I have a 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo - Within the past two months I've changed the ignition coil, distributor, distributor cap, spark plugs, battery, crank position sensor and IAC. The fuel pump was changed in June. It started with a rough idle and after changing the ignition coil and CPS it started stalling. I've taken it to two places, including a Jeep dealer service center and neither of them have been able to pinpoint the problem. The dealership had it for 2 days and it didn't stall once, but as soon as I brought it home, it stalled while pulling into my driveway. Both places ran diagnostic tests and no error codes came up. It used to run for about 20 to 30 minutes then stall, now its been reduced to about 5 minutes. Any suggestions? I'm beginning to lose hope.
#2362 of 5143 Do I need a new track bar?
Dec 18, 2005 (7:14 am)
I recently took my 94 GC to a "known" tire shop to get an alignment. They called and said there was no use in aligning my jeep because it needed a new front track bar. Since the alignment was a monthly, $20-off special, and the total cost of a new track bar with installation at their shop was over $250, should I be suspicious that they were trying to sell me something I didn't need? How can I tell if my track bar is bad? Could it be that the bushings just need to be replaced, or do track bars really go bad over time? Coincidentally, a similar situation occurred at the same shop when I took it there to use a coupon to get my tranny flushed. When they learned that I didn't want anything else done besides replacing the filter, they told me that it might not be a good idea to flush the t-fluid on a vehicle with over 300K. That didn't make sense to me at all. Periodic maintenance is the key to a Jeeps survival. Any takers?

This is a long shot, but it may solve your problem. Do you happen to have any oil in your air filter? I had the problem of a rough idle until a few days ago when I replaced the CCV valves and hoses on my 94 GC Laredo. It turned out that years of build up had almost completely blocked my crankshaft ventilation sysetem. For more info, see message #2339 and the reply to it by "Trickster." If this is your problem, it'll cost under $30 to fix.

I have owned my Jeep for the past four years, I have two questions.
How do you replace the front Parking Lamp? It seems hard to get the lens off.
I am starting to have emissions problems, in the past 18 months we have had the oxygen sensors replaced 3 times. I emission light comes on the gas mileage drops. I stead of getting around 320 per tank, I have been getting around 260 per tank. I bought some Lucas fuel injector cleaner and that seems to do the trick for a while. I think that the carbon builds up on the fuel injector and thats why I getting this emissions light. Anybody else got a theory????
Need help, I am a Jeep lover

I own a 2004 jeep grand cherokee limited and when i came down to go get my car I notice that the headliner is wet on the right side near the moonroof, it was raining the night before. The weird thing is that the moonroof was closed. Does anybody know what the problem is?

Not to sure about the emissions problems, but I can help with the parking lamps.
(1). There are 2 bolts that have to be removed in order to take of the entire headlamp assembly. One is a long bolt that resides on the top of the headlamp and the other is a hex-shaped bolt that also has to be removed.
(2). Once these bolts are removed, you have to grasp firmly on the corners of the light assemby to pull free from the tabs in which the lights are held in place. Hope this helps out.
P.S.- I thought of something as far as the emissions go. How many miles does your Jeep have on it? Sometimes with higher mileage cars, catylitic converter sometimes become defective, resulting in emissions problems and failures. If the Malfunction Indicator light is on mow, take it to Autozone and they'll tell you what the codes are free of charge. If it says something like "catylitic converter below threshold", then it's you cat.

I have an '03 that had a vibration at 45mph, off the gas. It sounded and felt like knobby tires, or tires out of balance. But since it was only under certain conditions, I was afraid it was something in the tranny. Turned out it needed a new front driveshaft. The dealer figured it out, very quickly in fact, unless it was a lucky shot in the dark! My point is, it may be a u-joint or something like that, not necessarily the tranny.
