It's your fuel sending unit inside the gas tank.

Inside the gas tank is the fuel sending unit. It is a floating device that is held on rails and it slides up and down depending on gas level and then sends a signal to the gas gauge. Either the float is leaky or it is stuck. The down side is you have to pull out the tank, then use brass punch and knock the ring counter-clockwise until it becomes loose. Then pull out and change the sending unit. Do make sure negative battery cable is disconnected and wiring harness and fuel lines are disconnected before pulling the tank.

Why does it act as though stuck in park?


It sounds like the parking brake cable had jammed and possibly broke. I would lift the rear of the vehicle in the air and try rotating a tire. If it does not move at all the brakes are locked and need to replace emergency brake cable.

I have a 1996 Jeep Cherokee Country that started acting as if it were going to stall (almost like it was running out of gas) about a week ago. I changed the fuel filter and added a bottle of gumout fuel...


It appears that the fuel pump might be going bad. To eliminate this possible cause, have the pump output pressure tested by a mechanic. It is located in the tank. The pressure test can be done in about 1/2 hour at a good garage.The fuel pump replacement, a four hour job, costs ~$500.00.

Engine works, but my car won't move when I give it gas.


Could be your clutch or the cable from the shifter has a plastic piece that is easily broken that wont allow proper gear placement

Hesitating to go in drive. it goes, but slow. It is acting as it is not getting gas when I am giving it gas


If the engine just revs up and vehicle does not move much check transmission fluid. If low add some asap. If it is full and dark in color the transmission is or has failed.

Sounds like a blower motor problem. Check for obstructions around the squirrel cage, or a broken cage.
