Question about 1997 Jeep Cherokee

1 Answer

I have a 1999 Jeep cherokee Classic. My wife is the only one who has had problems with it. She says when she drives it she will be driving down the road and the engine will stop running. Its not electrical because the radio and A/C still work. The check engine light comes on when the car dies. After the car comes to a stop she turns the ignition and starts the car back up and the check engine light goes off again. Any suggestions?

SOURCE: electric fan on my 1999 jeep cherokee classic wont

the relay is maybe sticking.
or there is a call for cooling when the engine is off.

if the fan turns off after a min or two then its ok.

if the fan stays on and will not trun off ever even after 30 mins then the relay is staying on and needs to be taken out and replaced.

1999 jeep grand cherokee laredo just stops while driving


Does it stall at idle or going down the highway? Does it restart right away? How long since a tune-up? Are there any applicable trouble codes? Check the cam and crank sensor. Could be other issues?

Sometimes the oil drive housing can cause a sync problem between the crank and cam sensors?

I have a 1999 grand jeep it cut off when im


I just had this problem on my 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Once the engine got warm, after about 15 to 20 minutes, the car would just die at random times, sometimes when doing 40 mph and sometimes at idle.

I ended up changing the Crankshaft Position Sensor and it cleared the issue.

I have a 1999 jeep cherokee that has intermitant transmission problems 1)shifting up it wind out to 2k-3k before shifting 2) at higher speed it feels as if it slips out of overdrive rpm increase but speed...


It will shift out of overdrive upon increasing throttle , pulling hills and so on. Your overdrive probably kicks in around 35 to 45mph and kicks back out as you increase throttle. Electrically controled speed sensor to control the response. Overwise the engine would bog down to a stall. Over drive is just that. It changes the gearing ratio to over drive meaning less then final gear 4 to 1 down to 4 to 3 etc more direct drive ratio to lessen consumtion of fuel with less stress on engine. Have shift speed sensor adjusted. Don't drive in overdrive in city if most driving is under 45mph
