Question about 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee

2 Answers

Acceleration Problem My '95 Grand Cherokee Laredo (S6 4.0) runs well most of the time, but after being driven a long time and/or on a hot day, it will start to "chug" during acceleration. It once came close to stalling out, but we shut down the engine and let cool and it did okay. It was also hogging gas when it did this, so I know it's not the transmission. One last thing, the jeep gets an average (according to digital read-out) 16-17 mpg, is this normal?

And then the following items were listed as the most probable cause here with others like me. If you can talk to a good mechanic look at these scratch one or two off

1. Ignition module/

3. Idle air control motor /O2 sensor?/ throtle position sensor

4. Crank position sensor/ the connector that connects the electrical control unit to the distributor of your vehicle replaced.

5. Fuel pump fuse/relay

Crummy mileage = normal; our '97 which hardly ever is used for trips gets 11-12 MPG around town - don't whine. The best we ever achieved was ~ 18 on the only long trip it ever made. But then we drive stupid too, and are long-time radar detector users.

You didn't mention how many miles you have on yours but one thing might be; you may be due for a timing chain which can cause that surging effect.

How do i know if my 95 jeep grand cherokee laredo 4.0 inline 6 is an interference engine

You have a timing chain that is good for the life of the engine. The only thing that could need replacing is the chain tensioner if it starts to make noise.

1996 Jeep Cherokke 5.2 grand laredo, missing on acceleration found loose distributer need to set timing.

Base (initial) ignition timing is NOT adjustable. Do not attempt to adjust ignition timing by rotating the distributor. All ignition timing functions are controlled by the Powertrain Control Module.Adjusting the timing on a Jeep Grand Cherokee requires special tools and an understanding of engine mechanics. Changing the timing on a Jeep Grand Cherokee with distributor-less ignition requires professional reprogramming of the powertrain control module. This guide covers Jeep Grand Cherokee models with distributed ignition only. you can go to this site and it will explain it. have a good day !!

1995 Jeep grand cherokee is missing while running. When it is under a heavy load (driving fast) it runs fine. When idleing and slow driving it spits and sputters.

I have the same problem on my 95 grand cherokee laredo. Sometimes it starts out fine and after about 10 miles it starts spitting and sputtering. Then after a while it seems to clean out and run fine again for a little while. Then other times it starts out spitting and sputtering at the begining. I changed the fuel filter and that was not it. It is a 4.0L 6cyc. Any Ideas?
