Question about 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

My daughter's 1998 jeep grand cherokee dies occasionally. We took it to dealer and after a thousand dollars worth of work they could not find any issues that cause this to happen. it lost poser again on the way home that day. We took it back and they drove it and it did not happen to them. She has ran it out of gas a couple times. Thinking it has something to do with that?

The most common reason for the symptom you list is the crank sensor and the CAM sensor in the distributor

1999 jeep grand cherokee limited warped rotors

  • Simply put, dealers are not always the most honest. Warped rotors is a very serious event. They warped from heat and a fair amount of it at that. The issues causing this should have been immediately addressed.

  • Lathing them down is a ridiculous concept in this case. They should have sent those rotors off for a quality inspection and the issue fixed as well as your rotors replaced. Perhaps at a cost but they were grossly negligent putting lives at risk. I would consider filing a complaint and never use them again.

Any place that sells them will tell you - please - take the vin number down - year make and model and go to Advance Auto or some other retail shop and simply ask them - there is no charge and their books are best used with the vin number - while your doing this - call the local Jeep dealer and ask about any recalls on your vehicle - it can save you thousands of dollars.

1998 jeep cherokee runs but dies at stoplight but starts back up doesn't do it often

I had the same thing happen to my Jeep Cherokee. For me the answer was that I had disconnected the air filter to work on the power steering pump and I forgot to reconnect it. When I did, the stalling at stoplights went away.

Hi dear

Converting to a 4 wheel drive  will take several thousands of dollars in parts and several more thousands in labor.  It requires a front axle and driveshaft transfer case, transmission, new electonics in some cases, drilling of holes thru the floor.  Converting a 2wd to a 4 wd is almost unheard of because of the cost involved.  If you really need a 4 wd, sell the Jeep and get a 4wd Jeep. Sorry if this is bad news
