I have had my JGCL for about 6 months and when I stop, the rear end jerks like I was rearended, what could be the cause of this and also, when I tried to start it earlier it wouldn't turn over and stay started and would die after a few seconds and it took almost 10 minutes for the thing to start... I need help because no one has an answer for these problems..

Wanted to provide a quick update for the benefit of anyone with similar quadra-lift issues. The dealer discovered that the compressor went out, not sure why. They replaced it and everything is fine now.

I must apologize for being a wise-guy.
The 92-2004 models (ZJ and WJ) are equipped with the venerable 4.0 liter inline 6 (I6) engine. The WK (05-2010) and WK2 are both offered with V6 engines. The WK with the 3.7 liter, 215HP V6, and the WK2 with the new 3.6 liter Pentastar engine producing 290HP.
The 3.6 is now offered in almost all Chrysler, Doge and Jeep models, either standard or optional in depending on the vehicle. It is a thoroughly modern engine, producing anywhere between 280-305 HP, depending on the plumbing in multiple vehicles.
I tried to be a wise guy, telling a user there is no V6 engine in GC's. I meant the ZJ and WJ models, since those vehicles seem to need more repairs and maintenance than the newer models.
#4958 of 5143 jeep trunk floor
Nov 01, 2011 (5:51 pm)
Hello, is there anyway to remove the trunk floor? I spilled some liquid in the trunk and need to clean it out. I already have removed the cargo lid that accesses the spare tire nut, but I see there are odd looking screws in four places around the trunk area. It doesn't look like regular screws or allen wrench screws. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Joe
#4960 of 5143 removing the trunk floor.... can't.

Man. That is a new one.
The floor is welded in...and is part of the body/structure of the vehicle. If you are speaking of the carpet I suppose you can tear it out. If you do a good job, you can cut a new piece and install it. .
****I Googled it for you, checked at least 5 places, and the 4 screws were not mentioned. You need to know that THE GAS TANK IS UNDER THE SPARE TIRE. Do NOT cut out the metal floor unless you want a spark to catch the vehicle on FIRE!!****
There is no mention of a "procedeure" to cut it out, & furthermore I bet those screws hold the gas tank under the truck. I looked up gas tank removal, and this is what was mentioned:
"Remove the bolts which hold the tank against the bottom of the Cherokee with a socket wrench. Mounting bolts are located at the back and at the front of the tank"
Did you spill gas in the trunk..like a gas can fell over? Hard to get those fumes out. Good luck.

cski, thanks for your reply and concern. First off, I have a 2005 JGC I failed to mention that in my first post. This might be the last time I pick up food for the family parties. I had a large seafood tray called Zuppa di Pesce. It's like a soup. OF course, I took precautions with a drop cloth underneath but it wasn't enough. I shampooed the carpet but I know some fell through the creases around the outskirts of the trunk. Just imagine that stench! I might be out of luck if it's welded but I will look again later today. I will keep you posted with the results. Thanks, Joe
#4962 of 5143 Oh jeez...Fish? Steam Clean it!
Nov 02, 2011 (6:34 am)
Well, just steam clean the whole trunk area. I would use one of the industrial units that can be rented at grocery stores.
I will be a lot cheaper than cutting out the carpet!
It's either that, or 10 bottles of Febreeze mixed with those little pine-tree mirror things...

I'd skip the pine-trees and their chemical out-gassing.
Fresh coffee grounds are great for masking odors while the Febreeze or steam cleaner works, but you have to replenish them every few days.
