    Mine is doing the same thing. I have replaced everything fuel pump, exhaust manifold, relay switches, and the coil. Still dies (what the hey) ??? So I took it to another mechanic and he tested it with computer. It told him crank shaft sensor. Cost me $200. So far so good. Wish I would have took it to them first and let them test it on the computer. Whew. I hate jeeps now.

1996 jeep larado driving me crazy


Cars are like that. I think they like driving people crazy. I\'ve been driven crazy by my Sentra for three months now.
Has the fuel pressure been checked? I wonder if your fuel pressure regulator has failed (the diaphragm inside will rupture and suck extra gas in through the vacuum hose attached to the regulator-could be the cause of backfiring). Something to check, anyway.

Car backfired,blew ahole in muffler and went dead,but started back up and continues to do it


You say you HAD new coil replaced

So the shop you paid put the problem
in your vehicle?

The other parts don't seem related--unless you
have some reason they were changed

Without the vehicle to test & you saying your doing
you own work --we can't help

I have a 97 jeep cherokee that stalls and backfires and it has backfired to the point where it blew open my muffler. It doesn't backfire all the time, just at times...what can it be?


It's not possible to pinpoint, with just online info, what is causing the backfire, but if it blew your muffler open, the engine is definitely dumping raw fuel into the exhaust. Look into what can cause excessive fuel to be dumped into the exhaust and you may find the cause of your problem.

Every time i put a new muffler on my 1997 jeep grand cherokee the motor bakfires and blows the muffler compleatly apart it dosent do it right away it runs fine for a few miles then boom then it starts to...


What a funny set of events.Of course the tail pipe is clear(you would have checked that)The only other thing it might be is the cat/converter is blocked.New muffler is allowing a heap of air through and it suddenly clears and the bang.They do block up so it may be worth getting it checked.Hope this helps

does your jeep run rough? idle is real low? and when you are driving and push the gas hard it doesnt want to move? if so it is most likely the mass air flow sensor. i had to replace that 2 or 3 times on my 1999 jeep cherokee

1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Stalls out,engine quits running


since its a 1997 your jeep has EFI, electronic fuel injection. The most probable reason for your troubles would be the injectors or a problem with the computer controling them, not allowing enough gas to be pushed into the cylinder causing stalling or lack of power, also too much gas iin the cylinder can lead to back firing and stalling. This would also explain the reason it takes so long to start back up some times, all the excess gas in the cylinder is flooding the motor and u have to wait till the gas disipates till the engine will turn over.

Jeep GCL Backfires Stalls


Aaron, I had the same problem. It is the most expensive part of course the computer. I replaced everything as well till I replaced it. They are remanufactured and have had problems with them as well. I am on my third one now at 200k miles. Oh and by the way it does not show up on the diagnostic check. Good luck
