Question about 1996 Jeep Cherokee Country
This used to be an awesome vehicle until 2 weeks ago.
1997 Jeep Cherokee suddenly runs hot and dies. While driving intermittently sputters and miss fires. Check Engine light on. Replaced: thermostat, relay switch for secondary electric fan. ( I originally thought I had an overheating/fan problem, turns out its a symptom of a bigger problem).
So, thermostat, relay switch, temp sender, now I have 2 oxygen sensors. I just lost my job and I really need my truck. What is wrong with it? Any ideas?
Should I replace the 2 oxygen sensors? I also have throttle body cleaner.
What else have you ever fixed or have you seen a great vehicle suddenly run bad, heat up, cruise down the road to cough and die, what could you tell me?
Thanks for any of your time :)
The first thing you need to do is find out what that check engine light is, you local auto parts store will probably pull the codes for you for free. Other than that, maybe the head gasket is blown?
