If a 1998 Jeep Cherokee is overheating could the crank sensor be the problem and if so where do you find it?
Hey Tony==The crank sensor is on the rear of some jeeps attached to the bell housing. It in itself won't cause overheating. If you have electric fans, make sure they are operating properly. Make sure the radiator is flowing coolant and not have a bunch of build up. Good luck Joe
A sensor could be the reason why a 94 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo fails to start. The crank position sensor is often the problem. You can try unplugging the sensor for several minutes and then plugging it back in to see if that fixes the problem. Read More

Chances are not the temp sensor. It could be a thermostat or a hose that has a leak. And the one you dare not want it to be is a crack head. Read More
Yes. I had this problem on a 2000 Grand Cherokee. The problem came without any warning that I could notice. I parked it at night and the next morning it would crank and crank but not start. - I would imagine that his problem could happen gradually if the sensor had a broken lead wire or was gradually failing. In my case it was immediate and complete failure. Read More

If you have a 1997 Ford Thunderbird 4.6 V8 that has been overheating could the problem be in the engine fan or the relay switch?
yes...fisrst you need to check if the temp sensor is working. If this has an electric fan, check the relay and the fan motors. or when my 97 4.6 v8 was overheating, it was leaking coolant from the head gaskets. Read More
A 1990 Ford Taurus 3.0 liter gauge shows cold but it is over heating how do you check the heat sensor thermostat and dashboard gauge and what else could be the problem?
The gauge reading has nothing to do with the overheating problem. Misleading and irritating yes, but not involved in causing it. See "Related Questions" below for discussion on replacing the temperature sending unit, and also a comprehensive diagnostic guide for overheating problems. Read More

Its possible that it is the TPS sensor (throttle position sensor) easy to replace yourself and available at your local parts store. It could also be a transmission issue, change the fluid and filter, but start with the TPS sensor its a common problem and cheaper solution Read More
Im looking at buying a 98 jeep Cherokee sport that has overheating issues he said the radiatorwater pump and thermostat was changed but still hits 260what can be wrongis it worth buying?
Hi have you checked the radiator for blockage if it is blowing water back out the radiator this could be the problem. Read More
It could be but most likely the engine is overheating. Could also be that the cap is not holding pressure and needs to be replaced. Read More
This is one of those yes and no questions. Yes: The sensor could be sending bad info the ECU telling it its cold or hot and depending on that answer could lead to huge pressure problem resulting in a break in a line No: You may need to replace hoses/coolant tank/sensor Read More

You changed the thermostat on your 96 lumina ls but you still have problems with it overheating Could the water pump be the problem?
Yes. However, I would check the other components first. Check the fan relay and temperature sensor, and if that is not the problem then check the fan itself. Also, it could be a leaky head gasket, which causes air to be pumped into the cooling system, thus overheating it. Yes, but.... there are several things that can cause overheating on a water cooled vehicle. The water pump, not enough water or coolant in the system… Read More
