#1 of 1240 cold weather starting problem
Oct 18, 2006 (11:47 am)
My 95 grand cherokee starts fine until the weather starts to turn cold below 52 degrees, then when you try to start it it turns over but stalls right off , it sound like the gas is being shut off, after sometimes 10 or better tries it finally starts like it never had a problem at all, and after it does start the jeep will start fine for the rest of the day. My son is a tech at a jeep dealership and say's it is the first like this he has run into, he has tried many different things to try to correct this problem, but it is still happening , has anyone run into this problem?? help!!

i have the same problem, i cleaned out the throttle body and replaced the a censor but still no luck i have learned that if you try and start the jeep by giving it gas then it will start after that put it in gear and drive it the whole time leave your foot on the gas when you hit second gear it will run fine on its own at an idol. tell me if you have heard any way to fix it

I am experiencing exact same problem with my 1996 GC. Any ideas how to fix this? I have owned this car since 1998 and no problems of this type until now.

I am working on a 1990 grand cherokee 4.0 engine with new plugs & wires. It fires off like it suppose to but after running a few seconds it stumbles, backfires ,runs very rough. It only lasts few minutes then it starts to run fine with no problems at all. fuel pressure is very good and no codes in the computer system.. any ideas that may lead me to the cause .............
#5 of 1240 98 Jeep Grand stalled on freeway and won't start?
Jun 18, 2007 (2:59 pm)
Hi, I was towing my boat, stopped to get gas for my jeep & 15 minutes down the freeway, everythings shuts off, the car basically stalls. I was able to pull over to the side. I tried starting it and it just wouldn't start. Almost seemed out of gas (but I just filled the tank). Also, the gas gage showed empty. Strange, since I just filled. Tow truck driver tried jumping the battery to see if it would start (even though the battery worked fine) and it just wouldn't start. The engine turns over but it just start. It sounds like it wasnt to start, but it just acts like it is out of gas. Any ideas? I am really wanting to get it up and running! Thanks. it is a 5.8L/5.9L V8
#6 of 1240 problem with hot weather start
Jul 19, 2007 (4:04 pm)
2001 jeep cherokee 6 cylinder 4x4 man trans. After driving around for 30 min to an hour on hot days the eng sounds like it re starts on 5 cylinders. The truck starts to shake and the eng code is # 3 cylinder misfire. I have changed the plugs and coil module. I think it could be a eng computer problem any Ideas.
#7 of 1240 starting/idle problem
Jul 23, 2007 (12:21 pm)
Hi all, have a 2000 Grand Cherokee 4.7 V8. had no real problems until today, pulled over for five minutes, engine off, head lamps on. would not turn over when I went to start it. ( battery recently flat due to wife! ) Got it started with jump leads and sounded awful, not firing on all cylinders and would not idle AT ALL. Whiring/slight screeching somewhere also.Had to be towed home!
Car has had recent LPG conversion. Switch to petrol, same problem. Any ideas????

Hello to all. I have a 2001 Sport and it's in great shape. No issues and no engine lights going on. This morning she just wouldn't start. Sounds strong when I hit the ignition, but just won't turn. I didn't see a code show up, but "no bus" did show. How seriuos is this, and what do I need to do to get her fixed. THANKS
