Re: radiator problem, I think?
Not likely, but you can flush the entire system, and that would give you an indicator of the condition the engine is in internally. Smell the overflowing coolant, if it has a burned or exhaust like smell, you need to look at your engine gaskets.(Cyl Head gasket) especially. in a worse case scenerio, the heads themselves may need to be looked at. When you get a cracked head, you typically get a condition where the pressure the engine makes, pushes to coolant back through the system end up in the overflow bottle. I love jeeps, so good luck with this repair.

Check the coolant level. If coolant drops frequently check for leaks especially on the hoses, radiator and on the water pump. Check if the fan is working by pulling the plug of the temperature sensor on the lower radiator hose. It should run while it is unplugged. Check as well the radiator cap for corrosion. A bad radiator cap would mean steam would escape the system.
Did u bleed the system to get rid of the air. Put fluid in the resovoir, open the bleed valve on the slave cylinder, put a hose on the bleeder valve and into a container with clean fluid and pump the clutch until no bubbles-close the valve and remove hose, check resovoir and top up--system is now bled.
If you are trying to solve an overheating problem this will not achieve anything, but if just to clean out dirty coolant this is how its done.. When engine is cold !!! with radiator in vehicle. 1/ Remove Top and bottom radiator hoses. 2/ Insert garden hose into bottom hose connection of radiator (Use a rag to help seal the connection) turn on water fully to reverse flush radiator till water comes out of top connection, repeat a couple of times. 3/ Reconnect hose to radiator , fill with clean water only. 4/ Run engine till it reaches normal temperature, then switch off engine and allow to cool. 5/ Remove bottom hose to drain system again, refit hose and refill with a good coolant mixture according to you climate.
