Check bypass hose, on THE water valve to the heater core.The watervalve may not be returning the water back to the front of the engine the back of the heads are running too warm,it has to circulate in the bypass hose or through the heater core,common for chrysler v8,s .Bypass the watervalve completely to see if it runs cooler. If not,try to find a better radiator more cooling capacity!

Radiator fan runs at high speed all the time wont slow down. 2004 limited V8


If your thermostat is bad, it will cause the ecu to keep the fan running at high speed since the engine is remaining hot from limited coolant flow. Have the thermostat checked and changed if it has never yet been replaced.

Cooling fan not kicking on causing the jeep to over heat. Replaced the termstat and temp sensor, on a 00 jeep grand cherokee.


Check the fan operation by disconnecting the fan wiring. Using the battery use a set of jumper wires to see if the fan runs directly off the battery.

Very rough idle on 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited Edition V8


If you haven't changed the plugs or had the fuel system cleaned, now would be a good time to do it. The number 1 culprit for rough idles is dirty injectors or plugs. You can try an injector cleaner in a can (or bottle) for under $10 and see if it helps, and then work from there. If there isn't any improvement then if you are able to, check the plugs for any gunky buildup and if you find a bad plug, make sure you replace them all (or have them replaced) at the same time.

Replaced radiator on 2008 jeep now gets hot & cuts off


I think it is related to the cooling system, still having air in it. Make sure the heater is running/on when your running the engine. Could be a faulty ECT sensor (engine coolant temp.) but proof it out. proof it out, remove the sensor and see if there is air behind it and see if the sensor is within parameters.

Replace leaking radiator 2000 Grand Jeep Limited V8


Radiator removal is not that difficult but too long to write out. Pretty much it involves removing the brace above the radiator and any fans, hoses and lines attached to it. When re-filling do so with heater on full hot to allow coolant to circulate fully through system. I prefer to run engine to the point that temp is at about 200, then turn it off for a few minutes, the thermostat will then open and you can re-start and begin filling again.
