Having problems with your Jeep Cherokee ?

Answers :

You need to test your alternator to see if it is properly charging your battery. Start your jeep and remove the positive connector from the battery. If your vehicle stalls you may need an new alternator. Also check the following issue that could cause you to stall, clogged fuel filter, choke not properly operating, faulty emissions system components, distributor cap damaged or wet, bad spark plug wires, leak in your vacuum system intake manifold or hoses. Also check your spark plugs for wear or improper gapping.
