Yep, mine rides at just a hair below the 210 graduation. Anyways, when my Jeep is coming up temp and hits the line under 210 (like in the picture) my heat is like an oven as well.

Although 210° is a typical operating temperature for a 4.0L, it should be running at 195° under ideal circumstances, assuming you have the correct thermostat installed.

I was confused by the picture because that's actually a good thing

Yeah you're right. I do recall my heat working even at that.

Yeah, it usually rides at about the 210* mark, that's how I figure the thermostat is stuck open. Good thing it's an easy fix.

Well last night, and today, I checked my hoses after my ~30 minute commute from and to work. My upper radiator hose has like basically no coolant in it what so ever, and was somewhat "sucked in," as if there's vacuum being applied to it. There is a little coolant in the overflow reservoir. I did add about a solo cups worth of coolant to the system.

Both of my heater core hoses last night were cold, which leads me to believe that it's clogged, but shouldn't just one be cold? I guess if it's blocked, the coolant already in those lines can't move out of the way.

I saw a couple people used compressed air and soaking CLR to clear their heater cores. I am going to try that tomorrow and see what happens. I'll probably do the thermostat too if I have time. Any suggestions?

Edit: I am also going to have the system flushed by a garage in the very near future, my coolant is absolutely atrocious. I don't have the patience for the fill and drain method, and I think overall, the "professional" flush is a lot more effective.
