No problem. Auto Zone IIRC, has two lines of t-stats, Duralast and Duralast Gold (someone correct me if I'm wrong). The Duralast Gold is a repackaged Motorad, which are a pretty good stat as they're 100% stainless steel and have the bleeder valve as well.

As for the Mopar stat, you can either order from one of the whosalers online/Amazon, Kolak here on the forum or locally at the Dealer.

The bleeder valve is also sometime referred to as a jiggle pin, and is the little brass pin pictured below:

jeep overheating

2003 jeep grand cherokee 4.0
My jeep was overheating. The point where the overflow hose goes to the overflow tank on mine was blocked. Apparently from the factory. There was no hole for the overflow to get back in the tank so check yours. Also, the connection to the electric fan on mine went bad and it started to overheat. I cut the connection off and wire nutted it back together. So check to see if your fan is coming on.
That is all I've got.
