Check connector inyectors (plug), maybe you dont have pulse in any of 6 cilinders... I had this problem and I found it on this.
Mechanic use a screwdriver checker of pulses in both lines from connector inyector. Try it immediately. cheers

SOURCE: 199 Jeep cherokee stalls without warning

Does it start right back up after it stalls? make sure all conections are tight at fuel pump, sounds like it could be loosing ground at pump, or hot lead is loosing its connection at pump.Also fuel pump relay could be getting hot and quits working.

You got the ignition cover, what you need to do an cylinder compression test and also check your injector for voltage while engine running hook test light to battery pos on neg and neg on pos, at injector harness check for pulsation, if you have pulsation elec. system ok, if good compression bad injector.if bad compression piston ring's or valve's.

Keeps back firing and stalls


You probably have the distributor installed one tooth off. Or if it was doing this before you did all this the timing chain has jumped a tooth. remove the distributor cap, then set the timing mark on top dead center, then have someone watch the rotor and tell you when it moves then check how many degrees it moved. It should not be no more than about 2-3 degrees if more than that you probably need a timing chain and gears. BigD

I just changed the plugs,wires,distributor cap on my 1996 jeep grand cherokee limited, the firing order is correct,but my engine is misfiring&the codes that come up on my computer/scanner reads misfire...


I would manually set it up to top dead center. (Rotate the engine by using a breaker bar and socket on the crankshaft pully bolt the same direction as it runs) with the front cylinder, #1, assuming you have a 4.0 liter straight six, spark plug out. Put your finger in the spark plug hole, and as the engine is turned by hand, you will feel "air pressure." This is coming up onto the compression stroke. With the piston at top, you are at top dead center. (Zero aligned for timing marks) Now remove the distributor cap, your rotor should be pointing at the stud for the number one plug wire.
Turning it will then move the rotor to the next plug to be fired.

301 & 306 are cylinder #1 and #6 misfire. Your spark plug wires are not in the proper firing order in relation to the correct cylinder and distributor locations.

Check engine light will not go out giving a multiple cylinder misfire code on 4 &6


Check and/or replace the easy stuff first. Spark plugs (all), plug wires, Distributor cap and rotor. If these don't solve it have a wet and dry compression test and fuel pressure test done. those tests will get you in the right direction.

good luck

What does the code 43 mean on a 1996 jeep grand cherokee and how do u fix it?


Trouble code P0043 means: HO2S Heater Control Circuit Low (Bank 1, Sensor 3)Hex code 43 is for a misfire.

DTC 43 indicates a cylinder misfire, but does not specify which cylinder is misfiring. To pinpoint which cylinder is misfiring, you need a scan tool and get the "P" code, as you can see in the chart below. So it is quite possible you're barking up the wrong tree.
0d4a53b.gif

If you go to an Autozone they will scan the codes for you, if the CEL is currently on, and tell you the DTCs they find. That will get you closer to the problem.
I'm fairly confident that if you do a complete tune-up, spark plugs, spark plug wires, distributor cap and rotor, that the misfire codes will be taken care of. Be sure you read this, Dodge Ram 1500 Running Rough before replacing the spark plug wires, or if you have already replaced them.

Hope this help (remember comment and rated this)..

Spark plugs


Firing order for the 4.0L 6-cylinder is as follows:

1-5-3-6-2-4

As for the spark plugs, it looks like the Autolite AL 985 plugs are what you need. If you are going to replace the plugs, might as well also replace the plug wires, the distributor cap and rotor (if you have those, I dont recall which year they went to the distributorless ignition).

Need diagram for 1998 Jeep Cherokee sport spark plug wiring


hi, you didn't say what engine you have, I'll assume it's the 4.0 L in line 6 cylinder. Standing on the PASSENGER side of the jeep, the spark plug at the front of the engine is #1, the next is #2, and so on to #6 which is at the back (nearest the windshield).
The distributor is between you and the valve cover on the engine. Pretend the top of the distributor cap is the face of a clock.
The #1 spark plug wire goes in the cap at what would be the 6 o'clock position, (as viewed from your position standing on the passenger side, facing the side of the engine). The firing order direction is clockwise, so the 'hand' of the clock (actually the rotor in the cap) would continue to the next distributor cap plug in, which would be spark plug wire to #5 (8 o'clock position), then #3 (10 o'clock position), #6 (12 o'clock position), #2 (2 o'clock position), #4 (4 o'clock position). So all this means isi your firing order is, 1,5,3,6,2,4 If you have a different motor or any questions, let me know. Good Luck! countrycurt0
