Need input on engine code for engine temp staying low too long


Have you not googled your obd codes
& diagnosed them, to find a problem

No idea why you would do all you did

You always resolve code related issues first

The coolant temp should be 210 all the time

Sounds like your not looking at scan tool data
or following any factory trouble charts or actually
know what coolant temp is,your just assuming & not
doing the required testing to verify things

2000 jeep grand cherokee has sluggish idle sometimes doesnt stay started


You could possibly have a bad EGR valve which would affect the vacuum which affects the idle. Check for a vacuum leak first then check the egr valve

Since you have already changed everything that you have, I can not think of anything new that might cause your Jeep to overheat. Are you going by the meter in your vehicle or doing separate temperature measurements? I had a defective temperature gauge that caused me to chase my tail till I did separate measurements.

Is it really the engine which starts running, or is it the hydraulic cooling fan which makes a lot of noise due to the high coolant temperature? Since the temperature drops down rapidly when you start driving, the problem seems to be with a restricted airflow from the cooling fan. Was the radiator changed lately?
Take care in not overheating this engine, because the heads can warp (coolant leak) and/or it can start dropping a valve seat.

Temp increases on idle and aircon fails


Does the electric fan come on and stay on when it's hot? Find what's clicking it could be the relay for either a/c or fan. (though they usually are on the passenger side in the power distribution center near the battery. Your system works pretty much like this: the temperature sender on the engine sends info to the computer which sends a message to the relay to turn the fan on. The a/c bypasses this to some extent and turns the fan on every time the compressor is running.
Your radiator must be really clean or it would be blowing coolant all over the place a bit over 210, unless the gauge is reading incorrectly.
