1993 Jeep Cherokee Problems
A ticking type noise may be noted from the engine area due to an exhaust manifold that has cracked where the pipes are welded; cracked manifolds should be replaced.
The throttle body may accumulate an oily, black residue in the bore and on the throttle plate causing hard starting or possibly stalling when coming to a stop. The throttle body should be cleaned during regular maintenance but do not spray cleaners directly on or at the throttle position sensor (TPS) as this can damage the sensor.
Floor pan rust and corrosion typically happens where salt or mud is allowed to accumulate on the vehicle. Holes drilled in the floor can contribute to rust if the bare metal is not painted or protected with corrosion resistant coatings. Floor pan kits are available from Jeep and the aftermarket to repair rusted areas.
The throttle position sensor (TPS) may fail causing intermittent drivability problems like hard starting, stalling, and/or hesitation when accelerating. A failed TPS will require replacement, proper diagnoses should always be performed before replacing any parts.
