Jeep Cherokee 1995 overheating


#1

Why is it that after 15 minutes of idling the coolant starts to boil up and spill and the car begins to overheat?


#2

It could be a couple of possibilities. One is that the coolant is not circulating correctly, maybe due to a blockage, and not able to cool down in the radiator. The other possibility is that the head gasket is breached, allowing combustion heat and gasses to overwhelm the cooling system.


#3

Thermostat, water pump, coolant fan, clogged radiator, just to name a few causes.
