of removal. I'd recommend a new fuel filter as well, or shortly thereafter. Chrysler factory replacement units recommend draining all the old fuel from the tank and replacing with new fuel (never done that, and with the price of gas, probably won't start) I have never seen an adverse effect from not doing so. I hope this posting has helped.

SOURCE: I don't think this is

Try grabbing one of those portable air tanks and a hose and blow gun. Set the control to floor only and start the car. blow with the compressed air into the defroster vents.It may get messy with leaves and the such but it aint no $800. It's worth a try keep charging the tank so you have a goo strong pressure coming from the nozzel. I didn't think it was necessary to tell you to put it on AC control during the project. Good Luck, Dana

2008 jeep patroit blown head gasket cost

that depends on why, damage is as you find it, on dismantle.
just a gasket, is what $35 for the gasket and then labor.
both vary by country or town. (google costs of labor)
my guess 4 hours, 2 off, 2on. and about $400
no bad found like overheated warpped head, or freeze damageg.
you running 50% antifreeze,no? then the whole engine can be a total loss. (just did one)

and pressure tests. if not done, all above can be just for nothing....

Leak in eavaporer coil how do i get to it

The evaporator coil is located in the heater-A/C housing, under the instrument panel.

The heater-A/C housing assembly must be removed from the vehicle and the two halves of the housing separated for service access of the heater core, evaporator coil, blend-air door, and each of the various mode control doors.

WARNING: On vehicles equipped with airbags, refer to Airbag Systems Safety Information and Procedures. Before attempting any steering wheel, steering column, or instrument panel component diagnosis or service. Failure to take the proper precautions could result in accidental airbag deployment and possible personal injury. See: Restraint SystemsAir Bag SystemsService Precautions

  1. Disconnect and isolate the battery negative cable.
  2. Remove the instrument panel from the vehicle.
  3. If the vehicle is not equipped with air conditioning, go to Step 6. If the vehicle is equipped with air conditioning, recover the refrigerant from the refrigerant system.
  4. Disconnect the liquid line refrigerant line fitting from the evaporator inlet tube.
    • Install plugs in, or tape over all of the opened refrigerant line fittings.
  1. Disconnect the accumulator inlet tube refrigerant line fitting from the evaporator outlet tube. See Refrigerant Line Coupler for the procedures.
    • Install plugs in, or tape over all of the opened refrigerant line fittings.
  1. Drain the engine cooling system.
  2. Disconnect the heater hoses from the heater core tubes. Install plugs in, or tape over the opened heater core tubes.
  3. Unplug the heater-A/C system vacuum supply line connector from the tee fitting near the heater core tubes.
Unplug the heater-A/C unit wire harness connector, which is fastened to the heater-A/C housing next to the blower motor relay.
  1. Remove the five nuts from the heater-A/C housing mounting studs on the engine compartment side of the dash panel. Remove or reposition the evaporation canister for additional access, if required.
  2. Pull the heater-A/C housing rearward far enough for the mounting studs and the evaporator condensate drain tube to clear the dash panel holes.
  3. Remove the heater-A/C housing from the vehicle.
  1. Position the heater-A/C housing to the dash panel. Be certain that the evaporator condensate drain tube and the housing mounting studs are inserted into their correct mounting holes.

  3. If the evaporation canister was repositioned during the removal procedure, reinstall it to its proper position.
  4. Connect the Heater-A/C system vacuum supply line connector to the tee fitting near the heater core tubes.
  5. Unplug or remove the tape from the heater core tubes. Connect the heater hoses to the heater core tubes and fill the engine cooling system.
  6. If the vehicle is not equipped with air conditioning, go to Step 10. If the vehicle is equipped with air conditioning, unplug or remove the tape from the accumulator inlet tube and the evaporator outlet tube fittings. Connect the accumulator inlet tube coupler to the evaporator outlet tube.

No a/c, no freon....2001 dodge ram 2500 diesel 2 wheel drive

It is most likely the evaporator leaking. You'll need to remove the dash panel assembly and the heater housing to gain access. I have replace many Chrysler evaporators in trucks, minivans, and Jeeps to name a few. I hope this helps.
