from experience i can tell you jeeps are notorious for staying hot once they decide to get that way. so one must adapt. try to flush the engine of deposits . you can try the chemical stuff or have it shop done . cooling system flush. make sure you have the right thermostat. check radiator cap, simple but important. you did not mention fan clutch. does 94' have dual fans or single mech. if dual make sure elec. fan is coming on with temp, not just a.c.. I put an elec. in front of my mech. after all of above. and wired it to . a.c. if its hot the a.c. is on was my logic. working great last three las vegas summers and mountains. of course this in on an 88 woody. never had problems with my 96 or 99 cherokee (knock wood). hope this helped. keep us informed

Shouldn't need anything special. Just make sure all the maintenance is up-to-date. The transmission is the biggest concern, and the best way to keep it cool is to lock it out of OD on the hills so it doesn't shift back/forth to maintain speed. These motors do pretty good, but even with 2500# you will surely notice the weight behind you. Make sure your tires are good and maybe air them a little on the high side. The last thing you want is the tires heating up. Good luck! Driving cross-country is a lot of fun IMHO.
#1430 of 2589 Cherokee Fuel Pump
May 31, 2005 (6:09 pm)
I have an 89 Jeep Cherokee and noticed a humming noise so I had the fuel pump replaced. The noise ceased but now the fuel gauge in the dash does not register and just sits to the far right indicating it is beyond full, also as I drove along the expressway and reached 50-55mph it started shaking uncontrollably, I slowed down thinking I had a flat or something and it started driving alright at about 35 mph. I reached 45-50 and it continued to drive alright, does anyone know what could be causing these problems???
#1431 of 2589 1991 Jeep Cherokee shifting late problem
May 31, 2005 (6:26 pm)
I have a 1991 jeep cherokee with the straight 6 cyl, 4.0L engine. A friend power washed the engine and since then I have been having problems. It shifts at 3,000 rpm between first and second and not too bad into 3rd. Sometimes it shifts into overdrive and sometimes it doesn't. It has also started idling between 2,000 and 2,500 rpm. Since it was time for a tune up I change plugs, wires, rotor, cap, air filter. Now coincidence that he power washed it and now I have problems or could he have inadvertantly blown a hose of somewhere, or is this a vacuum problem. Do these have vaccum or are they cable? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I`m looking at buying a cherokee and wanted to know what to look for. How can you tell if it has a tow package? Is there something in the vin? Thanks for all the help.
#1433 of 2589 Dash Light Fuse
Jun 01, 2005 (10:36 am)
I've got a 96 Cherokee 4.0 (UK model). I made the mistake of removing a few fuses to track down an electrical fault and when I came to put them back I couldn't remember where the 5 amp dash light fuse went. Can anyone tell me what number this fuse goes in as I don't have a fuse diagram. Many thanks.

It wouldn't be in the VIN#. The easiest way is to just look at the hitch. The factory hitch has a built-in 7-pin (large round) receptacle plug built onto it, with a metal guard around it. Most folks wouldn't go to the bother of adding a factory hitch, so that's a pretty good indication it came with the tow package. The electrical plug and guard are on the left side of the hitch.
