I have a 99 grand cherokee limited 4.7 that overheats when on the hwy


Sounds perfect to me. The fan sound is normal for a clutch fan. The temps are just not too high at all. Remember, the system has two main points that make the temp okay: Coolant (in the right amount) and PRESSURE. Both seriously raise the boiling point.

At even higher temperatures, Eventually, you should hear the fan kick in, as loud as when cold..This REALLY moves air through the rad and should curtail any overheat.

Is it really the engine which starts running, or is it the hydraulic cooling fan which makes a lot of noise due to the high coolant temperature? Since the temperature drops down rapidly when you start driving, the problem seems to be with a restricted airflow from the cooling fan. Was the radiator changed lately?
Take care in not overheating this engine, because the heads can warp (coolant leak) and/or it can start dropping a valve seat.

98 Grand Cherokee Transmission problem: At hwy speed transmission surges or shifts down RPM'S jump 200 to 300 RPM. Only does it when Transmission is fully warmed up.


check oil level first, than check the electrical connector on the tranny. This sound like the transmission shifts from overdrive to drive. Check the wiring from the transmission to ECU and other items. If than happen again, check the shift cable, kick down cable. If that doesn't help, let the tranny be checked at a servicestation.

You will need to change your thermostat as it is stuck and is not responding correctly to temperature changes. Have your mechanic change the thermo, do a flush of the system and all should be good again.

Brakes engage automatically while I am driving slowing me down and there is a burning odor.


All i can suggest is that you probably have a brake hanging up. To check and see which one it is, drive the vehicle and feel (carefully in case its real hot) to see which wheel is hotter than the others. I use a hand held electronic temperature sensor, but you can tell by feel. Rick

OD light on 97 Jeep comes on when it's cold outside


Calvin...... You need to treat your Jeep to a new THERMOSTAT. The Overdrive is connected to the engine coolant temperature and if the engine is n ot warmed up properly, the Overdrive will not engage. Try to get a thermostat from the Jeep dealer so you will have exactly the right one, some of the cheapoie ones will not work right. Dave in Iowa
