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.

How to engage the 4 wheel drive on a 1991 jeep cherokee


You can "shift on the fly" at up to 45mph - just let off the gas and pull the shifter back to 4hi. DO NOT try going to 4lo while moving.

Another way is to stop, put it in neutral, and pull the shifter back to 4hi or 4lo.

This is vacuum activated - so if you can't get it to engage - the vacuum motor is failed - or you have a disconnected or rotted vacuum line.

Cherokees have the command - track. You'll see a lever next to the transmission shifter that has letters 2H, 4H, N, 4L on it.
You can shift from 2H (2wheel drive high range) to 4H (4wheel drive high range) at any legal speed.
If it's an automatic, I recommend just taking your feet off of both pedals, so there's not a lot of torque being passed thru the transfer case.
If it's a standard I recommend stepping on the clutch when you shift, but it's not necessary.
To go to Neutral just pull the shifter back one more position to the N position. To shift into 4L (4wheel drive lo range) you must be stopped.
I also recommend shifting the transmission into neutral when you do this. Push the shifter to the right, then pull it back.

Thanks!

I have a 2000 dodge caravan. When the engine is running with van in park engine runs fine. When put into a drive gear the engine runs really rough and even stalls. The transmission fluid is ok. When the...


Sounds like there is a problem with the Torque converter in the transmission or Transmission itself. When you put it in gear it should initially go into neutral but occasionally the transmission will stick part way in gear and partially in neutral putting a load on the motor. It is not enough of a load to get the vehicle moving but it is enough to stall the motor. This could be a simple clutch adjustment in the Automatic clutch to a PCV valve issue to a need to rebuild the whole transmission because of a problem with the control body or transmission pump itself. Sorry for the bad news.

The TCC solenoid in the transmission needs to be replaced. It is under the side cover. It controls the converter to lock up for better fuel mileage. If you want to drive car until you get it fixed you can un-plug the connector going to the transmission on the front of transmission. This will keep it from going to lock up mode and keep it from stalling until you can fix it. Common problem.

95 cherokee sport stalling


Since the car stall only in the drive position, it sounds(i'm not there to actually ck the car)like when the engine torques, it might be pulling on a harness somewhere and killing the ignition. Do this,start the car and under the hood while the engine is running, move or jiggle the harnesses around and see if the car stalls. If the car stalls try to pinpoint the location on the harness and look for frayed or broken wires.
