Overheating?


Recommended Posts

My MJ has been giving me fits by overheating. Checked the fluid levels and all is good. Drive it daily with no problems, then about once a week it will overheat.

 

Any advice?

1. Replace the Thermostat.

2. Check the condition of the hoses, might be getting sucked shut. Quality hoses have a spring to prevent this.

3. Flush er out if 1 & 2 don't get results

Thanks, going to have it flushed out on Monday. Wanted to do it myself, but, cannot figure out how to do it with the petcock rusted shut and the overflow bottle system.
