I have a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4.7 litre V8 engine and have had it in the shop and have been shopping around for a rebuilt engine at the request of the mechanic I use. When the problem occurred the temp gauge maxed out twice then it started making a clanking noise so I pulled over and had it towed to my garage.The mechanic said it would be less expensive purchasing a rebuilt motor for it rather than spending the time finding what the problem is and then fix it.Any resemblances or suggestions would greatly help ( my pocket book also)

Unreal...the last time mine was in (about 2 weeks ago) they told me this was a combination of the MDS, the torque converter locking and unlocking and how lean they were running the engine. NO ANSWERS as to why it was not present when new nor any explanation as to why it has gotten worse.
NO WAY a "premium" vehicle that we paid money for should run like this. I could have purchased a 10K little puddle jumper that would not run like this. I am extremely disappointed with this running issue on this vehicle...it makes it worse that I love the looks, drive and features but will likely not buy Jeep again.

My 95 Jeep has a weird issue. the only way to start it is to turn the key to on position and wait until the fuel pump and auto shut off relays start clicking and then stop. Once the relays stop clicking it will start. I can shut it off and immediately restart but if i leave it off for more than a few minutes i have to wait until the relays start clicking and stop again before it will start. I notice if i leave the battery terminals off and let the computer reset this process doesn't take as long...any ideas?

I had the exact same problem with my 94 JGC. After replacing every sensor under the hood and my fuel pump, the result was the computer. After I replaced the computer it ran like new and it fires right up even in cold weather. Good luck.

Just fixed mine after trying foreever to fix it. It was the idle control motor. Has not been a problem since. They cleaned it and works great. 100 dollar fix

There is a backflow valve associated with the electric fuel pump. Failure of this valve allows all the fuel in the fuel line to drain back into the fuel tank. This requires the pump to run longer than normal to refill the line and supply fuel for starting.

Dec 16, 2011 (10:15 pm)
My jeep just started to lose the oil pressure and check gauges light comes on...this only happens when the motor is warm and in idle...example when I drive to and from work as I am halfway to work/home and stop at a light or traffic the oil gauge will start to drop and the check gauges light will flash. Has the right amount of oil....but the light goes away when I step on gas!?!?!
Was told this could be the oil pump???? Need help since I need to get this fixed but dont want to get screwed by dealership/repair shop and overpay if its something simple and easy fix. Help Please!!!

Which engine do you have? Have you tried putting it in neutral as you come to a light to see if the problem remains? Also, u mentioned that the check guages light comes on, but does the check engine light come on as well?
Once we have a little more info then we can research the problem for you. I know how it is to face expensive repair bills. -Chris

V8 4.7L H.O. JGC overland. I have tried putting it in neutral as coming to a stop, and the problem still remains. Check engine light never comes on, just the check gauges light!???? Thanks for your fast response.
