Excessive coolant pressure????
I seem to be running a really high coolant pressure in my 94???? Any ideas what this might be? Or what I need to check
what temp do you normaly run at? what do you mean by high pressure? the pressure is controlled by the radiator cap. with a stock cap the system will be at about 13-15 psi (it should be stamped into the top of the rad cap)
When you replace the cap make sure to clean out any debri where the cap seals off. If there is grit in there it could cause the cap not to releive pressure like it should. If this doesnt fix it then try flushing the system.....even though if you temp gauge is correct it should not need. Hopfully you dont have a blown head gasket. Has it overheated recently?
Remove radiator cap when cool start your engine let it warmup and look for air bubbles in the radiator. If found, you have a head gasket leaking.
A 89 yj with a 4.0 aw4 sye out of an 92xj. Now the hard part is done time to get it up in the air just a bit. Working on 8.8 with 3.73 and lsd for the rear. and new D30 hp with 3.73 .
For those who have not figured this out I'm old school but can handle the new too.

After replacing it and driving it last night there was a pretty high pitch whistling sound. I'm not sure if it was the belt whistling bc it had gotten wet but I'll check it today
