Question about 1988 Jeep Cherokee

1988 Jeep Cherokee

My son's cherokee seems to die often when coming to a stop sign, then tonight after he started driving, he almost couldn't get it to stop at the stop sign. Is it an idling problem? Also, it clunks intermittently usually after it has run for a while.

Please check the EGR valve, located on driver's side of engine below intake manifold. Inside of the EGR valve is a diaphram pushed out by a spring. The spring rusts away, leaving the diaphram in the wrong position for idling. I have stretched out the spring, or just replaced the valve and had good luck thereafter. Valve is round about the size of a pop can (diameter) and shaped like a UFO.

`996 grand cherokee has trouble starting, it doesn't want to start but after several attempts it will start but as i am driving if i drive too slow or come to a stop sign it will stall out my mechanic...


Change mechanics or work on it yourself

PO351--Possible Ignition Coil problem, cylinder #1

The stalling, is a most likely separate from the coil issue

1988 Jeep Cherokee 5 liter motor straight 6. Runs one day, and then the next day, no power to the spark plugs. It seems to have a mind of its own. Even while driving, it seems to lose power to the spark...


At the age of you Jeep I would be looking at a worn ignition switch (The part that turns when you turn the key).They wear out causing a very intermitant connection some times it works and some times it doesn't ,Going over a small bump in the road is often enough to break the connection causing the engine to stop.
Start the engine and try gently wiggling the key and see if it dies.....
Hope this helps.

1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee intermittent voltage drop, lose electric


I wont list this as a solution, but it seems that working in the area of the alt may have moved around some wiring...the alt may be OK but perhaps an adjacent wire (maybe a ground) is not well connected. Also check crimped on wire loops on alt connectors..they like to corrode at the crimp where it crushes on the actual wire.
