i have a 95 cherokee... i wrecked it and got a 89 donor jeep... the 89 cherokee has a reservoir. my 95 u could fill it right in the radiator.... the 89 cherokee radiator was brand new and i put a new water pump and thermostat in mine

i drove it for about a month everything fine now im starting to over heat. i flushed the radiator out a couple of times but when i fill it up it just dont seem like its getting to the motor and my top radiator hose isnt hard its really soft..

any suggestions

I am not sure what you are saying , are you trying to swap the stuff in the 89 or oppositely ?

I beleive the 89 and 95s cooling system are a bit different. One is open and the other is closed. They are not interchangable without mods.
