Question about 1999 Jeep Cherokee

1 Answer

Problem with jeep cutting off and not starting again Thanks for responding. The air cleaner is new and the air way is clear. I just replaced the radiator, water pump, and hoses. The temperature gauge in the dash does not work now as well as the cutting off problem. The weird thing is if I let it sit for several hours it starts right up without putting your foot on the gas pedal, but when it has run for a while and cut it off and try to restart it won't turn over.

Check for intake leaks, intake hose leaks, check mass air flow sensor.
02 sensors will keep setting off a lean code until the air problem is fixed.

I replaed the fuel pump on my 1995 jeep now. it will not run it just starts and dies

Check fuel pump again or replace old one if it run with it to see if it's the new that's not working probably if so buy another fuel pump from junkyard not new or eBay. Check/change fuel filter. Check spark plugs/ air intake Also clean the trotle with that carburetor choke cleaner sensor next to it. Injectors also.

Any shop that will look at your vehicle will need to do a comprehensive diagnostics. An educated guess at what to look at is the idle air control valve. If that is receiving a signal but not responding, it may have gone bad and is in need of replacement. Before replacing, make sure that the passageway going to it is clear. Don't turn the plunger on the valve while it's off the throttle body.

Fuel line or fuel filter location. The jeep wants to cut off and does not want to start unless I put the gas to the floor.

Your problem may be the reverse of what you are thinking...Putting it on the floor should add more air and lean it out. You may have a leaking injector. Before cold starting spray some carb cleaner into the throttle body. If it starts right up, then look at fuel pump or filter. If it takes longer to start, then look at injectors and map sensor. Air cleaner element is clean, correct?

Replaced radiator on 2008 jeep now gets hot & cuts off

I think it is related to the cooling system, still having air in it. Make sure the heater is running/on when your running the engine. Could be a faulty ECT sensor (engine coolant temp.) but proof it out. proof it out, remove the sensor and see if there is air behind it and see if the sensor is within parameters.

1992 3.0 toyota runs but cuts off when i hit bumb in road

mass air flow sensor (MAF) its not a cheep unit either. You can pull it off the air cleaner and see if anything is blocking air from travling through if so clean it with carb cleaner (dont touch sensor though) or remove any objects, then see if it helped.

Air wont blow

The high speed setting on any blower bypasses the dropping resistor completely so I suspect you have a failing switch contact. If you can access it, some 'contact cleaner' from an electronic supply outlet may help to restore its operation but generally, once a switch develops problems, it will fail again.
