Question about 1991 Jeep Cherokee Limited

1991 Jeep Cherokee has no power

My 1991 Jeep Cherokee will not start. It is a six cylinder 2 wheel drive. Some say its the fuel pump or the fuel pump relay. It will start up sometimes but immediately dies. How do I find out which one it is? Any solutions on how to see what is exactly wrong.

    I have a 1991 Jeep Cherokee that sometimes will sputter and die while idling and running, it will restart and work fine for a while until it happens again. The fuel pump was checked and the pressure is good. The battery connections were replaced and the battery seems fine. If it could be the fuel pump relay, where is the relay located?

    Same as above but I can drive it to work fine and then park. Come back out ten minutes later and it won't start or if it does it coughs and dies, restarts and runs rough. I have replaced the fuel pump relay and the filter. I have a pump that I am going to try next and I hope it works

Set fire to the car and see if that helps. If that doesnt help put the fire out and immediately take a # 2 on the driver seat.

Try looking at the left ft fender and see if there is a resistor there the connections get dirty and will cause the problem you are talking about

If it will run with you manually putting fuel to it . then check the pump relay. if the relay is ok check the fuel filter. if thats ok then its either the pump or a bad connection at the pump.

I have a 1998 Jeep cherokee sport. Was driving today and it died. Now there is no spark and no power to fuel pump. Changed fuel pump today and it won't run. Recently replaced oxygen sensors too


U need to check the crankshaft position sensor. The fuel pump will only have power for 2 seconds I till it sees a crank signal. It' controls the asd relay which turns on your spark and fuel

I need to locate the fuel filter for my 1988 Jeep Cherokee, 4.0 liter, V6 cylinder W/ 4 wheel drive. Please help. I need to make it to class. Thank you, Mr. Jeff Rice


They stopped using in line, external fuel filters in 1997. Your filter is an integral part of the fuel pump assembly, which is inside the fuel tank. Are you sure you need a filter?

Check to see if the fuel pump is running after it shuts down...could be a relay or the pump itself (overheating internally) Checked the fuel filter yet? Some crank sensors need to be shimmed. If it's too close to the flywheel even though you recently changed it, if it's too close to the wheel it can fail again. May not be the case but worth checking over. Also check the ceramic resistor on the left fender near the master cylinder if you have one. That too can cause problems.

You probably have a dead cylinder. like if you have a six cylinder it might be running on only five. could be because of a bad spark plug, ignition coil, fuel injector, plug wire. you should get it checked out.

Engine dies during drive and wont start up


Check the in line fuel filters. Dirt and debris can clog the filter under vacuum pressure from fuel pump and starve the engine. After the car sits and the vacuum is released, the debris falls away from the filter allowing the fuel to pass thru the filter until it clogs up once again. There are also in tank filters but more than likely the culprit is the inline. They are pretty inexpensive and easy to fix.

1996 Jeep Cherokee Sport bogs down


I just posted a simular resonse in another post. What is sounds like it that the fuel pump is starting to go bad. When it heats up after use the pressure drops not pusing the full amount of fuel. Whenits cold it works fine until it heats back up 10-20 mins. remember fuel in the tank helps cool the pump so keep it soewhat full but sounds like the damage is done. your probally gonna have to replace it.

I have a 1991 jeep cherokee that recently started having random problems when accelerating, it's idle starts fluxuating and it spits and sputters and bucks, before it finally wants to go. Also it randomly...


First, check ignition system...cap, rotor, wires & coil. You may have some arcing going on there. If plugs are not recent, take a look at them as well...even if they are good, they can often tell you which cylinders are having a problem (wet with fuel, heavy deposits or just "different" from the rest) You may not hear the fuel pump come on all the time if the pressure in the line is not bleeding down. I would take a look at the relay first (power in & out). If fuel filter is more than 1yr old change that. (routine maintenance regardless of problems) Pressure test system if in doubt. Make sure idle air system is clean and do a quick test on crank sensor (a known problem area). likely something here will get you going.
