Question about 1998 Jeep Cherokee 4WD
I have a 2.5 td jeep limited , engine is running fine just had the diagnostics test but when towing my caravan which weighs 1200 I struggle to pull up hill , is this normal
Pls see this link, my reply to a post parallel to your concern.
Basically the lower the differential/axle gear ratio the better on the mileage, a little faster but poor pulling power. Most vehicles meant for highway driving would have a lower ratio. I was also made to understand that there are some Jeep versions that have as low as 3.73.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FixYa.

It sounds like your on the right track, the next step is to do a compression test to verify good rings in that particular cylinder.
