210 is totaly normal for the 4.0 . The bubbleing back into the over flow could just be a weak radiator cap. Replace cap and see if it stops.

I see that this is your first post, soooo Welcome to the forum. TexasSam is correct, 210 is right where it should be.

Yes that is actually normal for most cars. ( so is the 210 on Jeeps) When you turn the car off the fluid is no longer circulating and thus the coolant and everything in the whole coolant system actually heats up as more heat is drawn from the block of the engine. It is called engine soak if I remember correctly. That is why most cars that get hot will spill over a little antifreeze a few minutes after they turn off the engine.

is it HOT

thanks to all for the GOOD news makes me feel better it has been 10 years since my last jeep and it wasn't as fancy as this one but it sure is great being back in a Jeep. This one has a 3" superlift on it which I have not made up my mind whether I like it or not as it seems to be much rougher than my other two jeeps (80 CJ7 and 84). But I can't wait to "doll" this one up!!!!!!!

thanks again
