05 Liberty KJ Overheating
My 2005 Liberty suddenly overheated yesterday while stuck in traffic.
Although I live in North Texas it wasn't particularly hot (mid 80s F) but I got steam coming from underneath the hood.
Today I replaced:
- Radiator Reservoir Cap
- Coolant Temperature Sensor
This is as much as I feel comfortable doing without a strong background in mechanics.
Still, after 20 min. idling it goes almost 3/4 of the gauge and I have to stop the engine. Same when I am driving it.
When I open the hood, I can feel the coolant boiling inside the hoses. No leaking visible.
Please, any pointers here will be greatly appreciated before I start throwing money at mechanics.
Thank you in advance!
