Long time lurker first time poster. I am just getting my start in jeep powered off-roading. I bought a black 1990 2dr Jeep Cherokee Laredo with a 4.0 liter and automatic transmission from my parents. I got it cheap, but its not without its problems. Over the past several years, my Jeep has mostly sat in a state of disrepair. There seems to be a chronic problem with the fuel pump burning out. We've had 3 factory jeep/mopar fuel pumps over the years and all 3 have burned out in a short amount of time. We have had it to mechanics/technicians all over Iowa and Wisconsin (where we bought it) and none of them have been able to successfully diagnose the problem.
My dad and I have nearly exhausted our patients. I was hoping some of you could offer a new direction to look in besides simply replacing the pump again, as there is obviously a problem elsewhere. Perhaps there is someone who has had similar problems or that no of a specific problem with that particular model year. HELP!!!
I have big plans, like everybody else on this board, for my new jeep, but my immediate concern is to have a dependable running vehicle first.
Thank you for your help,
