Huh. Like you, I've read a ton of forums where people have had the same issues with no resolution, or have spent a lot of time and money trying to fix it. I noticed last night that my exhaust smells rich, so this tells me that it could be a sensor or perhaps a leaky vacuum hose. I hope you can find an answer. I actually had a stalling issue with my 96 GC I-6 with 120,000 miles. It ended up being one of the O2 sensors.

I just found out that my Jeep has 4 oxygen sensors. 2 on the front (intake side) and 2 on the back,(exhaust side) after the Catalytic Converter.
So, if you come across a definite fix, I would be grateful. I have this image in my head of the service writer telling me what I already know. "Well sir, it is one of your sensors". Well, so why did I give you $80.00 to diagnose it? I bet the screen on the code computer actually says "replace all sensors, and ECM" Frustrating. The ECM alone is $1k.
So, as long as it runs I am going to limp it until a definite solution rears its head.
In the meantime, my mom sold her 2000 6 cylinder WJ 6 months ago, and bought a Kia Forte'. I think I am on my way to buying an Elantra myself.
Sad that America can't build a truck worth keeping after 5 years.
#4907 of 5134 JGC 2002 laredo 4x4
Jul 01, 2011 (5:11 pm)
Emission Light coming on; this happened to me in my 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo about a year ago, the guy at pep boys checked the diagnostic and told me thats what it said, he asked if i had driven through a lot of big puddles/water and i had he said thats probably what did it. I did not worry about if after that and eventually it went away.
Question: Bought my JGC Laredo 4x4 at 72000 miles, it has 114000 miles now, only problems i have had is the radiator fan went bad twice in a row so the car was overheating but was only about 75$ each time..... and the past few months the AC is not cold its basically whatever outside temp is, and lately thats in the 90's --- i bought the r134 refill but the gauge said it was full so i did it anyways still nothing, pep boys said probably the compressor , any thoughts?
Question: also is this 2002 JGC likely to have many other problems, trying to sell it since i am worried from what i have heard but i have never really had any problems, can anyone guess that i might or what might go bad? Also, what kind of big maintenance should i get done to it (dont know anything about cars) so dont know what i should get done, i get all the oil changes and got new tires.
Thanks for any help!

Dd ever get any resolution to your Jeep issue, my son has 1994 Grand Cherokee that is doing same thing. Starts off great, but hard to get it to shift from 1st to 2nd...etc. Thanks, Mike
#4909 of 5134 I have a 99.
Jul 07, 2011 (6:34 am)
The 99 is completely different from the 95. Different trans, engine, space frame, well, everyting.
My problem is the Jeep wants to stall as I am slowing to stop. It has no problem shifting at all. It is an oxygen sensor most likely on mine.
I hope you know the 95' to 98 models had lots of transmission issues. Sorry I cant help.

Well, I can tell you that I have 7k in mine since purchased.(It is a 99 V8 4x4) It had 89k when I bought it. Now it has 134,000. It needs a LF hub bearing, has a coolant leak, and it wants to stall at stoplights. I would NOT buy this vehicle again, or recommend one to a friend. I do like the V8 grunt and it was unstoppable in two years of snowstorms. It eats tires, transmission solenoids, sensors, fan belts, passenger rear brake light issues. On and on.
I just paid it off in April. It ran for a month and then started having the aforementioned problems. Garbage.

How old is the battery and alternator? If they are stock then replace the battery and clean the leads. See if the problem goes away. If not take it to the dealer. They know for SURE what the problems are, so if u plan on keeping it get a full checkout.
#4913 of 5134 2011 JGC observations and questions
Jul 13, 2011 (9:27 pm)
Purchased a new 2011 JGC Overland several weeks ago, and love it. I would have never in my wildest dreams have guessed that I'd own a Jeep. Always thought the Rubicons and souped up old CJ's were cool, but never owned a Jeep and never really thought about them. Until I saw their ads on TV and saw how nice the interiors were; then saw a video of Bob Lutz talking about how their interiors rivaled those of European luxury brands. Decided to check out the JGC and ditched my Acura TL! I love the ride - very comfortable (sorry, no serious off-roading for me), the stereo system, the panoramic roof, the stitching on the leather and...love the exterior design. Everyone that sees it is shocked it's a Jeep. My next door neighbor dropped $75k on a BMW 5 series, and he thought I purchased an Audi SUV. When I told him I "only" paid $40k for it, his jaw hit the driveway. I am a little nervous about long-term quality (last two vehicles were Acura/Honda, never had an issue), so I'm still thinking about the extended warranty.
I have a couple questions and hoping someone can help me out.
1) When I'm moving slowly, say in and out of the driveway/garage, I hear a minor "clicking." Any idea what this is? It doesn't seem to affect performance at all.
2) I've learned that my Sprint HTC Droid phone doesn't pair with the UConnect system. Besides switching phones, any thoughts on a way to resolve this?
3) Any recommendations for where to purchase an extended warranty? The dealer offered me one, but I'm always wary of their prices. I'd at least like to do a little comparison shopping.

Your happiness reminds me of the day I brought my 99 Laredo V8 home. It also reminds me of the day after where I went 4 a drive & second gear decided to take a break. Literally. After $7000 worth of service on it (90% covered by warranty), the check engine light finally took a long, 20k nap.
This was four years ago, I only paid $6700 for it, & I basically got a really nice used truck with 89k.
Well, it is expensive to service due to it's 4x4 system, and now I have a stalling issue and a coolant leak. The gas mileage is awful, it drives like a pig, it's steering is numb and the brakes require a heavy foot to push. I am prepping it for sale. my kids are older and I no longer need as much space, so I think I have earned a Subaru WRX or a Ford Focus ST, & I am going to buy it at the end of December, where 4x4's sell well and I can get a great deal on a 2011 or a lightly used 2010. I am going to do my homework this time, and buy a really good, reliable, inexpensive to drive car. Congrats on your new truck. I hope you bought the 6 cyl for good mileage, or the V8 if you wanna haul ass (and a boat).
