1996 jeed grand sputers

I have 1996 jeep grand cheokee. It starts fine no issues on that part. It stated acting like it was missing but now I don't know what is wrong. When I perss on the gas it has isssues going like the whole truck just shakes. It does kick in after awhile but as soon as I press on the gas it does the samething. It down shifts fine once it kicks in. I just got done changeing the plugs and it didn't help. Any idea's.

This sounds like the infamous throtle position sensor. its the two wire conector on your throttle body that has two torx bolts holding it in. its a very easy and quick process. the part is about $50 and i wouldn't pay mor than $60 to have it done

Jeep engine troubleshooting

run fault codes and you will find that missing is also from faulty injectors, mechanical faults, low fuel pressure and not always spark plugs and leads

96 jeep cheokee problems no spark

I would make sure you have voltage to the coil. Could be a fuse or relay problem. Is the check engine light on when you turn the key on ?

My 98 jeep grand cheokee runs rough all of a sudden and misses at all rpm ranges p0304 comes up i just replaced the wires and rotor and cap and coil about a month ago plugs are older but e3

I don't know about a 1998, but i do know that E3 plugs
will not work at all in newer vehicles.

I have to ask. Why would you even try them?
I never believe any advertising or find it necessary
to use anything other than what a car maker recommends.
If you do your asking for trouble.

I would check for vacuum leaks & forget that one cylinder
misfire. If you had COP Coils then you replace that one
but you don't

Loose the plugs

I disconected my battery to my 1995 Jeep Grand Cheokee to put in a new battery and now when I start it it will start then die. What's happening?

If you have a security system try locking and unlocking the drivers side door using the key. Most times that will re-set it.
