Question about 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee
Car overheating when in idle. fluid level and quality seem ok
Your problem may be that your fan clutch has gone out. When the car is moving, it's cool, but when stopped it's idling, the engine starts 2 get hot which causes the temp to go up. The fan clutch spends the fan, which cools the engine while stopped. I had the same problem. Once you get your new one, you would probably want to get a new thermostat as well, but ask the mechanic first.

If sure that there are no leaks in the system and the radiator cap is still OK. You can check the fan if it is working by pulling out the temp sensor at the lower radiator hose near the engine. The fan should blow at full once you unplug it.
