cherokee problems

i just got this 96 jeep cherokee i have had it for 4 days now and it was runnin great but the other night it started backfiring on me now i've been told it could be my cadolac convertor but idk also i was lookin under the hood and noticed a wire from my alternator was just hanging now she will turn like she wants to start but wont and when she does she dont stay runnin long enough to go anywhere and wont hold a charge on the battery so if you could take a picture of your alternator for me please and any advice would be nice

Start with buying a Haynes or Chilton's auto repair manual for your Jeep. Make sure the previous owner did not cheap out on maintenance or repairs. Fix whatever you find that needs fixing.


The loose wire is probably the source of your problems.


Capitalization, punctuation, spelling, and proper sentence structure make it easier to read your posts and will guarantee you more replies.
