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

Our jeep grand cherokee has very "loose" steering. Just a small bump in the road and it's very hard to control the wheel. Our mechanic says he can't find anything to fix, but it seems to be getting worse so I don't want to ignore the problem.


There is a couple of things to check. First grab a hold of the front wheels and try to turn them by hand by jerking on them. Check to see if there is a alot of movement or a clunking sound. Also while standing still and engine off turn the steering w ... 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee

I bought a 1989 Jeep Cherokee 2 dr 4x4. Today the power steering got hard and the alternator light on the panel turned on, when I accelerate the problem goes away until it lowers RPM's when I got home from a 10 minute ride there was pressurized water coming out from the hose in the coolant reservoir. Any clues? I think it could be a crankshaft pulley problem.

Hello, I put my key in the ignition and when I turned the key it just kept turning and the vehicle did not start. I dont think it is the battery b/c the lights, windows and radio worked. I could not remove the key. I tried turning the steering wheel but it was very hard to turn. I had to have it towed. What could it be?? I have a 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee Larado. HELP. It is currenty at a collision repair ctr. & I am worried about what they are going to find and the cost!!


It may possibly still be the battery. While the windows and lights, etc. may have worked, those require a small output from the battery. The same problem happened to me when I left my trunk open for a long period of time. The engine requires a muc ... 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee

When the 4 wheel drive of my 1996 JEEP Cherokee is engaged it kicks back severly when the steering is at almost full lock in either direction. ''feels like the scrubbing from a locked diff on a hard surface'' it is also very noisy whinning (Much more than an old landrover)


That is normal and the way most all 4 wheel drive systems operate. And the noise is normal..the jeep has a REAL 4WD system...the land rover had a cheap simple system. \015\012\015\012You have nothing to wory about ... 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee

We had a small leak about the size of a quarter over a 12 hr. period, it was power steering fluid, we took our 2002 Jeep Grand cherokee to a Jeep dealer. They said it was the power steering pump, they replaced it with an after market pump. Cost to repair $ 400.00. The next day we have a leak on the garage floor the size of a dinner plate !!!!!!! Returned to dealership, they said that a line is leaking and that the pressure from the new pump caused it to leak more, UM, also there is a high

Got a 99 jeep grand cherokee larado. when you first get in and take off the automatic does great until you go thru a few shift cycles then it shifts hard into 3rd. you can stop and turn off the jeep and let it sit a few moments then start again, it does fine for a few cycles then starts shifting hard into 3rd again. any ideas?


Dirty transmission filter. Most "service" places only pump out the fluid through the dipstick tube and tell you that the filter will be OK. That way they don't get an ATF bath when they pull the pan. I'm guessing that the crud in your tra ... 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee

I have a 2002 Jeep Cherokee with a 4.7 engine. I replaced the power steering pump only a year and half ago. Now it is leaking again, but I haven't had much luck finding the leak. I fill it up one day and two days later, it is empty again. Do I need to have someone turning the steering wheel while I watch for leaks underneath the Jeep? Any products or suggestions to try would be appreciated.


Yes you would see where its leaking cos it will positively squirt out under pressure when operated, it is likely the rack end seals that are leaking.\015\012\015\012These can be replaced in most models but some need a new rack.\015\ ... 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee
