Last Saturday I was driving and I noticed my temperature gauge was starting to rise. When it got just before the red zone i pulled over and turned the jeep off. Naturally, I popped the hood to see what was wrong. Checked coolant, plenty in there. No smoke from the engine, in fact, it didnt seem all that hot to me, I had only been driving for about 15 minutes when it started to overheat. I let the engine cool down and I started it back up again and drove a bit further...and again..the engine started to overheat, so i pulled over again. The third try, after letting it sit for a while, I tried to make it home..only about a 3 minute drive, and I noticed the temp going up again, except this time right before it hit the red zone it went back down, all the way down to under normal running temp. Then, it would go back up. So far i have replaced the thermostat and the coolant temp sensor..and im still overheating. Has anyone had this problem?? I have no idea whats going on! It's like the radiator is somehow clogged.
