Question about 1995 Jeep Cherokee 2 Door

1 Answer

1995 Jeep Cherokee Sport 4 wheel drive stalls while driving

This sounds crazy but, I have had this Jeep for about 3 years, it is a great vehicle. For the whole time that I have owned it, it has had this problem, but now is much worse. It starts up just great, I drive maybe 4 miles down the road, turn it off. Get back in it to leave, it doesn't start, it turns over very strong, but will not fire. If I try to start it 30 minutes later, it starts up, just in the last couple days, it starts up, then as I am going down the road, it will just shut off and will not start back unless I let it set for approx. 30 minutes. Two weeks ago when it left me stranded in town, I had it towed to a mechanic, he replaced the fuel pump, and the relay in the fuse box under the hood and assured me that was the problem, maybe three days later, it did the same thing. I just don't know what the problem is, please help. I can go out and start it right now, but after I drive it a short distance, it will not start back.
Thank You,
Judy

    Thank You, I will try this. Also can you tell me, could it possibly be a bad fuel pump relay that the mechanic replaced when he replaced my fuel pump? It seems like it is not getting a good connection. When it won't start for me, I remove that relay, put it back in & it is will start for a minute then dies out again, like it is not getting enough fuel.

    Thanks,

    Judy

    I had a mechanic install the CPS, so we will see if that works.

SOURCE: I CHANGE THE ALTERNATOR BUT THE CAR LEAVES ME

Have you changed the battery as the alternator works in conjunction with it. Also go buy a cheap multimeter and with battery in and charge check what fuses are drawing power when off. I would think it is power locks, and aftermarket stereo or power antenna.

Back passenger rear wheel is locked


It sounds more like your rear end has a bad bearing or a bad pinion gear. If it has high miles it may be time for a rebuild. It could be brake related also, take off the back drum and see if anything is rattling around in there or broken. If your not hitting the brakes they shouldn't engage.

2004 jeep grand cherokee overland, 2.7 CRD, half to full lock, left or right, front end juddering and scrubbing tyres off


Sounds like it is in 4 wheel drive mode.
If you have a switch to disconnect the 4 wheel drive it may not be working.
If the vehicle is full time 4 wheel drive or computer controlled 4 wheel drive you have most likely a locked in full 4 wheel drive mode situation.
Not good on dry pavement.

Computer light says service 4 wheel drive switch


According to the mechanic who works on my 94 Jeep it's one of three things:
1) Corrosion on the connector to the switch (which is located on top of the transfer case).
2) A bad switch. Part cost about $22.00 or,
3) A bad console display. he says they have had a fair number of console display units fail.

1995 cherokee sport


Best way to shift from 2 hi into 4 hi or low is to have the vehicle completely stopped, in neutral, and then move the shifter lever. Any other way can damage your transfercase, which sounds like thats what you did. Trans shop.

1998 Jeep Cherokee Sport 4 wheel drive


I also have a 1998 jeep cherokee sport, i was having the same issues so i asked my uncle who is a mechanic.. he told me since the jeep automatically locks the hubs when you put it in 4 wheel drive, sometimes the hub locks get stuck trying to unlock, to solve this when you switch back to 2 wheel drive, reverse like 10 - 15 feet, the wheels spinning the opposite way help unlock the hubs, since i started doing this as soon as i reverse i feel the 4 wheel drive unengage and have not had a problem with it since, give it a try and see if that fixes your problem
