You need to re-fill with the heater on . After that, you need to have the thermostat tested, the radiator flow checked and make sure the electric fan is coming on when it should. If you have no leaks something here will help. Change the cap if it's old but generally that will not stop it from overheating.

Car overheated today and began to spill oil. now that I've put water and new oil it doesn't leak but the car shakes when I put it in drive

have you checked the compression on all cylinders?;if two adjacent cylinders are in low range,you may have head gasket damaged. Did you notice oil mixed with vapor on the radiatior cap,oil in the radiator/crankcase (oil looks like chocolate color 'cause of oil/water mixed). Do your spark plugs look like they've been steam cleaned?(from steam in the cylinder head)

1996 Jeep Cherokee electrical problem

If the coolant level is good, you could be having a heater control valve fault. Older cars used vacuum to actuate the valve, so if yours is vacuum operated it could be as simple as a split vacuum line. The valve could also be internally broken. It could also be a solenoid failing to ask the valve to open. Check for a bad vacuum line first. Good luck!

Getting no heat just cold air in my 1994 jeep cherokee XJ. I replaced the thermostat, heater valve and radiator still no heat.

reverse the hoses on the heater core and run water through them to see if the core is blocked if not blocked try changing the radiator cap so you have 16 or 18 pounds of pressure last make sure you have a 50 / 50 mix of antifreeze 50 water 50 antifreeze you should get heat

Overheating on a 1990 jeep lardeo new waterpump

Assuming you dont have a blown head gasket the most likely thing is a clogged radiator. Lee

1992 Jeep Wrangler with no heat in cabin

It dosen't happen often, but the air intake side of the core can become obstructed with leaves etc. If that is the case, the only way I know of to fix it is to remove the core & clean it. You did check the heater control valve to make sure it is allowing proper coolant flow through the core, right? Did you run it after refilling the system with the cap off and the heater on high to purge any air in there?

Engine block does not heat up

Check the radiator fan relay. If it fails and leaves your fan running all the time, then you may never get hot.

Mine failed in my '03 Jeep Cherokee, but it failed open. Didn't make for a fun drive home. Was located behind the right headlight, and in order to access, had to drill a hole in the splash shield behind the headlight. Then plugged back up with a hole plug from the hardware store.

Oh, and the heater never really get's hot. I don't know what temp it get's to, but hot, like in my '01 Tahoe, it's not.
