  1. ZJ Grand Cherokee Forum
    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...
  2. WJ Grand Cherokee Forum
    Recently needed to pick up a beater for new kid drivers(twin boys) and found a high mileage (187k) 4.7L grand Cherokee. When I checked it out the battery was dead and had to jump it, but it fired up pretty easy and ran strong. Took it around a couple blocks and seemed solid enough. Brought it...

    So today out of nowhere I go out to the car to go to the store and when I put the car in reverse and started backing up, it ran a little choppy, very slight, I thought maybe I had a slight flat. Get out and checked, and nothing, got back in, reversed again and felt it again, but then the car...

    Car is a 1999 Jeep Classic. Car stalls when it's around 70F and condensing indoors/humid. Stalls when slowing down to a stop mostly. Or stalls decelerating from 40mph down to 30mph (once) or so. And stalls at speed switching from premium to regular gasoline/has trouble starting. I noticed it...

  6. XJ Cherokee Technical Forum
    I've been able to make i happen twice but no more. I get my 4.0 started, it runs (great, I might add) for about 1-2 minutes then stops like it was just simply shut off. The first time - I charged the battery thinking that was it - with a 1.5a 12v "quick" charger for about 15min. It started...
  7. Jeep MK Compass & Patriot Forum
    Hello, I have a 2014 Jeep compass, under 40k miles, that keeps shutting off after start. No lights, no clicking, no shuddering, just sort of clean stalls after about 2 seconds. If I turn it off, and turn it back on again, it keeps repeating, unless I can somehow manage to rev it between 2-3k...
  8. KJ Liberty Forum
    i have a 2005 liberty with the v6 2wd, runs fantastic going down the road when tach is above 2k rpm, anything below and it jerks ever so often if i slow down it tries to shut off, if idling it randomly drops rpms and then picks back up and sometimes it stalls out, if i'm in gear like in a drive...
  9. ZJ Grand Cherokee Forum
    I ran into an issue a few months ago that has me confused. Here's the story from the top (sorry in advance for the novel): August '18: I replaced the intake plenum plate/gasket on the engine (using the Hughes engine kit). The intake was removed and the coolant system was drained. When refilling...

    A few months ago my 1996 Grand Cherokee Laredo with the 4.0 I6 randomly stalled out on me. Took it to the closest mechanic as my personal one wasn't available. He said Crankshaft Position Sensor. Had it replaced at my personal mechanic along with my power steering hose and signal switch for...
  12. TJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    Hi all, I have my 97 wrangler 2.5L and recently it has been misfiring at random occasions. I have done a complete tune up, spark plugs, wires, distributor cap, distributor rotor, and replaced upstream O2 sensor, and for some reason, occasionally when i step on the gas, the engine starts...

    Hey everyone, First off this is my first post on here, but have browsed and answer all my questions through many threads on this forum. So here the issue, I decided to tear out as much wiring as humanly possible on my 94 jeep zj limited. I knew i would have it under water and what not so I...
  14. XJ Cherokee Technical Forum
    I recently had a re-man engine put in my 98 Classic XJ. Had a dealer do it so I could get 3 year 100,000 mile warranty since i'm not "Certified" mechanic. The first engine the dealership said had ignition timing issues, but noticed that my radiator was wearing out and needed replaced they...
  15. XJ Cherokee Technical Forum
    This is only my second post to this forum, so please bear with me. Had to get a remanufactured engine. Only way to get 3 year 100,000 mile warranty was to go thru certified dealer, and to big a job for me. First engine they got, the dealer said there were ignition timing issues, and had to...
  16. XJ Cherokee Technical Forum
    Hi all, I have a 1999 Jeep Cherokee Classic 4.0 engine. The Jeep was stalling out randomly and eventually stopped running at all. When you turn the key it starts and runs for a few seconds then stalls out. I've had 3 mechanics look at it, and had the repairs done each time they diagnosed the...
  17. KJ Liberty Forum
    I have an 02 Jeep Liberty Sport 4WD 3.7 that seems to be devouring very good mechanics (0 for 6). With warm engine, whenever I come to a stop, the RPM’s drop to about 500 then surge to about 1300 and then engine dies. Occasionally it surges multiple times before dying. Shifting to neutral...
  18. ZJ Grand Cherokee Forum
    So my problem is that when i start the jeep cold it will run fine for a few minutes but then it will spit and sputter then even out again. Sometimes it will stall and it wont start without me holding the throttle down. This also happens while im in drive occasionally, ill give it gas to go but...

    Fellow Forum Friends: I truly hate to start yet another "Hesitation" thread. I have looked over various previous postings on the topic and, at least to my eyes, none seems to quite fit with my current situation. Knowing that even a minor difference in symptoms may indicate a major difference...
