Question about 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee
I overheated badly the other night, due to just buying the car and not knowing it was devoid of coolant. No warning bells went off, so I was flying down the highway when smoke started coming out of the engine, and it clattered when I accelerated. I noticed the temp gauge in the red, and pulled over. It smoked for a while (not badly) and I came back for it later. I filled it full of coolant, directly into the radiator (it took about 14 liters) and replaced the radiator cap with a new one, just in case. It's still overheating - the temperature jumps up into the red within 10 miles, but there's no noises or other indicators that there's a problem. It drips a small amount of coolant when parked, but not enough to be a serious drain. Any suggestions?
I think you may have warped the heads which will cause it to continue to over heat.if its blowing any kind of smoke out of the tail pipe you may havelost your head gasket as well

If it was me I would try changing the thermostat first because if you get it that hot the thermostat came fail and its cheaper than a head gasket and to know if it is your head gasket or block see if there is any water in your oil or any oil in your coolant
