1996 Jeep Cherokee 4.0 L has trouble accelerating


often times the engine needs to warm up to normal operating temperature. this varies from makes and models. if you cant wait that long, having it idle for approximately 5 - 10 minutes should at least lessen the acceleration problem, but the longer you wait the better it will be on the engine.

Engine knock & loss of power/acceleration


It appears that you have lost water and over heated the motor. The systoms you describe are what happens when an extra hot engine starts to seize the pistons in the bore. Cooling down allows the engine to restart but the noise comes from broken rings and aluminium being removed from the sides of the pistons. If you have an EFI car the cpu unit is probably limiting the engine revs just to get you to athe nearest service place.I suspect you will need a replacement engine

Cherokee intermitant grinding noise in neutral


Is it when the engine first starts? It sounds like to me that the starter is getting stuck in the fly wheel. what happens is when you go to start it, the solenoid push's the gear out and spins the gear almost one full action, the grinding noise could be the starter staying engaged after the motor has starter but quickly comes out of it after driving out of it. just a thought.

Sounds like the sloshing noise is water in the a/c-heater box. The drain is probably plugged. I don't think the sloshing noise is causing the ragged running problem.

If you remove the glove box you will find the alarm module behind it next to a relay box. If you unplug the module the Jeep should start.
