Question about 1998 Jeep Cherokee
When you start to overheat on this model,it will run rough and die. autoone will run a scan on your vehicle for free.it akes about 5 minutes,but will tell you what is wrong,and what part you need.
but 210 is relatively high temp.....so iwould replace that thermostat for about 5 bucks,along with the temp sensor for about 30 bucks. all in all takes about 10 mins to replace them both yourself.
i say these to things as i have a 98 grand cherokee limited 4x4,and had the exact same problem.

Testimonial: "thank you that's what i wanted to here but i changed thermostat and the sensor by the thermostat the problem persist the coolant goes back coolant can"
Shutting down when hot can be associated with a failing fuel pump but the pump is not influenced by engine temp.
Items that are influenced are the crank position sensor, cam sensor and the ignition coil. I have also heard of shutdown relay problems associated with engine (under-hood) temps but haven't ever seen that happen.(same for the actual board in the computer)
To find the problem, you need to do tests when the engine has shut down as anything tested with the engine running will often test OK. If either the coil or asd relay prove to be the culprit, the best cure is to re-locate them to a cooler location or to make a heat sink to draw some heat away from them.
To do testing, get yourself a chilton or haynes manual and a digital multi-meter and follow test directions.
I'd need to do that testing if I were there, as that not only is the best way do get an accurate diagnosis, it is the only way.
