Question about 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

It will crank and run then begin to slow down and then eventually cut off and will not crank again. It has been put on a diagnostic machine and they say everything is fine. They have tested the alternator and starter and it is neither one. What do you think it is? Could it be the computer?

It depends what type of diagnostic machine it was. Some are for computerized controled engines and some are not. If it was a computerized controlled machine it will mention if the computer is failing

Not step on the accelerator of vehicle automatic speed


Automatic vehicle at the beginning will automatically forward, but the speed is not too fast, because the automatic mechanism principle, high running loose throttle speed decreased than manual slow some, is a normal phenomenon. use gna 600 to diagnostic If the initial automatic acceleration, speed has a problem, the problem generally appear in the idle adjustment problems, such as: solar term door fault, the intake system leakage phenomenon, cause idle setting, you can go to your car repair station for inspection repair, in order to accurately determine fault.

Car cut off while driving


Hi,
Bad news....if you ran low on oil, the car likely sustained engine damage and will need major engine repair/replacement.

A mechanic can determine the exact issue.

Car cut out while driving lose power


hmmmm tough one without putting it on a diagnostic machine, I would suspect the crank sensor or the distributer issues not sure of the year of your car, whether it is carby or efi, if carby model, then possible blocked jets, {recon it}, i would get it on a diagnostic reader to be more accurate, hope this helps a bit. Good luck.

I was driving my 2004 Nissan Maxima on the highway, when I came to my exit & a stop light when my car began to ****, and flash the service engine light. It felt like it was going to cut off any minute....


I think you'd be well advised to have the electrical charging system checked. Also check out the negitive connections from the battery to the body....Check all ground connections, and the alternator for output....If you have a digital meter you can do that yourself by placing the positive probe to that side of the battery and the neg to the other....Battery voltage should be around 12.5 with afully charged battery....Once the engine runs you should get an alternator output measured the same way of about 13.5volts. If the engine check light came on you get a scan to be on the safe side....I suspect a bad electrical connection....Best of luck Johngee

I have a 97 grand am gt with 3.1 idles fine but normal acceleration and cruise is nearly impossible. Bogs down at all speeds. Hard acceleration is fine goes good.


I had the same problem with my 89 grand am it was caused by a faulty crank position sensor. Initially it would cut out when accelerating and eventually wouldn't start at all, replaced the sensor runs great again.

F250 7.3 liter loss of power during driving


Sounds to me like a fuel filter/water seperator issue, not enough fuel pressure at higher speeds due to the restriction of fuel but runs when engine is slowed down or idling. Also there is a recall of the 07S57cam position(CMP) sensor that Ford will replace for free! I hope this helps...
