2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4.7 V8 engine.
I started engine and got this message "Low Coolant Level". Added coolant to bottle but message did not disappear until after I stopped engine and later came back to restart.
I want to make sure something is not wrong, so drove vehicle for 15 minutes and temp is 200 on gauge, stopped and inspected bottle is still full. Upper hose is hot but I can hold it, radiator cap on opposite side of radiator is cold. Lower hose is cold also and metal part attached to engine is only luke warm. Seems to be not flowing hot coolant from upper hose through the radiator. I ran engine idle for additional 5 minutes idle and temp is 200 on gauge still, and hoses feel the same, and radiator cap is same.
Last month I had the coolant flushed and dealer recalled the electric fan to replace it.
Can someone tell me does this sound normal? I am concerned because apparently I lossed coolant out of overflow bottle, it was empty.
