Asked by Jan 26, 2016 at 12:29 AM about the 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I blew the radiator so replaced it with a new one,  
did the hoses and belts at the same time. I now
have a problem,  the overflow tank fills with boiling
coolant when I turn off the motor,  it doesn't run
hot,  just back flows,  changed the thermostat
since but still have the problem.  I hope this makes
sense,  any help please.  Is a 4.7l v8
