Question about 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee

2 Answers

Power loss after running

I have a 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee 6 cyl 4 liter with 143,000 miles onit. Rrecently I have been experiencing power loss when drivingafter differing distances. Pumping the gas pedal rapidly producespower enough to keep it going and even accelerating. Also theengine never dies just idles down. A friend checked the computerfor codes and their were none. He thought fuel filter, I heardperhaps torque converter. Your thoughts?

    They say it could be bad gas but this has happened several times ove the last 5,000 miles with gas bought in so many different locations they all cant be bad.

Loss of power can happen even if exhaust does not flow in other words you have a rstriction in the exhaust usualy the catalytic converter has collapsed any exhaust shop will be able to tell you right away, or when you loose power do you hear a hissing noise ? if so that is clearly a clogged converter replace the catalytic converter

1997 grand cherokee keeps acting like losing power, backfires and randomly shuts off and now it wont start again...any suggestions??


timing belt may have slipped. usually if the engine starts to back fire and then lose power the timing belt is loose. would check this and replace if it looks suspect. also timing belts should be changed at a certain time or miles witch ever is the grater. average is 4-6 years on a engine that don't do meany miles 2-4 years on a heavy run engine.

99 jeep grand cherokee has power to one coil pack but no spark


The 6 cyl engine uses a coil strip for all 6 cylinders, and the 8 cyl uses one coil per cylinder. So I assume you have an 8 cyl engine.
You are saying one coil has power but is not firing ?
Have you switched it with another cylinder to eliminate the coil as a possible problem ?

1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 8Cyl4.7L When when driving over 50 miles per hour will lose all power whats wrong?


When you say it loses power, do you mean electrical power or engine power ?
You would need to look at the fuse boxes for a loss of electrical power, and use a scanner or code reader to check the computer for trouble codes for a loss of engine power.

1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee. AC problem. Fan and inside controls have power but compressor clutch not engaging. I am thinking that there may be a relay that is out. Any suggestions for troubleshooting...


The compressor clutch won't engage unless there is freon in the system. Connecting a gauge to the low pressure port should tell you if there is. Pressure in a system that isn't running varies with the outside temperature.
