About Heater Valves
The Jeep heater valve is a very important part of a vehicle’s heater system. It’s usually located behind the vehicle dashboard. It works independently of the rest of the cooling system and controls the amount of coolant that is flowing through the heater core. The coolant that flows to the heater core travels through the heater hoses. These hoses connect the engine to the heater core. There are however, some vehicles which don’t use a Jeep heater valve. In this case, the coolant will flow freely from the engine to the heater core via the heater hoses.
The Jeep heater valve can be a manual valve, a vacuum valve or electrical.
The Jeep heater valve can have problems with not opening and closing as it should. This could be caused by it sticking. In this case, some WD40 or other lubricant may help. If it doesn’t however it may need to be replaced. If your heating system isn’t working and is bled properly, it may be an issue with the Jeep heater valve. Alternatively, if the vehicle’s heating is always on it may be an issue with the Jeep heater valve being seized open.
- Nobody knows where the name 'Jeep' comes from or why it was used. One theory is that it's a play on the phrase General Purpose Vehicle (GP), while others maintain that Jeeps are named after a character in the Popeye cartoon, Eugene the Jeep.
- The Jeep is the only vehicle to have won an American Purple Heart medal. The award was given after a Jeep was the first US presence on the beach at Guadalcanal. The Jeep was only slightly damaged, with some bullet holes in the windscreen, but General Eisenhower called the Jeep one of "the three tools that won the war."
- There were a lot of car firsts in the 1963 Jeep Wagoneer. Dubbed by Jeep as the first-ever luxury SUV, the Wagoneer came with independent front suspension (a first for a 4x4), as well as the first overhead-cam six-cylinder truck engine.
- There's a whole sport called Jeeping, and it's been running since 1953. It's a trek that usually takes place along the Rubicon Trail in the US, and 'Jeep Jamborees' are now so popular that Jeep even attends the events, often bringing new concept vehicles to show off.
- Former US President Ronald Reagan was a big fan of the Jeep and was often seen driving around his ranch in his much-loved CJ8.
