The engine is either a 5.2L(318cid) or a 5.9L(360cid). These are basically the same engine. Both engines are quite bullet proof. They were built in one form or another, all the way back to th 1960s. They don,t break all that often, provided they are well maintained, and are no more expensive to fix than any other push rod American V8. They are not known however for being great on fuel, but for reliability, at least in my experience, you can't beat them. Just had a customer retire his 98 with a 360, he had 300,000 miles on it, and sold it to someone else who is driving it every day. The only engine repairs we ever performed,were routine maint. and a water pump.

318 ci They don't have the power you are expecting and they are succeptible to coolant leaks. The 4.0 ltr is the way to go for any Jeep. The 4.0 ltr is powerful and very rarely breaks down. I used to work on them for a living and would never purchase a Jeep with a V8

Can use straight synthetic oil in the 1994 Grand Cherokee jeep or what type oil do I use for the V8 motor

You can use a 20w 40 synthetic in there with no problem. With synthetics the numbers on the bottle are almost for decoration as most cover a far wider protection range than they advertise.
Only thing you need to watch is can get expensive replacing higher priced lubricants when they leak out a lot.
If the engine is tight, go for it!.
