Question about 2001 Jeep Cherokee

2 Answers

I own a 2001 jeep cherokee sport with 76,000 miles. Recently it's decided it doesn't want to stay running. It turns over but won't stay running unless I hold my foot on the gas and keep it revving a bit faster than normal. Sometimes after doing that for 5 minutes it will stay running but often not. We've had carbon build up all cleaned out but wondering where else to turn. Nothing comes up on computer diagnostic. First we thought perhaps it was something along the lines of the cold start valve but it has done it when it's warm now too. Could this be a fuel issue? throttle, idle control? Thank you for any help.

I was having the same problem with my 2001 Jeep Cherokee Sport. After physically checking the fuel injectors, battery voltage, and adding fuel injector cleaner- the solution was to clean the throttle body. The Jeep idles better than it ever has, and no more stalling at red lights. The throttle body gets dirty from the engine gas recirculation. There are hoses that sends post combustion gases and fumes into the intake, I think for emission reason. This post combustion gas and fumes dirties the throttle body and the rest of the intake manifold.

My Jeep has 76,000 miles on it and I was recently told it needs a transfer case flush. Does that sound right?


The Transfer case should be flushed and new fluid added every 30,000 miles, so yes you are overdue.

I own a 1995 Jeep Cherokee Sport 4x4 that has 150,000 miles. I was told it needs a new exhaust manifold. I recently went over a pot hole and now the car sounds very rattlely and loud. Almost as if...


If your going to repair yourself,then yes

I don't know what you need,so get involved,remove the bad parts,then decide on, new or salvage yard, for what you need.

2001 jeep cherokee compression guage at 80


generally it turns outto be one of three things 1. bad sending unit (switch) 2. stuck pressure relief valve in pump (not often) 3. bad gauge head (less than not often)(rare). You can attach a mechanical gauge to the engine and read actual oil pressure (attaches right where sender screws in). That will tell you if the problem is inside the engine or in the gauge system. If it turns out to be inside the engine you can add Marvel oil...many times the problem will clear up in a few days.
Be aware though that very high pressures can cause the oil filter to split or the seal to leak.Most quality filters are tested to about 100psi.(no idea about cheap ones if the test them at all)
