SOURCE: Normal coolant temp for 2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee city/highway V6

U should have the accuracy of the gauge tested before u spend any more money on this, factory gauges are not very accurate. U are still in the normal zone though no matter what the other expert says, and jeep Cherokee's run hotter than 195 due to how small the engine bay is, my friend and fellow tech works for a jeep dealer and says hot running on V6's and overheating esp on the V8's is a common issue even on new trucks.

Just bought a 94 jeep grand Cherokee all wheel drive and it is making a loud noise and wanders all over the road . what can the problem be


yes the tire size is very important! however assuming everything is the correct equipment the wandering problem is likely the u-joints in the front axles binding. If this is the case the front axle u-joints need to be replaced. This is very common on 4x4 vehicles with solid front axles. Good luck!

I have a 2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee 6 cyl. I am getting fault codes P0351,P0352 and P0353 which is defined as #1,#2 and#3 ignition coil circuit and code P0505 JEEP Idle Control System Malfunction and code...


I would check Cam Position Sensor as is directly related with ignition. Power loss is due to the ECU going on "limp mode" to prevent further damage.
I hope this helps!

Jeep grand cherokee steering problems


Hi,
Looks like suspension problem on shocks.
Did you have your suspension checked by underchasis techs/garage?
Just try to push one side of the vehicle up and down, if it bounces when you release it, means your shock absorber is not working anymore and that's the time you have to replace it.Upgraded shocks would be better to replace it, use GAS type shocks.
The stabilisers works only when turning at high speed and uneven roads.
Hope that helps!

Loose / wandering steering. Ball joints are new. Wheel bearings seem tight.


That's a classic sign of a loose steering gear box on that generation Grand Cherokee. Have your jeep checked out for play, in the gearbox.

My jeep jumps or bucks when i accelarate, do i need to replace the throttle position sensor? if so where is it located and can i do it myself


they are located on the throttle plate. you'll see a linkage that moves when you push the peddal.
they are quite easy to change 2 screws I think. just make sure it goes back on the same as it was before. this problem could also be caused by a weak fuel pump or a clogged fuel filter.

REMOVAL - 4.7L
The Camshaft Position Sensor (CMP) on the 4.7L V–8 engine is bolted to the front/top of the right cylinder head (CMP Location—4.7L Engine).

It is easier to remove/install sensor from under vehicle.

Raise and support vehicle.
Disconnect electrical connector at CMP sensor (CMP Location—4.7L Engine).
Remove sensor mounting bolt (CMP Location—4.7L Engine).
Carefully twist sensor from cylinder head.
Check condition of sensor o-ring.
See picture for sensor location.

Have a 1996 jeep grand cherokee zg model


The Jeep has steering idlers (short 7" arms) that eliminate wandering. Sounds like they are worn but FIRSTLY check that you have 4 identical tyre pressures as just one tyre front or back being low will give you the wandering sensation in a 4x4

Remove screws for lens. You may have to access them from inside the hatch. Then pull out lens, then turn and pull out bulb and socket, Push and turn then pull bulb out.
