Well, I've done:
-Complete with OCD coolant flush, running Mopar HOAT now.
-Water pump gasket. Allowed me to check the pump and it's all good
-New thermostat from Mopar and a new rad cap
-PS fluid change. Sucked out fluid with a turkey baster, refilled + repeat many times. Bled air by raising front tires off the ground and did the stop to stop turn thing. Running correct mopar fluid
-Trans fluid change with new filters
My Jeep runs at 203 pretty much all the time. Gauge sits just below the middle mark on the dash. I use my climate control to see the digital readout of the temp.
-Twice this past summer it crawled up to 223+. Once after getting off the highway during a 96 degree day with massive humidity (making it feel like 120) in a parking lot. I thought the temp looked high on the dash, so I popped on my digital display and watched it go from 117 to over 220 and keep climbing. I hopped out and looked under the hood. My cooling fan was spinning, but not WAILING. It was faster than normal, but I thought it should be faster...
I shut down and went and did some shopping. Came back and started it up, temp was 117 hit the HWY and right back to 203
-Second time was in heavy traffic in the city on another hot day. Temp just kept going up and was around 223 and rising, but then the traffic broke and when I got moving again, the temp went back down.
-Is this normal??? Shouldn't my cooling fan be able to handle these hot situations by speeding up and compensating?? I'm worried that if I hadn't gotten out of that traffic jam the temp would have just kept climbing....
What temp does your hydraulic fan start to really come on strong? Does your 4.7 ever get above 225?
Thanks for reading my post guys, any insight as always, is much appreciated.
