Amateur Needs Help with Jeep Overheating
I'll try to keep this short and sweet.
I've got a 2001 Wrangler Sport that just won't stop overheating. A couple months ago, I took it into my mechanic, turns out it was an issue with the head gasket, which they promptly repaired. It ran wonderfully until a few days ago. I parked and my Jeep began POURING water onto the pavement under the passenger side of the car. Now, if I idle for more than about 30 seconds, it shoots from its normal 210 degrees to 260 plus. When I move, it air cools, so it's essentially back to how it was before I took into the shop. I filled the coolant yesterday, and that helped slightly, but it still has trouble remaining at a normal temperature. I know there is not a leak with the coolant either.
I've found countless threads online about this topic, but none concisely answer my question. Keep in mind that I do not know much about cars in general, so I feel dumb enough having to ask this question in the first place. Any advice, however vague, will help. The Jeep was passed down from my father to me, so it means a lot that I keep it running in top shape.
