My jeep will over heat at higher speed as well, if i pull over and let it idle it wont cool down, but by that time it will vapor lock, i am reading the thread vapor lock/vacuum problem AMC360!! on the forum there are a few things im going to try, but i will still have a motor that runs hot around 215 to220, maybe there is something wrong with the motor

Sorry to butt in here, but what did you use for vents on your hood and do you have any pics. I am having a overheating issue as well. Let me know.
