    Thanks a million, my son-in-law is in Iraq and it is his car. I want to fix it for him before he returns to the U.S.



    If I take the gas cap off will that help the fuel coming out if I remove the filter?

Hi larry, the fuel filter is located under the jeep, in front of the gas tank, in the gas line. To change, u must depressurize the fuel system. curt

    Yes, remove the gas cap, but u also must relieve the pressure @ the fuel rail. I believe there is a shrader valve (it looks exactly like a tire valve where u add air) . Place a rag under the valve, use something like a pen to press in the center of the valve to relieve the pressure, some gas will flow out, the rag will absorb it. One other caution--while changing my filter, it came off rather awkwardly, and I managed to get a spray of gas residue in my eyes. Ended up in the emergency room, everything was ok after rinsing out my eyes waiting for the ambulance, and on the trip to the hospital. By the time I got there my vision was clear again, and I now where safety googles under the car! Tell your son- in- law THANKS for serving our country. Let me know it I can be of any further help.

SOURCE: I need to find where

On any car or engine, you can always start at the fuel injector or carbourator and follow the line leading to it backwards till you find any part of the fuel system your looking for, including modified ones. This should only take a few minutes and has the advantage of exposing any other things (like pressure regulators, etc) also in the system that may have caused a problem. Uh...this also works from the gas tank and following it forward...or anywhere along the system you want to start! I believe Valvoline Oil Change told me they cant replace my fuel filter due to it being located in the fuel tank. On a 1993 Jeep Cherokee 4.0 it should be mounted to the body, should be located on the body around your driver's side rear tire. If you get up under there you should see it. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: 1995 Jeep grand cherokee dies when given gas

You'll need to check the fuel pressure w/ a gauge you can get at most auto parts stores. Not sure what it should be for your SUV but probably in the 40 psi to 60 psi. It should also hold that pressure when shut off. If you do replace the fuel pump, strongly recommend that you use an OEM part as aftermarket ones while cheaper tend to have a short life.

With a code reader connected to the DTC connection, are there any trouble codes stored? Is there an engine light lit? You will need a code reader to at least start a diagnosis and also a fuel pressure gauge.

Jeep won't run unless you hold down gas pedal? what could be wrong? We have a 2004 grand Cherokee.....we finally got it to start but once we left of the gas pedal it dies. ANy help would be greatly...


its not getting enough fuel to engine. it could be a plugged fuel filter, low fuel pump pressure, or a bad pressure regulator. check the fuel filter first and then go from there. also be sure plugs and wires are ok.

2000 Cherokee: Thought I had run out of gas at the house but put more gas in and wont start. It does start for 2-3sec then dies. What could it be ? fuel filter??


Are you located where it is below freezing? May just have a frozen gas line. If not I would suggest a fuel pump of fuel filter.

My oil pressure is dropping and at the same time my car is idleing to where it seems like my fuel pump is dying. Are the 2 related. If I step on the gas the oil pressure picks up and the my car gets gas...


Your oil pressure will increase and decrease with the speed of the engine. As long as your oil pressure increases, that's ok. The idle problem could be caused by a dirty fuel or air filter. I would start with replacing the fuel filter and check the condition of the air filter.

Starts but doent stay running


Does it die if you give it gas? If so you may have a clogged fuel filter. If it just runs rough and then dies you may need a tune up. Have you had maintenance performed on the vehicle recently? May be your first step. This should get you on the right track by checking these few things first.
