Why is my 2001 jeep grand cherokee blowing smoke everytime i am stopped at the red light .


If the smoke is black , the mixture is too rich. If it's white and disappears soon after accelerating, then it's valve stem seals.

I have a Hyundai Trajet 2002 Gasoline. I have a problem with keeping the engine alive.


The engine is running very rich that is why the exhaust is emitting black smoke. The engine needs a tune up so the air fuel mixture is correct.

Have you checked the coolant temp sensor. They also have something called a MAP(manifold absolute pressure) sensor that could be causing this issue. This sensor will have a 4 pin connector and 1 vacuum line going to it. Should be on the firewall, just behind the engine.

Jeep needs to crank twice to start + rich gas smells once started


That code PO455 is indicating that you have a fuel vapor leak somewhere in the system. I'd check from purge canister back taking a close look at all the vapor hose to the tank. If all that check out, purge solenoid & canister would be my next area to check. That's probably what your smelling , so it might be easier than you think to sniff out the source.
