Question about 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

I have 2001 jeep grand cherokee, my temp gauge goes to hot after about 10-15 minutes. I've installed a new thermostadt and a new sensor. I don't see any puddles of coolant on the ground and there is no ratle or play on the fan to indicate water pump issues. Any suggetions what else could be causing the problem?

Be certain that your electric cooling fan is coming on. I have the same issue right now. It actually got so hot the first time we noticed there was a problem that it cracked my radiator. Replaced with one from Autozone for $150. Dealer wanted $350. I ordered a cooling fan on ebay that should come in today for $70.

How to test cooling temperature sending unit


Is it the sensor for the gauge or the computer? To test the ECT,one for computer,remove sensor from engine, using an ohm meter, ohm the terminals in the sensor and make note of the reading. Next, boil some water and place the sensor in the water from about 5 minutes and ohm the sensor again. If the resistance reading changed, the sensor is working. The one for the gauge, simply unplug the wire from the sending unit and ground it to the engine. turn the ignition key to the run position and see if the gauge goes to "hot". If the gauge moves while wire it connected to ground, the sending unit is bad.

The temperature gauge on my 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee started running hot (about 3/4 up), as soon as I start moving (even when the car is cold). It comes down to normal (about 50% on the gauge) when I stop...


Change the sensor, but it will run hot like that if you are not moving fluids across it. It is basically measuring air temp for a minute. Could be a totally stuck thermostat. Change both. That cooling system is critical on a cherokee.

My 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee Loredo, straight six, is having a problem that the oil pressure gauge goes to 0 and my check gauges light comes on but when i accelerate it goes back up and the light goes off. ...


Your problem could be the result of a bad pressure sending unit but I would take care of that immediately. If the pressure doesn't return to normal after installing the new unit, do not drive 'til you have a mechanical gauge installed and the actual pressure checked and the problem corrected.

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

Temp gauge goes to full hot while at Idle


Check the auxiliary cooling fan for operation. As the engine temp rises, it should kick on to bring the temp down. U may have a bad motor on the fan, or more likely a bad fan switch.

2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee Engine temg gauge not working


If you changed the coolant temperature sensor and it had a 5 volt ref signal to it then you replaced the wrong part. You need to replace the coolant temperature sending unit.  The coolant temp "sensor" is an input to the ECM for your fuel injection system. The coolant temp "sending unit" is for coolant temp reading at the gauge, It is an NTC switch (negative temperature coefficient) which means as temp increases/resistance decreases.

94 jeep grand cherokee oil pressure and engine temp?


I'm guessing your engine is'nt making any tapping noise with the low oil press.
Your oil pressure sending unit is most likely the culprit.
Is your car smoking when the temp. goes up?
You engine could be air bound or thermostat could be opening too late (might need new one).
PLEASE DO NOT OPEN THE RADIATOR CAP WITH A HOT ENGINE.
