Question about 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee
The engine is a 4.0L. I have already replaced the coolant temp sensor at the front of the engine on the thermostat housing and also used a DVOM and checked the resitance level (ohms) on new sensor and also checked the connector for the required 5volt reference voltage and also for a good ground and everything checks out fine. I would like to find a online wiring diagram from the PCM to the gauge or instrument cluster itself so i can check the connections, ground etc. I am afraid that the O2 sytem is never going into closed loop and it is affecting my gas mileage.
If you changed the coolant temperature sensor and it had a 5 volt ref signal to it then you replaced the wrong part. You need to replace the coolant temperature sending unit. The coolant temp "sensor" is an input to the ECM for your fuel injection system. The coolant temp "sending unit" is for coolant temp reading at the gauge, It is an NTC switch (negative temperature coefficient) which means as temp increases/resistance decreases.
