Flush the entire cooling system until water coming out is crystal clear, then check the, thermostat, and the coolant temperature sensor, also check the engine / radiator cooling fan, the water to coolant mix ratio should be mixed to 50/50.

Hope this helps.

Have a nice day.

It doesn't overheat with the air off? It sounds like you aren't getting enough airflow thru the radiator. Radiator fans not working or leaves and dirt stuck in the radiator.

Only 2 parts remaining are the thermostat and waterpump. Always start with the thermostat when diagnosing an overheating problem. If the car is overheating constantly under all conditions and coolant is backing up into the reservoir, it's very likely to be the thermostat. If it only overheats at low speed or idling, it's more likely the waterpump.

SOURCE: 5.2 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee overheats at idle

I don't remember ever seeing a Jeep that did not have an electric fan as a supplement to the mechanical one. The electric one should come on when the A/C is engaged. Jeep radiators are far smaller than they should be due to ground clearance issues. The only way to make them work is to enhance air flow through them by using electric fans. (or adding an extra row of cooling cores such as in the special tow package). When the vehicle is moving there is enough air flow created by that to eliminate the need for fans altogether, but you have to stop sometime!
Your a/c compressor adds to engine loading (why it pulls rpm down) When at idle with a/c on, the engine "thinks" it's going up-hill and produces more heat. The heat needs to be scrubbed from the system or it can and will overheat.
Make sure that the clutch fan is engaging. It spins free when cold but should lock up after it gets hot. Add an electric fan to the system...check with several scrapyards and see of any Jeeps like yours have one and take it.(some electric fans are on the drivers side and some are directly in front of the mechanical one) If equipped, there is wiring for it in the car. If necessary you can add one either inside or outside the radiator and operate it by way of a switch and relay or just a switch. (there are aftermarket ones that are "slim line) and are designed to fit between the radiator and the front grille) You could also add an external transmission doing that, it will take some of the heat load off the radiator. Also make sure that the new radiator has the same number of core rows as the old one did....some shops mistakenly put ones with less cores in when replacing due to cost. In a system with a marginal design this can become critical. (most radiators come with one two three and even four rows)
Once the problem has been solved, don't forget to put the 195 t stat back in or the engine controls won't work properly.

98 jeep Cherokee keeps over heating

Several possibilities, including blockage in coolant tubes of radiator, damaged or slipping impeller on water pump, blockage of air flow through radiator, inoperative radiator fan(s), damaged head or head gasket...

Does the radiator fan come on? If not, problem could be bad temp sensor or fan motor or wiring.

What causes a 1993 toyota vienta to heat up excessively

Coolant level low, thermostat stuck closed, radiator fans failed, head gasket leak to coolant jacket

After checking the coolant level, look at the radiator fans when it is very hot to see if they operate.

If OK, have a mechanic do a simple check for combustion gases in the coolant, and a compression check on all cylinders. This is not expensive.

If OK, change the thermostat and flush the radiator.

With due apologize I do not know about the model year, engine code and other specs of your car. But check the following to solve the problem.
- Check Tire inflation.
- Check the clutch and pressure plate (if manual transmission).
- Check the accuracy of temperature sending gauge. (the fan should automatically start when the temperature gauge reads center position position on the combination meter.
- Check the radiator fan air flow, throw pressure and fan direction (should throw the air inside towards the engine).
- Check radiator cap and reservoir for air leaks. Perform cooling system pressure test.
- Check all the radiator hoses for firmness. Any scale or coolant color can reveal the leakage.
- Re torque all the cylinder head bolts a little more.
- Check color of engine oil. If the color is seen brown or excessive pressure is built inside the cooling system, due to the exhaust gases released into the cooling system, the cylinder head gasket is burnt. If so replace the gasket and surface grind the cylinder head with a surface grinding machine.

The foward fan only works with ac, sounds like a poor circulation problem ensure the rad is in good condition. You could also try a lower temp thermostat 160 degrees instead of a 190.

My car keeps over heating I have replaced the thermostat and radiator hoses what else could there be that keeps it over heating?

If it overheats on the freeway or constantly moving over 35 mph, it will more likley be the radiator blocked upped.

If it overheats only in slow moving traffic, it will likley be a thermo fan issue.

If it overheats all the time and is losing coolant it could be a blown head gasket.

Car will overheat while at idle

yes the head gaskets leaking on modern aluminum head engines is all to common. never overheat them, if they start to get hot shut it down and find out why, it can of course be the fans and plugged radiators or faulty thermostats but sounds like in your case the head gasket is leaking and combustion gas is entering the cooling system and this causes an overheat
