JEEP CHEROKEE ENGINE PROBLEM

1998 Jeep Cherokee • 198,000 miles

Jeep all of a sudden started running hot, had a pin hole leak from the radiator hose, I fixed it, but the valves still tap as if it's running hot. Could that be a caused by my thermostat going out?

No. How hot did you get the car? The overheating could have caused damage

What kind of damage could it have caused?

Valves tapping could also be a valve lash issue. Did you change the oil after the overheating issue?
