this is not regarding a camaro. this is acutually regarding my sister's jeep cherokee 4.0. my sister's jeep is overheating. she doesnt know when it stated. i had the thermostat changed for her but it still is overheating. its actualy kind of strange after the thermostat was changed. i thought it was just that it was low on coolant as when i drove it home for her, the temp would go down when i accelerated but would climb quickly(in a matter of a couple of sec) when i came to a stop. it is like when gas gauge would go up and down when stopped or acceleration. i dont hear anything in the water pump so i would asssume that it is working properly. as i let it sit when i filled up with coolant, after a while the i watched the coolant start to rise/bubble so i put the cap back on and it started to just leak out of the cap. i know with a bad cap, it might get hotter but i dont think it would overheat. is there a chance that it can still be the water pump? i could almost swear that i saw the water flowing into the reservoir meaning a good pump. oh, by the way, as far as the termostat, when it was pulled out, it was seemed to be stuck in the open position with me thinking that it might have not been the termostat because with it open, water would still flow. any other suggestions?
