An old, unanswered request - if you have found the problem, tell us the results and it will be in the database for others.
No idea on the speedometer problem but if you are adding coolant too often and haven't found the leak, you may have a blown headgasket. Check your oil for any sign of water contamination; it will cause the oil in severe cases to look like hand lotion. Check your coolant reservoir for any odor of exhaust fumes. Checking your plugs for any signs of rust is also a good idea.
Keep a close eye on your water temperature until you find the leak because if there is a path between the coolant passages and a cylinder, it will blow hot gases into the water without any sign of the engine missing or misfiring (at first) while running and will **** coolant into a cylinder when the engine is off and it cools down.

1997 jeep grand Cherokee dies while driving.Somtime starts right up,somtime not.Changed air filter,spark plugs,wires,d-cap, ignition coil,map sensor and computer.Latley I've noticed that I'm not getting...


If the ignition turns on and dies while driving, you might have a clogged idle air control valve. The valve is located in the throtle body, just below the air intake hose. Locate the idle air control valve, un plug the connector, unscrew it (you will need star screw driver) and next clean it using an electronic contact cleaner spray, I use 3M for that. Next, make sure all cleaning liquid inside is gone (it evaporates quickly) and re assemble it. This should solve your problem once for all.

1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Stalls out,engine quits running


since its a 1997 your jeep has EFI, electronic fuel injection. The most probable reason for your troubles would be the injectors or a problem with the computer controling them, not allowing enough gas to be pushed into the cylinder causing stalling or lack of power, also too much gas iin the cylinder can lead to back firing and stalling. This would also explain the reason it takes so long to start back up some times, all the excess gas in the cylinder is flooding the motor and u have to wait till the gas disipates till the engine will turn over.

OD light on 97 Jeep comes on when it's cold outside


Calvin...... You need to treat your Jeep to a new THERMOSTAT. The Overdrive is connected to the engine coolant temperature and if the engine is n ot warmed up properly, the Overdrive will not engage. Try to get a thermostat from the Jeep dealer so you will have exactly the right one, some of the cheapoie ones will not work right. Dave in Iowa
