SOURCE: jeep wount start

When you turn the key on all the lights come on normally? and when you try to start you lose the lights and hear a click? If so the battery cables are loose, or broken. If thats not the case it could be a relay or stuck starter or switch. You can try a screwdriver at the starter hit the little wire and the big wire it will spark and should turn the engine over "MAKE SURE IT IS IN PARK WITH THE BRAKE SET" do this last, if you do all that and it turns over you can say the starter and cables are good. Next replace relay and try, still nothing get a new switch. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: 1989 Jeep Grand Wagoneer with very squirrly steering

If your steering box is in the same place mine is, the adjustment is hidden under the radiator shroud.Generally this will remove a bit of steering play but it has to be done carefully to avoid binding.
What you really need to do is to check the entire front end for any play. Remember that "acceptable" play in one component when added to "acceptable" play in several other components = unacceptable overall play.All bushings, joints etc must be checked. Shocks need to be in good condition as well. If everything is in good condition, find a good alignment shop and ask them if it's possible to add a few degrees of positive caster to your present settings. If you have adjustment for this it will help to keep it going straight at speed. (may make turns a bit harder but with p/s it should not be noticed.
good luck

SOURCE: jeep shuts off while driving

turning over is cranking (different words for same thing) You need to do some testing to determine what is failing. Good guess would be the crank sensor however without testing, you may not solve the problem by just replacing it. I suggest you obtain a decent manual such as chilton or haynes and using a digital multi-meter, perform the tests on your sensors outlined. Since the problem is intermittent you need to test both when working and also when in "no start". Testing helps avoid changing non-failed and expensive components, and is always the best thing to do before buying parts.
No one here can tell you what's wrong simply because no one can do that essential part of diagnostics by "long distance"
Good luck!! (if you need help with anything you discover, feel free to ask!!)

Have an 89 grand wagoneer it will run fine but it will shut off and wont start to it has cooled down i am going to replace pickup coil!fuel pump.and e c u any suggestions??

Before you just start spending money, find out WHY it stops.

Run it till it quits, then check the spark. If no spark then fix that.
If no fuel, then fix THAT.

An engine needs five things to run; Ignition (spark), Fuel, air, timing, compression.

When it quits, find out what of these five your motor doesn't have, and only fix that.

You could spend hundreds and still not fix it if you don't know what is really wrong with it.

89 jeep Grand Wagoneer fuel gauge not reading.

Did the mechanic use an OEM replacement unit or an after-market unit? I think the original unit has a damping circuit to prevent immediate response when accelerating/stopping/cornering; the needle reacts slowly to changes in fuel level. If the new unit shows an immediate transient response, but settles back down to the actual fuel level, I'd just live with it.

This is a tough one! Lets start with the easiest first, When was the tranny fluid changed last? Have you checked the level? Maybe low on fluid? It almost sounds like maybe you have a contaminated fluid. I would start by checking the fluid level and the fluid condition. If the fluid is low then add some if it looks funny or smells burnt I would flush the system and change the fluid and go from there. I hope this helps you.

89 Wagoneer drives rough

The thing to do now is a fuel pressure test pump could be weak just a few pounds under the recamended pressure will do that weather its mechanical or electrical . Is there a filter in the carb. wear fuel fine hooks? If none of this is an issue at least you can eliminate fuel deliverly as the problem.

1989 jeep grand wagoneer--no gas getting to carb.--

That may be right - no gas in the carb is likely a bad fuel pump, or a clogged fuel filter.
