#702 of 1241 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee Start up problem
Jun 09, 2010 (7:21 am)
Have a 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee. When I turn the ignitions to start it up it won;t turn on. The lights/radio work though. With key turned all the way to start I put the car in Neutral and let it roll for 3 - 5 seconds. The place it back in Park and then it turns on just fine (Most of the time).
I'm not getting any error codes or a check engine light.
Has anyone else had this issue?

could be your shifter is not seating it self properly in PARK. if the car thinks it is not in park, it will not start...
#704 of 1241 93 Jeep GC rough start if warm
Jun 11, 2010 (1:20 pm)
Hey guys, my 1993 Grand Cherokee starts fine then it is cold. As soon as I have to crank it up then it is warm it need some time before it starts. I changed the spark plugs and the oil filter. After each work it started 3 or 4 times finde before the old trouble came back.
Who had the same problem and know what to do.
Thanks in advance.
#705 of 1241 jeep running problems.. please help!

my '97 jeep cherokee is having some running problems. it started when i couldnt get it to start and/or run from a parking lot without keeping my foot on the gas.. i checked the fuel injectors and the coil, both were working fine, so i replaced the sparkplugs. that didnt work. then i replaced the air idle sensor, throttle sensor, and wires because it would not keep idle and reved on its own. it seemed to run fine, no more stalling when i went to accellerate, but i replaced the rotor cap and button anway. i thought i fixed the problem, but now when i let the rpms abruptly stop (stomping on the excelerator quickly and letting it go) it dies when the rpm gauge goes down. im at my wits end, please help!

very easy to replace on my 2000 gc 4.7 v8....
#707 of 1241 stalling/idle not right
Jul 15, 2010 (11:24 pm)
i have a 94 jeep cherokee ltd. i have had all the basic tuneup done wires,plugs distributor cap, fuel filter, i had piston changed pick up coil valves checked for leeks. it has about 100 thousand miles and it is a 5.2 v8. for the past three weeks it has been stalling out. temperature gauge is within normal range. the fuel pump is only a few years old. i have not put a fuel temp gauge on it yet. it will run for a while and then stall out. it starts back up after about 10 or 15 min and sometimes it will run a bit longer and sometimes it doesn't. no one seems to know what the problem is and i am not trying to spend a fortune for another mechanic. i have also been reading a lot of forums and this seems to be a problem with this car. can you please tell me what I might need to do to fix this. i do not think it is the fuel pump because when you put the key in and turn it, i had someone laying underneath to see if they could here it come on and it does. please help. i am at a loss. thanks

i agree.... cps crankshaft position sensor... a 20 minute install ... think its about a $30 - $35 part. plus if thats not it, that is about mileage they go out. so you would be heading off another problem before it happens

#711 of 1241 Fast idle when breaking
Jul 16, 2010 (3:14 pm)
Have a 3.7 6cyl Laredo and when breaking the engine steps up its idle as though I am also stepping on the gas slightly but am not.
No check engine lights. Any idea what the cause could be?
