Wow snow I haven't seen that since 1985 lol, I now live in Sunny West Palm Beach Florida, I would suggest changing out the thermostat, Usually when water pumps are bad you will here an obviouse noise coming from the pump or have signs of leaking. and also make sure you are getting good air flow from your fan that the fan clutch is working ok.

Hope this helps. And enjoy the snow :) Allen

1997 jeep wrangler overheating


bought a used 97 jeep that apparently had the same problem and had a low temp thermostat installed in attempt to cure the problem. I noticed when draining the radiator that only 1/2 of fluid came out. I jumped up/down on bumper and dislodged sludge and other half of fluid. Flushed system twice and then noticed temp gauge was now registering low, out of specs. Placed in correct thermostat and all problems solved.

Just bought a second hand 1994 Jeep Cherokee XJ - didn't check coolant or water levels. Was driving along highway noticed engine overheating way beyond the red, pulled over to find no coolant or water,...


If the system is loosing coolant, it has be leaking from some place, either from a connection, gasket or out of the tail pipe. When you refilled the cooling system, did you start the engine and inspect the vehicle while it was running and at operating temp?

My 89 jeep grand wagoneer started overheating on the highway but the temp stays at 220 if i keep it under 55mph. replaced the fan clutch 7 months ago.


That can be your thermostat that do not open(stuck) when the motor is warm, take that out and drive for a few miles but keep an eye on the heat indicator if the problem still exists then your radiator need a flush. remember a thermostat is for cold conditions, if you saying in a warm area or country that thermostat is not necessary
