#4469 of 5143 Shutting off and Low oil pressure on dashboard
May 30, 2009 (1:01 pm)
I have purchased a used 2000 jeep grand cherokee laredo 4.0l 6 cyl with 132,000 miles on it.I have been having problems with it shutting off on me,have noticed that the oil pressure on the dashboard appears to stay on or near 0.The only time that it will go up to the halfway mark is if i am driving but once i come to a stop it goes back down again.Please help me.
I have purchased a New Oil pressure switch ,Fuel Pressure Regulator,Complete Fuel Pump Assembly,Oil Pump Assembly,Oil Pan Gasket,Have replaced the Oil,Oil Filter on it twice.
I am in need of a tune up,will try to do that within the week.I would appreciate any help on this matter as i need this vehicle to get to work or to assist me in finding work where there isn't any public transportation available.

#4472 of 5143 Transmission only moves the car at high RPMs.
Jun 05, 2009 (11:27 am)
I just purchase a 1999 Jeep Cherokee, 6 cil and 2 WD. The transmission only moves the vehicle when rev up at high RPMs. Can anyone provide input as to the possible causes of this problem before I pay someone to rebuild the transmission?
Also, I look under the transmission and the drain plug has a “DII” written on it. Does this mean the transmission uses Dextron II ATF? I read in other posts and in the Auto zone website that 1999 Jeep model uses ATF-4 with the 30RH transmission or Mercon V, Castrol domestic multi vehicle ATF, and Castrol high mileage ATF with the AW-4 transmission.
Lastly, is there any way to drain the torque converter without any machinery?
Thank you all for your advice,

These trans have some computer control exerted on them. Try this. Take the negative battery cable off. let set 5 min or so. reconnect. put key in switch and with your foot on the brake turn key(not to start)--on off, on off, on off, release the foot brake. start engine and see if trans engages a low RPM. The steps you have performed cause a reset of the computer---it has cured problems in many instances.

#4475 of 5143 oxygen sensor location 1995 5.2 L
Jun 11, 2009 (7:11 am)
Have a 1995 jeep grand cherokee with V-8, 318 cid.
(5.2 L). Can not find location of the oxygen sensor to replace it. Can anyone tell me where it is. Is access from top or under side? Can I get to it without other parts removal?
Thanks for any help.

96 grand Cherokee, I had the coolant sensor replaced and now I need to know how to reset the panel.

Should be located in front exhaust pipe near where it ties into exhaust manifold. A secondary downstream sensor will be located after the cat converter.

Thanks for the comeback. I will get under again and look. It must be on the right side manifold and where the crossover pipe to the left side is. Must be on the top side of pipe where it is hard to see. Thanks again.
