Question about 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee

2 Answers

Engine over heating.

I have a 2001 Jeep grand chrokee, 4 WD, 4.0L, and the problen is the engine is overheating. I've done the following things, change the thermostat, drained and refilled with coolant. I noticed that the cooling fans does not engage when the temp goes up. This is particularly true when I'm stuck in traffic, stop and go situation, but when I'm traveling on the freeway even when the air condition is on, the temperature is normal.

Thanks, Carlos

Freeway driving gets more air across the radiator
so the temp sender unit is faulty as this activates the fan by completing the fans circuit!
replace it & al should be A OK !!

Overheated. Why won't it start?


I'm not really familiar with JEEP mechanics but if you've replaced your water pump and it's still overheating with full water/coolant level, you should check the thermostat; when it fails, it's a common cause or overheating in all kind of cars

Hello Lubie...

I would STRONGLY recommend you get your codes read...

I TRIED ALL that TOO...

Finally my codes... said the OXYGEN SENSORS were complaining... OBD... DTC
(on-board-diagnostic... DIAGNOSTIC TROUBLE CODES)

So... of course I changed the... OXYGEN SENSORS.

The "NEW" OXYGEN SENSORS complained just as well...

I have subsequently learned the "SENSORS" are
just doing their job...

In my case reporting on a collapsed catalytic converter.
(muffler is actually a MORE common blockage).

A little hunting around... like Auto-Zone ... Napa auto...
Pep-boys... O'Reilly Auto Parts... even MIDAS might
yield FREE READINGs... (check around).

Just remember to wear your best SALES RESISTANCE...

and look up you prices on ROCKAUTO...
before you go... Hope this helps.

if you have done all you said you have their is only two things left i know of that will cause them to overheat and the first thing is if its the 4 cyl 2.4 litre it is probably the head gasket blown really common on the 2.4 engine. If it the 3.1 litre engine they have two bleeder valves that when you flush the out or they get low on antifreeze they get air in the line and stop the flow of antifreeze getting threw the engine causing them to overheat and possibly damage your engine. Hope this helped out with your overheating problem.

1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee overheated


You probably messed up a rod or caused piston damage your going to need more than a head gasket usauly when you over heat a car you causing the pistonts to expand more then they need to causing scouring and exsisive piston ware by the sound of it and the year your better off replacing the whole motor or completely rebuilding the old one wich will cost more then a use motor! good luck!

I want to know the different between chrokee jeep and chrokee grand jeep.


different option packages : trim, interiors and electronics as well as engine options. Personally I'd take the regular one every time...the more options the more strange electronics problems.But consumers today want to drive in a living room with wheels.
