Hello and welcome to FixYa!\012\012I'm suspecting that the PCM (power train control module) is faulty. If the PCM is faulty the electrical fails at any given time. The PCM is like a car's brain, I strongly suggest that you have it replaced as a ... 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee

When my 2004 jeep grand cherokee is first started and cold and i drive it for a bit ~ 1 mile or so at a certain higher rpm then slow down it will stall. It takes a few tries to start it up again but then runs good after. There is no engine light on. It happens always when cold. I have tried gas line antifreeze but it seams to be a motor/cpu air/fuel mixture? problem any ideas thanks


Can't give you a definite answer (testing will) but if the temperature sending unit and the manifold air temp sensor are a bit out of range, the information going to the computer may at one point be in conflict resulting in an improper fuel ratio. D ... 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee

I have a 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee limited with approx. 80k miles. I keep up-to-date on the recommended maintenance. The truck typically runs fine, with some exceptions. (1) When I first start the truck in the morning, you can hear liquid gurggling near the glove box in front of the passengers seat. Doesn't seem to create a problem, just sounds wierd. (2) The idle drops and truck stalls.. this only happens when I first take off, sometimes after the 2nd or 3rd stop. I am able to start the tr

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

I have a '97 Jeep Grand Cherokee. What happens is I can get it to start maost of the time every now and again it wont start.

1997 Jeep grand cherokee laredo. OMG Where do I begin. My jeep ran great for 2 yrs. Not any more-for a year now it had been stalling. Sometimes while driving 60 miles an hour-it cuts off and then all of a sudden power again as I am gliding down the hwy. Sometimes not so lucky and it dies and does not kick back to life. When I stop and pull over it would most often start again-go figure. Sometimes stalls at light and starts again/sometimes not. UUUUGGGHHHH! Well my mechanic had put it on the mach

Sometimes my 97 Jeep Grand Cherokee Loredo stalls, then takes up to an hour before it will start again - sometimes it will start right away. I've been told to check the fuel system, others say it could be a sensor or an air leak - the guys at the parts stores haven't got a clue, but they seem sympathetic when they find out what kind of vehicle I have - I love my jeep, but I'm dumping more $ into it than it's worth just to keep it running - what should I do?

I have a jeep grand cherokee laredo with the 4.0L inline 6 and it stalls when driving and is also hard to start. the engine turns over, so i know its getting enough juice but it will not start. after doing this trying to start i smell gas so i know that the injectors are spraying. i noticed that i am not getting spark by doing the spark plug tricky. when it starts that means it has spark and other times it just doesn't. this thing is stupid. i have changed spark plugs, wires, distributor, distr

94 jeep grand cherokee stalls after the first 5 min of operation


Sounds like the automatic choke is either binding or gone bad. On a cold start, that's why the RPMs are bumped up for a few minutes...the choke is allowing the engine to warm up, before dropping the intake mix to normal "run" level. ... 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee
