#1783 of 2588 Gas Leaking 1995 Jeep Cherokee
Dec 14, 2005 (1:36 pm)
My 95 cherokee leaks gas from the top of the tank. You can not see exactly where but it leaks from the top, even when the tank is almost empty. The leak only occurs during the fall and winter. In the summer it does not leak gas. I dont know if there is some kind of filter there or what the problem is, but I would like to get it squared away. If anyone actually knows what the problem could be or has heard of this problem before, please let me know what you know. The jeep still runs great, even with 198 grand on her. Please help me. Thank you,

The relay, I had completely forgotten about it! That is a definite possibility. I'd still check to see if you have power to the fan. If you don't, that relay would be my primary suspect. Relays are easy to change, literally pull the old one out, it just plugs in, and push the new one into the socket.

You need to drop the tank. Drive it until it is nearly empty so the tank won't be so heavy. Remove the two bolts at the rear of the tank that holds the straps. Use a floor jack to support the tank. Either before, or as you begin to lower it, you'll have to remove the filler neck hose and may have to remove other hoses/wires that are attached to the frame. Once down, you should be able to see where it has been leaking.

I'm sorry for your loss. I hope they didn't do too much damage getting it out. In most cases the damage done is worth more than the player itself.
You're going to need to purchase a wiring harness. You can pick up and most all car audio shops or even a Van and truck world.
I'm assuming they just hacked your wires off? If they did that then you obviously have to take care in re-wiring. Be sure there are no nicks further up the wires and keep the factory wires as long as possible, but all the same length to keep them neat and tidy.
Bare with me for the wire colours. (these are the wires inside the Jeep, not the ones on your new unit, those may different and you need to match them up with the instructions that came with it. You did get instructions right?)
Front speaker Left: +Green, -Black/White
Front speaker Right: +Black, -White
Rear speaker Left: +Green/Black, -Brown/White
Rear speaker Right: +Brown, -White Black
In line Ignition: Red
Light Switch: Blue
Fuse Block: Pink
Power Antenna(if applicable): Grey
Dimmer: Orange and White
GROUND WIRE: BLACK
I hope this helps! Good luck and if your new unit has a detachable faceplate, take it off if you're leaving your truck somewhere where it would be easy prey. The unit is worthless without the faceplate. And don't just put it in the glove box.
#1787 of 2588 about 2.1l diesel

Does anybody know about axle ratio's of 2.1l diesel engine cherokee?

Well I know it's been a while, but even after I tore the throttle body off and cleaned all the stuff on there, it still decided to do it's irregular idle thing. The last time it did it though I popped the hood ripped off the hose from the air box leading to the throttle body and manually revved(or at least tried to rev) up the engine. All it did was backfire inside the header as usual until reaching 3000 RPM and I was on the road again. I have been told to change the MAP sensor, but I also heard that there is a possibility of a vapor locked fuel pump. The fuel pump thing does make sense since it only acts up on me when it's hot and here in Illinois it's like -10 and it's running like a dream. Oh well I guess I will just keep fining things until there isn't anything left.

I still remember this discussion and I had similar problems. I also polished the throttle body up and cleaned the Idle Air Control Modual. It was pretty much all carbon. I also still noticed not much difference as it pertained to the problem I was having. Later I finally had a mechanic help me diagnose the problem. As I suspected, it was nothing too dramatic. Seems as tho there was a loose and dirty ground connection (all grounds lead to a bracket??) which caused the O2 sensors to fail and inturn the check engine light came on and the false mixture caused the engine to idle irraticly at times and not respond to throttle at all when accelerating. Maybe there is a ground wire loose on yours aswel causing perpendicular problems. I am driving 500km on New years eve and will definately find out during that trip wether or not that was in fact the problem, but so far so good! Good luck and Jeep it up!

The best advise I can give you is to give your sound system an upgrade and order one from Crutchfield, plus when you get the new unit it should have a wiring diagram. Most of the stereos that I have installed(atleast 10) have a standard color coded wiring harness.
