Question about 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee
I have a GCL with about 62k on it. Recently I had a problem driving back from my in-laws. While cruising on the highway, I had the cruise control set at 60mph. I notice that the RPMs fluctuated from about 2k to 2200. The truck could/would not hold a steady RPM, but the speed was pretty close. I guess it was dropping in/out of OD to keep the speed. Also, I have noticed that the idle will fluctuate from 650 to 1000 RPMs after engine is warm.
Since you have a Laredo this should be where it is going in and out of overdrive. The reason is because 60mph is right at the end of the power range before going into overdrive. The other reason on your idle fluctuation is due to the cooling fan kicking on and off. Higher RPM's occur as the engine is trying to cool back down after reaching optimal temp. I due have a partial solution if you want better performance out of your jeep and will help MPG. You can replace the spark plugs and air filter for both mpg and performance. Local auto store should be able to recommend platnium or iridium plugs for your jeep. But K and N is the best air filter to replace it with. It will cost around 50 dollars but it has a lifetime warranty and is cleanable. If you decide on new plugs make sure to spend a few extra bucks and get some with a 3 to 5 year warranty. Just replace them before the warranty is up. Stephen
