I have a 1999 Jeep Cherokee Sport. It has been running fine until the temperature started dropping outside. The last few nights it has been in the single digits and every morning when I leave for work my car starts overheating. It will jump all the way to 220 then fall back down then up again. After a few minutes it starts running bad, bogging down and started dying when I would stop. I parked it and let it set til the afternoon. I started it up and it is running fine. The first day it did this I drained the water and added anti-freeze. It ran fine that night but started acting up again the next morning. I don't see any visible leaks, only when the car overheats. The heat is also blowing cold. Not sure if this is related to the overheating but when I turn the heat on it makes an awful squeaking noise and drains the battery. Not sure what is going on. Can you help me figure out what my issue/issues are? Thanks so much for the help.
have the same problem?
