A/C Condensor

Will the A/C Condensor have any part in the cooling of the JEEP?

i took off my front aluminum plate from my bumper because the Temp would go up while driving on the higway,after i took it off it was fine,wouldnt get past 210....but now when i turn my A/C on the temp goes up to the next line after 210??? any ideas???

I'm not sure if I completely understand the question here but yes, working A/C system contributes to the engine temperature, more load+hot ac condenser = heat.

Good things to start replacing under the regular maintenance: radiator cap, thermostat, fan clutch, radiator. 96 with the original radiator is no good, way overdue

It's also a good idea to clean out the radiator and condenser from the back. A combination of air and water do a good job. If there's gunk between the fins, you're losing airflow.

I'm fairly confident you'll see vastly improved cooling with your newly found airflow.
