On of two things. the thermostat is not opening ( engine will get very hot) or the radiator cores are blocked requiring a new radiator . Flushing is a pointless exercise as blocked cores do not flush out

Yes...and no. and you left out the electric fan, and clutch on primary fan. You need to determine the cause by testing. Unless the water pump is leaking or the bearing on the shaft is loose or noisy, it is not causing overheat. Primary cause of overheats is coolant loss. check everything for any and all leaks. Next, change thermostat. It's cheap and easy to replace plus it becomes unreliable after any overheat. Check electric fan to make sure it comes on when needed, and last, check that radiator is not either externally blocked (leaves etc) or internally blocked with calcium deposits. If you have any white smoke from tailpipe , coolant in engine oil or on spark plugs, you have a blown head gasket.
Hopefully it's something simple!

SOURCE: Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited P0700 diagnostic problem

P0700 means there is a transmission fault code in the transmission controller. Since the transmission controller doesn't have a light attached, it tells the engine controller to turn the light on using this code. You'll have to access the transmission controller to further diagnose the problem.

Why won't my 1999 jeep Cherokee limited V8 4.7 liter stop overheating?


A possibility is the water pump. This is what circulates the water through the engine and back to the radiator for cooling. Water pumps consist of several vanes attached to a rotating shaft. If a few vanes are broken, you'll get reduced water circulation, causing overheating.

Coolant isn't circulating in the engine of a Jeep 2002 Grand Cherokee V8. Radiator was just replaced as well as the water pump and thermostat.


Hi Jonny, While the engine is cold the thermostat will be closed, allowing coolant circulation around the engine block and cylinder head but not through the radiator. Only when the engine has reached normal operating temperature will circulation be noted in the radiator. A good test is to remove the thermostat while the engine is cold , start the engine with the radiator pressure cap removed and observe flow. If as I suspect it is there, refit the thermostat and check the heat gauge. If all remains well there is no problem. If the engine overheats replace another thermostat. If there is no circulation with the thermostat removed, there is a blockage in the cooling galleries of the engine. If chemical flushing does not clear it, it will require disassembly of the engine with careful step by step inspection at every stage. If the cylinder head(s) had been removed I would suggest making sure of the galleries not being blocked by installing the gaskets incorrectly. Regards John

A friend has a 2000 Grand Cherokee V8 Limited with 93,000 miles which has had to have radiator replaced 4 times in last 70,000 miles. It always runs hot at 212 degrees What is wrong? Help?


Check bypass hose, on THE water valve to the heater core.The watervalve may not be returning the water back to the front of the engine the back of the heads are running too warm,it has to circulate in the bypass hose or through the heater core,common for chrysler v8,s .Bypass the watervalve completely to see if it runs cooler. If not,try to find a better radiator more cooling capacity!

The temp gauge on the instrument panel was


Sounds like the radiator is clogged, have the cooling system flushed, the water pump pumps water into the engine and it comes out the top hose to return to the radiator to circulate through it to cool, if the radiator is clogged the water pressure will build on the top hose, also look at the bottom radiator hose, if it collapses when you rev the engine the radiator is clogged, although sometimes the bottom hoses are reinforced with wire to prevent them from collapsing so just because they do not collapse it does not mean the radiator is not clogged.

Engine overheating


Try to flush the system And inspect radiator. When moving the engine is also cooled by air. Make sure the water is circulating trough the manifold and the heater core. You can do this by atching a garden hose to each hose one at a time. You may also want to check the waterpump & thernostat..

Radiator may be plugged up inside or a bad headgasket. Try the radiator first since it is far easier.
