  1. ZJ Grand Cherokee Forum
    I own a 1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee ZJ (218,00 miles) with the 5.2 (318) magnum. I bought this jeep for cheap a year ago and it has always had this inconsistent rattle or clatter since I’ve had it. It doesn’t matter if it’s cold or warm, Been running for 2mins or an hour. The rattle comes and goes...

    Just attempted a short drive cut shorter by stalling out on main street. Would not start again without gas pedal all the way down and priming the fuel pump multiple times. Would not stay running without staying on the gas. Also saw the rpm needle go crazy before stalling again after turning off...

    I am looking more if this can be done. My 4.0 has developed a issue, it feels like low compression in a cylinder. Basically it has a shake at low idle, but it seems to run ok and the vacuum is ok and the mileage is not that bad, so I am going to have to do a compression test and see. It does...

    I have a '97 ZJ with the 5.2. Some jerk thief stole my cat, cutting my exhaust with a sawzall, cutting the downstream O2 sensor wire. I've driven the jeep a little bit (< 10 miles, sounds AWFUL) but I was expecting it to throw a code or something. My question is, am I going to be running...

    Hey all, I’m new to the forum and happy to be here, hoping to access the hive mind with some questions I’ve got regarding my Jeep. I bought a ’95 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited with the 5.2L v8 under the hood about 6 months ago with 168k miles on the clock. Factory recommended maintenance has...

    What's up everyone, its been one thing after another with this jeep, but i'm still trucking to get it in better shape. Recently did my oil pan,oil gasket and rear main seal. In the process of that i slightly pulled the transmission line a little to far and it's leaking from the connection...
  7. YJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    I have a 92 yj with a 318 swapped in. It runs great EXCEPT that it dies on idle occasionally when braking, cornering, or just coasting. I THINK it is a fuel delivery issue. I replaced the stock fuel pump with an external high-flow Walbro pump (although I might not have needed to do that). The...

    I pulled the airbox on my 95 5.2L zj and found a disconnected vacuum line under it. it is very long and snakes up from under the steering box. there is no obvious port nearby and my jeep runs fine. does anybody have any ideas?

    So to start it is a 1995 GC with the 5.2. This started by intermittently dying while driving down the road. It would start back up after a few minutes. I've gotten to the point where it won't die and idles fine. When you put it in gear, hold the brake, and give it gas it starts stumbling...

    Any insight guys? 5.2L ZJ running in to starting problems this winter. If temp was below 40 degrees, it took 5-10min of turning key to accessory mode, letting comp cycle and fuel rails prime. Eventually it would start. Once the engine warms up, I can cut it off and start it up again no...

    Hey guys, I'm new to the forums and I hope that some of you can help me. I've got a 96 ZJ with the 5.2 V8, and the oil pressure drops at idle and very low revs. But as soon as I accelerate, the pressure goes back up, albeit to a lower level than usual. My first thought was that it may be burning...

    Just a forewarning, this question might sound a little ridiculous but since my driving experience is limited to about 3 cars I have no reference point when it comes to power. Anyways, last spring, I just purchased my first car, which is a 95 grand cherokee I-6. I got it for 1700 and had about...
  14. ZJ Grand Cherokee Forum
    While I was driving my 97 5.2 fell flat on it's face and died on me. I popped the hood and wiggled the cam sensor wires (popped code so it was temporarily fixed) and it started back up. It idled for a minute and when I gave it some gas it revved and then died again as the rpms dropped. When it...

    Does anyone know the difference between spark plug wires in the 95 5.9 and 5.2 zj engines? I want to pick up a set of granatelli wires, but they only make them for the 4.0 and 5.9 engines. are both the V8s the same dimensions with regard to plug wires? *Apologies, they only make them for the...
  16. ZJ Grand Cherokee Forum
    Hello!!! I'm new here. I'd like some HELP please. I bought this old ZJ to be my winter beast. Been replacing all the logical things to make sure she doesn't break down on me in the harsh winter condition to which I will expose her. My issue is this, I replaced the battery with a new one and...

    I have a 1995 Grand Cherokee with 160k. I got home and turned off engine, 30 minutes later it wouldn't start. It just turns over but won't fire. I get a spark when I put a wire near ground. I shot starting fluid down the throttle body, but didn't catch even once (I ruled out fuel pump due to...
