Question about 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

I just replaced the engine on my 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo. I replaced the V6 4.0 liter engine because of a blown radiator, although before removing the old engine I had the radiator replaced to help solve the problem. That fell through and the water pump needed replacing, after that didn't work "the rods over heated and were bent" is what I was told. Causing a complete overhaul and replacement of the entire engine. After the switch, I was able to drive for a short period of time. Since then I have replaced the thermostat the thermostat gauge and the air filter. My issue is, why after I start my car, does it still over heat? Then why, after shutting down due to over heating, does it start right back up?

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!!!

How does one add transmission fluid to 1995 jeep grand cherokee laredo?


Look for the dipstick where you check the transmision fluid level. If you need any you pour it down the dipstick hole. Add it in small amounts and check in between additions, its really easy to overfill. Once overfilled a real pain to get it out.

You have to remove the engine fan and radiator shroud and the also you have to unbolt the top of the radiator support and remove it. The radiator basically then lifts straight up, out of the jeep.
