Question about Jeep Cherokee
no car stated, then adds, 2005 WK jeep
no engine options (size) stated. 3.7L or 4.7L???
you posted symptoms.
all 3 are clear facts,
and all 3 are normal when any
ENGINE or TCM brain (trans brain)
sees overheating!!! a fact.
be that real or fibbing ECT. (coolant temp)
or fibbing trans temperature sensor.
omg both ....(omg means oh my gosh)
tells me what is the chance of both fibbing?
not much. really.... (odds...)
tells me, (my hands are tied)
that you didnt scan it!
nor see that both sensors are too hot.
and is REAL.
my best guess.
TCM= transmission control module
PCM = power train control module, and may have TCM onboard.
sorry for ASE jargon, ASE invented this.
uSA invented OBD2, by law.
we have no lack of information in this regard,
not in the least.
there are 25 or more overheating symtoms.
bests your 3 stated.
1: the dash meter shows it is.
2: the engine power drops
3: CEL glows, check engine light glows. worse flashes.
4: engine pings.
5: engine brain goes to limphome (google that)
6: Transmission brain, does same.
(and a list of symtoms here, shifts wrong, tops list).
9: gurgling sounds from heater, core.
10: coolant blasting violantly from the side RAD expansion tank lid,
11:Rad cap leaks. or its side hose blasts off.
12: rad leaks.
13, heater hoses leak or core leaks or any hose,
14: Radiator was not full when you started the engine, oops.
and more, lots more, fans blast, engine races.
15: running a thermostat for 10 year's years is a FAIL.
