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"?
First time this happened I was driving a trailer from PA to TX. I just got into Texas, it was very hot, and the Jeep started bucking violently. Engine light went on. I found a Jeep dealership, they read the codes. I forget which cylinders and injectors came up. 1 guy told me is was serious, another guy was awesome, he said I could safely get home 7 more hours. I let the car cool down, it got me home.
Since then my Jeep has been to 5 repair shops since August 2016 with multiple misfires (bucking), each time a code comes up it is a different set of cylinders/fuel injectors.
What I can do to cause the car to buck.
AC on while towing a trailer up a hill
Mis/bucking starts at 60 mph. I can get it to stop by backing off gas. If the engine cools down it will also help. If the AC is off it helps too.
Even the hot day and AC will not always create the problem.
One shop did fuel cleaners, fuel kit, new plugs, new air cleaner, it improved mpg, but did not fix problem.
The car has been in 2 shops for 2 weeks with them trying to replicate the problem.
Anyone out there have similar problem?
Thanks for any help.
smoking after driving for 5 minites
fluxuate about 250 up and down while idling and driving most of the time, not just when the faults are showing.
Did not disconnect battery.
Removed the fan shroud.
Removed the serpentine belt (I did remove 2 pulleys to alternator and the one to the right and put them back on. Not sure if this would throw anything off?)
Removed old water pump by taking out all bolts (I think there were 7 total), disconnecting rubber hose containing radiator fluid to the left and rubber hose on top of water pump, and metal hose to the right (unsure what this was).
Connected new water pump and reconnected all hoses and bolts.
Put on new serpentine belt.
Put fan shroud back on.
When I went to go crank the engine, ignition cranks, but will engine will not start. I used jumper cables from my other car, but it seems it won't hold and dies really fast.
I did some research online, and saw some people saying that I could have messed up the timing? Is this correct?
Losing power fast, did I mess up something with the alternator?
Any help would be great. Thanks.

Jeep Grand Cherokee '08 Check Engine light came on. Drove into parking lot and went into store, came out and engine would NOT turn over. Friend cleared 4 codes: PO152, PO300, P1129, PO152 and light went out and engine started. Drove yesterday no problem and no CE light and bought ACTRON PLUS Code Scanner. This morning engine will NOT turn over. My scan only revealed one code regarding ABS which I cleared, however the engine will NOT turn over. Question 1: Is the engine not turning over a safety measure as "limp mode" in other cars? Q 2: Is there something seriously wrong with the car that clearing the codes did not work the second time? I've only had the car one month, from a reputable dealer, and all CarFax reports clean. Also, new to JEEP so not educated on its computer/engine. Please HELP!!!
