Question about 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee
When an engine overheats, unless a huge quantity of coolant goes into a cylinder, (from a blown head gasket) it will generally be fine and can be re-started.. OK, so now you have another engine and that too is overheating?
First thing I'd check is the electric fan and if you have a mechanical one, check that too.
If the old engine severely overheated it could damage the transmission (both are cooled by the radiator)
If the transmission has an overheat switch on it, it can shut the engine down. On the other hand, the engine you just had installed may be bad.
I'd definitely have another shop check it out and see if there is anything wrong with the installation.
Before any good shop releases a car, especially after a large job such and an engine r&r, they test drive it and make sure everything is working. Somehow it doesn't appear that was done.
One important thing...When any engine begins to overheat, do not drive it. Driving can cause a small problem to "snowball" into a huge job!!!
