#8 of 12 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee
Dec 01, 2011 (2:39 am)
My next door neighbor is selling his 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited. It has 170k miles, but he had a new transmission installed at 135k.
It does look to be in good shape (I haven't tried it out yet); is loaded, comes with 6 new tires and has a new sticker.
He just bought a pick up and no longer needs the Jeep. The asking price is $1,900, which brings me to my question:
Is this a good vehicle (reliable, etc.)? I live in Maine and, when it's not hot enough to toast your lawn, it's snowing like crazy, so I want something that will get me around in the snow. He said everything works; 4WD, all of the power options, etc.
Thanks in advance for any insight!
#9 of 12 engine running cold

I have a 96 jeep gc 5.2L v8, my engine is running cold 120-150 degrees. I replaced my water pump about 2 months ago, every thing ran fine until now. We have had minus degree weather for weeks, my timing cover gasket started to leak. My friend and I put a new timing cover gasket, thermostat, and replaced worn hoses. Now my engine won't get up to temp. Could it be the temperature sensor?

My first guess is that it isn't warming up because the thermostat isn't operating correctly--meaning, it isn't closing to keep the warm coolant within the engine. Is it possible it was installed backwards? If not, I'd suspect a faulty thermostat.

I could have mistakely installed the thermostat in wrong, I'll check for proper installation and test the thermostat to make sure it's not faulty. Thanks

I replaced the thermostat, everything is working ok. My next project is fixing leaky transmission cooler lines.
