Question about 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee
Nothing special there, just run the engine with the heater on full heat and slowly add coolant. Providing the system is working properly (radiator not plugged or bad thermostat) it should continue to fill till the thermostat opens, a bit will then belch out and the level will drop. Then continue filling 'till no more will go in. (a plugged radiator generally takes coolant very slowly...far slower than normal)
Only thing that will cause it not to fill properly other than what I mentioned would be if you have a bad head gasket or crack in the head. That will continue to put exhaust into the cooling system and displace coolant. (usual other symptoms of that are steam from tailpipe or coolant in the engine oil) Test is a hydrocarbon test either by using a dye or a "sniffer" machine.
