Question about 1997 Jeep Cherokee Country

1 Answer

Jeep Cherokee 97 Country

Hello: I have about 148K on my country model. For the past several years(about 3 or so), after I drive in hot weather with the AC on, when I come to a stop, whether it is stop and go in heavy trafiic, or to a stop to park the car, the tachometer will start "reving" lower...below 400, and then stall out.

I have taken the car to several dealers, and they have yet to find the problem. Now the car has to be run for some time first..my last count was about ~45 miles before the symptom occurs. The dealers have said it may be this or it may be that, and my last service was a replacement of the transmission valve body core ($~2000), and carbon cleaning of throttle.

Needless to say, the very next day, the car stalled out again. Mind you, this happens every time I use the AC in really hot weather...KINDA IRONIC SINCE THAT IS WHEN I NEED THE AC THE MOST.

When this occurs, I have to turn AC off, and run the car for awhile before the stalling situation is alleviated. By this time, I have lost about 10lbs in perspiration weight.

The car has been very well maintained.

ANY SUGGESTIONS, EXPERIENCES, ETC., THAT MAKE SENSE WOULD BE A GODSEND..

My guess would be the throttle position sensor.

My 97 Jeep Cherokee Country 4 cylinder is overheating after about 8-10 minutes of being on. It is not leaking coolant. Is this the thermostat? Is it the sensor? Is it the water pump? Engine does...

Car shuts off while driving


Jeep models known for bad crank shaft position sensors. Check for spark when condition occurs, if no spark chances very good for a bad sensor.

thers only one problem with replacing a computer on a newer model vehicle and that is when you get a computer sometimes you have to "flash" the computer to put in your vin numkber and other things. If you don't your vehicle won't start or it will start and immediately die. The only place I know of that can flash computers in the dealer. A computer for your vehicle is about $900 from the dealer and then you have to pay to have it flashed. Hope this helps.
