They can't seem to figure out what is causing it. Any clues or thoughts?

Why did it not hold the charge?

Hello all! I have a 1996 Jeep Cherokee 4.0liter V6 that won't accelerate over 15mph. The engine is pretty shaky. I have replaced both o2 sensors as well as the catalytic converter, as I suspected those and the check engine light codes pointed to 02 sensor. I was wondering if anyone had any ideas about what the problem could be?

Thanks!! :)

Are jeep ha rubber hoses on both coolant line by the radiator. Is that standard equipment ? Why would it all of a sudden blow one of the off?

Recently I had the starter changed. After, there was a ticking coming from under the hood. I was afraid it was the motor, but I think I have determined that's not it. The belt also squeals terribly when I start it and the squealing has begun to last longer. Could the 2 be related and what could the problem be?

the manifold seems to be resting on the axel so I am wondering maybe I cant use this type of manifold on a 96:(

4.0 hi output 6 cylinder 2 wheel drive, I noticed it's quite common for the exhaust manifolds to crack, on other years as well, is there a flaw with this part which is causing it to crack?
