did you ever figure out the problem with the intermittent stalling ?
I have a 1997 jeep grand cherokee limited, and I am having the same problem..
Any suggestions ???
I have replaced the battery, the Distributor Cap, rotor and the pick-up coil. It ran fine for 1 weeks, not one single problem. Then one night about 5 miles from home pulled up to stop light and the jeep just died. Ever since then the problem has gotten worse to now we can't drive it at all.
Any suggestions ???

Try the coil pack and spark plugs? is the engine souding ok? does it miss fire? my problem with the jeep was to do with a switch on the driver side window. Once this was fixed, the car worked fine. Do you have other problems?

I have a 2003 4.7 jepp grand Cherokee with a 601 error. The Jeep runs fine. I replaced the ecu and the new one, after being reset, started one time then develope the same 601 error. After all resets it last only one start. The jeep has has been running fine, with this error, for a year. It acts like there is a virous that keeps reinfecting the ECU.
#4457 of 5143 Odd rotor size? 1999 Jeep Cherokee Sport
May 22, 2009 (6:45 pm)
I have a 1999 Jeep Cherokee Sport. Bought new rotors, and after putting them on the front wheels wouldn't turn.
I checked the sizes and the "stock" rotors are 1/2" (roughly) smaller in diameter. Auto Zone and a belvy of other places cannot help me. Maybe someone here has a part number or knows what they should be?
The "stock" rotors given as replacements were 3115's (305mm), the old rotors appear to be 265-275mm. Same hat size and overall dimensions as the 3115's, just smaller diameter.
We have searched and opened 20 boxes at Auto Zone (love those folks there) with no luck.
Can anyone help?
#4458 of 5143 Squeakey Grand Cherokee
May 24, 2009 (6:33 am)
I have a 1996 4x2 Grand Cherokee Laredo. A couple of weeks ago I noticed a squeak coming from the rear only when I am driving forward. It does not do it in reverse. As the weeks go by it has gotten allot louder and I can not tell where it is coming from. As far as I can tell, it is coming from the rear and is loud. Any ideas or help would be very much appreciated. Thanks.

The "99" through "04" GC has a known fault with the heater blend air doors, especially the automatic temperature control heaters, you may be experiencing this problem, symptoms are no heat on passenger side or drivers side or maybe heat on one and not the other, this is an expensive fix if it is the problem as the dash has to be pulled, but not all is lost, there is a guy on ebay who sells a fix kit you can install from under the dash it works and fixes problem for a fraction of the dealer cost, hope this helps, WKjeeps.com has an article about this problem.

#4460 of 5143 grand Cherokee front dif problems
May 25, 2009 (10:11 am)
IU have a 98 Grand Cherokee that keeps blowing front diffs. Two in the last two weeks! I also have a 94 Cherokee scout that Im about to junk. Would it be poss ible to install the transfer case and front diff from the scout to the
grand. I really hate the full time 4 wheel drive on the Grand to start with! I was in a pinch and got the Grand Cherokee for a good price paid $2000 and now have an additional $3000 into it. I was just going to put another junk yard dif in it and sell it but I dont want to screw someone else.

I also have a '98 GCLtd and I removed the front drive completely. As I only use it as a road car I didn't see the need for 4x4. Take out both front drive axles but retain the stub axles to the wheels. Remove the prop shaft from between the diff and transfer case. You then have a perfectly good road car, with perhaps a little understeer, with less front end noise and no prancing about when starting off.
