Obviously the belt that broke! The overheating problem is most likely the fan not turningwhich cools the radiator. Check the pulley where the shaft connects to the fan and that will be theone that needs replacing. If you had a belt that broke, I would suggest changing all your belts and hoses. This prevenative maintenance is cheaper than a tow.

Engine Cooling problem 2000 Jeep Cherokee 4 cyl


Although the 4 cylinder is too underpowered to have air conditioning in my opinion, it still shouldn't overheat within 10 minutes unless something is wrong. If your Jeep doesn' not overheat when you are driving WITHOUT AC on then your compressor might have a problem and causing the engine to work too hard to turn it.

But if it overheats without the AC on, then the first thing you need to do is check the cooling fan and see if it operates! There has been a lot of problems with the cooling fan relay on this model. If that isn't it, then move to changing the thermostat and checking the water pump.

1999 Mercury Cougar started overheating. There is no coolant loss; no water pump squeal etc. We replaced the thermostat with no effect on the overheating. It appears as if the electric radiator cooling...


My 1999 Cougar started running hot and I took it to my mechanic and he found that the water pump belt was broke. Replaced belt and all is well. Hope this help.

1. check they are not too tight. you should be able to push finger into longest free length of belt by about 1 cm.

2. check belt is not too loose as can overheat and break off.

3. check no grease or oil on belt pulleys. belt can slip and overheat and break

4. turn on engine when you install belt check to see that all pulleys attached to the belt turns. if one of the pulleys is seized and wont' turn properly, can overheat belt.

5. check pulley surface for cracks. must be smooth.

6. finally are your belts the correct width?
