The heater core is nearly the highest thing in the cooling system. If a Jeep has any kind of a body lift it raises the core even more. Flush with a garden hose and fill.

Automotive cooling systems are a closed loop. If you lose coolant the highest component does not get circulation. Check your system for leaks.

Okay, I will check for leaks and go buy more coolant because I don't think I have anymore after school today! Thanks

Hope it's just the clamp and not the radiator.

I got it checked out at a local parts store he said its probably the radiator so I had to buy a new one. I put it in last weekend, and it seems that it shifts better and the heat is super hot just like my dads so I think that fixed the problem. Also my coolant was brown, dark brown. So it probably needed to be changed anyways.
