Rad capreplace the radiator cap-make shure it is cold! ReservoirJeeps of this type have a plastic reservoir that is pressurized. Don't get me wrong, I love my Jeep Cherokee - but I HATE this system. Especially since Jeeps from this era also have a tendency to overheat - which warps the plastic reservoir and makes it prone to leak at the seams. You'll need to figure out where it is leaking to figure out what you will need to do. The easiest thing to do is to replace the whole reservoir, which is only two tubes and a strap. One tube is out the reservoir's side, the other is underneath the reservoir. The strap holding the whole reservoir to the truck is just held by a buckle. New resevoirs are hard to find, I've seen them on the Net a little. Otherwise a Jeep dealer will sell you one for a king's ransom. Junkyards are usually picked clean, but you may be able to find one. Costthe reservior only cost about 55.00 at the Jeep Dealership I know because I baught one in Florida when mine ruptured

Please, rephrase the question. You say you have a 1989 Jeep Grand Cherokee, but the Grand Cherokee did not come out till late 92, but was considered a 93 model. If what you really have is a 1989 Cherokee, we need to know the motor size. The rest we can look up and give you the best answer possible.
