#2293 of 2588 Jeep Cherokee - cooling fan
Jan 06, 2008 (11:34 am)
I have a 1996 4.0l Cherokee auto. For several weeks, the electric fan has not been cutting out occasionally when I switch off the ignition - running on after the engine has cooled. A couple of days ago - it started running all the time - with the engine running and after switching off. At the moment I am disconnecting the battery to stop it running. Can anyone help, please ?
I am a retired beancounter...not very techy, I must confess.

The problem might be that the heater control valve, (it lets the water from the engine come into the dash), may not be opening. I have a 96, but I think they still are controlled by vacuum. On the passenger side of the engine compartment you should see two hoses going into the firewall. one has a valve on it. while the engine is running, have someone slide the selector from cold to hot. You should see movement on that valve as it opens and closes. The problem may be as simple as the
connector hose may have fallen off the valve due to dry rot! If this is the case, you should hear hissing as air is being pulled in that hose. A small piece of hose would probably fix that. One more thing- make sure the radiator is full of coolant! If its not, you may not have enough coolant to go through the heater core. (Have to say this:never open a hot radiator!)
If this doesn't help post another, and we'll (or someone else) can take you from there!

A little more information would be useful for anyone offering to help you. When you try to start your Sport does it make any sounds? Does the engine turn over? Does the engine make any clicking sounds? Sputtering? Do your lights work?

The parking lights will not turn off, both front and rear. They remain on until the battery is dead.

Recently got a jeep and had someone else change the oil, shortly after noticed an oil leak from the piece that bolts to the flange extruded on the side of teh block. It is actually the part the oil filter screws onto, it seem to be leaking were it's two pieces come together. Does anyone know if there is an o-ring or gasket or even better the correct name of the part that the oil filter screws onto?????
