Question about Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

1997 jeep grand cherokee-after weeks of sudden shuddering & engine shut offs (mostly occurred while I was driving), yesterday the engine began to billow smoke. arranged for someone to come out to the house to take a look and they noticed that the radiator was leaking. so they replaced my radiator, thermostat & banged out the cat. converter. After all this, they said that the exhaust is still getting VERY hot and is not sure why? Told me this needs to also be addressed. Any ideas what might be making it hot?

If they punched out the cat, it was probably because raw fuel was damaging it. Check to see if your engine has a misfire. Look at your spark plugs, if one has a different wear pattern your problem most likely lies in that cylinder

SOURCE: 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee 6 Losing Coolant

Pull your oil cap, check on the underside, if its white and thick you need a head gasket. that would explaine why the dealer telling you that you need a new headgasket. if it "looks normal" change your water pump.

SOURCE: 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee leaking coolant and power steering fluid

Just a heads up, $10 bucks will buy you a seal kit for the P.S. pump. I topped mine off for a couple months, then the oring on the high pressure line (from pump, front center) blew and dumped the reservoir in a matter of miles.

The line can be a stinker to get off, recommend driving the car for a few minutes to heat up the pump a little. Don't forget the 20MM wrench.

SOURCE: Jeep Grand Cherokee Power Loss

a bad cam sensor will cause vehicle to shut off while driving, and cause a hard time starting. but this usually sets a trouble code p0340. scan vehicle to see if any codes come up. after it is fixed, erase codes with a obd2 scanner. if you do not have one, you can go to any auto parts store and they will erase codes for free.

95 Jeep Grand Cherokee leaking ATF, shudders when driving


Bank1 sensor 3 O2 heater. This can cause the shudder as engine adjustments are made.

The O2 sensors have built in heating elements to rapidly heat the part and save fuel. Its possible that engine is trying to adjust to compensate and is why it shudders.

As for trans leak, get it up on the rack for inspection. Could be simple pan gasket. Quick change oil/lube could see it.

My 1997 Jeep grand cherokee is running real rough when I accelerate. Now while driving it it keeps stopping but will start right back up? help???


check the cables of the spark plugs, some times it occurs that the cables get loose from its plastic retainers and touch any metal in the engine, causing missfire of the related spark plug, hence rough running of the engine. Put all cables on the retainers making sure none touches the bare metal of the engine. That should help.

Jeep grand cherokee 97 shutting off while driving


It may not be the same problem But, My Jeep would quit until it cooled down and then I could start it and it would run again. Did this on and off for weeks. Turned out that it was the sending unit in the fuel tank. Cold fuel, no problem. warm fuel it would shut off. Cost me $500. Hope this helps, Good Luck

1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee cranks but won't start


Same thing happened to me at about 140k. It was the fuel pump. Best way to test if your pump is failing and loosing pressure is to see if the car will start immediately after it has been running, or turn the key to the alt position for a few minutes before starting. If your engine fires faster after it has been running or the key has been in the alt position you will probably need a new fuel pump. Great news is with a very deep socket to get the tank straps off its a 30 minute job to replace the pump/filter assembly.
