I have a 2002 Jeep I have a 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo v-4. When I am idling at a light, my jeep has shut off about seven times. It starts right back up though. When I am idling and sometimes while driving my car will rev up and the RPMs go up and then back down to normal. It feels like the jeep is trying to shut off but then the RPMs go way up to stop it from shutting off. I went and put it on a computer at a local auto zone and the problem that came up was camshaft sensor

I have a 1995 jeep cherokee se. Runs fine most of the time. If I run in for an extended period of time, the engine quits running. If I leave it set for a half hour or so, it will start up no problem. From what I figure, I think something is overheating. My reason for that is after the engine stops I can decrease the down time till it starts back by lifting the hood and get more air to the engine. If I leave the hood down, it takes longer to refire.


First off what does the temperature guage say. Second does the truck seem to be excessively hot when you open the hood. If it is overheating does it seem to be losing water. If it is overheating change the thermostat and gasket cheapest fix. Makes su ... 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Hi there,\015\012\015\012if the problem is under load as you are describing it to be, then perhaps you have some bad fuel, maybe water was in there. You could also have a timing chain problem if it back firing that way. But double check ... 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Our 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited keeps stopping and the gas guage is the only guage that quits working. We had the crank case sensor replaced and that didn't work. Sometimes we have to wait 30-45 minutes and it will start up. Sometimes it starts after a few minutes. Our mechanic had it for two weeks and couldn't get it to do it and as soon as we got it back it has done it 4 times in a week. Any suggestions?

I had new electric cooling fan put in my 2001 jeep grand cherokee about 4 months ago. The past month the fan intermittently wont come on and the car starts to overheat. If I let it sit overnight it seems to work the next day and might work for 3 or 4 days in a row but then it can stop working again at any time. When it stops working it wont come on with the A/C on or off. Today the fan went off again and so far it wont come back on even after a couple of hours of sitting in my driveway. I

I have a 94 jeep grand cherokee, v8 5.2, Im having issues with what i think is the tranny.

Jeep Grand Cherokee 2000 V8 Quada track - shutters at times while moving sort of like a cylinder misfired. Usually when warm but no code is identified. Occasionaly the engine dies at a stop but starts right back up. Initially thought it was transmission until it died at a stop but now I believe it is in ignition but not codes to check. Had it in shop with code reader attached but no codes. Does anyone have an idea ?


OK do the usual, check your plugs and check your plug sockets and leads for signs of shorting out against the cylinder head etc check the cap and distributor. My guess is that at least one of your coils (on plugs) has failed and this will reveal its ... Jeep Grand Cherokee

Won't Start I have a '97 achieva that won't start. Here is the break down of the problem that got it there. When we bought it the man told us it my need a radiator. So after driving for some time it started to overheat. Then the battery stop charging so some times when we were out the car wouldn?t start without a jump or we would have to wait or play with the cable to the battery. So one day it was hard to start when it did get started it stopped because it ran out of gas. We pushed it back in t

Starting Problems Good luck. I have 2007 Lexus ES350 with Intermittent Starting problems. They towed it to Lexus, replaced the start button as they were defective under certain VIN#'s. Then it happened a 2nd time, back to Lexus, no problem there. Back to Lexus a 3rd time for 10 days. Brought it back to me and they said if they can't duplicate it, can't fix it.
