It sounds like your lossing spark not so much a fuel problem these 4.0 are great motors but have cam sensors and crank sensor problems i would check that first its much cheaper then the fuel pump and only takes 5 min to repair i just put a fuel pump in mine it cost 112.00 to buy it i put it in my self the sensors im talking about are around 20 - 30 dollars

What it sound like to me when you said it back fires there are 2 things come to my mind the timing mite be off a little bit so some unspent fuel can slip throuth and bulid up in your ex-sause and then igniting and then making back pressure then choking off
your engine or your fuel is not burning all the way and causing the same plurume.

My 1995 jeep will die just driving and sometimes will start right back up other times you have to wait about an hour. fuel pump is working fine you can hear it


The pump can be running but not pumping any fuel.
When it stops running you will need to figure out if you are loosing spark to the plugs or fuel to the injectors.

97 jgc laredo 4.0 in line 6, 4x4...ok here it is...sometimes the fuel pump will run and start. However like now the fuel pump is not running...kinda like intermit power..sometimes it runs sometimes it...


If the pump starts to jam it wills seem like it won't run. The stuttering on startup is also related to a failing fuel pump as the intank pumps in our Jeep (I have the same ZJ)

Next time it won't start, try hitting the fuel tank with a small hammer (lighty as per not to crack it)
This can sometimes jar the pump in such a way to get the fins spinning again. If this works I would reccomend replacing the fuel pump.

You should also hear the pump prime when you turn the ignition to on (before start)
Priming the pump 3-4 times can help the stuttering on startup.

You can also get a fuel line pressure tester from most auto parts stores and verify that you are holding pressure after the pump is off.

All of the lights work on my 93 Jeep Cherokee 6 cyl except the taillights. Can't seem to find a fuse out and I've replaced bulbs which I've tested and know they work.


There is a plug under the dash, directly under the steering column, that sometimes gets unplugged accidently. From what I remember, it's white. Check to see if any of them white plugs directly under there are slightly unplugged. Happened on my 93 grand cherokee once and I almost got rear ended from having no brake lights.

1998 Jeep Cherokee Sport w/ 4 liter in-line 6, I have a check engine light on and the hand held diagnotic unit is telling me "BANK 1 SENSOR 1 HIGH VOLTAGE". What is the cause(s)?


Your O2 sensor needs to be replaced. These sensors constantly out put voltage from .1 volts up to 1.3 volts, your sensor is stuck in the high range. It is the first O2 closest to the engine.

My '97 Jeep Grand Cherokee ltd 6 cylinder is giving me fits right now. It stalls backfires losing speed while driving down road then if I pull over and turn off and on sometimes it will be okay. What could...


When was the last time you tuned up your Jeep? Spark plugs, cap and rotor can certainly attribute to if not cause the problem you are describing. Definitely sounds like a fuel problem (too much fuel being dumped in the cylinders.)

Jeep cherokee cranks but no start


this is a fuel problem, fuel pump is bad, or fuel filter is clogged up. check to see if fuel pump is working. check fuses and relays if it does not work. to rule out a bad fuse or relay.

1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited Alternator issues?


have the alternator regulator and diodes tested. sometimes when the regulators fail they allow ac voltage to go to the battery. ac voltage doesn't charge the battery properly (causes it to deep cycle and shortens its life) and causes all sorts of funny problems with the car. also make sure the battery is secured properly, vibration isn't good for them at all.
