2001 jeep grand cherokee, 6 cylinder air conditioner will not cool
Driving on long trip, the air conditioner was working fine, some rattles seem to happen on the passenger side, sounded like change in the clove compartment. Then, about 3 hours later, the AC stopped blowing cold air. The on/off switch works, the fan works -- i dont know how to locate the compressor -- but dont think i heard it.No cool air at all.

If you have the 4.0L six cylinder those run hot. 210-220 degrees. If the cooling system is fine, both fans are working and it's not overheating you can try adding a bottle of "Water Wetter" to the coolant. I also changed my radiator cap to an 18psi which seemed to help run slightly cooler. You find it at the autoparts store.
All you need to do on those is on level ground, run it with the heater on high heat with the radiator cap open. Fill as necessary 'till no more can be added, close it up and add vcoolant to the full line on the overflow tank. If you are consistently encountering an overheat and finding air in the system you may have a head gasket or cracked cylinder head that is permitting combustion gasses in there. (a hydrocarbon test at the radiator will tell you that). If you are having any other problem there, ask and I'll try to help.

While your hood is open and engine running can you hear the air conditioner compressor kick on and off as the engines idleing. Check the fuse for the ac unit. And worst case it could be your compressor witch can be pretty spendy.
