    I just bought a 88 Jeep Cherokee Chief 4.0L 4WD. I had test drove it for a hour, on the highway and city. Later that night after driving for about 2 hours after that I put it in park and my radiator started to leak. I had refilled it and drove 8 miles highway. I got to my destination without overheating and without losing coolant. Then I had went to start up and it would turn over rev up then die/stall out a second later. Could the radiator be causing this? Or am I just a victim of wishful thinking and they are 2 in related issues? I'm going to be replacing the radiator

    It is unlikely that the radiator is causing your start/stall issues. The high rev/stall issue can be caused by a number of issues but the first and maybe easiest thing to check is look for vacuum leaks. Check vacuum hoses. Also a leaky intake gasket can be an issue. If that does not work...the MAP sensor "could" be an issue as well.

    Good luck!!
