Question about 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee
Blew a radiator hose ,replaced it and put liquid glass stop leak in and the heater did not work and vehicle overheated. unfortunely im not sure if the stop leakcaused this problem but i think it did! like a big dummy while running it through the system i turned the defrost on for a 3 minutes which i think was a no no any solutions to the cause!
Stop leak can cause the radiator ports to get clogged. But if your car isn't getting heat, it's probably your heater core. The heater core is usually burried in the firewall between the engine and where you or your passenger put your feet

did u properly bleed the air out of the cooling system? if u are not sure raise the front of the jeep as high as u can with a floor jack, fill the coolant recovery bottle all the way up with 50/50 coolant mix and run the engine until it gets hot, then shut it down and run cold water over the radiator core, this will cause the air to bleed out and the coolant in the recovery tank to be sucked in, watch the level in the recovery while u do this, don't let it run dry. If this doesn't cure the problem you have other problems like a poss blown head gasket.

Run engine normally while filling radiator. Leave heater on high heat. When engine temp reads normal, shut it off, wait about three minutes...re-start and complete filling.

you may have a blown head gasket. if you drain the cooling system and it starts (it'll be very hard to start, still) then you'll know

Since you have already changed everything that you have, I can not think of anything new that might cause your Jeep to overheat. Are you going by the meter in your vehicle or doing separate temperature measurements? I had a defective temperature gauge that caused me to chase my tail till I did separate measurements.
