1996 Jeep Cherokee Sport bogs down

When going down the highway. Jeep will be running fine then all of a sudden it will start to bog down and sputter. What is the fuel pressure supposed to be on a 1996 Jeep Cherokee 4.0 inline six? Maybe the fuel pump?

I just posted a simular resonse in another post. What is sounds like it that the fuel pump is starting to go bad. When it heats up after use the pressure drops not pusing the full amount of fuel. Whenits cold it works fine until it heats back up 10-20 mins. remember fuel in the tank helps cool the pump so keep it soewhat full but sounds like the damage is done. your probally gonna have to replace it.

1994 Jeep Cherokee is bogging down and getting hot!


ok if the timing chain was bad it would not run. bogging down is from increased resistance from something. since you have overheating i would guess the water pump broke when you heard the sound. ther is a belt around it and that would cause this. since it idles fine i would wait till it is cold and open the radiator then run the engine and see if you see water moving in the radiator. if nothing after 10 min then i would suspect the water pump. watch that you don't overheat the engine doing this. that would cause other problems that could be more expensive to fix good luck

89 jeep cherokee 4.0 it bogs down and will accelerate in drive


Make sure that the timing is correct and that the spark from the coil is healthy. Problem can also be with the overdrive in the converter. If it's stuck on it can do that too.

Engine looses power and tranny wont shift


Transmission is likely reacting to poor engine performance. Check cap, rotor & wires...Check fuel filter (if they haven't been changed in a really long time, don't even look...just change them). If you find nothing unusual, check codes (if any)
I think you most likely have an ignition problem at this point but you have to do some "hands on" checking to determine what's going on...
Good luck

Will suddenly start to backfire and sputter, dying down but not stalling out. If immediately turned off and on it clears up and runs okay again.


it happened to me on my 98 4.0 sport, had to change the cat and both o2 sensor, didn't do it since... good luck....
