Check the catlitic converters. it has two. After running hot , it probably runs a real lean mixture and that will ruin the converters, and car will run rough.And in some cases it will not stay running properly after getting overheated. If the converter checked out ok then other possibilities to be checked are. 1) the radiator. 2) The radiator fan.It should start  running when jeep  gets overheated.If not then this is the cause. 3) The freon/coolant problem.Either a coolant leak or jeep low on coolant. 4) The water pump leaking.Or the water pump blocked or loose.Check it first before going for replacement. 5) The faulty ac thermostat. 6) The sensors.IAC and O2 sensors. Get the coolant pressure tested first to continue troubleshooting.At any local car garage the pressure test is done. Also for more help then its advisable to get jeep scanned at diagnosis center to get error codes, At diagnosis center you will receive the error code.As per the error code it will detect the exact faulty part in the jeep due to which the problem is occurring.For more help :--- at www.autozone.com its absolutely free to get car scanned.
Thanks. keep updated for any more query.you can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

2001 jeep Cherokee running hot


If you have the 4.0L six cylinder those run hot. 210-220 degrees. If the cooling system is fine, both fans are working and it's not overheating you can try adding a bottle of "Water Wetter" to the coolant. I also changed my radiator cap to an 18psi which seemed to help run slightly cooler. You find it at the autoparts store.

My 1997 Jeep grand cherokee is running real rough when I accelerate. Now while driving it it keeps stopping but will start right back up? help???


check the cables of the spark plugs, some times it occurs that the cables get loose from its plastic retainers and touch any metal in the engine, causing missfire of the related spark plug, hence rough running of the engine. Put all cables on the retainers making sure none touches the bare metal of the engine. That should help.
