Question about 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

Sporatic hesitation Occassionaly my 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee with 4.0L straight six will sputter just after hitting the gas. Doesn't do it all the time though. The check engine light will come on then go off without any repairs. I've replaced the catalytic converter,fuel filter, new plugs,rotor,cap,wires. I'm thinking there could be an eletrical problem going to the injectors or the injectors might be clogged. The same problem has occured while driving down the freeway and die on me. After 5 minutes the engine turns over and all seems well with the exception of the check engine light is on. The battery is new, the connections are good and corrosion free. I don't seem to get optimum gas mileage. Around 17MPG. Any suggestions?

I have a 2004 Jeep grand cherokee straight six. I replaced the TPS sensor & IAC sensor. recently experienced high idle while in park, lack of power, and engine light came on with a code of P0121? ...


Depending on the system, P0121 is Throttle/pedal position sensor/switch A circuit range/ performance problem.

Did the TPS have slotted mounting holes? If so it may need to be adjusted.

sounds like a bad pump, filter or both. Do some testing before replacing though, a bad crankshaft sensor can do pretty much the same thing! Parts are not cheap...testing is very important!!!
