Question about Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

I have a 04 Grand Cherokee 4.0 six. CE light comes on sometimes runs very rough. Rebooting the ignition sometimes helps. All environmentals seem to be a non-factor(ambient temp, moisture level, etc.)I am fairly sure it is a pcm issue. What aftermarket pcm's will replace the stock unit and do they completely replace what is stock? I have found some aftermarket chips online but I am not sure if they will solve my prob. Any help will be most appreciated.

    Fault points to cylinder 3. Either fuel injector(I replaced, condition still exists), spark plug, injector wire, plug wire or pcm. I change plugs about 4000 mi before the problem first appeared. It was very intermittent at first but lately it has been happening more often. At times it will run fine for a week or more. CE light will go out.

Unplug and look very closely at the #3 injector wiring. It runs very close to a bracket on the throttle body and has been known to "rub through" and short to ground on the bracket. If that is the case just re-insulate the wire with electrical tape and route it away from the bracket. The rub spot will be very faint as it only takes one strand of wire to short the circuit in an intermittent condition. I hope this helps.

I have a Kia Rio 2005 Cinco( 5 door) Running really rough until I push down gas pedal,,, Then it seems lOk still a little r bogged down', It doesn't stall just runs rough without accelerration? Oxyg

To begin with, is your "check engine (CE)" light on? If it was on and now its not, you need to replace the bulb. If CE lights is on, find out the codes before doing anything. If bulb is good and "CE" does not come on, begin with: (1) gapping spark plugs, (2) replace spark plug wires (if haven't changed them within the last 2), then the coil. If your Cinco is still idles rough, adjust gas pedal until idling smoothly. If this still doesn't help, replace your two oxygen sensors. If still running rough, the converter. After doing all this and problem is still present, take it to a mechanic you trust.

Idles irratic and runs rough down road after warmed up

Rough on idle when the engine is warm means there are many areas to be checked and it can start with the ECM , the fuel pump and more likely the sensors, check the throttle valve, the camsensor which can be set off which might need a correction. Also the vacuum feed for auto advance needs to checked.

Sounds like you want to double check the firing order and making sure that you wired the ignition back properly and if everything's in order you will want to check the timing if the timing is off then it will overheat or it'll Run 2 Cool either way and possibly it could be timing related as in timing belt slipped a gear

You need to begin tracing harness wire that has no power, back to the computer. If you can locate the wire at the computer, first check it there. If no signal from the computer at the pin, then change computer.

Runs rough and stalling

Sounds to be related to a fuel or an ignition issue. Check out the history on the vehicles maintenance. Look at when the last COMPLETE tune-up was. Can check fuel line pressure, for a clogged CAT or defective muffler. If the engine light is on while it is running then you have stored code/s, if so then have them read. This will help you in finding the source of your Jeep's problem.
