Hauling that heavy of a load and driving so fast and kicking it down to pass cars is whats doing that. I have a 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited with a 318 and i have changed everything you have except for the clutch fan and mine does just fine. It gets hotter than normal when my other half has me haul more than its made to haul. But I baby mine. The fastest I had it was 65mph on the highway which is the speed limit. Mine has 209,495miles on it and still going strong. But I don't drive it hard or hot rod it like your saying your other half does. Hope this helps you out.

I own a 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited with a 318 in it. I have changed all the sensors that are on the throttle body,both sensors by the thermastate housing, replaced all fuses and relays,new K&N air filter,its had a tune up, except for the cap and rotor cause its a pain in the a_ _ to get to. Getting ready to change that and fuel filter here in a day or so. But what it's doing is when it's cold it starts and idles like it should. But after it gets to normal operating temp when I startit, it dies or idles down so low it almost dies but it catches it self and idles back up. I have no problems while driving it. Just starting it. And some times here recently it dies when i stop after being in reverse. But thats when it's still a little cold. Any ideas what could be causing this?

#2569 of 2589 1998 jeep grand cherokee death wobble
Jan 16, 2012 (9:44 am)
Although I have reviewed some of the posts concerning death wobble's, I want to ask about my specific situation. My 1998 jeep grand cherokee limited (5.2l motor) had been doing the death wobble quite often, about a total of 20+ times at higher speeds of 50mph on up. I learned quickly how to control or stop it by coming to a quick complete stop. (on the side of the freeway) Most of the time the problem was initiated by going over a bump. I noticed finally that my track bar bracket broke, just below the bolts to the frame. I was told this is very uncommon. I replaced that, now my c/v axle's are getting bad. I have noticed that it seems to do the death wobble less in cold weather. I'm kind of assuming maybe its because the bushings, etc. are stiffer, which creates less play rather than when its hot out, and the bushings are warm and flexible. Do you think the track bar bracket bushing is the cause or a combination of parts, or something alltogether different? I look forward to your opinion. Oh, and what could happen in the worst case senario? Besides crashing and burning? What would be likely to break altogether? Is this quite unsafe for this to be happening on a semi-regular basis. I'm not that stupid, and think I know the answers to this, but would like to hear it from a mechanic. Thank you. Jason

The same thing happened to my 1998 Jeep.
I replaced the steering stabalizer and the sway bar bushings. The death wobble stopped instantly. That wobble was the worst thing especially when merging onto a highway!!! I always tried to avoid bumpy roads!! Ha

I had this problem two Jeep Cherokees ago, it turn out to be the wheel bearings in one wheel. It wasn't that expensive to get fixed, I would check that.

#2575 of 2589 Cherokee Cylinder One Spark Plug Cracking
Sep 25, 2012 (12:01 pm)
I have a 94 Cherokee Sport w/170,000 miles. Recently it has started cracking the spark plug in cylinder one about every 3-4 weeks or about 500 miles.
Does anybody know why this is happening?
thanks for your help.
