I need to know what the part is that the fan clutch bolts onto with 4 bolts on the shaft for a 1995 jeep grand Cherokee 4.0?


the fan is bolted to a viscous fan hub. It is designed to have silicone fluid in one half of the hub and when the engine starts cold it locks up and drives the fan until the fluid is pumped back to the other side or reservoir in the hub. It is held there and the fan now spins free When the radiator gets hot there is a bi-metallic strip that holds a valve cluse and this strip bends and allows the valve to open and the fluid is thrown by centrificale force back into the front section and the fan is then jammed because it gets more than it can pump back to the reservoir. The fan spins and draws air through the radiator and cools the coolant down. As the coolant cools down so the metal strip closes off the valve and the fan eventually free wheels again until the next stop where the action is repeated. . If your car has one of these hubs and it tends to over heat when stopped then the hub is the main cause and should be changed. The noise is the fan spinning until the fluid is moved out of the front section

You probably have an electric radiator fan that isn't working properly. First thing to check would be fuses, then swap relays if no blown fuses are seen, and finally check at the fan connector for power. If everything is good, you need to replace the fan motor. It isn't very fun trying to figure out how to get the fan shroud/fan out. The 4 bolts holding it to the radiator are in the worst spots and it will prob take an hour or so to get the bolts out before you realize that it's super tight in there. Good luck

Fan relay is located under pass headlight. Remove light assembly, use 2 1/2 " hole saw to drill hole in plastic housing ,3"from back wall, 3'' from left side.This will put you right over relay. Unscrew two bolts,replace. Relay was $40.... dealer wanted$350 to remove front bumper to replace it.

Must i remove the radiator, the grill, and the fan, in order to change the fan (serpentine) belt on the 1996 Grand Cherokee Laredo?


Absolutely not.. It will come out by releasing tension on the belt and working it around the pulleys..It's tight but it will come.

How do i replace my water pump


it is located in the block of the engine. Follow your radiator hoses to the block. The top is where your thermostat is and the bottom is where your water pump is. ------------- start by taking off the shroud around fan blade, bolts on top of radaitor. pop in plugs on bottem. Shroud will slip by blade with radiator loose. Loosen bolts from tensioner and slip fan belt off Use a ratchet to take four bolts off of fan remove it set aside. Loosen all bolts from power sterring pump only one will have to be removed. From there you can slip out and replace water pump without much trouble. ------------ this will help.

have you tried tightening the bolt yet? There are no access points that is for sure. If you have tried tightening it and the nut is just spinning you might be able to tac weld it back on with a MIG welder.

HOW DO I CHANGE THE WATER PUMP ON A 99 JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE ?


At least you have the 4 liter 6. Once you get all the **** out of the way its like replacing a W/P on an "old school" engine, very much like a Ford or Chevy straight 6. 1) Remove radiator top retainer (the metal U that looks like its the top of the radiator (#13 or 14mm sockets I think). 2) To completely get if off you also have to remove the grill (4-6 phillips screws), then 3) unbolt it from the tubular bumper retainers underneath the grill. 4) DO NOT remove the latch cable - no need. 5) Remove the top bolts holding down the fan shroud. Lift the shroud off its bottom "tabs" and push over the fan. 6) Using #10mm socket remove fan from fan clutch, then remove bolts holding fan clutch onto water pump pulley. 7) Pull out shroud, then fan, then fan clutch. Be very patient, lots of wiggling may be needed. 8) Locate belt tensioner on idler puller below the Power steering pump. Losen very little the pulleys center bolt (10mm), then use a 10mm w/entension to losen the pulley's tension (use counter clockwise/normal rotation to losen). 9) Draw a diagram of the belt routing - you will Never remember it correctly otherwise. 10) Tap the w/p pully and pull if off - do not hit radiator fins! 11) Drain the radiator (clockwise/right rotation opens petoc from factory radiators - counterclock used on aftermaket rads). 12) Remove lower raditor hose at radiator, then at pump (it will be a challenge). 13) Remove upper radiator hose from rad and from thermostat housing. 14) losen the Rubber heater hose from the metal hose screwed into the W/P. 15) Remove 4 bolts from W/P (13 or 14mm I think). The one at the 4oclock position is longer than the others. One is hidden at 6oclock.
16) Remove 2 bolts (14-15mm??) on bottom of Power Steering mount - these go through the W/P case to the block. You may also need to losen the top PS bolts so the PS Bracket can be loose at the W/P case. 17) Wiggle the W/P out from under the PS bracket. and pull off. (16b if needed, remove the upper idler pulley near the A/C unit.) 18) Remove the Thermostat (upper hose return) housing. Scrape off old gasket. Replace with 160deg or 190deg thermostat. Use silicone on gasket. 19) Carefully use a 17 or 19mm box wrench to remove the metal heater hose return line from the upper part of the old water pump. Coat threads with spark plug thread antiseize and screw onto new W/P. 20) Install new W/P gasket w/silcone, be careful to Not block the water holes. 21) Slide W/P under the P/S bracket and jiggle into place. Hand thread one of the top bolts to hold the W/P in place. 22) Insert the P/S bracket bolts and lightly tighten. 23) Jiggle W/P around and insert other bolts, start with the 6oc hidden bolt. Add remaining bolts and tighten to 25 or 250?ftlb (about 3/4 past socket-snug). 24) Tighten ALL P/S bolts. 25) Adjust metal heater pipe. Reinstall rubber heater hose. 26) Reinstall W/P pulley and Fan clutch, and upper idler if it was removed. 27) Thread NEW Belt on pulleys. 28) Tighten tension on idler. Tighten idler axle bolt. 29) Install lower rad hose. 30) Slide shroud over pulleys. 31) Install fan on clutch. 32) Clip shroud retainer bolt mounts back on top of radiator. 33) Install shroud. 34) Connect upper hose. 35) Reinstall radiator retainer. 36) Bolt retainer to Tubular bumper mounts. 37) Reinstall grill. 38) Wonder where the extra bolts etc are supposed to go. 39) Cuss - pray -cuss - pray. 40 ) sip some beer. 41) carefully inspect everything to ensure its back to the way it looked before (several pictures from a digital camera taken during the disassembly will help). 42) Close the rad petok. 43) Add 1 gallons of antifreeze. 44) Start engine and add another gallon of A/F. 45) Turn heater controls to HOT inside (no need for fan). 46) Water guage should show 180 to 210F. 47) Add 1 gallon of water. 48) Install New 18PSI rad cap. 49) Turn off engine and add water or A/F to overflow tank. 50) 1 hour later open Cap to see if level has settled. Add Water as needed to fill rad.
