#413 of 729 1999 Grand Cherokee Miss Fire on Inclines only.
Aug 17, 2008 (10:48 pm)
I have a 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4x4, 4.7v8. I have started to get a miss while driving on inclines at a speed of 60mph and up. Gas mileage has gotten poor.2 mechanics have put on an engine diagnostic check and found no codes. One mechanic was at a local dodge dealership. Took it for a test ride, with computer hooked up, felt and observed the miss fire and still has no clue what it is because of no codes. Told me I was better of if it quit all together, then they would have a better idea. I cant afford to wait til that happens. Can anyone help? I dont know what else to do. Dont want to cause more damage to the engine.

I have 160000 miles on it. If the o2 sensor is going out would it show up on the diagnostic check? I will give it a try. I am sure they do need changed. I appreciate the advice!!!

#418 of 729 2006 Grand Cherokee Limited - ocasionally engine goes off when driving 5kms

I own a 2006 Grand Cherokee Limited with 15000 kms, I had it for the last 8 month (very impressive vehicle), in the last couple of month in two separate occasions when driving below 5kms the engine suddenly went off, I only get the hand brake light on, immediately turn the key on and the engine starts as if nothing had happened.
Has anyone got a suggestion?

something important that I must mentioned is that this problem only happened when I was about to pull over, once happened at the traffic lights and another time at the car park.

I had a miss at 60mph and up with my 1999 grand cherokee as well. Not 02 sensor that fixed it. Took it to Jeep Dealer and they did not know, finally a transmission shop figured it out. It was bad tires causing the transfer case to shift in and out of four wheel drive. Replaced tires and the problem went away.

Did you change the wires as well? I would replace them . During the change you may have developed a crack in one which arcs at high speed...

I'm wondering if anyone can provide a picture, diagram or description of the TPS location on a Jeep Grand Cherokee? Is this part easy to install? Any words of wisdom would be appreciated.
I'm trying to fix this check engine light on a tight budget and this is what the code Auto Zone pulled for me pointed to.
