JEEP CHEROKEE Bleeding Procedure for 1988 XJs Radiator

Does anyone know the proper way to bleed the system on a 1988 jeep cherokee XJ I have replaced my hoses T stat and radiator. I filled the tank up with 5050 mix and started the vehicle. The air was escaping from the system in the expansion tank. The temp gage was over 220 so I decided to shut it down. Since this is a closed system how do you bleed it properly when replacing hoses Should I take off the upper hose and pour the mix into the neck Thanks...

JEEP CHEROKEE 1988 Cherokee overheating

My cherokee has a 4.0 engin it overheats with in 5 minutes of driveing. I installed a new water pump (not a rebuilt) and thermostat. I can feel any coolant flow in the upper radiator hose.I make shure the coolant level is full every time I try something new and It still over heats. Any help in solving my problem would be great.

Sounds like the radiator to me seeing as it overheats in just 5 minutes of driving. My 88 was heating up (only at idle) and upon checking I found it had a single row radiator in it. Look for a GDI 3 core radiator. It will help. you will find the XJ will probably still be a bit hot at Idle. This is due to the factory water pump design. Flowcooler make a better water pump that wqill fix the idle heat

Sounds like a clogged radiator or a head gasket. To check the radiator dis connect the hoses and force water in the top and see what comes out the bottom. To check the head gasket fill the system start the engine and see if you get air (conpression) out the surge tank. good luck

Hi folks. I have an 88 jeep cherokee Laredo 4.0 6-cylinder. A few days ago after I filled it up with gas i came to a stop sign (kind of a sharp stop) and my car died. It started up again and at the next stop sign it stopped again and would not start. It would turn over but didnt sound like it was getting gas (no chugging sounds). I pushed it to the side and after 10 minutes it started up OK. I thought

THis is what that unit looks like. It is right underneath the bracket that holds the radiator overflow bottle.

Did you burp the coolant. Also that cap is needed. There is a closed cooling system in the 1988. Needs to be sealed.

The 1988 has a closed cooling system and needs that cap on and to have the air burped from the system. Then the bottle needs to be filled to the proper level.

I have been fighting a bucking and missing problem on the 88 cherokee with 4.0 and auto. Already did all the regular things like new tpsplugswirescaprotorcleaned grounds etc. when I replaced the tps I adjusted it from tranny side.

i have 89 4.0 ...over heated...replaced upper and lower hoses thermostat waterpump serp belt fan clutch. cannot figure a good way to burp the system.....found temp sender unit .....is there an easier way .......please help

JEEP CHEROKEE 2000 Jeep Cherokee overheating problem

Hi Huysgals Newbie here. We have a 2000 cherokee LTD with about 190k on it. The radiator blew a month ago and I replaced it along with the drive belt. All was fine. 2 days ago it started overheating. It warms up normally to 210. It creeps to 220 in about 5 minutes. Fan comes on normal. After about 10 minutes at 220 it shoots all way up to the red. I swapped the Tstat no luck. Still doing the same thing.

Just an additional note related to jeep overheating. on my o ld 1988 I-6 cherokee. the coolant reservoir failed. .It Blew another mech did all kinds of stuff to tune of about 400 finally traced it to reservoir. said oh these fail all the time. duh this is the I-6 with NO radiator cap just reservoir. What should have been about a 105 job c. 1999 turned into 400. and they left rear lug nuts lose. I found out in rush hour freeway traffic in Birmingham. that was when we parted company
