Sounds like the fan/s are not being commanded on. Could be a temp sensor, relay, bad fan/s, wiring or ECM/PCM issue.

My 2002Jeep Cherokee overheats when driving in town, what could be the reason?


You could have a stuck thermostat, which is relatively easy to replace. It is located where the upper radiator hose ties into the engine. Just remove the hose and the bolts that hold the hose adapter in place and you will find the thermostat there. Remove it and replace it with a new one.

The seat belt and air bag light stay on in my 2002Jeep Cherokee. The mechanic says the problem is the drivers side seat belt buckle. Is he correct?


He would have run a diagnostic scan of the system to decide that, so he could be right and he could be wrong.

Overheating when driving around town with the AC on--how do you fix the propblem?


Now What !

You should have stopped using it when it first overheated,
& had the issues diagnosed.

You need a dealer or repair shop, unless you have a full set
of factory work shop manuals & powertrain control & emissions
diagnostic manuals, for the year of your car,avail from Helm.Com

Engine overheating, from 180 - 210 degrees in just a few minutes. The smell of overheating was obvious. Not doing ANY unusual driving, just going from one part of town to another in 50 degree weather. ...


You should replace the thermostat first as it may be sticking. If no difference then change the radiator cap as it may not be opening to allow coolant to flow to the overflow reservoir. Also make sure there is nothing blocking the overflow tube or tube connections.

If you heard a hiss, that's probably what to look for. With your engine running, wiggles all your vacuum lines around, and try to find that hiss again. It will be a broken or cracked or loose vacuum line somewhere. A stethoscope, or a length of fuel hose held to your ear can sometimes help you find them.
