Same problem here with my brand new 2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo, but my dealer in Ansonia CT refused to acknowledge the problem in any way, shape or form. Insisted that it must be the way I was driving this beast, which also had a problem with stalling several times. Had work done several times already. I have reported the brake problem to the NHSTA, or something like that, as suggested on another message board. There's also an old Technical Service Bulletin available somewhere on the web that addresses this problem, along with numerous discussion threads just like this one. My next car will be a Honda CR-V. When the class action suit is filed, I'll be the first in line.
#1025 of 5143 What's with all the "I joined today" posts?

Anyone notice how you click on the profile of most of the people posting all these problems and they just joined Edmunds that day?
Hmmmmmmmm, I kind of wonder how many of these posts are real.

Actually, most members have been around for a while but we've had quite a few newbies joining the forums over the past few months so they're a little more noticeable. Just click for their profiles again and you'll see they've become veterans!

Do you think people honestly sit around and make up jeep issues because they have nothing better to do?
Maybe us newbies finally found a place to assist with our questions from other experienced owners?
#1030 of 5143 93 Grand Cherokee Wont start in cold mornings
Apr 05, 2005 (2:07 pm)
I have a 1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4.0L, limited if it matters. I am having a problem in the morning it will not start. At any temp under 70 or so the motor will not fire. It turns over no problem, but wont start. If its hot out over 80 degrees, it starts up no problem. Why is this? When i was living up north i was told it was the fuel pump, and changed that and it did really change much after changing it. I moved to florida and it got better, but now its doing it again below 70-75 degrees it has a hard time starting. Is there a cold start injector of some sort or anything else it might be. Oh i also changed the crank sensor too. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I knew that post would elicit a response.
Here's my point: I have been a member since August 31, 2004 and have many posts. It was awfully nice of you to track down my very first post for me. It brings back fond memories!
You'll also notice that my first post wasn't a complaint about a vehicle and I also have a completely filled out profile.
I was not implying that all of the recent posts were "fake"; I was just opening the question that some of them may be.
And yes, I do believe that it is possible that some people may post fake complaints about a vehicle to prove their point on another forum.
Don't believe me? Take a look at the 4Runner vs GC thread.
I might add that I work for a company that converts Toyotas and have visited their engineering facility in Toyota City, Japan as well as their assembly plant in Princeton, IN and have a lot of respect for BOTH Toyota and DC engineers. I have nothing against either company and believe both the 4Runner and GC are very good vehicles.
As far as GCs go, I have 165,000 miles on my '98 and it's still going strong.

Apr 05, 2005 (6:08 pm)
I just bought my first JGC and the light was on when got it. The owner said he had it to two shops and they both said it needed a complete tune up and air filter and O2 sensors.
I found out that only one O2 sensor had been replaced, no wires, no cap, no rotor and only TWO PLUGS WERE NEW. Either this guy is a pure con artist or he is really too naive to see that the parts had not been touched.
We changed the cap, rotor and plugs the first night. Guess what, no engine light, but not that easy. The next day the engine died and the light returned!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This time I changed the fuel filter, but no success. Then I went straight for the fuel pump. The screen was clogged with years of crud and I able to clean and reassemble the module (1995 uses a single module for fuel pump, screen, pressure regulator and fuel guage.) After reinstalling the pump and the tank it started perfectly, but cut out after a few seconds--------as I said it's my first Jeep and I didn't know that the alarm system cuts off fuel until it is reset after the battery has been disconnected------------close the hood, lock all the doors and lock the last one with a key. Unfortunately I had already panicked and bought A NEW PUMP. Problem solved with the light!!
