Poor fuel economy


If there is a vac leak or a split in the hose between the intake and the MAF you can get a code for the sensor. The code is saying the data from the sensor is not what it should be, not necessarily that the sensor has failed.
Clogged air filter or box could cause a problem too.

I have a 97 jeep cherokee that stalls and backfires and it has backfired to the point where it blew open my muffler. It doesn't backfire all the time, just at times...what can it be?


It's not possible to pinpoint, with just online info, what is causing the backfire, but if it blew your muffler open, the engine is definitely dumping raw fuel into the exhaust. Look into what can cause excessive fuel to be dumped into the exhaust and you may find the cause of your problem.

'95 cavalier backfired blew out muffler? help


when it backfires there is three things that can cause this water or moisture in the distributor cap or a cracked cap, or if it has a coil pack then mositure on the coils or bad spark plug wires. Fuel pump won't cause a backfire except on two stroke engines. and the other things that can cause a back fire is timing chain, or burnt or bent valves or bad compression rings.

1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Stalls out,engine quits running


since its a 1997 your jeep has EFI, electronic fuel injection. The most probable reason for your troubles would be the injectors or a problem with the computer controling them, not allowing enough gas to be pushed into the cylinder causing stalling or lack of power, also too much gas iin the cylinder can lead to back firing and stalling. This would also explain the reason it takes so long to start back up some times, all the excess gas in the cylinder is flooding the motor and u have to wait till the gas disipates till the engine will turn over.
