It is fairly easy the alternator sits on top of the engine. Remove the serpentine belt their is a spring loaded belt tensoiner that rotates and belt will come right off. Remove the wires from the back of the alternator and remove the bolts holding it in place. The install is reverese of removal. IF you need more help go to you local auto parts store and pick up the Haynes manual it has a more in depth step by step guide.

SOURCE: P0308 cylinder 8 misfire detected? How to repair?

Fuel injector cleaner commonly has a low success rate, and will not help if it's more than one cylinder that is missfiring. The fact that you have a "rattle" noise, leads me to beleive the engine is not receiving fuel on one or more cylidners. If it is all the cylinders, than the fuel pump may be the culprit, or the fuel pump circuit. But if only one cylidner is missfiring than it is a possibly an injector. A code P0300 refers to all cylinder missfires, and any code between P0301-P0308 distinugiushes a particular cylinder.

Misfiring
1- a general electrical tune-up (spark plugs, wire set, cap & rotor) is a basic start to cure this issue. Wiggle the dist shaft while you are in there, if you have one.
2- Then a good carbon cleaning / throttle-body cleaning.
3- Vacuum leaks at any of the hoses that connect to the Intake manifold; especially the MAP sensor connection.
4- If that does not help then the O2 sensor could be bad or drifting.
5- Funky coil/coil-packs
6- Theoretically a microsecond glitch in either the cam or crank shaft sensors would cause this, but I am not aware of this as a typical cause.
7- Lastly a funky PCM but again it is not common for this to cause miss-firing.

Note for the V8 then also:
a) bad erg valve (this dilutes the combustion gases and hence raises the combustion temp
b) a leaky plenum/Intake manifold gasket. Leaking Intake gasket symptoms

Also can check the TSB 18-48-98 Ignition System Cross Fire/Secondary Ignition Wire Induction (Complete Version )

Hope help with this (remember rated this). Good luck and have a nice day.

I have a 97 grande cherokee limited v-8 that will die while driving. it usually starts back up on the 1st or 2nd try. autozone checked battery, starter and alternator and all were good. does it just need...


Hi...I think it is very possible that your fuel pump could be starting to go bad, which can go with or without notice or symptoms...yours seems to be giving you notice!

Here is a couple Auto Zone has that look like a good deal to me, but it's the labor charge to have it replaced that will hurt a bit!: http://www.autozone.com/autozone/parts/1997-Jeep-Grand-Cherokee-4WD/Fuel-Pump/_/N-j9koaZ8vcz2

If you need more details about youe Jeep ZJ Grand Cherokee, can check this documents about Repair Manual: Grand Cherokee 1993-1998 FSM

To get out, it's easy and doesn't require a prybar.
  • Get a 14mm or 9/16" socket and a long handled ratchet or breaker bar.
  • Get the belt around all the pulleys except the A/C compressor or Alternator.
  • The tensioner pulley is near the Alternator toward the center of the engine. It's on a spring loaded arm. Get your socket on the center nut of this pulley.
  • Slowly pull the ratchet toward the center of the engine. The pulley will pivot on the arm allowing you to get the belt on the final pulley.
  • Slowly release the tension.
  • You're done

Hope helps (remember to rate this answer).

Where on a 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo are the grounds on the engine block? ie:pcm,ignition coil etc.


The circuits you mention should be grounded to the battery through the main harness. The battery should be grounded to the engine at or close to the alternator, then the engine should be grounded to the frame then the body. Look for braided metal wiring.

How do I remove the alternator on my 1997 Grand cherokee ??


Removal & Installation

Once the determination is made that the alternator is at fault, off vehicle testing can be used to determine the defective component inside the alternator.
See Figures 1 through 11
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the drive belt.
  3. If necessary, remove any splash shielding for easier access to the alternator.

Fig. 1: For easiest access to the alternator assembly, first remove the splash shield mounting fasteners ...

966f538.jpg

Fig. 2: ... then swing it out of the way for access to the alternator assembly

c0f1ee6.jpg

Fig. 3: View of the alternator electrical connections-(A) battery positive, (B) field terminals, (C) wire harness hold down, (D) ground terminal
  1. Tag and disengage the alternator wiring.

It may be necessary to remove the alternator and mounting bracket from the vehicle as an assembly.
  1. If equipped, remove the front alternator assembly mounting plate.

Fig. 4: Remove the six nuts and bolts that secure the front mounting plate to the alternator assembly

Fig. 5: Remove the front alternator assembly mounting plate from below the vehicle
  1. Unfasten the alternator mounting and pivot bolts and remove the alternator.
  2. If installing the original alternator assembly, push out the pivot bushing as illustrated.

Fig. 6: After removing the alternator assembly front mounting plate, remove the front engine-to-alternator bracket mounting stud

Fig. 7: Remove the two alternator bracket-to-engine mounting bolts

Fig. 8: Remove the alternator and mounting bracket assembly from the vehicle

Fig. 9: If re-installing, the alternator has a pivot bushing on the pivot arm that should be pushed out before installation

Fig. 10: Mount a C-clamp and 18mm socket on the alternator pivot bushing ...

c4fac77.jpg

Fig. 11: ... then compress the C-clamp until it pushes the alternator pivot bushing out
To install:
  1. Mount the alternator to the brackets with the nuts and bolts. Tighten the two mounting bolts and nuts to 40 ft. lbs. (54 Nm).
  2. If the alternator and mounting bracket were removed as an assembly, install the assembly into the vehicle.
  3. If removed, install the front mounting plate.
  4. Engage the alternator electrical connections.
  5. If removed, install the splash shield.
  6. Install the drive belt and attach the negative battery cable.

Also, other details can find in your Grand Cherokee Repair Manual.

Good luck (and remember rated this).
