Question about 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee
Hi, my 96 grand cherokee has problem switching to 4wd. Whenever I pull the switch handle to "fulltime 4wd" the vehicle lost power(doesn't move at all) and when I try to switch back to 2wd there's a rough sound so had to stop the car and switch back to 2wd before starting again. The car runs fine in "part-time 4wd" but maybe that's because it's in fact still in 2wd mode. Otherwise this 160,K truck is in perfect condition since I've taken care of it very well and never been off-road. Please help.
Try lubricating all your linkages and always make sure all 4 tires are the same diameter. this makes shifting in and out a lot easier. you are shifting it on the fly right?? not stopped?

A lot of Rain=Possible Water in the Gas=Erratic Running!
This sounds like it may be as simple as cleaning the water or gunk out of the gas tank which is what I always do 1st because it's easy and inexpensive.
If your fuel is contaminated with gunk, grime, WATER and/or bottom junk like rust this will cause stalling AND ROUGH ACCELERATION!
Try spraying a can of starter fluid in the air intake and see if it runs! If it does, it's most likely bad fuel or clogged injectors so....
Fill the tank with High Test, Add some DRYGAS and a good fuel system cleaner or 2 or 3 and this should dissolve all the gunk and clean the injectors! Read & follow the cans' instruction carefully.
If this cures the problem never let your gas tank get below 1/4 and especially never run it to empty as this is when the gunk and/or water will enter the system!
Hope this helps!

If you haven't changed the plugs or had the fuel system cleaned, now would be a good time to do it. The number 1 culprit for rough idles is dirty injectors or plugs. You can try an injector cleaner in a can (or bottle) for under $10 and see if it helps, and then work from there. If there isn't any improvement then if you are able to, check the plugs for any gunky buildup and if you find a bad plug, make sure you replace them all (or have them replaced) at the same time.
