    no not a chance im going to go all the way with this,obviously he didnt want us to return when we took the car back when he told us after replaceing the head that it was infact the radiator we was arguing then and he just told us to pick the car upBasically f-off typical,they had no interest after they got £600 in their pockets.I will let you know if we get a refund or not. :)

It was none of those....the water pump is bad. The water pump is the workhorse in all of this. The thermostat would be suspect but you have re4placed that. The belt...no worries there unless it was originally slipping. The head? Huge waste of money if there was no internal leak to be found, i.e., milky oil in the oil pan.

The water pump is no good, it won't circulate your antifreeze/radiator fluid.

    Thanks for that i will give it a try i took the car to a local garage who told me it was definately the head thats why i had that done on picking up my car i didnt get very far before it overheated again.Then they told me it was a radiater when i managed to get the car back to them, which after a row with the garage ad told to pick the car up i replaced myself.At this point i realised i had thrown away that £630. I will give the water pump a go today thanks for your help much appreciated.

    as for the head there was no fluid whatsoever andthe belt was slipping so i replaced that,just hope this waterpump is the answer now lol .

    Not a problem....too bad you couldn't get a refund from those "mechanics"!!!

  • groovydee Jun 04, 2010

    i got told to contact trading standards they told me to write to them and the mechanic had 14 day sto reply he hadnt so now they have a further 7 to give me a refund or we,ll seek legal advice so at the moment we are doing what the trading standards tell us but i dont expect to see the money again ripped off ..

    Yeah, for sure! Don't let them get away with this....this is how the prices of their services is so high....and they change one thing then charge you...then the next thing...and charge you for that. You can real go into the hole for an easy fix if they would just fix it right the first time. Don't they want a return customer? I guess not!

Lpg system has no gas getting to inlet manifold


you might want to check out the lpg regulator , it may have a blockage or some other problem with it. If it's a dual fuel system you mau want to also check the electonic switch that switched it from petrol to lpg. Another thing to check could be the lpg lines and joiners, a leak in these may cause the system to shut down. On top of all of that you may need to check that there is no blockage in the lpg line or the jet where it goes into the manifold. hope this helps.

How do I know if the fan relay has actually gone out in my 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee?


Is the fan coming on when it overheats? If it is than its not the fan relay. It is likely the thermostat. If the fan is not coming on than it is likely the relay. They fail in two ways. One they do not turn on the fan and two they keep the fan on all the time. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

Fan resistor


I had the same issue on my 1999 Grand Cherokee. I replaced the fan motor which was only 68.00 from Auto Zone and the fan relay sensor which is located behind the front left side of the bumper, which was about 30.00 from Autozone. I would suggest testing the motor with the 12V (fused). You can test it with your car battery, if it works, then i would suggest replacing your fan motor sensor, behind the front left side of the bumper.
