Question about 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

Engine dies numerous times a day.

I have a 1996 Jeep grand cherokee laredo 4.0L. I have been having a problem with it either dying while stopped or spitting and sputtering while driving. I have replaced the pcm, crankshaft position sensor, ignition coil, new plugs, distributor cap and rotor, new plug wires, new distributor housing, new fuel pump and filter, and many other small things. It acts as though it has bad gas. It will start sputtering and eventually take s its last breath and die. I wait about 30 seconds and start it back up and it will run fine most times. Every now and then it will backfire and die. I am running out of options on what it could be. Could someone please help me diagnose the problem please??

    Sounds a whole lot like a bad timing chain

Have you thought about it possibly being the engine that has something wrong with it? Have you checked the cylinders?

Why would my 1996 jeep grand cherokee laredo strat and run for 5 to 10 mins the stall and die out


this can be caused by many things, the most common is the crank sensor. have the computer scanned for any stored codes, if there are codes they will help you in finding problem also hook fuel preasure gauge to it and see if it looses preasure when it dies it could be a bad fuelpump. i would start with these tests first.hope this helps.

1995 Jeep grand cherokee is missing while running. When it is under a heavy load (driving fast) it runs fine. When idleing and slow driving it spits and sputters.


I have the same problem on my 95 grand cherokee laredo. Sometimes it starts out fine and after about 10 miles it starts spitting and sputtering. Then after a while it seems to clean out and run fine again for a little while. Then other times it starts out spitting and sputtering at the begining. I changed the fuel filter and that was not it. It is a 4.0L 6cyc. Any Ideas?

Thanks,

95 jgc laredo spitting and sputtering , will not idle dies


You may want to check the Idle Air Control Valve (IAC). It is located on the back of the throttle body and very easy to change. You may have some luck just cleaning to see if it makes a difference and then you can buy a new one.
