Question about 1998 Jeep Cherokee

Stalls out when stopped for red lights stop signs, and also when you are slowing down. Sometimes won't start back again when it does stall until you crank it several times, then you smell gas and black smoke comes out of exhaust.

You have a bad fule pressure regulator to check to see if this is the problem look on your fule rail and you will see a round piece that has a vaccume line on it start car and un plug the line if gas is comming out of the regulator its bad. it floods the motor with gas it drives ok because you are hitting the gas and it allows more air in to compensate for the xtra fule, but once you let off gas its flooding out. Thats why you smell it and all the black smoke. hope this helps.

When was last tune up? Plugs, wires, all fluids & filters -especially fuel filter? I'd start there and run a good fuel system cleaner through it. It'll give you a good "ground zero" reliability point.

My car keeps stalling everytime I stop or slow down but starts up straight away after it has stalled?


The vacuum hoses have probably started cracking at the turns. If there has been any under the hood work done, sometimes things get pushed on or moved and the rubber hoses on the vacuum system will get old and crusty and crack. That cause the car to die when it slows down to an idle, like at a stop sign or stop light. then it starts and runs normal until the next stop sign.

If you have the foot on the brake when stopping and it stalls , try slowing down and stopping on the hand brake to see if the engine stalls . If it doesn't stall on the hand brake then I would suspect a leak in the brake booster that is affecting the engine by letting air into the manifold through the activated booster. If there is no difference have the fault codes read as there may be a missing/ faulty vacuum line connected to a actuator in the gear box.

Sometimes the intake manifold gets carbon in it from a bad egr valve. You may need to pull the EGR and see if you cant clean it a little.

Don't stop at red lights and stop signs...

How many miles are on the engine? When was your last tune up? If it's been a while then I would start by changing the fuel filter, air filter, pcv valve, oil change, etc.

1995 940 wagon...stalls...ideas/help...please?


Could be several things; MAF ( Mass air Flow) sensor, (Yes you should have one), could be fuel pump on the rail or the filter next to it, could be electronic idle controler, clogged injectors, ect ect, a Volvo dealer can do some simple checks of the actual components and tell you, but have someone else fix it!
