#538 of 1069 JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE 5.2 4x4 PCV IDLE PROBLEMS!!!
Jul 14, 2009 (1:16 pm)
I have a 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee Lerado 4x4 all wheel drive with a 5.2 Liter(318) engine. Computer only throws an end code when trying to read with key turned 3 times and Auto Zone and Advanced Auto both said it's too old to read the codes with their meter. Last year I replaced the Cap and rotor along with the spark plugs and wire and now Within 2 weeks I have Replaced the Spark Plugs, Trottle Position Sensor, Air Idle Control Sensor, fuel filter, fuel pump checks out fine, PCV and hose that connects it to the engine were replaced twice in a week, cleaned all 8 fuel injectors and replaced all 16 of their O-Rings. fuel rail pressure is and was before cleaning injectors, exactly in spec 31 psi off and 39 psi when started. being despirate to try anything we added SeaFoam to the Valve cover and gas tank as a last resort and yet STILL after all of this it has a rough shaking my Jeep idle! When the PCV hose is hooked up, it starts and stalls, when you disconnect the PCV from the hose it stays running with the sluggish rough idle but it is the only way to keep it running! The minute you plug in the PCV the engine dies and doesn't want to restart until it's unplugged again! HELP ME PLEASE, I LOVE MY JEEP!!!

2009 grand Cherokee (14K miles) stalls when slowing down for off ramps or lights
dealer has replaced computer and ignition - did 3rd attempt for lemon law but they can not make it die so nothing wrong with it - we can not make it happen but it has died since computer fixed. now waiting for lemon cases to move forward due to sale of Chrysler.
Any other ideas of what we can check to prove there is an issue?

I had the EXACT same problem yesterday. My issue began after the vehicle was running. I heard a loud pop from the radio speakers and observed the voltage gauge floating while driving. After I got home and turned the Jeep off, it would not crank. No interior or brake lights, nothing at all that indicated I even had a battery connected. All of my gauges were pulsing and flipping over wildly with or without the key in the ignition and I could hear a faint clicking noise timed perfectly with the pulsing of the gauges. I let it sit for about an hour and it finally looked normal on the dash and sure enough - it turned over fine and all my gauges are back to normal. Even the pre-sets on the radio are still there. The only noticeable difference is that my clock on the radio is wrong.
Did you ever find out the problem?
Has anyone else encountered this problem and if so - what's my next step in troubleshooting this issue?
Same vehicle - 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited (83k)
I need help!!!

Not a clue. still working the issue. b/c it's hard to duplicate the problem at will, it's hard to narrow down.

#544 of 1069 96 Jeep Grand Cherokee stalling out on me..

I have a 96 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo, well recently in the mornings after starting and driving to my first stop or red light when stopped and waiting the Jeep will die. After putting it in Park it starts back up and then I drive it down the road a few miles and it doesnt happen again. All through the day it doesnt happen again. If it sits for overnight or for several hours, the first start and drive is when it seems to happen. I thought it might be just water in the tank or fuel line but have ruled this out. Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks

My 1996 4.0 Grand Cherokee had an intermitnet hesitation while driving at freeway speeds. Never completely stalled. Installed a new craknshaft position sensor and that cured the problem. A couple of months later it would have a hard time starting and run poorly until it would not start at all. Installed a new fuel pump assembly and that took care of the problem. Fuel pump assembly is expensive because it includes fuel gauge sensor and other stuff. Around $425.00 for the part. Another stupid design. Good luck.

You should look up the word stalling, rough idle. There have been many threads; one of which includes the possibility of needing a new computer becuase of some improper bolt wear. The new computer solved mine, not for cheap, though.
