#3977 of 5143 2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee problems
Mar 03, 2008 (8:27 am)
I have a 2003 JGC that I bought used 2 years ago..it has 70,000 miles on it. Since July I have put over 5k into this car. Today while driving, my gas gauge went from 1/2 tank to E and the need gas light came on and I lost RPM'S..it seemed to correct itself and then I went to a gas station to get gas just in case, then after that it kept losing rpms and it stalled and chugged the whole way to work..this happened before and the mechanic said it was the fuel pump (that happened in November with the exception of the gas gauge)), we just got it back 3 weeks ago and that time it was stalling in reverse and sometimes drive.
Can anyone help???

was your )2 sensor recently (3 years) replaced? Mine did the exact same thing. I had a "universal" )2 sensor put in. It shorted out and fried my computer. Have them check that and clean all sensors.
#3979 of 5143 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo rear differential gear leak
Mar 04, 2008 (6:30 am)
Hello there! I am wondering if anyone knows the cost or maintenance that will accompany a leak of gear oil coming what looks like from the seal of the rear gear box. Also, is there a "reserve" so it doesn't leak dry? I plan to get it fixed as soon as possible but would like to know what I may be up against first, thanks!

book says to remove rear wheels, brakes and calipers.Drop driveline. Use tools # 6958(holder) C-452 ( Remover) and (Wrench) C-3281 to remove the rear yoke to access the seal. Remove seal with any tool that can pull it out. Use toolsC-3972-A (seal installer and handle C-4171 to install new seal. Use Installer W-162-D, Cup 8109 and Holder 6958 to reinstall the yoke.. The differential housing dips below the lower seal line so there will be oil in the rearend. It is vented so no pressure builds up. The rotation of the ring gear will whip oil upon the diff bearing. The bearing, however will not be submerged in oil as it would be without the leak. Get ready to spend a few bucks!!!!! S Swann-Odessa, tx ( I do not know why the wheels and brakes have to be removed as they are not in the way of seal replacement)

Thanks so much. I'm waiting for a quote now from Cottman Transmission. WOW! The manager made it sound like it would be a simple thing, but obviously not. I still don't have a call back yet and it's been almost 4 hours!
#3982 of 5143 2003 grand cherokee overheating/ fan doesnt turn on.
Mar 05, 2008 (9:51 pm)
just started overheating the other day, car only has 20,000 miles on it. we thought that the fan may of been the problem it doesn't run by its self but fan does work when it is hard wired too the battery. were thinking about checking the temp/sensors or relays but just wondering if anyone has had this problem and has the knowledge to fix it.

Mar 06, 2008 (6:30 pm)
A couple of weeks ago the power auto entry/exit stopped working. Then tonight the lights in the dash started flickering on and off. Then the interior lights started coming on and staying on for a few seconds before going off. Shortly after this all the interior lights came on and stayed on for the remainder of my drive. We are going to take it in to have it looked at but I was wondering if anyone else had the same experience and what the cause was.
#3985 of 5143 96 Jeep GC - driver door lock broken
Mar 10, 2008 (9:12 am)
Ive got a 96 Jeep Grand Cherokee with 156k miles. Just last week I went to close the drivers door and a bolt with a star head (not a phillips head) popped out of the door and what looks to me that the latching mechanism inside the door broke from the body of the door. Is this fixable/weldable? or will i need to get a new used door?

I had a similar problem with my interior lights. What the cause for me was that the button switch when i close the door was not pushing the button in all the way. I was able to pull on the door and the lights went out and then when i let go, lights came on. My quick fix was to tape a small piece of cardboard to the door where the switch would hit and that did it.
but for me, this is related to my problem that i posted today.
