I really need some help on this one guys. I have a 92 Cherokee with the 4.0 and auto trans.
Heres a quick history of whats going on, and whats been done.
I got the vehicle after the previous owner overheated it and cracked the head.
The vehicle had 180K miles on it. Ultra clean with a 3" lift, for $800. I thought it to be a good deal.
I bought a junkyard head. Brought it to a machine shop and had it checked out. They said it was fine, and just needed new valve guide seals and springs.
I flushed out the block really well for about 15 minutes. Nothing but clear water for at least 10 of the 15. New water pump, thermostat (185), both sensors, hoses, radiator, and fan clutch.
The vehicle was then driven to North Carolina for the past year or so and had no issues. Now that its back in AZ im having trouble keeping it cool.
It runs at 210 if i'm moving. If I am sitting in traffic it will hit close to 220 and stay there. ( I have the electric fan on a toggle right now to keep it on full time. When I shut the vehicle off I can hear the water bubbling in the system and it will rise in the overflow tank and puke out about half a quart.
I am noticing that the antifreeze will get low in the tank (during winter when it doesnt puke). I have no leaks, no oil in the radiator, no anti freeze in the oil, no smoke, or smell at the exhaust indicating a head gasket or head failure. What can I check at this point? Its driving me crazy!
