I could decipher most of it. Do not continue to drive your Jeep, you won't get far anyway, and if you do continue to drive it, you'll be swapping an engine instead of a $10 thermostat. The AC will do nothing for you, it's turning on the heat in the cabin that helps when your in trouble.

good answer, that is why I light gauges not idot lights, watch the temp and keep the heat on high and change thermostat right away. fix.. heat will kill your motor...
