Question about 1997 Jeep Cherokee

97' Jeep Cherokee revving problem...

1997 Jeep Cherokee: When I start it and drive it for about 5-10 miles it starts revving the rpm's like I'm pushing the gas and letting off but I'm not. Then while it's doing this it's hard to pick up speed. Sometimes if I stop it will still try to rev but once in a while it will just die when I come to a stop. What's the problem?

There are several reasons this can happen. First check all vacuum lines to make sure they are connected and unbroken. Second, have a code test done to see if anything has registered in the computer. There are also individual component tests you can do but what I suggested is a good place to begin.

What is a bad crank sensor. My 97 grand Cherokee might take 3 min to crank and may cut off in a few minutes while I'm driving it.


The crank sensor Is an input to the PCM. It is used to detetect RPM and may control spark and/or fuel. a bad crank sensor can manifest as prolonged cranking, stalling, not starting... It happens to be a pretty common issue with Jeeps in my professional experience.

I have a '97 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4.0 liter that won't idle


Check your throtle postition sensor. It monitors what postion the throtle is at and sends that info to the ecm. It will go bad and cause that problem.

My 97 Grand Cherokee Laredo has the display screen for service and notification of low fluids and shows the jeep body. It tells me how many miles til my next service and so forth. I was wondering what...


The most likely cause of something like this in a Chrysler vehicle is a faulty Body Control Module (BCM.) I believe on the Grand Cherokee, it's located under the driver-side instrument panel. It will likely have to be replaced, but you may want to contact the dealer to see if re-programming the BCM might help it. These modules aren't cheap, unfortunately!

I hope this helps! :)

OD light on 97 Jeep comes on when it's cold outside


Calvin...... You need to treat your Jeep to a new THERMOSTAT. The Overdrive is connected to the engine coolant temperature and if the engine is n ot warmed up properly, the Overdrive will not engage. Try to get a thermostat from the Jeep dealer so you will have exactly the right one, some of the cheapoie ones will not work right. Dave in Iowa
