Question about 1998 Jeep Cherokee

1 Answer

My 98 jeep ran great all winter. Now it's either loosing power or flooding out not sure which but sometimes when its acting up, there is a strong smell of gas. Will be driving at any speed and all of a sudden there is no gas flow I will feather the pedal and nothing until it decides to go and then it may or may not backfire so bad that the last time it blew my exhaust. have a complete tune up and changed the crank sensor which eleminated the problem before winter, seems to run fine in the cold, but as soon as it warms up outside, it acts up. especially in moisture situations above 35 degrees

Will start, but floods out and won't run


wow, great post, (no location stated sadly,you in Nunavut?)
floods, a clear hard piece of evidence. bravo, and helps...
fuel soaked spark plugs.
if tuned up and , compression is 150,psi not 90 x4.
and spark is strong, then and only then is it a fueling problem.

ill assume you read the op guide and used the unflood method/
stated in glove box manual?
no, then use WOT TO START THE ENGINES.
wot, wide open throttle, (yes, right foot to floor)
this act cuts all fuel injections. and must start
if not , no spark.
if the egr is leaking , it will be hard to start, do the 50k service on it.
if the ISC is stuck closed, it will be hard to start and flood (no air)
so use just 10% throttle , acting as sort of a human ISC
start now?
that is just the tip of ice berg.
here is more flooding.
all ways, i think are here

if it acts like you turned the key off where the motor just shuts off without missing and sputturing i would for sure look at changing crankshaft sensor or may be a camshaft sensor if it has one. once sensor looses track of timing computer will shut down motor.

Have you checked to make sure you hooked everything back up and correctly some of these hoses have a airflow sensor in them ? The best bet would be to go over all the hoses check for cracks in them.Have a scan ran on the ECM/PCM to see what codes come up some auto parts stores will run this scan for free.it will tell you if a part is going bad. Hope this helps and good luck

98 jeepwrangler won't start


This is basic, but first off, try to shift it into neutral, and try to start it. It is easy for the linkage to get out of adjustment, where it thinks the jeep is in gear. If that does not work, make sure you have battery power to the ignition and starter.
