Something mechanical, ignition, or fuel.

Check the fuel pressure. If you have 30K miles on your jeep and the spark plugs in this motor need to be replaced. Jeep Grand Cherokees are notorious for not doing well with fuel with lower octane. Fill your Jeep with at least medium grade gasoline, especially if it has been shuddering or hesitating while you're attempting to accelerate.

Miss Firing


You might have a small leak in your vacuum system, check all of the hoses and plugged vacuum connections. Check your plugs and wires, distributor cap and rotor. Sometimes a crack in the distributor cap will cause carbon to build up. Since carbon is an electrical conductor it might be jumping from one cylinder to another that is not in line with the firing order.
