Did you get any advice as to what to do? I have had similar problems. Like starting up runs rough. Then when putting in reverse after the morning startup it pause like its going to die out. Then going up the hill looses all power. When stopping at stoplight or stop sign the oil guage goes down close to zero. Then when I take off slowly goes back to 40. I have also notice that when it hot outside I have more problems with rough running and oil pressure going to zero and bucking for a while. Now heres the biggest thing after I park from having the first morning drive it tends to run better. And oh yea if you try to fix anything it will run smooth for a day or two and then the problem comes back with a vengenace. Almost forgot I have a JGCL 95. Does anyone have some suggestion? Should we write letter to Jeep Company or what?

I need to replace front brake pads. How do i find out if my Jeep has ATE or Akebono calipers?
Also, any suggestions how much I should pay for reasonable replacement pads - quite a range of prices.

I just bought a 1996 Cherokee--they sold it because the headlights weren't working. We changed the headlight switch and now have high beams but not low beams. I would really like to know how you solved the problem with yours.

I am looking for the lower shifter boot to fit a 1991 Cherokee Laredo, 5 speed. The boot I am looking for is the one UNDER the console that bolts to the floorboard. Can anyone tell me where I can find a new one?

Your problem sounds like the one I had, it turned out to be the PCM (powertrain control module). I also had the crankshaft sensor replaced but it made no difference. A rebuilt PCM cost me about $250 at Advance Auto Parts. The installation is rather easy and took about 15 minutes. The shop never was able to diagnose it because it happened so infrequently and quickly for them in the shop. Other than when the problem occurred, the Jeep would run perfect.

I own a 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee and I too, have the same issues with the heater. It will only produce an ambient air temperature from both driver and passengers sides. IF you don't already know it is very common problem in 1999-2004 model Grand Cherokees has been weak blend and recirculation doors in the HVAC systems. The doors are turned by a motor attached to the bottom of the door at the end of a hinge shaft. The motor stops turning when there is enough physical resistance from the door stopping against its housing. This puts stress on the shaft/door junction and over time strips the shaft so that it spins almost independently of the door. The motor then experiences little resistance and keeps turning, which sends the "travel too large" code.
Any way, I posted a formal complaint with the website you provided, thank you. I was just wondering if you have received any reply yet. If you think there is anyway we can get the dealer to pay for this please let me know. Have a good day
