Engine Cooling problem
1991 Jeep Cherokee 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 175000 miles
My son's Cherokee is a recent purchase "fixer upper". It runs strong and is in good mechanical shape now but for one thing. The electric engine cooling fan only turns on and off if the heat or vent positions on the cars interior heater are selected. It runs about 195-210 on the gauge when driving, but if allowed to sit and idle it will begin to overflow through the coolant tank. If I turn the heater on at that point the electric fan comes on and it immediately starts to cool and soon stops overflowing. We live where the outside temperature is usually in the nineties, and would really like to get this worked out. Any help is greatly appreciated.
have the same problem?
