My 1996 jeep Cherokee xj will sputter out and die when I put it in drive but when I put it in reverse it will stay running and driving


my guess is the gearing , that reverse has is very low.
and with lower gearing a weaker engine can run
id bet you if you use your right foot, on the throttle as you
go to drive, it will move, or use L gear.
the sputter, is not related to the transmission
Sputter is gross misfiring of the engine, 4.0L?? what engine?
and the top cause of that. is not getting a tune up.
spark plugs. ever do those in 10 long years.'
or spark wires>?
filters, fluids and spark? a tune up.
the Jeep runs a map sensor, so does not sputter with air leaks.
the jeep IAC can stick. and not hold an idle ,in drive.
but you can with a fast right foot, if not , its gross misfire for sure.
your right foot is not gas its air
when you press the throttle you add air and the EFI matches air with fuel. in that order
so if it still sputters, is not the lack of air. see?> spark is next,.

for 100 years folks avoid tuneups, is that you? the classic cause?

My 03 Rendezvous sputters when reversing out of my driveway in the morning. Could it be from the car needing a tune up?


IF VECHICLE HAS OVER 100000 MILES, REPLACE SPARK PLUGS AND WIRES,REPLACE AIR FILTER,CHANGE FUEL FILTER AND CLEAN FUEL INJECTORS.WEAK COILS MAKE CAR SKIP SPUTTER, IF ALL FAILS YOU HAVE LOW COMPRESSION WORN VALVES.

Won't back up!


well slipping in reverse would be tranny...;but by saying the engine spits,,,sputters ,,,stalls,,,,sounds like engine not enough power to drive it in reverse...i'm guessing forward no problems...first thing comes to mind is in reverse engine moves on motor mounts as you give it gas..could be wiring harness rubbing on block causing short condition..when in forward engine moves opisite direction...while idling in park, shake wiring harness all over different spots see if you can simulate the condition.....are there any engine codes....also does it have a problem in reverse on a flat surface... or only on a incline....if only on an incline check fuel pressure while in reverse on incline.. see if loosing pressure for some reason..on incline fuel goes to lowest part of tank...

Sputtering at idle and reverse??


Leaky EGR. Faulty plugs or wires. Vacuum leak at intake manifold or hose connections. With enginre running, wiggle all vacuum lines around and look for loose damaged or disconnected hoses,and listen for a hissing.
