I have a 1994 Jeep Cherokee 4.0L with 170k miles. Temp was -18 this morning. Warmed up 8 mins (love remote start). Defrost was on, but when I got in to leave house, no warm output yet. My initial thought was that it was just really cold. After driving short way, switched to regular heat to see if heat would pump out. Within 30 seconds of this, noticed steam from under hood. 10 seconds later temp light came on. I immediately pulled off and shut vehicle down. Really hot coolant was escaping fast from radiator cap. I let her cool down and got her back to the house, less than a mile - temp light did not come back on and no bad noises, so I'm praying no engine damage. Replaced thermostat few months ago along with fresh coolant, so a little perplexed. I'm thinking thermostat, cap, or maybe coolant mixtue ratio. Any advice?
have the same problem?
