Question about 1998 Jeep Cherokee
My first step would be to have the computer scanned for codes, the codes if any will help as there are many things that could cause this condition. for example this trucks have crank sensor problems or the fuel pump may be acting up.go to an auto parts store and they will scan it free of charge. let me know the codes if any, good day

The jeep wrangler had a problem with the connections for the instrument pannel. If you remove it check for little black spots on the connector. If there are clean them with a pick or flat blade screw driver. If that does not work or there are no signs of burning you need a new cluster.

Sounds just like mine and after a lot of headscratching it looks like mine has the common fault of a crack in the manifold which is allowing oxygen rich air in and giving false readings leading to the ecu overcompensating hence the lumpiness unless you have your foot down when theres plenty of output from the engine and correct readings. AND/OR a faulty sensor in the manifold. I know i have a crack in mine just above the donut joint i can hear and see it so have ordered a twinflex replacement stainless item will then get it back on computer and next step is replace sensor (twinflex around £100 for item on ebay)

First, take a good look at it and find out what isn't working. Often they just get rusted and sluggish. Use wd40 or other solvent and work the mechanism to free it up. If that does not work, you usually can get the assembly very cheaply at an auto salvage yard.
Also make sure the rubber bumper stops are properly adjusted they tend to wear and flatten and will allow the hood to flutter if that happens. The bumper screws up and down to adjust.

I have a 1996 Grand Cherokee - the same problem, except my interior lights flash on and off at the same time. Did you get your problem solved?
