Not sure if it will be the same for your model of Jeep but but I had the same problem with my 98 Cherokee. Turned out to be the Crankshaft Position Sensor. Sits on the upper drivers side of the tranny and can block voltage to the fule pump and distributor. Found it by getting a error code reader from AutoZone (free loan) and looking up the error code. Replaced the CPS ($89) and started right up.

How to switch 4 wheel drive back to 2 wheel drive in my 98 Jeep Grand Cherokee


that is because you have Part time 4wd? (what do you have)?
and must not drive on pavement free of ice.

one tire must be on slippery surface. at least.

98 Grand Cherokee Loredo 4X4: When turning the wheel all the way right the back right tire seem to freeze up then lunge grabbing traction. The same happens when the wheel is turned all the way left. ...


Is this a manual 4 wheel drive system that can be shifted into 2 wheel drive? These type of systems should be in 2 wheel drive for tight turns. The drive train locks the differentials to make it 4 wheel drive and with the 4x4 engaged it creates this lunge grabbing effect.

How to shift a 1998 jeep grand cherokee into 4 wheel drive


Four low is almost never used. I use it on very steep rocky or muddy trails in the woods or to pull someone out of mud or a ditch. Though some will shift standing still it is best do do this while rolling. Four high can be shifted at low speeds of 2 to about 35mph (higher also but not really good idea) Low can only be shifted between 2 to 10mph. If you find yourself stuck and unable to shift because you aren't rolling you can also turn the engine off, engage the transfer case and re-start. That avoids having the gears clashing together. Best rule is if it begins to grind, don't force it.

Runs rough on acceleration and surges when removing foot from accelerator. Also, has poor gas mileage. The vehicle is a 1998 Grand Cherokee with 5.2, automatic with four wheel drive.


This sounds like one of two things. Depending heavily on your vehicles milage, you could need a new EGR valve or a new timing chain/belt. Thank you, Dana
