#423 of 731 Intermitten loss of power
Aug 26, 2008 (6:20 pm)
Over the last 3-4 days, my 1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo has gradually increased in intermitten loss of power. I notice that when it has not been driven for 10-12 hours it runs fine for 20-30 minutes. But if I turn it off, I notice a stumbling at start, shakes, low RPMs and little power. It will slowly pick up power, but if I increase gas pedal to quickly, it looses power and may eventually come to a stop. It continues to run, but at very low RPMs and stumbling. As I begin to pickup speed, it occasionally gives small backfires in rapid succession. if I increase the gas too much. I have changed fuel filter, plugs, wires, distributor cap and rotor. I have put half a tank of gas in from several different stations, thinking it was water in the gas. Help!?!

I have individual spark plug coils. So no wires to change. I have replaced four of the eight coil plugs and no change. Sounds different when it starts. All started when plugs were changed. I am at a loss.

This exact thing has happened to me about 6 times. I'm looking for an answer too...if you happen to find out anything about what it is, or what the fix is please email me at Cheley30yahoo.com. I have the Hemi if that matters?

#427 of 731 Grand Cherokee and Cooling....go figure - Fan issues

ok...I've replaced the relay a couple times now but that doesn't seem to be the issue. I noticed that the fan wasn't running at all after I put a new relay in so I just spun it a bit by hand and it started right up....doesn't seem to be running quite as fast as it should. Is this something that just needs lubrication? Or do I need a new fan? Getting tired of driving around Austin with the heat on;)

I have a 2004 Jeep Cherokee Laredo v6 and have been having problems for the past couple of months first the car shakes very bad when i get to 45MPH and if i put it in overdrive it will stop until 65 MPH and then i have to take it back out of overdrive also if i dont take it back out of overdrive and get to 70MPH the govenor will turn on and i will have no control of the speed until it goes back down to 60MPH and recently the engine has been cutting off randomly while driving at low speeds 15-25MPH not sure what to do besides taking it to a mechanic but wanted to check online first any ideas?
