Why does 1998 jeep Cherokee not run unless gas tank is at least half full?

2.5L or 4.0L? engine.
ever do a full service on this car , with a fuel filter.
or wrong gas cap, does car run ok cap off? or loose?
ignore cap off DTC errors. EVAP errors when done, ok?
start with basics.
then check fuel pressure, with a 1/4 tank, is it spec pressure with that brand new filter? yes/no.

the filter is part of the top of pump at top of the FP reg. in tank.
that be how its done. no need to guess. at all.
in this case, the pressure test is after, the cap checks.
the wrong cap will have a missing, cap vacuum breaker this cause
the pump to fail (it cant suck in a hard vacuum at all, get a new cap)

FSM spec, a the fuel rail for pump pressure,
Start the vehicle and note the pressure reading at idle which should be 31 psi (214 kPa).

if the car stalls with 31 PSI pressures , its NOT THE PUMP.
easy huh? just one tool and bam ,hard cold diagnostic facts.
the tool can be had for $20

turn key on and listen for fuel pump in the tank, it should go on for a few seconds then turn off. if you cant hear it try to listen at the fill cap when someone else turns the key on. if you cant hear it , check the safety shutdown relay under hood, it shuts down fuel pump and ignition

No heat at idle

radiator coolant level and overflow tank low fill overflow tank to max remove radiator cap top off coolant level, start car and let it warm up for 5 or 10 minutes, if fluid level drops top off radiator with coolant again check for heat output if OK replace cap DONE else have someone increase engine RPMs (around 3500rpm) top off coolant level (there was air in system) replace radiator cap

Yes, it is mounted on top and inside the fuel tank. Look for an access panel above the fuel pump inside the vehicle. If there is none then you will have to remove the fuel tank in order to replace the fuel pump. Make sure to install a new fuel filter if applicable. Before removing the fuel pump, replace the filter, check the fuse, and fuel pump relay. You can hear the pump run for a few seconds after turning on the key without starting the engine. Open the fuel filler door and remove the fuel cap. Have someone turn no the ignition, and listen for the pump. Even if you hear it run that does not mean it is ok. It may be very weak.

Ok i know now that the cap with the main fuel line running down to the pump its just the cap now my fuel pump will now pull out anything im doing wrong? and how low should fuel be? sorry again plse help...

Remove the cap together with the rubber o-ring. The fuel pump sits in a sprung cradle inside the tank. This cradle also needs to be twisted anti-clockwise (about half inch) to unclip it. After twisting, before removing thepump, take note of the direction of the cradle so you ca re-align it when refitting. Be careful, the plastic bits on the cradle tend to become brittle from constant exposure to the fuel. To reinsert the pump just re-align the cradle push down on it a little to make sure it is seated and turn clockwise till you feel it click into place.

Water leak from top of expansion tank.2000 BMW 316i se

The water (coolant) in the expansion tank will rise and fall with the engine temperature. What the expansion tank does is collect and return coolant to and from the engine. When the engine warms up the coolant gets hot, builds up pressure and opens up the radiator cap. The coolant then goes into the expansion tank. Now when the engine cools down the pressure drops in the cooling system and the pressure drop (vacuum) pulls the coolant back into the engine via the radiator cap. The radiator cap allows the cooling system to build up pressure and by doing so increases the boiling point of the coolant, but when that pressure exceeds the caps rating the cap opens and the coolant goes to the expansion valve. The cap has another part to it that when the engine cools down and a partial vacuum is created in the cooling system a "valve" in the radiator cap opens and allows the coolant to be drawn back into the engine. I would look at your radiator cap to see if any gunk or build up is on it, and check the rubber gaskets for cracks. It's easiest just to replace the cap because they are inexpensive and easy to replace (2-10 dollars). The expansion tank should have two hoses on it. The one on the bottom comes from the radiator and the one on the top (possibly part of filler cap) runs down and is open to the ground. That way if it is overfilled or becomes overfilled it will slowly leak onto the ground. When and if you change your radiator cap, make sure the engine is cooled down, remove cap and start engine and turn heater to full blast, full heat. Leave the cap off and let it run until engine warmed up. This should burp out any air pockets that may have happened when coolant was changed. Also top off the coolant in the radiator while it is running. Hope this helps and good luck

Changing fuel pump

Being a 94 truck, you can rest assured the pump is in the tank. As for the pull bed, or drop tank question, it is up to you. I always pull the tank on every vehicle, unless someone has cut an access hole through the top of the body. There are a lot of people with a fuel pump change in their future, because the oil companys have changed the additives they put in the fuel we use, and it eats the seals in the old pumps. (they don't want you to know that) It is a lot easier to change an in tank pump than most people make it out to be. (Ah laziness) Hopefully the tank is low on gas, or empty, or it is gonna be really heavy.
