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

SOURCE: 98 jeep cherokee classic, gauges dont work, which fuse could it b

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.

SOURCE: 98 jeep grand cherokee diagnostic codes

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)

SOURCE: how to fix a broken hood latch on a 98 jeep

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.

Key wont turn in my 98 cherokee classic.

Make sure the shifter is in park. maybe, push up on it while you turn the key. If that don't work, your ignition is broke. There is no way around it. You willhave to change your ignition switch and lock cylinder. Sorry.

2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Keeps stalling, engine

P0505 means the whole Idle Control system, not only the IAM. Check all related sensors (i.e. crankshaft sensor). Check with a voltmeter direct at the connector of the IAM if you get any signal. Remove the IAM from the TB, connect him, let someone switch your ignition key to ON. The IAM need to drive in/out for a short time to find the right position. Hold the IAM near a hard part, that they cant drive out completely! If IAM works fine, check the fuel pressure, check and clean your TB ( if not done yet). If that doesn't work, come back again please

1996 Jeep GC stalling with no warning when driving

my 96 grand cherokee had the same problem with stalling minus the clock reseting part. what fixed mine was an idle air control motor it sits at the back of the throttle body on top of the motor. the part cost about 60 bucks and it hasn't stalled out on me since. i hope this helps you out.

Truck stalls but stops after driving for 20 min

OK...clean out the throttle body with carb cleaner and remove idle air valve from next to the tps...don't turn the plunger when cleaning and don't loose "o" ring seal. That may help.
