Sounds like a weak fuel pump so i would check the fuel pressure first.If its not within the specs replace the pump.

Engine missing out, spitting and sputtering


the problem you describe indicates a air/fuel ratio problem so I would be looking at any hoses that may have perished, MAP/MAF sensors and coil problems. If it is possible then get a fault code reading as it will save money from "guess" repairing

Car idles ok , put car in drive it wants to die


Could be fuel or ignition. When is the last time you changed the fuel filter? I would start with a fuel pressure test.

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,
Broken Arrow, OK

Ok odds are you just need a routine tune up. Plugs, fuel filter, air filter. Now this engine uses coil packs i think, so you wont have normal plug wires. The coil packs are individual and sit directly on the plugs. So it is possible you have a bad coil pack. These engines were known to have this problem in excess. So try the cheap fixes first. plugs, fuel filter...these two is the best two to try first.. The air filter wont cause a bad miss unless it is completely dobbed up. so just for your own good to change the air filter.Now if neither the plugs or fuel filter fixes this car try this. Each coil pack will have an individual plug on top of them. So listen closely to your engine. Unplug each coil pack one at a time, Now evry time you unhook a plug the engine should miss, so unplug one at a time, and if the engine does miss they are working properly. Now if you unhook one of these and there is no change in the idle of your engine, my friend you have found the problem. All you have to do if you find one that does not change the engine idle, you just go buy a coil pack and replace it. This should fix you right up
