2004 Jeep Liberty Sport 6 Cyl 3.70L
Jeep still overheating 6 cylinder 3.7 L, 04
I recently replaced my radiator. Soon after my Jeep continues to overheat. I have replaced the water pump, electric fan, thermostat, thermal temperature sensor, flushed it numerous times and burped it every time. Heater works, AC works, no coolant leak or smell. My drive home is 15 to 25 minutes, when I go uphill it seems to overheat quicker. I'm pretty sure my thermostat is opening because when I replaced my water pump and waited for it to warm up, the coolant started circulating as I kept adding more. The only thing I can think of is that I tried to find a thermostat that was a little below the 210 average temp of a Jeep Liberty, and I went for one that said 195 Fahrenheit. Would this make my Jeep overheat, even to the point where it's a 3/4 to max heat on my gauge? I also hear a very slight ticking sound behind my AC / alternator... kind of similar to win a car ticks when it's needs an oil change, but I just recently did that as well. I appreciate any input thanks!
Loss of coolant because of a coolant leak is probably the most common cause of engine overheating. Possible leak points include hoses, the radiator, heater core, water pump, thermostat housing, head gasket, freeze plugs, automatic transmission oil cooler, cylinder head(s) and block.
