Is there black smoke coming from the exhaust?
If yes then check the map sensor.

Replace the catalyst convertor. When a convertor goes bad, the guts of it break apart and end up clogging the exit port. One of its functions is to remove toxins from the air. Helps the emission system to run rich or lean gas exhaust.

While idleing the jeep doesn't want to stay running. And at intersectons or pushing on brake and clutch it stalls. Seems like the carbuator is getting too much air. Runs fine when valve is held down...


gas smell indicates rich operation. perhaps your fuel pressure regulator diaphram has torn.

Please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r7427423-fix_poor_idle_high_idle_stalling_fuel . These are generic instructions. If you get stuck or need specific instructions for your car, please get back to me with model, year and engine info.

Runs great but will quit running , smell gas also


Sound like a rich by a long way; are you check if have smoke in exhaust? Black smoke is fuel, blue smoke is oil.

Also, your injectors are to big and is running rich.

sounds like it running to rich of a fuel mixture, the first thing i would do is replace the oxygen sensor and also make sure its not misfiring an any cylinder, start there, hope this helps.

My 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo is starting to have a ''slight'' hesitation after I shut it off and re-start it again. WHen I accelerate at first it hesitates a bit. I let off the gas for a few seconds...


A slight hesitation after engine shut off due to engine running rich meaning not meeting golden air:gas ratio of 14.6:1 so fuel residue in chamber continue to burn for the last moment. The same rich fuel problem that was why you had to let gas off during acceleration. Need to Check out the O2 sensor Check out MAP sensor Good luck

98 jeep grand cherokee black smoke


Either your too rich and gas is getting by the piston rings going into the crankcase(oil pan)or you have a defective fuel pump (even if it is new!!)IT'S one or the other!!Running the car very rich for a period of time will have fuel in the oil!! I run mind rich for the nos and smell gas in the oil when draining it and only have a few passes on the motor with the nitrous,but runs extremely rich at idle because the timing is backed way down and running a colder plug causes a rich condition!! Plugs will foul quickly also!!
