Question about 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee
No other signs just the dash gauge, upset? what if its fibbing?
no steam, no water to ground overflowing overflow tank.
no engine pinging. no lost power, from engine, SIGNS. are key. here.
Did you consider using a IR pyro gun for $20 and find if it is really overheating,? the gun also finds clogged rad tubes, childs play like.
are you loosing coolant. that is when cold actually off the cap
and look down deep in the RAD tank? This matters, most.
which engine,? 2.5,4L or bigger?
what does no coolant going into...., mean.?
it's a loop system.
first off, we need to know does it overheat only parked?
or can you drive it from cold and keep it going and it never overheats
if the engine stays cool 180F, moving fast , then your stop. and NOW it it overheats, that means the fan is dead.
or a marginal radiator, (Pyro gun to rescue)

I had the same overheating problem in my jeep ! My problem was finaly found out to be the clutch in my fan its a different kind of clutch system it work as this. When your jeep gets warmer the tighter your fan clutch gets .While cool your fan moves slowly. now to test your clutch just warm up your jeep and rev it up a bit if your fan dose not pick up speed then it is sliping.What will come out of this is that you fan will the seez and run full all the time. if you jeep dose not overheat wile moving then it is not your thermo stat period.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,
Offhand, your described condition indicates a sticking thermostat, that is there is considerable delay before the thermostat opens. It is also possible that there is some restriction wherein the thermostat is not opening completely when the triggering temperature has been reached. As a test and to confirm, you could try temporarily removing the thermostat and operate the engine without one; observe temperature. The side effect of this test is that it would take some time to warm-up the engine, but operationally should not cause anything untoward. Of course, care has to be exercised that the gasket would still be intact.
Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.
