My Jeep overheated and now it wont start!

2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee

I have a 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee limited 4.7 v8 sohc. The other day my engine overheated on the interstate, by the time I got off and came to a stop it died and wouldn’t restart. What could cause it to not start anymore?

Could be many reasons for the vehicle to overheat. This would be something to look into for sure. As for the reason it wont start. Could be a blown head gasket, dead battery, locked up engine, etc.

What happens when you try to restart it?

  • Bunch of clicks ( click, click, click, click)
  • One hard click?
  • nothing at all
  • cranks over but doesn’t start
