Question about 1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

I have a grand cherokee laredo 93, the other day the temp gauge went up to 220 at a slow roll then when i got on the gas it dropped back to 195. as i went on it would creep up to 260. put new thermastat in and a new rad cap on. levels are full in rad and res. today drove about 2 hours and while on highway it was around 210 but once on side streets it went up to 260 and when i shut it down i heard it boiling in the res. the color is a rusty color. was wondering if the system could be clogged or maybe the water pump is gone bad. in past three months new rad, new thermastat and new cap. any help is needed thank you

The rust color may be due to transmission fluid contamination. Your radiator has passages for engine coolant and also has passages for transmission fluid too. Check the trans dip stick and be sure the color is a nice red. This may or may not be the cause. I am assuming you have or had a mixture of coolant/water and not just straight water. Also check the coolant in the radiator carefully. It may also be possible that the clutch fan on the cooling fan is defective, causing the fan not to turn efficiently, it is a silver finned device mounted to the metal fan. These are just a few areas to check out.

    Head gasket requires the top end of the engine to be disasssembled, and reassembled after head rebuild or resurfacing. This is a big job to say the least.

2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee temp gauge high when heat is on


If your "check engine" light is turn on, I suggest scanned the PCM to know exactly what fault code is stored there. Additionally, could be some problem with the "temp sending unit".

Keep us updated.

Sometimes my gas gage works on my 1996 jeep cherokee laredo and most of the time it doesn't. I also can not roll up the back window on the passenger side. Help Please


The master switch is the most likely cause for the window problem,and the fuel gauge is most likely the fuel sending unit in the fuel tank

My oil pressure gauge goes to the H


Not really , when you give it gas it creates higher pil pressure at higher engine speeds, when the engine slows down there is less pressure on the oil.

Im having problems with my gauges on a 2005 jeep grand cherokee laredo. The lights will flash on and off for all the functions such as low gas, tow haul mode, the fuel gauge, speedometer, rpm guage, and...


I've had my 2005 Grand Cherokee into the dealer 5 times for the same issue and they've replaced a bunch of stuff, but have not found the problem yet. A quick fix, I've found, is to jiggle the key in the ignition. Doesn't fix the problem, but it does stop everything from going crazy! Let me know if anyone has the actual fix.

Normal coolant temp for 2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee city/highway V6


Your Jeep should have a 192 or 195 degree thermostat. Do u have to add coolant once in a while? If there is no coolant loss, no overheating problem, u shouldn't have to worry about it, it could be the temp. sending unit is not accurate. If it concerns u it would probably be worth it to remove the thermostat, check the temp rating on it(it should be stamped on it). Replace w/ a new one, and see what it indicates for temp then. Good luck, let me know what u find Curt

93 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo


Could be a sensor.I'm thinking more along the lines of a fuel pump or fuel filter.If the fuel pump is going bad..similar symptoms.Would be advisable to install a pressure gauge at the engine,and check fuel pressure when it's acting up.
