How do you fix overheating issues in a Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo?

Asked by Jul 31, 2015 at 07:25 PM about the 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My jeep overheats when I'm at an idle. It
doesn't shake or feel like its going to die out
it runs as if all is okay. Once I drive on the
freeway or thru town with not much stop
and go my temp goes back to normal. My
air conditioner will blow warm air once the
car starts to overheat and then cool again
once the temp goes back down. I just
replaced my radiator, water pump, as well
as my top hose. I've burped the lines.
Tested my thermostat and all seems to be
fine. Please help me figure out what I'm
missing and need to replace.

Your fans they electric check the fan relays if they good take wire insert into plug going to fan then to bat if fans come on they good it's a relay or control mod if they don't then the fans are bad

Thanks for the advice on testing my fans. They were coming on and then apparently not coming on. Changed the fans and now all is good. My car hasn't been over heating and is running like a champ. Thanks again!
