Hi there, if you have flushed any engine and have changed thermostate there are only two options that are left; (providing that there are no leaks) 1. the thermostat is faulty / 2. your water pump is broken and needs to be replaced

1998 4.0 liter jeep Cherokee over heats i changed water pump and radiator thermostat and still over heats?

Many times after a Jeep cooling system is repaired, air bubbles trapped in the system will cause a overheat situation. If it is a 4.0l, with the engine cool remove the heater hose that is connected to the thermostat housing and fill the cooling system with the engine off. When coolant starts coming out of the engine side the system is almost as full as it gets.

What should you check first if you have no leak and changed the thermostat in 97 escort and have no heat?

I had no heat in my escort either. A new thermostat, cooling system flush, new heater core, another new thermostat, ect. but nothing worked. Still only slightly warm air from the vents. The thermostat housing has a thermostat bypass in it. This bypass is always circulating coolant through your radiator. I plugged mine off with a thermostat gasket and now my car heats and blows hot air with no complications. Good luck.

Coolant at proper level? System air bound and needs to be purged? Water pump not circulating coolant? Defective thermostat? Collapsed radiator hose?

What happens when the thermostat fails?

When the thermostat in your car fails it usually fails to open which in turn does not allow radiator water to pass through the engine and cool it, so the engine over heats.
