    Just a thought, remove your radiator cap when the system is cool and confirm that your mechanic didn’t add a non compatible coolant. If you see a bunch of gelled up goo, well....

    Is it ACTUALLY hot or does the gauge just say it’s hit. What degree is it running.

    If you stop calling your JEEP a car the running temp will go down at least 15 degrees haha!!!! Sorry I had to. Try throwing a temp gun on it while it's at temp to see if the coolant temp sensor is off.

    You probably already have done this, but you never mentioned. Old radiator hoses will become soft and collapse while driving and this acts like a clog and will cause overheating. With all the work you have done I suspect you have changed the hoses, but thought I would bring it up.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
