Im having problems starting my jeep while it is cold. It will turn over then die after just a few seconds. After awhile when the day would get warmer the jeep would start without any problems. Now that its colder It wont stay running no matter what time of day. We have found that if we take a hair dryer and blow it on the distibuter (I think thats what it is it's on the back of the engine) it will start and stay running. Please if someone can help us out with any suggestions.
#3828 of 5143 rough idle after startup
Dec 08, 2007 (12:50 pm)
I have a 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee WJ. When I start it up after the engine is at normal operating temperature, it idles rough for a few seconds. There is no stalling or hesitation, just the rough idle. I noticed a smell of semi-burned fuel [which means that its running rich] when this happens and the RPM goes to 1,200.It's a 4.0 POWER-TECH I6. Other than that things are fine. By the way, the engine light isn't on.

Can someone give me an idea on how to get the fan bolt off? I have bought manual and it did not work. I have tried turning the bolt both ways and neither way will loosen. What should I do now?

How many bolts are there? Do you want to (are you able) to do a direct chat? I will talk you through it if you like...try me at StellaMazik on yahoo messenger. If it's just rusted, spray it with WD-40 and then tap it GENTLY with a hammer to knock the internal rust loose.

After reading the postings, I wondered if you ever got your Jeeps electrical probs solved and what was the cause. I have a 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee and suddenly all my power windows have stopped working, my cruise control no longer engages, my interior lights have issues, and my air bag light stays on. I have only had this vehicle 3 months and all these things have happened within a week. All the fuses have been checked and are all good, but I can't figure out why this is happening. Please let me know if there is something I should check or know.

I have a 2004 grand cherokee limites and the heat is not working on the drivers side only , it blows cold on the drivers side and hot on the passenger side. I got diagnostic codes of 54 left temp door travel too large and 56 right temp door travel too large.
I was wondering what you did to fix your heat? Did you try recalibrating the azc?
could it be a vacum hose or leaves that are jamming the doors?
please let me know.

i feel your pain about the over heating issues.. I have a new water pump, hoses, radatior cap thermastat. I have flushed her my self and professionaly.. when the tempertor is over 70degrees. she may or may not over heat some times in highway traffic running at 70mph if some slow car gets in front she will over heat.
But my baby never over heats when i am near the auto shop ( I trust to do the service and maintance I dont like to mess with)

#3836 of 5143 2004 Grand Cherokee - Transmission problem
Dec 10, 2007 (2:10 pm)
Recently the dealer performed warranty service on the transmission, which would not downshift out of overdrive. After the service, there is a distinct ATF smell that comes through the vents when using fresh air intake. I can smell it plain as day, as can my passengers, but the dealer claims "unable to duplicate"
I've checked as best I can for leaks, seepage, etc, but can't find anything. Any ideas?
