Hi Jkeefer,
The air flow sensor is situated just behind the air cleaner housing (where the air cleaner element is fitted) and has an electrical connection plugged into it....I would believe that it is either that, or if your vehicle is fitted with a mapping or an absolute manifold vacuum sensor, (the same piece of equipment with two different names)....That one you'll find joined to the surge tank, (which is the larger part of the induction system) at the entry to the intake manifold.....It would help for you to have a scan carried out on your vehicle.......That would alleviate the problem of guessing where the fault is....You'd then be able to go directly to the fault....

Hope this is useful to you....

Best regards Johngee10

2001 jeep grand cherokee laredo overheating


There is a good chance the head gasket is leaking.
If the air flow thru the radiator is good, and the coolant flow is good, there could be something like an exhaust restriction that is causing extra heat, or the head gasket may be leaking.
Will it get hot just sitting still, or do you have to be driving it ?

Hi again I have the same problem with my 97 grand cherokee larado. It just keeps dying while driving and then spmetimes it back fires before dying I have replaced exhaust o2 semsor crank regulator sensor...


I had a similar problem with a 1992 BMW 3 Series, it would idle funny, backfire, and then die. The problem turned out to be with the mass air flow sensor, it just need to be cleaned (I used break clean). Eventually I replaced the sensor, but cleaning one or twice a month seemed to do the trick.

I own a 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee and I am having idle problems. The tach goes up and down and then dies when I come to a stop every other stop. I put it on a computer and it read the following P0108-...


Do you have the air filter in place? The removal of the air filter will cause this same issue. If it is not the filter, then the mass air flow sensor could be going out.

Where is the Intake Air Temperature Sensor or the (IAT)Sensor on a 2004 JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE LAREDO 4.0 .??? I Have A Boss Performance chip that i would like to install....Thank's..


The air temperature is taken between the air filter and the throttle body. Look in the roof of your air cleaner box. (usually 2-pin plug) After the air cleaner, the tube that sends the air to the throttle body has the mass air flow sensor in it.(usually 4-pin plug)

Where is the map sensor located? 1994 jeep grand cherokee


Go half way between the air cleaner box and the "carburetor". Up the 4" black air pipe, a wire harness plug plugs into the MAP sensor there. Also called MAS air flow sensor.

My 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee cuts off while driving


Sounds a whole lot like a dirty or malfuncitionig idle air control valve. A coil would generally show up as a miss under load or high rpm, crank sensors generally work or they dont, only sometimes giving you a miss, but that would be all the time at any rpm. Computer, I doubt for too many reasons to list. Could also be related to a bad throttle position sensor or a very slight vacuum leak.

Where is the mass air flow sensor on a 98 jeep grand cherokee


98 jeep grand cherokee MAF
It located in the throttle-body. Look for electrical wires connected to it. It has an electrical resistor in the air flow stream that is kept cool based on the air flowing over it. The more air flow, the more electricity needed to maintain the resistors temperature. That's how it measures air flow.

I want to speed up my 2007 grand cherokee overland


Best bet is to start with an aftemarket performance air intake. (ex-K &N, AEM). Exhaust (flowmaster) is the next step. with those two you should an additional 15 ish horses. next step would a chip module. (ex-hypertech). Additional horses for you.

Intake will give you instant results. Throttle response, air flow, and a better sound
Exhaust. Will sound great. May not notice the performance portion, but needed.
Chip Module. Your biggest expense without getting in big, but will take your jeep to the next level. lets your jeep open up and remove rev limits and such. Fun to play with and works. Don't fall trap to knock offs. You find a whole lot junk like on ebay. Stick to the heavy hitters with this. (Jet/Hypertech to name a couple.)
Check out www.jegs.com to look at some performance parts. There a decent site with a lot to look at. Have fun.
