#3524 of 5143 Mobil 1 anyone?
Dec 24, 2006 (11:41 am)
Owners manual has no info on this. I have a 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee w/41,000 miles and the HO V8. Always had dino oil. But is it cool to use Mobil 1 in the HO V8 without fouling any sensors?
Anyone out there who may be using this product for awhile?
Cost for the oil is not an issue. Would like to extend the life of this engine as far as posible. Thanks in advance

I have a 97 JGC and my remote will not lock or unlock the driver side door but will lock and unlock all of the other doors. Any ideas as to what the problem could be and how to fix it.

My 1994 5.2 just did this today, I turned it on it idled smooth for about 10-15 secs and cut off. No sputtering no "stalling" just cut straight off, as if I had turned the ignition off. And it will not start back, it turns over just won't start. I haven't had a good chance to look at it yet and am just looking to find the best place to start. I believe it to be an electrical problem, be it a fuse or relay or short. Dunno yet. Any ideas?

Does your door switch work? Check the wires running in and through your drivers door for cracks, breaks, and abnormal bends. Has this problem been there since you acquired the Jeep? or has it happened recently?

There are 2 scenarios:#1 check your plugs, wires, distributor cap, rotor button. You could very possibly have a few wires crossed and or not connected. My old fadota did this when I pulled the plugs off at one time and replaced them wrong. After driving for a while like this your plugs may foul, which would explain why it wont even start now. By the way did it idle smooth when it would run?
#2 Also, check your fuel pump and/or filter. If your pump is bad or your filter clogged it will starve your engine of precious fuel and cause it to "miss". If when you would push the throttle it would cut back, this would be the problem. It would severely affect performance. Just check everything I said. I too have a 94 with the 5.2 and the fuel pump did mine that way. The way to check your fuel pump is to have some on turn your ignition to the on position with you standing in back of your jeep, even laying under your fuel tank, listening for a "whirr" or "buzz". If you don't hear anything your fuel pump is gone. If you do then check your fuel filter its on the fuel line in front of the tank. Take it off and replace it. I hope this solves your issue. BTW a fuel pump will set you back about $300.

I just bought the Jeep last week and I just noticed the problem. I thought it was locked and a friend opened the driver side after I had supposedly locked the Jeep with my remote. I have since noticed that when I am driving down the road and when the doors lock automatically the driver door does not lock.

I believe Ellen DiGenerus said it best " There was a noise coming from my car...I fixed it by buying a louder radio". What can you do when they tell you its normal?

Keep a damn close eye on your oil level. My 5.2 ticks when oil is low, 5.2s are notorious for drinking oil... and/or something may have gotten in your oil and clogged your pump screen, get some engine flush and put it in before your next oil change.

Someone may have gotten into it before... so, if you are slightly or moreso mechanically inclined take your door panel off and check the connections.
