Coolant isn't circulating in the engine of a Jeep 2002 Grand Cherokee V8. Radiator was just replaced as well as the water pump and thermostat.


Hi Jonny, While the engine is cold the thermostat will be closed, allowing coolant circulation around the engine block and cylinder head but not through the radiator. Only when the engine has reached normal operating temperature will circulation be noted in the radiator. A good test is to remove the thermostat while the engine is cold , start the engine with the radiator pressure cap removed and observe flow. If as I suspect it is there, refit the thermostat and check the heat gauge. If all remains well there is no problem. If the engine overheats replace another thermostat. If there is no circulation with the thermostat removed, there is a blockage in the cooling galleries of the engine. If chemical flushing does not clear it, it will require disassembly of the engine with careful step by step inspection at every stage. If the cylinder head(s) had been removed I would suggest making sure of the galleries not being blocked by installing the gaskets incorrectly. Regards John

My 1998 Jeep Cherokee Sport 6 cyl. acts like it wants to stall. I recently had a thermostat sensor replaced and that seemed to fix the problem. However two months later, the problem has returned. A


I'm assuming you mean a coolant temp sensor. The sensor tells the computer what the coolant temp is.
Normally when a sensor fails the check engine light comes on to warn the driver. Normally but not always.
One thing that could affect both problems you describe is the idle air control valve. If the valve fails or sticks, the engine can stall or have a high idle speed. The computer controls idle speed by how much air is allowed into the throttle body.
The throttle body could also be very dirty.

I recently replaced the heater valve on my 92 Cherokee, but the temperature still reached near the red zone after a 10 mile drive on the highway followed by an city drive of approximatly 12 blocks. Is...


Your heater control valve will only cause you problems if it leaks or fails to switch to "off" in AC mode. It will not cause the engine to run hot. (unless it leaks coolant). You did put the hoses back where they belong?
I'd replace the thermostat as they can get stuck partially open. On a 92 I'd also suspect the radiator as having excessive rust plugging part of the core. Most times flushing won't get the rust out unless it's done by a radiator shop. Normal temp should be near 210 (f). Use a 195 thermostat.

Jeep overheats quickly at city driving , not at highway. and quickly cools down? had thermostat replaced. what could it be


city driving does not force air through the radiator like highway driving does. if it has overheated, suspect a blown head gasket caused by expansion of the head when warm rubbing against the gasket and tearing it. could be the water pump, pull a heater hose and start engine. if coolant blasts out, pump is working. caution!! coolant may be hot!!! if it trickles, you have a restriction or a bad pump. stupid question, you have coolant in the radiator, right?

The heater is my Jeep is not blowing very warm air. It puts out mild heat at best. I have a 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo.


I would recommend flushing the cooling system and replacing the thermostat.....easy to do and only about $14 for a new thermostat.If that does not work then you either have a coolant leak somewhere or a bad heater core. I would also pressure test your cooling system before you flush the system to look for leaks in the system

Replaced radiator on 2008 jeep now gets hot & cuts off


I think it is related to the cooling system, still having air in it. Make sure the heater is running/on when your running the engine. Could be a faulty ECT sensor (engine coolant temp.) but proof it out. proof it out, remove the sensor and see if there is air behind it and see if the sensor is within parameters.

Engine overheating at high rpms


check the casting on your replacement water pump..4.0l engines require a reverse rotating water pump..may be causing your problem.

Try changing your temperature gauge (temperature switch). It's located right next to the thermostat (at least on my 1992 it is)

"The temperature switch supplies engine coolant temperature data to the MCU. Until the engine is sufficiently warmed (above 135°F/57°C), the system remains in the open loop mode of operation (i.e., a fixed air/fuel mixture based upon engine rpm)."
