Having problems with your 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee ?

It stalls while driving, when it first started happening it would re-start after a few minutes- now it won't start for quite a long time. We were told it was the fuel pump by two different mechanics, and so we replaced both the pump and fuel filter and it did not make any difference with the stalling problem. We have also used fuel injector cleaner, manually cleaned the fuel lines and are relativly sure it is not an electrical problem.

Answers :

When it stalls, can you hear the fuel pump running when you turn the key back on? If you can, then the pump is good and the wiring is OK. If not, check the pump relay in the power distribution center.
Did either of the mechanics that advised you actually do any testing? Did you do any testing?
Have you tested the crankshaft position sensor? It can give identical symptoms. To do proper testing you will need a chiltons manual (better than haynes especially for electronics) and a digital multi-meter.
Check the cps both when engine is working and when it has stalled. (cam sensor can do that as well as ignition coil but cps is most common.)

I have a 1994 oldsmobile 88. I park my car front side up on driveway. I dont know why this would make a differance but this is when car really acts up. I try to start and it starts but immedietly losses power as if there is no gas and there is also a strong gasoline smell. I finally keep it runnning and once i take off when i accelerate if dies. But turns right back on. I have changed the fuel pump relay, the fuel pump and filter. Could the fuel pressure regulator be the problem? Also the engine

97 cougar xr7 will not start. Ran fine the other day, no problems, but this morning would not start, not able to get it to start all day. Tried charging battery, removed battery for charging (about 10 min or so), checked to see if wiring was fried (cant see any damage), has fuel, has oil, etc. Really strange. When you first turn key you hear the fuel pump working then when you turn further (to start) nothing.. no click - nothing. Tried jumper cables, nothing makes a difference. I have power

My 1993 Lumina APV (3.8L), has a what I am calling a surge. Between 45 to 60 mph and different times it will surge. I can let my foot of the gas and it may stop or I can give it more gas and it generally starts. I have changed my fuel filter, fuel pump, throttle position sensor, and spark plugs and wires. We have put it on a computer and it doesn't say there are any problems. I have put fuel cleaner in it that doesn't seem to make much difference.


Sounds like the torque converter clutch is slipping in the transmission-next time it starts doing this-instead of letting off on the gas tap the brake with your left foot-if it goes away i would be 98 percent sure that it is the torque converter clut ... 1993 Chevrolet Lumina APV

2005 Grand Prix base model. Starts cold no problem. But drive it for 10 minutes, turn it off do shopping for 20 minutes and the doesn't start.It starts up and dies. This happens 3-5 times. Seems the only way to get by this situation is to give it gas just as it started, but then it revs and makes it emberassing, and yet still could die out!! I've replaced the fuel pump relay, but made no difference. No lights come on so no codes are available. I don't want to change to fuel pump/sending unit and

Hey it's me with the fuel problem.. new question: you mentioned the fuel pump will make a sound but not pump. i disconnected the hose into the filter from the tank and put a bottle up to it. upon turning the key and starting the car and flooring the gas, the pump makes a noise but spits VERY little if any gas into the bottle.. maybe 10-20mL after 4-5 "start" attempts with pump coming on and shutting off every time.. can you expand on what it means when the pump makes a sound like it's working


It means that the veins and impellors in the pump have worn out. The motor inside will continue to turn and create noise but there is nothing to grab the fuel and push it forward. Basically it means replace the pump. When the pump is on it will push ... Chevrolet Cavalier

I have a 92 firebird with a 3.1 that stalls when slowing (braking)down to a stop, going slow and turning, also it will stall when taking off from a stop. This is an intermittent problem, never know when it may stall, will start up fine and get somewhere, then it will either start and stall when giving it gas (just sitting in driveway)or stall when out and about. I have replaced the egr valve, fuel filter, fuel pump, vacume hoses, and problem is still there. Any information would be appreciated.

How to install a new fuel pump in my 1998 Honda Passport? How to test if it's the fuel pump, fuel pressure regulator or the fuel sending unit that's causing the problem. Problem: When I start my truck, it turns over but stalls out immediately. It takes more and more starts to get it going, I've had it die out on me while driving twice...but this is over a 1 month period. Sometimes the gas guage will show and empty tank when I know there is gas in the tank (happening for about 6 months).


The gas gauge contacts get corroded by the chemicals in your gasoline over time, the only way to fix that is to replace the fuel sender unit...unfortunately the sender unit is usually incorporated into the fuel pump. fuel delivery problems like you ... 1997 Honda Passport

94 jeep 4cyl fuel problem, relay making noise. I have a 94 4cyl manual wrangler. I need to turn ignition ON and OFF repeatedly until i hear fuel pump relay making about 5 seconds of continuous noise before it will attempt to start. Once it starts runs fine. Switched out the relay, still doing it. Brother said could be leak in system, but we tested the fuel pressure and it only went down after an hour. Is this just a whacked pump?
