1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee QuestionsRefine by vehicle
runs fine on fresh battery and full tank of gas.gas gets low,wont idle and runs rough for a min or two.sometimes if I shut it off and restart it runs better
for couple of days didn't want to start right up, then it died while driving turning a corner and after sitting 30 min finally fired up ,but while trying to start it there was strong smell of gas coming from tail pipe. A day later it wouldn't fire over at all "crank no start" now after messing with it spraying wd40 while cranking it over it starts"ruff" but then keeps clean steady idol. Also have some interior electrical issues when turning my steering column clicking under dash with blinking lights, could electrical have anything to do with my "crank no start"?
That jeep cranks over but won't start
Jeep squeals upon start up. I replaced the belt twice , replaced the idler pulley and the tensioner and pulley, it still squeals at start up and continues to squeal until engine is warm
Will it blow the fuse & act like a dead battery?
Recently got a notification from the Jeep's computer telling me that the coolant level is low. Went to the store, bought coolant, topped it off to the fill line, drove home and the very next day, got the same notification and the level had dropped to where it was before I topped the reservoir off. I noticed some fluid below the Jeep after i filled it the third time. After filling it for the 4th time, noticed the drops coming from somewhere in the engine bay, but couldn't see where the fluid was coming from. If anyone knows where the leak is coming from or knows any reputable independent mechanics, that'd be great
I had my front lower control arms replaced. They did not mark the bolts, new bolts in wrong direction and impacted on. Can I undo it all, using the same parts and redo it? Will my bolts torque correctly since they have been tightened to the max? Is it true once these bolts have been torqued before they cannot be torqued again? How will I ever get them lined back up like they should be?
I had just put two new tires on the front within a half mile it started to want to pull to the right, when you reach 30mph it felt like something was dragging it down. Could this be the transfer case?
Open to suggestions Please!
I have electrical issues, which my mechanic believes is what has been draining my battery.So I replaced the battery and alternator to be sure. Now, she won't even run. It's not the starter, she turns over but then sounds really old and nasty and then just cuts off again. This has been going on for the duration of this process. What could be the real problem?
All of the lights, both inside and out, flicker simultaneously. All except the blinkers. This occurs mainly at night, obviously. Then there is another electrical problem... I think maybe the sensor or whatever for the Trunk doors is broken. The lights inside remains on and the sensor screen in the front shows that the rear door is open, when in fact, it's actually jammed... soooo. Do you have an idea of what the problem is?
Throttle sensor and ignition coil recently replaced. Replaced because of codes shown from check engine diagnosis. Still same problem. Normally dies out when attempting to stop or driving highway speeds (cuts off mid-drive and restarts).
