The information for this should be in your owners manual. If you don't have an owners manual I would call a dealership and ask them. Different engines require different maintenance. I personally change mine about every 50,000 miles in my gasoline vehicles.

I am changing the fule filter in the gas tank on my 1998 jeep grand cherokee. auto zone says and sold me 2 filters and i can only see one on the bottom of the pump where does the other one go


I can't remember when they changed the design but the other filter should be in the unit above the top of the pump unit (combination filter & pressure regulator) Unless you have the filter that is in-line which should be in the fuel line near the tank. (pretty sure you don't have that one).

The fuel filter sits on top of the fuel pump. It is the fuel fuel filter/fuel pressure regulator. You will have to drop the gas tank to access it. Hope this helps.

Best of luck

Were is the fuel pump on a 99 jeep grand cherokee, and is it hard to replace?


You will not like my answer.

The fuel pump is inside the gas tank.

You will need to drain the tank and drop the tank to gain access to the fuel pump via the top of the gas tank.

Mark sure your new fuel pump has a new screen/sock filter.

Change filter filter at the same time!

Gas consumption


My Answer:

Poor gas mileage can be a result of many many things.

First of all you need to find out what is the factory normal gas mileage for your model year Jeep SUV. It should have said on your window sticker if you bought it brand new. If you are a 2nd or 3rd owner then a Jeep dealer would have info. Google search will tell you as well, and only takes a couple minutes to find.

I did a quick Google search and for a 2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee with a (4.7L V8 engine) the average mileage is roughly 14 mpg.

Not sure what engine you have as to options, etc?

How you drive will greatly change that number up or down depending on a number of driving and driver variables.

A few being -

Driving habits?

Tire pressures?

Engine tuned up?

Lube & oil/filter changes (every 5,000-7,500 miles? Air filter changes (every 10,000-15,000 miles)? Read your auto manual for exact recommended intervals.

How many people in the SUV on average?

Are you towing anything?

Type gas you are burning - BRAND? (See injectors below)

Area you are driving in (hills and valleys verses flat out,
etc)

Jeeps in general don't have a good track record for great mileage, and rough engine idling is always a clue that your fuel injectors are dirty. Typical on all Jeeps with port fuel injection systems! On Jeeps with dirty fuel injectors your mileage will go way down accordingly. If your not putting at least a 12 oz bottle of say Walmart brand Super Tech Fuel Injector Cleaner (~ $1 each) in your gas tank religiously every logged 1000 miles, or every 2 tank fill ups, then you are just inviting dirty fuel injectors and POOR fuel economy!

My 1993 Ford XPLR with a 4L V-6 engine (and ~ 160,000 flawless driven miles) gets roughly 22 miles per gallon on the highway with cruise control on, and about 17 around town on average. I religiously put a 12 oz bottle of the above injector cleaner in my gas tank every 1000 miles!! Of course I do all my own tune-ups, general repairs, and suspension maintenance (shocks, O2 sensors, trans oil changes, lube & oil/filter changes, code reading and clearing, etc) myself and it shows! I don't trust repair shops except for say Tires and Balancing at SEARS.

Hope that helps ease your mind about gas mileage as it relates to your Jeep there.
