Thermostat probably sticking or the temp sensor going out, my money on thermostat
thermostat bad SHOULD get stuck open and just take longer to reach operating temp
LMAO!!! Dirt in the radiator fins, hah! Well, I guess you would know!!!
I dont know what you would be refering to
Runs a little cooler on the highway w/o AC, radiator is clean...made sure of this when I put the SPAL in.
Thermostat.... will change that out, cheap and easy to check / replace.
It only does it on really hot days, 95 degrees plus is when I noticed it. Drove it hard on the highway 80mph + the other day running A/C on high and it never got much over half, outside temp 80-85.
What could the A/C problem be?
If it still runs hot past the half way mark without the a/c on, it IS the radiator being blocked I guarantee it, you might think you got it cleaned good but I've thought that also and wound up the only way to get it clean enough was to remove it from the jeep, you'll be able to get the ac condenser good then too. I've had another member do the same thing, removing and cleaning his out fixed it. Like I've said before the stock radiator SUCKS, fins are to close together, get a little dirt in there it clogs up easy.
these were taken after I tried hosing it off in the jeep, doesnt look to dirty in the jeep right
my griffin cleans out a LOT easier, more space between the fins. I've never had to pull it to clean it and actually have only had to clean it a few times verse cleaning the stock every other time in the mud once it got a little dirty.
