Question about 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee

04 jeep grand cherokee keeps bucking and dying

My transmission light came on about a week ago so i've had it in three different shops and no one can figure out the problem... The first time it did it i was goin about 60 m/h and it bucked on me so i thought it was maybe the transmision... i've kinda noticed that if i'm below a quarter of a tank it bucks then dies, but if it has more gas then that it'll just die without the bucking, could this be the fuel pump or have somethin to do with the gas flow?

    yes it does start right back up

  • phatkid2006 Nov 30, 2008

    well after about the first 3 times it happened, i've noticed that it happens the very first time i put it in drive, but anytime after that i can put it in drive without any problems, and the second time it happened i put it in reverse to back up a drive way and when i got about half way up the drive way it died on me again but all i have to do is just throw it in neutral and start it right back up and it doesn't have any problems. and no i didn't get any of the codes, but i think they said there were three of them showing...

  • phatkid2006 Nov 30, 2008

    ok i can get the codes, yeah i have a tach but i haven't had a problem with it not starting. the only problems i've had is just the bucking or just straight up dying, and all i have to do is just put in neutral or park and it starts right back up with no problem

  • phatkid2006 Nov 30, 2008

    ok, well i get those as soon as i can.... thanks

  • phatkid2006 Dec 01, 2008

    well i seen a video on here that tells you how to read the codes and i tried it and this is what i got P0112

    Ok lets start with the codes they really would shed some light on this.

  • good wrench May 11, 2010

    The best thing to do is to get the codes to see were you stand.There could be many things to cause the light to come on.I,ve seen bad crank sensors doing the same thing and jeeps are known for this.Do you have a tach and does it not work if you crank and it doesnt start right away.

  • good wrench May 11, 2010

    How often does this happen can you get it to happen at any time.When you brought to the shops did they give you any codes.The change in the problem with different fuel levels makes me wonder if it is a vapor lock problem.You can try to drive it with the fuel cap loose and see if you get it to happen.But your check engine light might come if your computer does an evap test and sees a leak because the cap is loose.But this will rule out that problem.

    When it dies does it start right back up.

I had a similiar problem it turned out be the catalytic converter. I believe there was a recall for this problem.

SOURCE: bucking then dying

Check fuel pressure at fuel rail. If you have not changed the fuel filter in a long time do it (likely needs service anyhow) Before changing pump, check the in-tank pump filter. Trans light and bucking may be unrelated. Either trans is reacting to an engine problem or converter lock up has a problem. Jumping to conclusions may be unproductive. concentrate on shutting down, then go from there.
I can't believe the number of dealers (who are supposed to have all the info) and still can't fix a damn thing! And we wonder why the big 3 are in financial trouble?????

Look for noise in the TPS circuit that can cause TCC to lock and unlock.

I think your best bet would be to take it in and have it serviced . They will change fluid , filter and adjust the bands . That might be all it needs.

Jeep Grand Cherokee shuts off at idle while stopped. RPM fluctuates then engine eventually dies.


your idle air control valve is going out located behind the throttle body.

93' Grand Cherokee does not auto-shift to high gear until I hit 50-mph.


This is most likely the throttle position sensor. It sounds odd I know, but the throttle position sensor helps tell the transmission when to shift. This same thing happened to my Jeep. The sensor is located on the intake manifold on the engine and costs around 45 bucks.

To the guy who spent 2300 dollars getting a transmission rebuilt: They saw you coming and you got totally screwed over. I can get a cherokee transmission rebuilt any day of the week in the range of 800 to 1000 dollars. WOW check out your shops and mechanics a little better before you jump into a rip off.

1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee stalls when brakes are applied


My 2000 Grand Cherokee had the same problem, without all the sputtering, it would just die approaching a stop. We could only keep it running by slightly pushing down on the gas petal when coming to a stop. I replaced the Throttle Position Sensor, but that didn't change anything. A new mechanic I found replaced the Idle Air Control Valve, and we've had no problems in a week.
