1988 cherokee chugging.....

I have an 1988 cherokee that is chugging at any speed. We changed the fuel filter and spark plugs and it is still doing this. It has also started back firing when I start to excelerate. The fuel filter also had rust in it. Any ideas of what might cause this?

Rust in ther filter means rust in the tank. There is a primary filter attached to the fuel pump inside the tank. Before you go further, replace that filter & wipe out the inside of the tank as well as you can.
Then check operation of pump and how it runs.
Good Luck

My car is chugging it feels like the fuel isn't getting through. I have changed the spark plugs and about to change the fuel filter.


dont just change parts without knowing--scan car at a parts place 1st-------it cud be a failin fuel pump or pressure regulator----or an egr valve--dirty injection system-----worn plug wires------fuel system pressure test or ignition inspection may be in order

I have a 1988 e150 with the 5 liter fuel injected engine. Lately, It has developed a 'periodic' issue of 'chugging'? (not sure how to describe it) It acts like it is either not getting fuel in one or...


You may need to change the fuel filter, a dirty filter could cause this, and check your spark plug wires, if their old and cracked they may be arcing off each other.

The car is chugging and also blowing out dark smoke


I do not know much about this vehicle but if it is diesel it sounds like you should clean and or replace air filter and or glow plugs or grid heater... if it is a gas vehicle changing the fuel filter and checking spark plug gaps and plugs and wires also the cap and rotor may have where witch will cause intermittent and weak spark so you could be getting to much fuel and running rich. also if it has a catalytic converter you may want to check if it is partially clogged and if it is have it replaced hope this helps good luck

I have a jeep that cuts out randomly whilst driving. I have replaced the crank angle sensor about 3 months ago. It will run fine for 1-3 weeks and then just chug like its running out of fuel. It doesnt...


try replacing the fuel filter. also do you notice a louder than usual fuel pump whine? maybe fuel pump is going out, now, only if you hear the fuel pump working harder than usual should you be concerned about pump issues. also, check spark plugs, coils, ect. if it's due for a tune up, get it done.

Drving at road speed


Step 1

Check fuel pressure. If you have over 80,000 then just replace fuel pump and filter. Fuel pump is in the tank so run out as much gas as you can.

Step 2
Also do a tune up plugs , wires ect... if you haven't already.
