The caliper assemblies mey be sticking when you apply the brakes. This condition can be cuased by overheated brake fluid. I would have a brake and alignment shop check out the front brakes.

I have a 2001 jeep grand cherokee drive it a while turn the engine off wont start back up

Your starter solenoid armature is sticking. It is mounted atop the starter and the heat from the exhaust manifold sometimes causes this problem on older systems. You can try a temporary fix by placing some type of heat shield over the solenoid using something that is fire proof but replacing the solenoid will eventually be necessary.

1996 grand cherokee-6cyl When making tight turns,

Hi, the likely problem is a worn out CV joint on one of your axles. Check for a torn boot on either axle. Once a toot tears open, dirt gets in and wears out the joint. Please let me know if you have more questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

My power steering went out on my 1997 jeep grand cherokee limited. While trying to get it home the "check guages" light came on, then the battery voltage went way down and the car began to over...

Pretty much sounds as if the drive belt has come off the engine. When that happens, your power steering pump won't turn (hard steering), check gauges or check engine light comes on (because alternator no longer is turning, and engine will overheat (water pump not turning either).
Replace the belt and check all pulleys to make sure none are binding or loose (could be why belt came off other than failure from age...takes a minute to check and avoids problems later)

Jeep grand cherokee stalls after warming up

You need to check components again when the engine is hot and in no-start condition, otherwise, you will get bad info...obviously whichever part is doing this works fine cold. ones that react most to heat are crank pickup, ignition coil and the fuel pump.(bad ones get hot and bind up)

Just changed brake pads and discs on jeep cherokee 2000

You may have a bad caliper or rotor may be too thick(not the right ones). Here is a test to check for binding put car on a flat surface and put vehicle in neutral and try to push vehicle it should roll with a small amount of force if Not it binding. Check calipers and rotor thickness to make sure its correct. If the rotors are the original equipment then it must be a caliper. Good luck and contact if you need more help. Thanks for using FIX YA
