Overhaul of the top in of 2003 jeep 4.7. It had jumped time, broke a valve spring and bent a valve. After the overhaul oil pressure at idle drops to 0 after the engine warms up. No engine noise what so ever. pressure jumps up while driving, but at idle drops back to 0. Afraid to drive, what should I do?

First thing you need to do is put a mechanical gauge in place of oil sender and read actual oil pressure. If mechanical gauge shows same condition, take a look at the connecting rod bearing serving the cylinder where the valve bent. If the piston hit ... 2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Hi there I have a 2000 mitsubishi cedia wagon with the 4g93 1.8ltr GDI engine. A few weeks ago I was having trouble with the vehicle idling and surging very violently when applying immediate gas so I had it checked out and apparently the mechanic diagnose the fault as having high carbon build up in the intake and cylinders aswel as a faulty fuel pump. So its been a couple weeks now with the repairs applyed and the vehicle runs ok but still surges when giving it immediate gas in the low range 0-

I have a 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4.0L. About a couple of months ago, my dad did a tune-up on it: changed the spark plugs, the O2 sensors, and the fuel filter. However, recently my car has started to stall. For example, I was driving, and was about to turn onto another street. In the middle of the intersection, my car "shut off". The engine died because the gages all went down to 0, the power steering went out and the brakes were hard to push, but all the electricity was on like the radio

Fuel leaking Hi, I drive a 1989 jeep wagoneer limited and it recently began to leak fuel from the steel tubing and what looks like a filter located on top of the engine just back from the main fan belt. It looks like fuel is seeping, fast from the seam of the steel tubing and the filter thing or whatever it is, any ideas on a quick fix so I can get to a garage tomorrow without blowing up. Thanks in adavance, Rob

If it's a 4.0 engine, the filter thing is the fuel pressure regulator (does it have a vacuum hose going to a fitting on the intake manifold?) Depending upon how much material (clean tubing) you have to work with the temporary"fix" is just about the ... 1990 Jeep Wagoneer Limited

I have a 1993 Jeep Grand Wagoneer with the 5.2 V8. It turns over no problem but wont fire up. I used to be able to hold the key in the run position for a couple mins then hear the relays clicking then the engine light would come on and i could start it. Now nothing...anyone know?


Loud noise! 0 Jeep Grand Cherokee after about 5 min starts a very loud high pitch whinning.It used to eventually go away but now it is always whinning and even louder!Seems like it's coming from drivers side engine compartment near the intake manifold. I thought it was a belt because when you step on the gas the rpms go up and the noise quits until you slow down or come to a stop then it starts again!! Is it a vacuum leak? A bearing seizing somewhere? Belt tensioner?

I would say a bad pulley also. Try to open the hood at idle and see if you can hear where it's coming from. Possibly a bad idle pulley or even the fan belf if yours is a mechanical fan. ... 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee

I have a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee and the oil gauge is going from 0-50 psi. There is oil in the engine. Should I be looking at the gauge or the pump for the problem.

The 1st thing to do is hook up a mechanical test gage and see what the pressure really is, the one used in the truck is electronic and u could have a sending unit problem, if the mechanical test gage show the same readings u will need a new oil pump, ... 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee

No power i have an 89 jeep grand wagoneer and it has a full 13 volts at the battyer but when i put the key in and try to start it. it is acting like it has a dead battery. none of the accesories work and there is no power going back into the hood. i have changed and added extra body,chasis, and engine grounds. and this did not fix my problem. any idea on where to start looking. any help will do thank you very much

At this point, I'd start tracing power from the battery (where you know it is) till you find a point where it stops. You either have a deteiorated terminal connection somewhere (under power distribution box?) or a burned fusable link.Most likely you ... 1989 Jeep Grand Wagoneer

It sounds like a fualty sensor like camshaft sensor or bad 02 but the check engine light should be on if the problem is sensor or electrical related. I would change temp sensor and thermostat. Sounds more like faulty temp sensor if the car is running ... 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Could be unbalanced tires or bad balljoints or other suspension component, or both. You need to check this or have a shop check it out...It won't go away by itself and the shaking can damage other front end parts. ... 1999 Jeep Wrangler
