Question about 2000 Jeep Cherokee

1 Answer

2000 Jeep Cherokee Sport 4.0l

I have a shaking engine, thought it was the plugs replaced but still the same problem. It has 124K never changed the timing belt or chain. Checked the noses for leak, found nothing. It seems it is running in 5 cylinders. Could it be that the timing is off, feels like it. The shaking began a few days ago and today I also have the check engine light on...

Any help would help....

    Have you tested the cap, rotor & wires? do that before getting into the more complicated stuff...

Find out what the code is from the check engine light. Autozone will usually read them for free.

Will a 2000 4.0 from a jeep cherokee sport replace a 2000 4.0 in a jeep grand cherokee?

Yes...both are identical. Only thing I'd check further on is if one has a manual transmission you may have a different flywheel flange or will need a pilot bushing if the vehicle getting the engine is stick.
If both are problem at all.

2000 cherokee sport / ran good / had plugs changed & new valve cover with new gasket = picked it up , check engine lite on; scaned it ; comes up cycl 6 misfire everytime? [6cyl4.0]

Sounds like something may not have been reinstalled properly. I would take it back and have them recheck the job. I would check around that cylinder to see if something was left disconnected. Also check the spark plug gap of that plug, it may be incorrect.

I have a 2000 jeep cherokee sport that has a check engine light that starts blinking & it has a shaking in the engin. i have treid everything. any suggestions?

What have you tried? Shaking can be from some of your cylinders not firing causing the engine to wobble. Do you have rodents? I had some rabbits get under my hood and eat my spark plug wires. Sounds just like what you are describing.

2000 cherokee sport 4.0 hard cold starts and rough idle

Did you try changing the air breather for the motor?You need three things inorder for the engine to run well. Air,fuel,and spark.since you had a tune up and fuel flushed.I can only think of two things.First I never heard of flushing a fuel filter,you change it ( not flush it ) change your fuel filter,eliminate the guess work.And change your breather.

On the left side of the engine if your looking from the front bumper. There should be six of them in a row. If all else fails follow the lines off of your distributor cap.
