Question about 1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee

2 Answers

I have a jeep grand cherokee 93. The overflow for radiator has been slowly going down. The temp guage goes a little past the midpoint. And, when I park it, coolant is leaking, seems like around the plugs at base of radiator. coolant in rad, is full, and I have to keep an eye on the overflow. Thing is that it does not do this every day. Don't know what to do, and afraid of the costs.

A leak in the cooling system can drain your overflow. firstly identify where the leak is coming from. if its under the radiator then the radiator will have to be removed and reconditioned as opposed to replaced. should'nt be overly even cheaper option depending on how bad the leak is would be to try some 'radiator stop leak'. its a additive that added your coolant, clogs minor leaks. it can be bought at most part shops

You need to have a cooling system pressure test done, this way the leak can be found and repaired, worst cause now will be a radiator, if you keep running it, will more then likely start to leak more, where damage could happen to your head gasket, now you'll need a radiator and a head gasket replacement and maybe more, good luck, hope I was helpful.

I have a 93 Jeep grand cherokee 4 wheel drive and the temperature coolant sensor just came on. Where is it and how do I fix it.

The temperature coolant sensor is located in your radiator overflow. Since it is a sealed unit you replace it as a unit. Not much to it at least on my 95.

I have a 2002 jeep grand cherokee and am having coolant problems. Every say 2 weeks or so, the coolant low level warning will come on and the overflow tank will be empty. radiator is still full though...

The hose is an over flow drain. If you've seen no signs of leaks then most likely your radiator cap is bad. The cap helps to pressurize the cooling system, if it is bad it allows to much coolant out to the over flow tank and the extra is dumped while your driving. When you turn off your engine the fluid is drawn back into the radiator and your coolant mysteriously disappears.

Having a temperature question/problem. 2005 Jeep grand cherokee 5.7L Hemi 4x4 49,000 Miles. The temperature gauge plays around a lot. goes from the little bar before half temp. to the little bar after...

It sounds normal, but perhaps the radiator is a little small. Make sure the core is clean by blowing it out with compressed air (from the engine side) to clear out bugs and other debris. Make sure the overflow/reserve tank is at the proper level. Check the coolant level in the radiator when engine cold--it should be right at the top of the filler. These are all preventive, not a cure for anything.

Changed radiator hoses and cap. changed coolant. still not getting flow with overflow into bottle. Thinking it may be bad thermostat. had coolant come out under cap. checked bottle and cap and no leak...

I had a leak on my top on hose on my jeep it was such a small hole I couldnt even recognize it. Almost mistaked it for the metal pipe corroding through. Now anytime your messing with the hoses it is best to just change the thermostat. They are cheap and easy. I would try that and go from there. Also how hot is it getting? 220 degrees is normal for jeeps. Should go a little past the middle line. Then the fans kick in and bring it back down. Also squeeze the hoses once it gets all the way hot and see that they have full pressure in them.

I have a 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee. My problem is that my C/T guage reads about three degrees higher on the outside temperature side than the actual temperature is. I realize that might be a minor problem,...

Are you talking about the coolant temperature (c/t) or the ambient temperature (outside temp). If you're refering to the ambient temperature the problem is the sensor is located under the radiator support and picks up the temperature off the pavement this is done intentionally to help detect icing conditions and unfortunatley there is no calibration for the sensor.
