Question about Jeep Cherokee

1 Answer

88 Cherokee 4.0: ran good when I parked it 3 months ago because of a failed clutch slave cylinder. When I tried to start it two months ago, it started briefly, then quit and won't re-start. Checked for spark, I've got spark. Checked cps for correct ohm reading, ECU connector at firewall for clean contacts, various vacuum lines, plug wires are new, plugs are new, coil is new. Fuel issues? Other ideas?

I would think your fuel pump needs to be replaced. Change the fuel pump and fuel filter and then run some fuel system cleaner through the gas tank.

Consult your vehicle's owner's manual for the location of the test port. Attach the end of the pressure gauge into the port indicated. Each vehicle is different as to the location, so make sure to check your manual first.

  • Step 2 Turn the key in the ignition and monitor the gauge. Write down the number of the pressure while the car is running.
  • Step 3 Check the pressure against what is specified in your manual. Generally, a vehicle needs between 30 and 80 psi in order to run smoothly, but your vehicle may be different. If you pressure matches what is the manual, then your fuel pump88 Cherokee 4.0:  ran - 2.gif is working correctly.
  • Step 4 If your pressure is high, then you will know that the fuel pump is running richly, which can lead to poor mileage or black smoke. It is probably time for a new fuel pump.
  • Step 5 If your pressure is too low, that means your fuel pump is a clogged filter. Have it replaced or you could be faced with poor engine performance.

    Clutch on 8N ford need help have and 8N ford tractor can not get in gear.park it 9 months ago was working fine when parked push pedel nothing happens

    Please check and see if there is a steel brake line from the clutch pedal to the transmission, because I think you might have a "hydraulic" clutch.
    This means there is a master cylinder near the clutch pedal and a "slave cylinder" mounted on or near the transmission.
    Over time, the slave cylinder can fail, and the tractor will no longer shift for you because the pedal will not release the clutch.
    The slave cylinder would need replacement or rebuilt.
    God bless your efforts.

    My clutch wont go into any gear unless i force it.. And it grinds on going in reverse. is it the master/slave cylinder the problem. or the clutch? please help!!!

    Hopefully you got a warranty with the clutch job, so I would take it back to that shop first. If you have someone else work on the truck the first shop is off the hook for responsibility. Its possible the clutch has failed, or you have developed a new problem.

    Holden rodeo ran out of clutch fluid, bled it through and will not disengage, when running and try to move theres a slight pressure loss feeling and will not move.

    No leaking? I don't know, but possibly your clutch master cylinder may be failing with an internal leak that doesn't allow pressure to build up at the slave cylinder. Or maybe the slave cylinder itself is bad.
    Good luck.

    I have over 2" of clutch pedal free travel in my 88 chevy 3/4 ton. I have tried bleeding the slave cylinder several differant ways but this doesnt change the free travel distance. what am i overlooking?

    You could have a weak slave cylinder, or the fingers on the pressure plate may be worn out. If this is the original clutch I would probably say that is about worn out and the clutch fork is at the end of it's travel and can not be adjust out any further.
    On some slave cylinder end you can find that the end of the slave rod had a adjustment ball that can be screwed out to help decrease free play. You might look and see if your slave has an adjustable rod, if not you are going to likely going to have to replace either the slave or the clutch.

    Clutch pressure plate might be coming apart but be sure to check the clutch pedal pivot and mounts. I've seen firewalls break and cause this problem.

    '88 4runner shift problem

    You say you added gear lube. Where did you add the gear lube, to the differential? Because if you added gear lube to your master cylinder for the clutch, I think we found your problem. It calls for brake fluid.

    Sounds like air has gotten into the hydraulic clutch system, or it is low on fluid from a failed master or slave hydraulic clutch cylinder or connecting line between the master and slave cylinders.
