That means that you have a current problem with the car, the best solution is having someone plug a scanner.

1993 Grand Cherokee won't stay running or turn over


Sounds like a clogged fuel filter to me, maybe look into the TPS: throttle positioning sensor. Good luck

I have a 1993 jeep grand cherokee laredo with the 5.2 and the motor will buck or surge at around 1500 rpm. is this a misfire or something else


Sounds like something else. It could be a bad throttle position sensor. It can be checked by a mechanic with a meter.

Where is the throttle positions sensor located


The Throttle Position Sensor, or TPS is connected to the throttle shaft on the throttle body.

Fig. 2: Disengage the Throttle Position Sensor (TPS) wiring harness connector

According with the Grand Cherokee Repair Manual, check this removal & installation procedure...
(see Figures 5 and 6)
  1. Remove the air intake tube at the throttle body.
  2. Disengage the TPS wiring connector and remove the two mounting screws.
  3. Carefully remove the TPS from the throttle body.
To install:
  1. The throttle shaft end has a tang that can be fitted into the TPS two different ways. Only one of the installed positions is correct. When correctly positioned, the TPS can be rotated a few degrees. To determine correct positioning, place the TPS onto the throttle body with the throttle shaft tang on one side of the TPS socket. Verify that the TPS can be rotated. If the TPS cannot be rotated, place the TPS on the throttle body with the throttle shaft tang on the other side.
  2. Tighten the two TPS mounting bolts to 60 inch lbs. (7 Nm) and engage the wiring connector.
  3. Manually operate the throttle and check for any binding.
  4. Install the air intake tube.

My 1993 jeep 4.0 runs bad when it gets warmed up


It is either your throttle positioning sensor (most likely) or your pre-cat o-2 sensor. But most likely your throttle body which only costs like 50-60 dollars i think.

Hi, Why on the newer 06-08 grand cherokee limited with the Hemi, Quadra Drive II, does it take until about 65 MPH for it to go into overdrive or 5th gear?


how high does it rev before it goes into 5th gear? if it's not too high, could just be a long gear, and completely normal, or otherwise you may have a bur on your shift valve causing it to not want to shift normally. for that case you have to pull the trans and grind the bur off, or if it's under warranty fight with the dealership until they agree to.
