I had the same problem... it sounds to me like your problem is the fuel pump.

My 1996 jeep grand cherokee wouldnt start,acted like a dead battery. (had battery and alternator tested both good) when I jumped it it started right up but as soon as I took my foot off the gas it died..no...


Have throttle body cleaned and "minimum air rate" adjusted. Computer looses learned memory when battery is disconnected and has to start over again.

Why would my jeep chug then die like it was running out of gas


I had that problem, it was the thermostat keeping the choke on when the engine was warm so when i hit the gas it would act like it was running out of gas.

Misses and sputters at certain throttle position


This sounds like the same problem I had with my 87 Jeep 2 door Cherokee Sport.
Thought I had to replace the Fuel pump yet when I went under and pulled it out of the side of the tank I found that one of it's vacuum or return line had fallen/poped off. After I pushed the rubber tube line back on it's metal tube and pushed and remounted the pump back in the tank. Started up and it never ran better at any speed. Yea!!!!!

When the jeep has been dirven for about an hour it starts having power problems when u try to speed up it bogs down really bad and wont allow u to speed up starts to back fire a couple times when u stop it...


Sounds like a mass air flow or map sensor fault. Could try running the car with either disconnected, if there is a vast improvement then it is likely to be that part.

Won't idle


The problem could very well be your Idle Air Control Valve. If you're a handy person it costs about $40.00 and takes 10 minutes to replace. Best way to check it is to unplug it while it is running. If the valve is bad it will keep running. If it is good, unplugging it will shut the engine off, and that means it's doing its job. Happened w/ my dakota and I'm about to replace it in my Grand Cherokee.
