Question about 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

I have a 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 5.2 v8. Engine was lugging check engine light came on as engine quit. Pulled over turned off the key and it restarted and ran fine. Went to Auto ZOne they said speed sensor fault of speed greater than 15 mph and trans speed less than 60 rpm. Car ran fine for two days but resetting check engine light by disconnecting battery is no help as check engine light comes back on as soon as speed comes up to 15-20mph. Today it would not shift out of first but turning key off and restarting ran fine for 20 miles to home. I think I need to replace speed sensor. Is there anything else it could be?

Hello there, One of the problems Jeeps do have is Transmissions. It is very typical of the sensors and solonoid packs to go bad, Also Jeeps as well have well know problems with the computer causing transmission issues as well.

I suggest taking it to a shop other than a parts store they are great for basic info but a repair shop can actually look at what each sensor is doing in real time.

You are on the right track and I would most definetly address this asap rather than causing internal transmission problems.

Good luck and I hope this helps.

Will not start alot of turning over then you here fuel going through then it starts 93 jeep cherokee limited 5.0 v8


Your main ECU is in need of repair. Your jeep is displaying signs of the common delayed start problem. The check engine light does not light up, for a while, then when it finally does, the fuel pump gets power and it starts. Have your ecu repaired.

Having trouble with 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited not starting when the key is turned. It clicks but does not fire. It takes several tries to get the engine to start.


Three items to check there. Make sure the battery terminals are clean and secure, check the starter relay (quick way is to steal another in the power center and switch them). Also check the engine grounds and that the starter solenoid is engaging. If you have power at the small terminal on the starter when the key is turned to start, good bet the starter is bad.

2001 jeep Grand Cherokee fuel injectors


check the injectors on that bank for pulses.. a regular 12v text light will do it should flash when cranking... its very possible that the crank sensor or camshaft sensor on the replacement engine is bad and giving you all the problems you have now.. are you using the original injectors? if you have injector pulses then check the coil for pulses the same way.. btw make sure you have 12v to them even before cranking engine could be a bad asd relay..wet plugs on one bank would also indicate a possible leaking injector and basicly draing the fuel starving the oposite bank for fuel.. to verify that the rail must be lifted by removing all 4 bolts make sure the clips hold the injectors firmly and turn the key to run but dont crank it then look for fuel leakin from bottom of injector(s) any drips is a bad injector..
