Sounds like the water pump is trying to go out, Keep a eye on it, If fan is working at all it shoukd'nt let it get hot. It could even be your hose collapsing, Even though not leaking. good luck on it.

Yes it could very well be the fan. When sitting still the fan in the only thing that can create air movement thru the radiator to cool it.

Vibration at 1500 rpm


Hi Anthony, I'm glad to help!

Anthony, I'm only giving you some guidelines here because I have no idea if your actually driving down the road or sitting at an idle when this vibration occurs. Most vibration from the engine sitting at an idle are usually from pulleys on the front of the engine being loose or out of line with the others or even bent and the vibration gets worse at higher RPMs. Here's what you need to do. CAUTION: WITH THE ENGINE NOT RUNNING!!! Try to move each pulley to see if one of the pulleys is loose, if you find one loose then replace that part and it should go back to normal unless you have another problem as well. Then of-course you need to check for other things that could be causing the issue. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Anthony.

If your car is overheating then everything is not ok in the cooling system. If it happens mostly in traffic make sure the coolant level is not low and that the cooling fans are functioning.

Car temp went up air condination blew hot while stuck in traffic but once traffic moved everything was fine again


Your electric fan for the radiator is not working. When sitting in traffic you will need the fan for air flow which cools the radiator and air conditioning condensor. When driving fan is not needed do to air flow from driving.

On a 2006 Jeep Commander when the vehicle is sitting idles very roughly from 500 to a 1000 rpm. Any advice?


TRY THIS.
Here are some of the causes of surges, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.
