96 country overheating

My jeep runs and drives like a dream but its overheating while in idle and cools down while driving. I just replaced the thermostat so that wasnt the prob...fans work and nothing leaks all fluids look perfect as well.

I wonder if your water pump is crapping out on you , or the drive belt is loose. Ever notice any squealing from the belt?

You did say no leaks, but are you absolutly certain? If the water pump is going out, there is a tiny weep hole in it that should be dripping anti freeze. It could be a small amount you just arn't seeing.

Someone, MUCH more knowledgable than me will be along shortly, I'm sure. lol

Welcome to the forum!

If it cools while driving and overheats while idling then your problem is airflow. I would look into a new fan clutch. When they go out they cause you to overheat at idle because they aren't pulling as much air as they are supposed to.

NAPA part number 272310 is an upgraded one that will pull more air then the factory. Do your self a favor and don't tell them what it is for just ask for the part number. The counter jockeys will tell you it doesn't fit but it fits fine.
