Question about 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

Crankshaft paper I have the same problem with my 99 grand cherokee limited stalling out at lower speeds such as taking off from stop lights and such. I have been searching high and low for a solution. I do recall reading somewhere that the new crankshaft sensors come with a thin piece of paper on the bottem like you said. This paper spacer must remain on there as it will grind off on the first fire. If the paper is removed, it will ruin your perfectly good new crankshaft sensor.

My Grand Cherokee occasionally goes into brain-freeze and forgets how to idle, I once heard from a trustworthy source that the vehicle "remembers" the driving habits of its primary driver. Unhook the battery for a while to clear all the stuff stored in the brain-box. Start and drive aggressively for a while, don't get too carried away. If it works better that means it still likes you.
The sensor in magnetic and is on the waffle disk, aka flywheel, if it comes unglued it can migrate a small bit and mess up driveability. If it moves a lot the car won't run. You can't reglue it, have to replace the wafle plate, loads of fun involving hoists, jacks and profanity.

2001 Jeep grand cherokee motor knock 4.7 motor


First, if the noise is from the upper part of the engine and is more of a tapping than a knock, likely you have a problem in the valvetrain, most often a bad lifter or worn rocker arm. If the noise is low, deep inside, the noise is from a bearing. This is generally accompanied by lower than normal oil pressure. Regardless of the underlying cause, correcting the cause will not stop the knock. To do that correctly, the engine needs to be removed and all crankshaft bearings and the crankshaft itself need to be replaced (crank can sometimes be "undercut" and thicker bearing shells can be used depending upon the amount of wear.) If caught very early, sometimes only one bearing can be replaced in-car, but in 99% of all cases I have ever seen, most will fail again, sometimes more severely if done this way.
