What controls the fuel mixture when engine is idling?


It could be a number of things, if it's injected then it could be fuel rail pressure sensor, or it could be air flow sensor or it could be O2 sensor, have a mechanic diagnose it

98 jeep cherokee sport flashing engine light


The check engine light is because all check engine light codes are caused by components that affect emissions. It's not actually an engine problem, it's a problem with either your O2 sensor, MAF sensor, fuel/air ratio, pyrometer, or exhaust.

Jeep stalls gauges don't work windows and locks and radio don't work


when you state it wouldn't crank, do you mean the starter won't engage or that it just spins over and doesn't start? if no gauges or no starter engagement, then check the battery, battery connections,and the starter for excessive amperage draw. if the starter spins and the engine won't start, then check crankshaft position sensor first. the crank sensor is a more common failure than the distributor or any of the other things you mentioned.

When i start the engine on my 04 jeep 4.7 liter engine it sputters but clears up and idles good and it runs good no loss of power and no check engine light. it happens when it sits for a priod of time i...


The first thing i would check is the fuel system hook a fuel pressure gauge up to the fuel rail and check the fuel pressure, after you have verified the fuel pressure is good let the gauge sit and monitor how much "bleed down" occurs if the bleed down is out of spec i would bet the fuel pressure regulator is bad or theres a leaking fuel injector causing fuel to drip into 1 or more of the cylinders causing a rich condition at startup.

1996 Jeep Cherokee, straight 6cyl, new fuel pump and now it is struggling running and pushing to much fuel. How do check fuel regulator, or where is it located? Thanks


the reg is most likely on the fuel rail. perform a pressure test with a fuel pressure gauge. attatch the gauge to the test point on the rail(looks like a vavle stem on the wheel), start engine and measure pressure. you must get the specs for pressure for your vehicle.typicly between 30 and 50 shut the vehicle off and leave the gauge attached. the pressure should hold. is the check engine light on?

99 Jeep Cherokee Sport, 4.0L -won't start


you need to have it connected to an OBD2 machine and watch if you are missing the cam sensor showing RPMs
or if your missing crank sensors RPMs,
it could be a wiring problem or computer if your seeing the RPMs from both sensors,and the last thing i would check is hooking up a fuel gauge to the reed valve and watch what fuel pressure you have while cranking,if the cam sensor is the culprit it will turn the fuel off after the cranking.

2000 cherokee sport 4.0 hard cold starts and rough idle


Did you try changing the air breather for the motor?You need three things inorder for the engine to run well. Air,fuel,and spark.since you had a tune up and fuel flushed.I can only think of two things.First I never heard of flushing a fuel filter,you change it ( not flush it ) change your fuel filter,eliminate the guess work.And change your breather.

98 jeep grand cherokee limited 4.0 litre. starts up, during warm up process engine will idle irradically and stall out. starts back up and does the same thing. no check engine light on. cleanrd throttle...


Does this thing have a throttle body that looks like a computer-controlled carburetor?

If so, start motor and verify that it behaves irratically and then stalls.

then, spray WD-40 liberally around base of throttle body where tb meets intake manifold.

Start motor...

Does the problem go away, at least whilst for a little while?

Yes?

You gotta vacuum leak. Replace gasket under TB and tighten bolts to factory spec.

4.0 litre engine, auto transmission, long cranking time before it starts. When it starts there is a smell of gsoline, rich.


CHECK INJECTOR LEAK DOWN. INSTALL FUEL PRESSURE GAUGE, PRESSURIZE FUEL SYSTEM BY LETTING ENGINE RUN FOR A MINUTE, SHUT ENGINE DOWN, AND OBSERVE FUEL PRESSURE. IT SHOULD NOT DROP BY MORE THAN 15-20 PSI IN A HALF HOUR. IF IT DOES PRESSURIZE FUEL RAIL AGAIN AND REMOVE FUEL RAIL WITH INJECTORS STILL ATTACHED AND LOOK FOR FUEL DRIPPING OUT OF INJECTORS. IF FUEL IS DRIPPING REPLACE INJECTORS AND SEALS.
