Question about 1999 Jeep Cherokee

1 Answer

98 Jeep Cherokee Laredo 4X2 suddenly dies .....

I am having problems w/ my 98 Jeep . One morning I drove my Jeep a distance of 5 miles and went into a store for about 15 minutes . When I went to start it up it would just crank as if there was no fuel . I had a 1/4 tank . Waited about and hour and it started and I drove back home , but about a block away from my home it felt as if I was running out of fuel . I replaced the fuel pump . Went to start it and battery was dead . I jumped the battery and got it running , went a filled up the tank and came back home with no problems until the next morning . Started fine drove it about 15 miles and got to work but it did stall once and I was able to restart without a jump . Jeep sat for about 7 hours , on my way home , it stalled out with no warning (as if losing electrical power) . This time I waited 3 hours , restarted it by jumping battery and got it almost home and it stalled again with no warning and battery is completely dead again . Not sure what the problem is . Help please .

It sounds like you have some **** in the gas tank that is being drawn to the pickup blocking it.
Have seen this and because it seems so random, it can drive ya nuts.

You might carry a coffee can with you and pull the line from the fuel rail when this happens stick it in the can and just have someone turn the key on for a few seconds.
Beware though, it comes out with force.

Also possible is a failed fuel pressure regulator.
Those aren't expensive and . . . well, not very good either.

I have a 99 jeep grand cherokee laredo 4.0 drove 20 miles went in store came out it acted as if it wanted to turn over then acted as if battery died. i got a jump start but the car then did not try to turn...



If the starter dims the lights noticeably when activated the starter is the culprit. If it got stuck and ran with the engine the bearing will cease and the starter will not turn. Dry bendix and or bearings will prevent starter to swing. If the rotor is touching the field coils it will short and will not turn.

I have a 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4x4 with the 4.0L. It has approximately 150k miles on it. I started the Jeep with 1/4 tank of fuel in it and it started rough and acted like it was going to die....


long post.
ill reduce it for you.
misfires. (is RPM below 700 then misfire can be normal) for idle speed controls dead.
ISC the isc controls speed, of idle,.
mine stuck like zillion times, in 400k miles. endless.sticking
mine was a tiny gutless stepper motor drive ISC valve.
the cone valve is side gets nasty and sticks (
(PCV gases caused as seen on all engines)
i clean it.
the proof is the easy press of right foot easy raises idle back to 700rpm and engine stops misfiring.
ever get a tuneup this decade or running spark parts 500,0000 miles
for the new world record.?


now the tricky part of ISC, , fully explained in the SM serv. man.
the PCM learns its behaviors.
it learns all hot start settings and cold
so when you key on, it goes to the correct HISTORICAL spot.
if it can move there(sticks) engine car race.
or run too slow,
cold start would be worse, as hot isc is more closed
so if sticks there closed, the next cold start will be horrid
some newer manuals telly you to add 5% throttle if car is hard starting this is so common.

clean it. end story.

Air temp and humidity level can change mpg calculation two tenths. BUT, that does not account for the huge disparity in your numbers. You may have something wrong with the trip calculator or, there may be a leak somewhere. Have your codes scanned. MPG can drop suddenly if an O2 sensor fails.

1994 jeep grand cherokee laredo starting problems


Check to see if the fuel pump is running after it shuts down...could be a relay or the pump itself (overheating internally) Checked the fuel filter yet? Some crank sensors need to be shimmed. If it's too close to the flywheel even though you recently changed it, if it's too close to the wheel it can fail again. May not be the case but worth checking over. Also check the ceramic resistor on the left fender near the master cylinder if you have one. That too can cause problems.
