SOURCE: low battery gauge indicated

Not necessarily,this can also be caused by poor battery cable connections or a bad battery cable or a bad connection to the gauge or just a bad gauge.Check or have them checked first,and then have the alternator output tested,a voltmeter connected at the battery posts should measure 14.5 to 14.8 volts at an idle,any lower than this than the alternator is the problem.

There is no such thing as a small fuel leak. Even if the car was running great, it is extremely dangerous. You can "section" the line using a small pipe cutter and brass compression fittings if you don't want to change the entire length (providing it's not really rusted. Most of, if not all your problems can definitely attributed to that leak.

SOURCE: 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee stalls immediately after

check intake manifold air temp sensor and engine coolant sensor...one may be out of range but not enough to turn on dash light. tests and specs can be found in chiltons or haynes, test is done with digital multi-meter.

My 1994 Jeep grand cherokee starts n idles but then dies.


Engine stall or RPM fluctuates at idle.

This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control

Oil pressure guage pushes to 80 when not idling.


In an engine in good condition, oil pressure is a function of RPM. Higher rpm, higher pressure. Whne coasting downhill, in gear, the engine rpm will increase, hence, the oil pressure will go up, as required, and as expected.

There is nothing wrong with your engine, unless the oil pressure goes excessively high under any regime. Low oil pressure is a sign of low rpm, or under load, a sign of worn parts.

Rough Idle, oil pressure tanks, kills jeep.


If your vehicle was purchased in the USA, it is against federal law for a dealer to sell it without a cat. If you are somewhere else, I have no idea what laws are. I have no idea what "cruising with the clutch" means.
Your oil pressure dropping may only show that at the same time the engine has stalled or is turning so slow that you are not making enough oil pressure. I would check the throttle position sensor, map sensor and idle air control valve for proper readings and operation, also check for minor vacuum leaks. It seems that your idle is too low and allowing the engine to stall. There are other things that can cause this besides what I mentioned but those are the main ones I'd check first. Testing can be done with a decent multi meter and using a chiltons or haynes manual as a guide.
Control systems need testing to get a proper diagnosis...That's one thing I can't do from here.
Do the testing and likely you will find the problem. Many larger parts stores will do a free code scan...that too is helpful.
Good luck

1993 jeep grand Cherokee...stutter in drive at low rpm


Hello;
Have you checked your fuel pressure and volume? You may not be getting the ful sufficiently to the injectors. Also, change your fuel filter if you haven't already. Is the check engine light on?
Thanks;
