Hello everybody, I own a 1994 2.5l 4 Cyl. 4x2 Jeep Cherokee, it has nice 166000+ miles and i guess the time for many problems has come, last week i made 3 repairings, TPS(acceleration sensor), the air conditioner valve, and the IAC (if that's the name in jeep language or air admission??), now, the last time i plugged the scanner, a new problem, injector 1 is failing, i put in the tank a NOS injector cleaner and lots of prays (lol), but i guess it's time to spend money in my beloved jeep, in the last 3 months i'm abusing it, i'm driving 5 days a week 62 miles, guess it's telling me to calm down , 12 years are not for free... I serviced it 3 months ago, injector cleaning, filters, fluids, etc.
Now the question, the order of the problems, IAC--TPS--Injector sounds normal to you? what's next? if i can be ahead of the next problem..

I have '00 JGCL 4x4 4.7L
I have been experiencing that same issues!
So frustrating absolutely nothing make since about this issue. When it happens it just happens, it's not like every time I get to half a tank of gas, or hit 45miles per hour, or turn the air on... It doesn't seem to matter, I've been looking for a possible connection and haven't found anything.
I have replaced all my relays, checked all my grounds, vacuum hoses, replaced the cam-shaft, and crank-shaft position sensors.
I took it to the shop after all that and they think it's my PCM, seems to be the answer every time they don't know what else the problem is.
One thing to add though, is when I check my codes a bunch of them pop up to include: 7 of my 8 injectors are popping a code for misfire, the camshaft sensor is popping a code, my fuel sending unit is popping a code also.
Since they want nearly $1000.00 parts and labor for a PCM I'm inclined to try a couple of other things first.
I know my fuel pump is old and my sending unit is shot so I'm going to replace those items along with the filter.
I'll follow that with a pressure test to make sure every things good to go. Now this may not fix my big problem since most likely any of these components being faulty would cause a pretty regular problem and this big problem is very intermittent but unignorable. I'll replace my PCV valve retest my new camshaft and crankshaft sensors to make sure they're still functioning properly (if either of them aren't then I can start looking at what would cause them to go bad since they are new they would otherwise be fine)And finally top ot off with a spark plug and wire change. If that doesn't work I'll continue through the Emmsions and Engine control systems replacing applicable relays & sensors ie. throttle pos. sensor, rear wheel speed sensor, ect... After that I'll be out of ideas and low on money so hopefully someone will have some other suggestions or I'll look forward to a reply from rherndon saying he found the problem it was cheap and should fix your problem too!! If I could be so lucky... Thanks for reading folks and I look forward to hearing from you.

#2115 of 2589 96 Cherokee 4WD - Never engaged!
Oct 15, 2006 (10:21 pm)
I'm in negotiations to buy a 96 Cherokee Country with less than 40 thousand miles. It's mint, stored indoors and underused. Turns out the (original) owners have never even engaged the 4WD! A seasonal family roadtrip vacation once a year for 10 years.
Would I be a fool to just pop this 10 year old virgin into 4WD? Any recommended checks first?
I haven't had a mechanic look it over yet. Other than the tires, this thing is CHERRY. I'm so hoping to pick it up.
Thanks for any advice.
#2116 of 2589 We need your help!

Hi, everyone. As you've probably noticed, we have been trying to refine the discussions into more narrowly focussed topics. Our objective is twofold. We want to make it easier for people seeking specific information about their vehicles to find it easily and without having to wade through hundreds or thousands of postings.
To those ends, we will be shutting down the general make/model discussions and work exclusively with specific issues. This requires us to populate the make/model subsections with relevant, interesting and timely topics. Rather than having the hosts simply create boilerplate topics for each make/model, we feel that you, the owner, the make/model enthusiast and the prospective buyer can best judge what those topics should be.
You can help by adding a discussion (it's easy!) or suggesting one here.
To add a discussion, click on the last link in the "You are here" line at the top of this page. That will take you to the topic page for this make/model. Review the list of topics and click on the "Add discussion" link when you've decided what topic you'd like to add. Follow the directions and you're done! Feel free to add more than one. Just avoid duplicating existing topics and try not to make it TOO specific!
Your help and continued participation in the Forums is greatly appreciated! Thanks.
#2117 of 2589 93 Cherokee oil pressure problems
Oct 19, 2006 (8:26 am)
Hey all, hope you can help: I changed the oil on my 4.0 liter on Sunday; noticed that the oil pressure gauge is now at zero. Put in mobil 1 syn.
I've heard that I could have popped out the gauge when replacing the filter. Is this a common occurrence? I must hve driven at least 30 miles on the truck since the incident. If there were no pressure, would the engine have blown up by now, or is it probably the gauge? Any thoughts? Thanks so much
#2118 of 2589 JEEP CHEROKEE ENGINE TROUBLE
Oct 22, 2006 (8:41 am)
When I start the engine, it runs strong, but when I start revving it, smoke starts to come out of the PCV valve and oil starts spitting out of the dipstick. I replaced the PCV valve and dipstick with no luck. When I start driving oil starts to squirt out of the valve cover (i replaced the gasket). and after about 10 min. of driving the car starts to smoke bad enough that I can't drive it. Also, I've felt the coolant after driving and its ice cold (i'm thinking locked thermo.) but would that cause the other problems? also it doesnt have the horsepower taht it used to. Any ideas?
