How many miles are on it? A back fire like that is usually mechanical timing issues. The timing chain or gears are worn etc.

It's the gears in the front diff. that are bad. You will need to replace those gears or the entire front solid axle.

Does a 1996 Grand Cherokee Jeep have a timing belt or chain? And does either need changing?


That depends on which engine you have. Both 4.0 and V8 engines have a chain. The chain has no real time limit on how long it's good but from experience I've found that most, when well maintained will stretch to the point that they should be replaced at around 225 thousand miles.
Chain and gears are not super expensive and if you buy the best ones you can find, if you replace yours at 225-250 thousand miles the new one should outlast the vehicle.

Timing chain diagram


Just wrap the chain around the gears and lineup the dots. dot to dot and put them on. That's how it goes. The timing itself is not adjustable. It's controlled by the engines computer. It's that simple.

How do you advance the timing on a 93 jeep cherokee 4.0. I can't get the distributor cap to turn


If you look at the distributor, you will see that the hold down is a bolt through an "ear which is part of the casting of the distributor housing.
By design, it is not-adjustable. Actual timing changes are made by the engine control module.
I had a problem with my 95, that seemed like symptoms of just about everything else except timing. After checking everything else twice, I removed the distributor, ground off part of the "ear" and used a smallblock chevy dist holddown, making timing possible. It worked!
However this solution indicates that my timing chain is worn beyond the parameters of the computer. Therefore, as soon as Spring arrives, the chain & gear will be changed!
If you want to make timing adjustment, don't. But if you must, it is possible!
