    Water pump exploded in a really bad part around where I lived so I had to drive an extra 3 miles overheated - I know, very stupid but I'd rather have a ****ed up motor than be robbed or dead so there's that Little rough and High idle RPMs - 1000 minimum but really around 1200-1500rpms Little...

  3. XJ Cherokee Technical Forum
    I know I know... There are a million "XJ overheating" threads but I'm really at a loss here even after reading every forum I could find... I have a 1991 4.0, AX-15, XJ... I overheat while idling, but here's the catch... Everything is new on that car! Motor has 3k miles on it, entire cooling...
  4. JK Wrangler Technical Forum
    I have a 2008 Wrangler X. For the past two years I have had an overheating problem and after 6 trips to the dealer there have been no changes to the problem? The red lighting bolt light comes on randomly and at the same time drops my temp gauge reading to zero (cold?). Here is what has been...
  5. ZJ Grand Cherokee Forum
    So I looked across all the forums and tried to diagnose my particular problem but couldn’t seem to find it. my 96 zj with the 4L runs at a perfect 195 most of the time until I turn on the ac then. It climbs into the 240+ range (I don’t leave it on to find out if it hits the red). This happens...
  6. TJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    Long story short, my husband's '05 TJ overheated, and ever since we can't get it to accelerate past 50 mph. RPMs jump up, but it will not go faster. Need help figuring out the problem. Long story long, had a new serpentine belt put on the thing at an oil change shop. Next day on the hwy, heard...
  7. Jeep CJ Forum
    It's Florida and summertime, the stock gauge says I am pushing awfully close to "H". I do not trust the stock gauge so I added a mechanical water temp gauge. I removed the Temp switch sender (see picture) and added the after market sensor using the brass fitting included in the kit. It...
  8. ZJ Grand Cherokee Forum
    Ive been working on this 99 ZJ for literally weeks now... Let me start by saying the reason the vehicle is overheating is because the electric fan is not coming on. It will not come on when the A/C is on. It will not come on even when it hits 240 degrees. I replaced the relay, which didn't fix...
  9. XJ Cherokee Technical Forum
    Hello, I recently replaced both the thermostat and the temperature sensor, in my 97 xj, country 4wd automatic. The jeep will run fine and for as long as I want if I'm driving staying around 210 degrees. However whenever I stop, and let it idle within 10 minutes the check gauges light comes on...

    I'm preparing for some work, and like everyone, I don't like to waste money where it doesn't really need to be spent. I'm well aware that 'its a good idea to spend the money and do things right'... Well, IMO "right" is in the eye of the beholder. I don't want to pay to have someone machine the...

    First history of the Jeep: 2001 with 165000 miles Has overheating history: New cooling system with the exception of the radiator. Current Status before Check Engine: The coolant would heat up in stop and go traffic, but the electric fan would keep the jeep from overheating. (thinking a new...

  14. XJ Cherokee Technical Forum
    I was driving to work this morning in 45 degree weather, and the termperature light buzzed on at me out of nowhere. I of course immediately pulled over and shut her off, opened the hood and heard a bubbling sound like there may be some boiling going on, but didn't smell any antifreeze or see any...
  15. Jeep CJ Forum
    Good Morning Jeep Fanatics - The name is JP, and my dad just gifted me with a 1974 CJ5 that he bought off of ebay last year. Here are some disclaimers about me: Totally new to tinkering and modifications. I have 2 little boys who want to start turning wrenches and learning. I too have...
  16. TJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    Howdy, everyone! I've been a lurker here for several years, and I finally decided to sign up because I've been having a coolant heat issue on my 2002 4.0 auto that I can't figure out. I have scoured Jeep Forum hoping somebody else out there had the same problem and managed to fix it, but, alas...

Anyway I got to my...

  19. TJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    Hi My car is overheating. At first I didn't know what was going on, and I read that it could be several thing. Among those things was the radiator, thermostat, and water pump. I also read that the AC plays a huge roll. I wasn't 100% sure so I went to my car to see how it reacts when I have the...
