95 Jeep Grand Cherokee V8 5.2 liter
Hi guys. I bought this jeep off of craiglists a month ago. First couple of days I had no problems and then they began to arise. My husband tells me that I should just junk it but I have fallen in love and I do not believe these are serious problems. Can you give me some imput as to what I should do. I have also done some research so I have some ideas..... Here it goes.......
1) I am having problems shifting. The car revs up between 2-3k before shifting, and it sounds like I am stomping on the gas, when I am not really doing that. I think that it is the speed sensor on the transmission? Any thoughts on this?
2) All of the sudden it overheats and the antifreeze pours out. I have to wait on it to cool down add more antifreeze in it and it will drive fine for a while, then it will do it again. I am thinking thermostat and maybe a flushing.
3) Coolant Level Low sign keeps coming on computer dashboard. I am thinking this is the coolant temperature sensor... I have already bought one just need to put it on......
4) It sounds like the lifters are chattering. I believe this is due to the problems on it from 1,2,3.????
Please share some thoughts with me on this? I only paid 1200 for the jeep, because the guy thought it was stuck in 4wd high he was just wrong lol.He just didnt know how to put it in 2wd. It took my brother to work on it...... for two minute and it was fixed. Any helpful info would be great I am in love and don't want to get rid of it.
Thanks so much,
