1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee Radiator Repair & Service

When to Service Your 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee Cooling System

If you’re not sure what the purpose of a radiator is, it’s hard to tell when to have your Jeep Grand Cherokee radiator serviced. Nonetheless, it’s vital to know what to look for. As part of your car’s cooling system, your radiator helps keep engine temperature regulated. If your radiator isn’t functioning like it’s supposed to, the engine can overheat – or worse, break down.

Keeping up with regular radiator maintenance in your 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee is crucial to keep your engine in the best possible shape for years to come. In fact, Jeep recommends replacing coolant/antifreeze at specific intervals, but it’s a good idea to keep your eyes open for any indication that your radiator is failing. Your radiator could be close to causing an engine breakdown if you notice leaking coolant, overheating, or an illuminated low coolant dashboard light. Visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check at the first sign of one of these issues.

If your radiator is acting up, odds are good that your water pump needs to be checked for proper function, too. The water pump is one part on your 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee engine that needs to be addressed ASAP once an issue is identified. This vital part keeps coolant moving through the engine, hoses, and radiator. Without it, your engine won't maintain its optimal temperature. Our trained technicians can inspect your car’s radiator hoses and pumps to help you stay ahead of any potential engine problems. From the radiator cap to the heater core, your 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee is in good hands at Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Common Jeep Grand Cherokee Radiator Questions

Take care of your 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee radiator and it will last. Check out our top questions and answers about Jeep radiators below, and visit your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign of an overheating engine.

  • Why is the coolant light on my Jeep dashboard on? Pay attention to the temperature gauge and lights on your dashboard. If a low coolant warning light comes on or your dashboard temperature gauge keeps rising, it’s likely that your engine is about to overheat (and could leave you stranded on the road). Wait for the engine to cool down, then have your coolant system checked immediately at your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care.
  •  Is an antifreeze leak dangerous? Notice a leaking fluid that's green, bright orange, or pink and feels sticky? It might be antifreeze. Antifreeze is toxic but has a sweet smell and taste that's attractive to many cats and dogs. Do your pets a favor and have an antifreeze leak investigated ASAP. Then hose down the driveway or garage floor!
  • Do Jeep Grand Cherokee radiators need to be cleaned? To keep your Jeep Grand Cherokee radiator running well, it’s wise to get it cleaned out a few times a year.
