Question about 1989 Jeep Cherokee

1 Answer

Turns down on high speed

I have a problem with this Jeep Cherokee 4.0 1989
When it reaches 50mph the enginge shuts down and i have to turn it again while it's rolling.
Also after a long run if I turn the car off and i turn it on after an hour, the engine stops while on the road just some minutes after.
I changed the gas filter, air filter and sparks. The problem persists.

When i reach speed of 40-50mph my 1996 jeep grand cherokee starts shaking really bad. its definetly a engine thing not an alinment problem


If the shaking comes from the engine, then it may be missing due to an ignition or fuel injection problem.
If the car shakes a lot in the steering wheel or shimmies, then it may be due to underinflated tires or bad tires that need to be replaced.

My 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo. 5.2L. It sometimes wont shift from first gear to second gear. If and when it does it will keep shifting as it should until you shut it off. Then it may or may not do it...


I had a similar problem for months with my 98 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4.0L. Mine used to take a long time to shift and usually wouldn't shift until speeds got up to about 50mph or so for about a mile and a half then would work good afterwards until I shut it off and allow it to sit for a few hours then I would have a repeat of the same problem. I was about to replace a relay in the tranny when someone suggested that I replace the fluid and filter. I took it to Quick lube shop and had the filter and fluid replaced. Still running like a charm going on five months now.

Cruising rpm even after the OD has engaged has a lot to do with the differential gear ratio and tire size.
There will always be a variation between different vehichles due to that alone.
To see if the OD is working, at about 50mph, lightly touch the brake pedal. If the rpms increase for a moment then the OD was engaged. (touching the pedal momentarily disengages it...good thing to know when hill climbing!

Air/fan/heat only works on high in 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee, or it will start again if I open and slam shut my glove compartment.


Check the blower motor speed dropping resistor pack and it's connections. It is located in the ducting airflow of the blower motor.

The vehicle shuts off if you drive 50mph or faster


I would be checking the fuel pump.
Probably an in tank type that also has the fuel gauge sender float attached .Get it tested just in case it is not the pump but the wiring to the pump.
I would also replace the fuel filter to be on the safe side.
Hope this helps

Intermittent High Speed Wobble around 50 mph


Have an alignment place check your idler arms & steering links, and tie rods for play, as well as the rest of the front end. that's a dangerous thing to fool around with.
