Components that fail and cause overheating on 2004 jeep liberty 3.7L 4x4


How many miles on system. One item that most people never check and it has burned up too many motors to mention is the bottom radiator hose. The hose gets soft with age and it will look normal when you are looking at it, but once the engine is warm and the motor starts running at a faster speed, the volume of water moving through the system creates a suction that collapses the lower radiator hose and the engine gets hot because there is not enough circulation. If you have higher miles or years and haven't changed the upper and lower radiator hose, do so any way.

Does the temp gauge show overheat? If not, then you're not overheating. Possible you have a head gasket problem,which lets combustion gas into the water and can look like boilover.

I fail to see why you tried to ruin the motor
& may have succeeded

Drive 60 miles AFTER it overheats
Then drive 3 weeks without wondering about
the overheating issue

Someone should take the car away from you

Stupid & then tell the whole world on the internet

the problem sounds more like the radatior they tend to start leaking but you don't see apuddle on the ground. Its a fine mist and you loose pressure .

98 subaru, overheating


most likely not. it's most likely the thermostat, it holds the coolant in the engine block to warm it up, then opens to keep the engine at a general temperature range. It goes bad and stays closed, hence the overheating
