    I have a 1996 jeep laredo it was working fine until yesterday it sounds as it there is a hole in a line that air is shooting out which has cause the vehicle to lose pressure. I cant go over 5-7 miles because of the problem even with the gas pedal all the way to the floor.

Mikey108 has it. I believe. The inside of your catalytic converter may have collapsed, blocking the exhaust from exiting. This would cause a problem like u describe. The 'air pressure' noise u hear is the exhaust trying to exit a pipe opening that is much too small since it's plugged up now, and it would greatly reduce power of the engine (like u running while trying to exhale thru a straw). Let us know how u make out.

Take the car to an exhaust shop and have them check the cat convertor. It could be clogged.

I have a 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee that leftgete is not opening what can be the problem .."? The motor is working but is not lefting up.


Attempt to open manually. With the gate open use the remote to close. If the support pistons lose their gas pressure the gate will close automatically but not have the force to open Replace the gas piston on the passenger side.

If something is blocking the sensor will also prohibit the lift gate from opening.

Hope this helps?.

What to check when oil pressure gauge flucuates while driving a jeep cherokee


To verify there is a problem, remove the oil pressure sending unit, replace it with a test gauge, start the car, idle, accelerate etc and watch the gauge for any abnormal variations it should react to evry change in acceleration and not be below the minimum or above the max as per the service specs.

1996 Jeep Grand Cheerokee. Will only start will accelerator pushed and will only keep running if it is pushed. If I let off, it stalls completely.


Could be the idle air control valve or a dirty throttle body.
The computer controls idle speed by how much air enters the throttle body and intake.
You would need to check the throttle body and test the control valve.

Hesitates and cuts out when I accelerates, shakes and sputters!


Fuel filters are cheap and simple to change, so try that first. If that is not your problem it may be your catalytic converter. Before having that replaced, check your fuel return line. You should be able to blow thru the line with your mouth. If you can't, or it's really hard to do. . . then you have blockage. The blockage could be flooding your engine with fuel. Checking the fuel pressure with a gauge from an auto parts store may help you out. If the pressure is really high, then that may be your problem.
