1995 Jeep Cherokee Country 4x4 - Truck continues to overheat a short while after starting. Have replaced radiator, thermostat in line, & flushed system unti it ran clear. Added new antifreeze and water and will run correct temp for short while (10-15miles) then temp gauge starts climbing again. Any help will be greatly appreciated!

    I also have a 1995 jgc 4x4 and it runs at 210. i have changed the fan clutch- thermostat-and a NEW radiator and it is still running @ 210. last fall i went to colorado and half way up a mountain dirt rd it boiled over and i had to stop, it was only a class 1 road but fairly steep. I live in tx but it should not run constantly @ 210 with a 180 thermostat.my next plan of attack is to pull the heads and see if i have a bad head gasket blowing into the cooling system. i have been told that they make a test kit for checking for engine gasses in the radiator maybe i will do that before i pull the heads.

Try a new radiator cap, it might old and not holding pressure

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)."

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

98 Jeep Overheating


I think you may need a new radiator core.Flushing can only do so much and if the core is badly blocked no ammount of flushing will solve the problem. You could also chech there is no air in the system by undoing one of the heater hoses on the engine. Make sure there is no problem with the bellts and the water pump is spinning. Also check the water pump for any leaks or wobble on the shaft. If the impeller is bady corroded you can have heating problems.

I had a new water pump installed on my 2005 jeep grand cherokee laredo as it was leaking. After the installation, the temperature gage is still running hot. Could it be the thermostat?


Thought I answered this one already. but here's the short version. Yes , change the t stat after servicing wp. They become unreliable after any high temps (above normal). Check the electric fan, and the mechanical fan to make sure both are working properly. If all else fails. remove radiator and back flush. often overheat or high temps can loosen block rust and obstruct part of the radiator core.
When re-filling, turn heater on high to eliminate air pockets in system.
Good luck with it
If you need more info, just ask!

This means your thermostat is bad. Needs to be replaced. Also do coolant flush.

1995 jeep lalredo 4x4 keeps geting hot


The problem with these jeeps is that the older they get the more clogged the radiator geats.
The radiator in the Cherokees are only a single row of tubes.
You can try to flush out the radiator, but replacing it with a heavy duty type is probably a better option.
Your car is not getting enough flow to cool down the engine.
Also you want to check that the electric fan is coming on. There is a coolant sensor in the radiator.
