Question about 1995 Jeep Cherokee
My jeep over heated bad i know why and fixed the problem but is there something else i should check that could have gotten damaged
Depends on which motor you have, but all motors may have suffered from overheating. Aluminum cylinder heads crack faster than cast iron, and Jeep used alum. heads in 95. Remove your oil fill cap and inspect. If it looks like coffee with creamer on the inside, You may have had the motor compromised - meaning there may be a crack from the water/coolant passage into the oil passage. If it is questionable, remove the oil dipstick, looking for the tan color and 'beads' which would indicate a crack somewhere. If the oil is black, you should be ok - if not, it may be cheaper ( and faster ) to replace the motor, as the block may have cracked instead of ( or in addition to) the ( a ) cylinder head.
Hope it's black!!
Thanks for using Fixya!
