If you worried about your gas, put in a bottle of sta-bil or ISOheat. This will remove all water and condensation from the gas. I would also replace your fuel filter, spark plugs and WIRES. Check for any vacuum hose leaks, if needed do compression test to verify that your gaskets aren't leaking.

If you have service/check engine light on, have a diagnostic test done to pinpoint the bad sensor or circuit that is setting it off.

Rough idling


When my Grand Cherokee was having similar rough idling problems, I replaced all the plugs and replaced all the ignition and spark plug wires. I also put in half bottle of fuel injector cleaner in gas tank (full, as recommended). I had both immediate improvement in power, smoother idling and my gas mileage went up 2mpg (approx).

Leaking brown substance from the engine,see it on the garagefloor


Doing anything with the pedal while starting changes the air fuel ratio, on older cars, that would add fuel. On injected cars it leans out the mixture on a cold start. Therefore it's possible that one or more injectors are leaking fuel into the engine when the engine isn't running. Once the extra fuel has been burned off the engine will run smoother. I'd check the air filter to make sure it's not packed with dirt on the underside, If it's clean, then either have a fuel system leakdown test done or if you have the proper pressure gauge, do that yourself.

My 1997 Jeep grand cherokee is running real rough when I accelerate. Now while driving it it keeps stopping but will start right back up? help???


check the cables of the spark plugs, some times it occurs that the cables get loose from its plastic retainers and touch any metal in the engine, causing missfire of the related spark plug, hence rough running of the engine. Put all cables on the retainers making sure none touches the bare metal of the engine. That should help.

1998 jeep grand cherokee, with 4.0 6 engine will run fine most of the time. then it will be hard to start, miss, and die. then when it will start will run rough, die, and then it run fine for a while. i...


OK...if someone gives me a bad rating on this, I'll be really annoyed...
saw off the "fixed" hold-down on the distributor and use a chevrolet smallblock hold-down. Once re-installed turn distributor ccw about 1/4" or slightly more. If I'm correct, engine should run fine after that.
