Hi,

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.

HYUNDAI MATRIX GSI TD WONT START FROM THE KEY, BUT WILL START AND RUNS FINE IF YOU TOW IT A FEW FEET


Maybe your system voltage while cranking is dropping below a certain threshold that your ignition system requires to both spin the starter motor and run other critical system components. Assuming this is the diesel model, you may benefit from measuring voltage while cranking or attempt a jump start (get reserve power from another vehicle that has the same system voltage as yours). The fact that a bump start works, and normal start will not leads to this advice. Good luck.

MY 2005 Jeep grand \cherokee limited has been


the reason the oil light and power steering are on and gone is that the engine stalled out,which means no oil pressure,and without the engine running you have no power steering.when you say dealer do mean a jeep dealer?
if no current codes were in the computer, did they go into the history of codes to see if anything was there?
if it is a soft code which is one that will reset it's self when you cycle the key off to on,they won't find a current code if you pull over and turn the key off.May be you could let one of the mechanics drive it home 1 night and return it in the morning,that way he can drive it with the scan tool hooked up,you will have to be aware of what speeds you were doing,was you at a red light,going up hill,using the brake,you need him to know exactly what you were doing so he can drive the same way to duplicate the problem.
also have them check any TBS's for this problem,
Technical Service Bulletins, from Chrysler and Jeep .

Engine cuts out


When it quits & won't restart, If you pull air intake hose of at throttle body & spray 2 or 3 seconds of WD-40 (like quick start) inside the throttle body with plate pushed open, then try to start & if it kicks over or fires up for a second or 2 then dies, you'll know it's a fuel related problem, then you can take a good look at rest of fuel system for problems like relay or pump.

That is 1.4 metric tons, that is allot of weight, that is the problem, not the trans type, you are really pushing the limits of the SUV's tow capacity. Careful or you will burn up the transmission.
