Question about 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

When I give it gas it acts as if it can't take it. Almost like it needs a tune up.

When I start the jeep it runs fine, when I pull out and even at road speed it has surges. Sometimes it will be smooth for a mile or two tops, then its acts almost like a miss in the engine. But I have change the plugs, wires, cap, and button. So I do not think it is that. I thought it might be the fuel filter, but can't find it. Maybe the fuel injector, or the screen on the fuel pump. Does anyone have any ideas.

Try the fuel filter, it's right by the tank above the rear differential. It also could be the idle air control on the throttle body. I don't know these are just guesses.

Once my 1999 jeep grand cherokee larado with 4.0 will not take gas and dies out at operating temp


Need to road test with scan tool on it & look at data

Need to confirm the temp issue & what your saying

Need to see fuel pressure & if correct, what it is at 200
when the issues start.

Maybe the egr comes in later & leans it out

Maybe it won't stay in closed loop & that is temp related for sure

Think you need to go for a road test,you drive & shop guy rides
with scanner,have to be part of the solution or they will sell you
spark plugs & call it a tune-up,remember they have been gone for
25 years

Misses and sputters at certain throttle position


This sounds like the same problem I had with my 87 Jeep 2 door Cherokee Sport.
Thought I had to replace the Fuel pump yet when I went under and pulled it out of the side of the tank I found that one of it's vacuum or return line had fallen/poped off. After I pushed the rubber tube line back on it's metal tube and pushed and remounted the pump back in the tank. Started up and it never ran better at any speed. Yea!!!!!

1987 Ecoline van V-8 engine hasn't been started in about 7 years. It ran good before that. What do I have to do first to start it and get it running?


I would change all the fluids and either try dry gas or i would recommend that the gas tank be thoroughly drained and new gas put in the tank.If you have a hard time getting started try to use starter fluid in carburetor or if you have none just use gas. If the vehicle is equipped with fuel injectors locate air filter and follow air duct to engine that is where starter fluid or gasoline will have to be pored to prime the injectors.if it don't start the engine should be tuned up with a major tune up replace all filters ect even if it starts without tune up i would tune it up asap!

Holds idle fine but stalls when accelerating


your carburetor should have a fuel filter in the carburetor body where the
fuel line enters it replace it and, any other in-line fuel filter the engine might have

This may sound crazy but....


I would say the connector may have an issue, either it is not locked into the tank connector or the connector terminals are loose or corroded, also u didn't say if the just the electric pump was replaced or the entire fuel pump module which comes pre wired. By all means I would take it back and have them look at it, they should do this for free is they are not a fly by night shop.
