Re: my 1995 jeep over heated
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!!

can be lots of things.
bad brakes , wheel bearing or suspension damaged.
most likely warped rotors.
but why ask, we you do is LOOK and inspect them and check for illegal play in all those parts. all this is SOP on cars.
get if fixed,
or if DIY, read a book on this.
or get the FSM..... but it assumes you know how to fix cars.
are you asking how to fix cars? from ground zero?> we dont know any of that..
in nut shell, i check all those parts for damage or looseness.
wheel bearing pay is about .002' max. (i use a gage) but to humans, you cant feel that. (my buddy can)
i use a lever and pry the suspension parts , for excessive loosness
then i check the rotor for warpage or pads GONE, on more pad lining. and rotor cracks or other damage there.
I make sure my calipers are floating on there guide pins. if not that is fix now deal.
why not get the car checked, if you dont know how to do inspections
why ask how, its a 200 page book or more.....
Check to see if there is any water in any of the cylinders by removing the plugs and looking at them to see if they are wet.since you said it over heated you may have blown a head gasket.Once all the plugs are out crank the engine and see if water comes out of any of the plug holes if any of the plugs are wet or water does come out of the any on the cylinders you have a blown head gasket.The other thing to check is the timing make sure its still in time it might have jumped time.Good luck let me know something I'm curious.
Sounds like the transfer case is not fully engaging itself. you will have to check this out. This will only cause more damage if left alone. make sure the wires are connected and tight. if the wires are OK, the internals are likely to be malfunctioning. replacing or repairing the transfer case will fix this.
Hello hug-fly, sounds like again my honey is not near a phone, so it most likely is a upper or lower balljoint or a inner or outer tie rod or a torn boot? Also could be a broken belt in tire. A vacuum plate that may have gotten bent, by who knows how. I had that noise recently but I also had the items above replaced and my tires rotated, and when the mechanic was putting my jeep together he bent a vacuum plate that was located by my brake area. I also experienced that noise with a torn boot. Also you may want to check for bad bushings. Remember this, with experience when you start replacing front end parts beyond a brake job, you are better off getting it all looked at by more then one mechanic. I learned they only fix what you bring it in for, even if you say you experienced things that resemble a problem that chevy, ford, or what ever make(vehicle) is know for. They presume the answer is what fixed another make(vehicle). You need to shop for a Jeep (owner/lover) mechanic. A Jeep is more reliable(and less expensive)of SUV's if worked on by a JEEP owner/mechanic/lover/believer. That is my personal opinion! Good Luck, and happy Jeepin'.
