Changed radiator hoses and cap. changed coolant. still not getting flow with overflow into bottle. Thinking it may be bad thermostat. had coolant come out under cap. checked bottle and cap and no leak again but temp a little hot. cap is cool at normal temp for jeep cherokee 1992 4.0l no leaks under engine or anywhere else except before I replaced hoses and clamps.

    Thanks. I changed the Thermostat and it solved the problem with the temp and overflow. It was running at 220 deg. Now it is 180. I put in a 195 thermostat.

I had a leak on my top on hose on my jeep it was such a small hole I couldnt even recognize it. Almost mistaked it for the metal pipe corroding through. Now anytime your messing with the hoses it is best to just change the thermostat. They are cheap and easy. I would try that and go from there. Also how hot is it getting? 220 degrees is normal for jeeps. Should go a little past the middle line. Then the fans kick in and bring it back down. Also squeeze the hoses once it gets all the way hot and see that they have full pressure in them.
Thanks,
Lee

Engine overheats with the coolant recovery tank completely full (leaking out overflow) & heater doesn't work to remove heat from coolant.


My first guess would be air in the cooling system. For some reason liquid coolant is not flowing thru the engine.
As the engine warms up, the heater hoses should get hot and then the radiator hoses. If you take the thermostat out, you should be able to run the engine and see coolant flowing in the radiator, depending on the make and model.

first check coolant level in radiator coolant level sound low.if coolant overflow jug empty.coolant sysyem low, when add coolant to coolant overflow jug coolant level should stay at full cold mark.if coolant level okay,engine overheat while sitting or moving in slow traffic either coolant fan relay or fuse could be bad.or engine coolant temperature sensor could be bad. coolant sensor turn on cooling fan at certain temperature.hot wire check to make sure cooling fan motor not bad or short in wires.if all is good have pcm check it controls fan relay to through the coolant temperature sensor signal when coolant get hot.

Your radiator could be glogged and causing it to back up out of overflow,drain coolant,if still good,save and remove bottom hose from radiator get hose and insert in radiator and let run and see how flow is,if clooged,go to autozone and tell them what is happening and they will get you what you need to unglog .To check water pump,unscrew radiator cap and put over opening,crank engine,let it get at operating temperature,remove cap and check flow.Click on link to view radiator flush. http://www.autozone.com/autozone/accessories/Fluids-and-Chemicals/Radiator-Cleaner-and-Additive/_/N-262g?filterByKeyWord=radiator+flush&fromString=search

I replaced my radiator on my 2004 with a 2.2 and it seems like the thermostat is not opening. It can not get the air out. It seem to just to over heat and push the coolant out. Randy


REPLACE THERMOSTAT IF TOP COOLANT COOLANT HOSE GOING TO RADIATOR IS HOT TO TOUCH THERMOSTAT OPEN. TO BLEED COOLANT SYSTEM FIRST YOU NEED TO ADD COOLANT TO THE COOLANT OVER FLOW JUG UNTIL COOLANT LEVEL STOP DROPPING AND STAY AT FULL COLD MARK.WAIT 3 MINUTES IF COOLANT DROPS ADD MORE COOLANT UNTIL COOLANT STAY AT FULL COLD MARK.WITH RADIATOR OVER CAP OFF CRANK ENGINE FOR MINUTE WATCH COOLANT LEVEL AT OVERFLOW JUG.IF COOLANT DROPS ADD MORE COOLANT IN THE OVERFLOW JUG.WHEN COOLANT LEVEL STOP DROPPING IN OVERFLOW JUG.SCREW BACK ON THE RADIATOR CAP TO OVERFLOW JUG.WHILE ENGINE IDLING WATCH TEMPERATURE GAUGE WHEN TEMPERATURE START CLIMBING TURN OFF ENGINE WAIT A WHILE KEEP FROM GETTING SCALDED.WHEN COOLANT COOL DOWN SOME. PLACE A LARGE RAG OVER THE COOLANT OVERFLOW JUG OPEN CAP LITTLE AT A TIME UNTIL PRESSURE RELEASED, THEN REMOVE CAP ADD MORE COOLANT IN THE OVERFLOW JUG TO THE FULL COLD MARK.THEN REPEAT THE PROCESS SCREW BACK ON THE COOLANT OVERFLOW RADIATOR PRESSURE CAP.THEN START ENGINE WATCH TEMPERATURE GAUGE WATCH COOLANT TEMPERATURE GAUGE WHEN COOLANT TEMPERATURE START RISING TURN OFF ENGINE AGAIN WAIT UNTIL ENGINE COOL DOWN ENOUGH TO KEEP FROM GETTING SCALDED TAKE PLACE LARGE RAG OVER RADIATOR CAP WHICH IS THE COOLANT OVERFLOW JUG CAP OPEN CAP LITTLE AT A TIME UNTIL PRESSURE RELEASED ADD COOLANT UNTIL AT FULL COLD MARK. WHEN YOUR COOLANT LEVEL STOP DROPPING.AND TOP RADIATOR HOSE VERY HOT THERMOSTAT OPEN AND AIR IS OUT THE COOLANT SYSTEM. MAKE SURE YOUR COOLANT OVERFLOW JUG HAS COOLANT IN IT,WHEN ENGINE COOL DOWN CHECK COOLANT OVERFLOW JUG KEEP COOLANT LEVEL AT FULL COLD MARK.BECAUSE IF OVERFLOW JUG IS EMPTY THATS A SIGN RADIATOR COOLANT LEVEL LOW.WHEN OVERFLOW JUG EMPTY IT WILL ALLOW AIR GET IN THE COOLANT SYSTEM AND CAUSE CAR TO OVERHEAT.WHEN REPLACING THERMOSTAT ALSO REPLACE THE RADIATOR CAP ON THE COOLANT OVERFLOW JUG.

Coolant fills overflow then overheats, have changed thermostat and temp sensor. is the water pump shot or a rad problem.


You got it right.
To determine which one is the right one:
1- Take ioff the thermostat, Run the engine without it. If water is coming out at the upper hose then pump is working.
2- Hook the upper hose back to the radiator without thermostat, run the engine and press the upper hose to see if coolant flowing throu it. If it is not then , the radiator gets clogged up.
3- At this point , you know what to do. One advice is that, get the new radiator if it is bad. Don't waste money to have it rebuilt. Good luck.

1997 Grand Cherokee Laredo, 4WD, 5.2 V8. My Jeep overheated today. When I went to open the hood I could feel steam. So I waited for it to cool before taking the radiator cap off and see no fluid in it....


Have system pressure tested when cold and full to top. Pressure test will force coolant out and you will be able to trace the leaks location. Hopefully it's a small hose leak and not a major problem like a blown head gasket or cracked head.
