Question about Jeep Grand Cherokee
Sounds like you may either have a thermostat that is not fully opening or a radiator that is partially obstructed (externally or internally). If I'm correct, what may be happening is that when the engine reaches operating temperature, it is continuing to get hotter but at the point you are at, the fans are able to compensate by remaining on.
Only other possibility is that the temp sender is bad and sending incorrect info to the computer, causing it to turn the fan on.
The concentration of antifreeze in a system does not change the operating temp. What it does is prevent the coolant from boiling at a temperature above what plain water would. Your radiator cap also helps with that as a liquid under pressure will boil at a higher temp. Proper concentration is 50/50. Normal operating temp is about 210 degrees(f). (+ ) (- ) 5 degrees)
So, I'd test the coolant sensor and replace the thermostat. Hopefully the radiator won't need to come out but you may need to have it checked if neither other options work.
