1 Answer

the mechanic I took the jeep to found out that the water pump they sold me was backwards. there's like a star in the back of the water pump. The part that goes into the motor. well, that star I didnt know that there was left and right. the water pump fit right but it was a model for a grand cherokee not a sport,. so instead if pumping water into the motor the water pump wouldnt allow the water to go in. also,we romoved the thermostat for a more flouent flow of water. jeep is running great now.
