Over heating

Asked by Sep 14, 2016 at 02:01 PM about the 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Starts well, runs good for a short while, but after 8 or 10 minutes over heats, warning lights come on, up over 250 degrees. I have replaced thermostat and checked it again. Suggestions?

I used to have a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited with the same issue. After I replaced the alternator the problem went away

does it over heat at a steady speed ? 50 mph..check for a rad hose collapsing..fan/s off.rad need to be serviced rodded out?

Negative, I get in and start it up, head for somewhere and w/i 8 minutes it's up to 250 and check gauges lights are on.
