Question about Jeep Grand Cherokee
Get your car to a repair garage immediately.
It sounds very much like your Grand Cherokee has a failed water pump and that the resulting uncirculated coolant is "kettling" (boiling) as a result. Left unresolved this will cause very severe engine damage. A new or reconditioned pump is relatively cheap, but the labour is the same as for having a timing belt replaced (if fitted to your vehicle). If your Grand Cherokee has a timing belt then as it has to come off to replace the pump it's a false economy not to replace that item as well.
Hopefully the garage will discover a far cheaper and simpler cause, but due to the very serious potential cause of your fault you need to get direct expert inspection done without delay.
