#227 of 276 Re: 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee starting problems... [timdooling]
Mar 20, 2011 (8:58 pm)
Finally!!! It's running...knock on wood.. It was the Crankshaft Position Sensor.. I believe it was not positioned correctly the first time. I had someone else redo it and bingo.. it stalled a little in the beginning then stopped. he said the car needed to recalibrate itself because of all the parts that I changed and now it runs great...
It's burning a lot of gas now, I'm averaging $20/day.
I believe the problem might be that it's reving too high. The neighbours could hear my car running when it's warming up in the morning.
I have to look into that now...
Thanks for all your help..
#228 of 276 GJ Laredo Issue
Mar 24, 2011 (11:24 am)
I have a 2002 Grand Cherokee Laredo, six cylinder. Just recently I've had the following issues. I noticed yesterday that when I went to start the car, it seemed as if the battery was dead. You could hear clicking. After a minute or so, this went away and the car would crant, just not start. I eventually pumped the throttle and it started rough...stall, repeat. After a few minutes, it stayed running, but only tacking about 400rpm. You could tell it just wanted to stall. Traffic lights, same thing. When you are traveling, there doesn't seem to be any issues. Any thoughts?
I can tell you that I replaced the clock spring about three weeks ago along with the turn signal handle/headlights arm that attaches to the steering column. Not sure this is related.

#232 of 276 98 jeep struggles starting
Jul 21, 2011 (8:29 am)
i noticed over the weekend that my jeep has struggling starting. i think it may be the starter. it takes a few seconds to turnover. i'm having it checked out tomorrow but i'm thinking it could be the starter or the alternator. thoughts? i'm trying to let this truck survive until jan or feb of 2012. i've had it since 2000.
#233 of 276 Feels like car will die but then it comes back to normal

My 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee lurched back and forth a couple times like the engine was going to die, then went back to normal then lurched again. It happened a few separate times over the last three to four weeks. Any ideas on the cause?

I really don't know but it may not hurt to disconnect the battery which should reset the computer. Try to eliminate the electronics. I'm no expert though.

#236 of 276 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo battery drain.
Jul 23, 2011 (8:46 pm)
I'm hoping you can help me figure out what is going on in my Jeep. A bit of history...Bought Jeep in 2003 and paid off in 2006. The only problems were high mileage (95,000 at purchase), a corroded battery terminal (replaced), and the (I suspect) Throttle Control Positioner is weak. Have taken very good care of care (oil changes, tune-ups, tires, etc) and it has neber really let me down.
Something is causing a power drain and sucking brand new batteries dry in as little as 1 day or as slow as 2 weeks. I removed or disconeccted items such as my radio, power outlets, etc. I've checked every fuse incase something had blocked a fuse slot open. The alternator is fine and I cannot find any lose wiring or poor contacts.
Any ideas? Is it possible for the solenoid to "hang" and cause the drain? How would i test it? Could it be something in the throttle control positioner since i keep putting of repairing it?
Any ideas would be most appreciated. I have been diagnosed with severe COPD and my Dr. does not want me to work so i cannot afford a mechanic and i cannot afford a new car either 9this one is paid off, looks decent, and it's been good to me).
Thanks to all of you.
