Overheating 2 cooling fans

Postby Chrisbryden » Thu Sep 22, 2016 6:30 pm

So I have a 2000 jeep grand cherokee laredo with a 4.0 in it and it likes to cheap up to about 212 and just over. Did a new water pump new thermostat and put a new radiator bc mine had a small holes in the bottom. I was thinking about running to cooling fans. One in front of the radiator and condenser and the other in the stock location. Anyone every do something like this before and has it worked to keep it cooler.

Mine is always at 200-210. If the factory fans are working, you had good coolant flow it shouldn't get hotter then that. Make sure the electric fan is actually coming on. Or you don't have the crap head that's leaking. If you want to keep it cooler just put the stock elec fan on a switch other throw an aftermarket temp control so it comes on before 210 like the factory one does. Or if you don't use a/c you can ditch the condenser in front of the radiator to improve flow.

I got it fixed it was an air bubble. I also have the fan on a toggle a day had to reverse the fan polarity the idiot I bought it from had it backwards.

I had an issue with my 00 xj overheating, turns out my mechanical fan clutches were smoked. No longer an issue even with my plow on at highway speeds.

If your rig has a fan clutch, check it also.
