Why won't my 1999 jeep Cherokee limited V8 4.7 liter stop overheating?

A possibility is the water pump. This is what circulates the water through the engine and back to the radiator for cooling. Water pumps consist of several vanes attached to a rotating shaft. If a few vanes are broken, you'll get reduced water circulation, causing overheating.

Our 1996 jeep Cherokee temp goes up when we stop. The fan does come on and drops the temp. We just put a water pump on

You may need to flush the cooling system.....did you replace the thermostat as well?

Glove box area 2002 jeep noise

I'm lost here.
You have a noise around or behind the glove box. And you say you have filled and bled the system.
The cooling system ??
How would the cooling system produce a noise in the cabin ?
Could the noise be the blower motor ?
Or something loose behind the glove box ? Does the noise happen when you are driving, or sitting still, or both ?

Where is the water pump located for a 96 jeep grand cherokee?

According with the Section 7 Cooling System from de Repair Manual, check this diagram (click image for zoom)...


Fig. 6: Water pump mounting bolt locations

To removal...

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Open the radiator valve and drain the cooling system.
  3. Remove the cooling fan and shroud as an assembly.
  4. Remove the accessory drive belt.
  5. Remove the water pump pulley from the hub.
  6. Disconnect the hoses from the water pump.

Keep in mind that Grand Cherokee have two sizes engines 4.0 and 5.2L (this last engine is the mine)...

How do i change a water pump on 1996 grand cherokee limited V8

I'll assume you have a 4.0l

The 4.0L engine is equipped with a reverse rotation (counterclockwise) water pump. The word REVERSE is stamped or imprinted on the cover of the viscous fan drive and on the inner side of t he fan. The letter R is stamped onto the water pump impeller. When replacing water pump, ensure proper pump is installed. Installation of the wrong water pump will cause engine overheating.

NOTE:On models with 4.0 L engine, front grill must be removed to access radiator draincock. Draining cooling system can be accomplished by removing drain plug from side of block as well as by loosening radiator draincock. Drain plug is located on lower left side of engine block.

Disconnect negative battery cable. Drain cooling system. Disconnect electric cooling fan connector. Remove electric cooling fan and electric fan shroud assembly (if equipped).
Loosen, but do not remove, 4 water pump pulley-to-water pump hub bolts and 4 viscous fan-to-idler pulley nuts. Remove accessory drive belt. Remove 4 viscous fan to idler pulley nuts, and remove fan and shroud together.
Remove 4 water pump pulley bolts and remove pulley. Remove power steering pump and bracket. Disconnect heater hoses and lower radiator hose at water pump. Remove 4 water pump retaining bolts. Remove water pump.

to install just reverse procedures

My 2000 jeep is over heating?new thermistat has been done .new radiator has been done.system was bled?

you may want to check your water pump it sounds like it may not be circulating. you may have a blockage somewhere but its un-likely...also make sure the thermostat was installed correctly and it was for the correct temp to open 205 degrees F is good. lastly check to make sure there is no coolant with your oil , or vise verse. good luck hope you find out why.

Engine overheating

Try to flush the system And inspect radiator. When moving the engine is also cooled by air. Make sure the water is circulating trough the manifold and the heater core. You can do this by atching a garden hose to each hose one at a time. You may also want to check the waterpump & thernostat..
