Question about 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

Basically runs great...randomly shuts down while

Basically runs great, and can run great for long period, like all day...randomly shuts down while driving (still elec power) and usually comes back up after a several seconds. Rare occasions it backfires (at least once I know it was raining...This is my friends car so I don't know if backfire is always in the rain, but I haven't experienced the backfire and I've been riding in it a lot lately) Sometimes will chug /miss a little.

With what you say,get the fuel filter checked.Cheapest and easiest place to start.Its on the chassis rail,back near the fuel tank.Hope this helps

Testimonial: "I believe this advice was right on. I actually changed the filter right after I wrote this question. The gas from the front line was black."

Intermittant starts running crappy and tcl light comes on


When the TCL light is on usually means there's a problem with the traction control, need to have inspected real soon. Could be a speed sensor.

My cars engine, battery, and oil lights are on. HELP!


well when the car shuts off or stalls your check engine , oil . battery lights are all going to come on the oil light is telling you there is no oil pressure due to the car not running the battery light is going to come on due to the alternator not pushing any juice because the car is not running and the check engine light also now. check under the car and make sure that your moter did not cut,rip or fray any wires comming from the starter area. this could be a big problem and make lights flicker and the car to run funny.

Car just turns off, and will not come back on untill i play with cables.


The old 240's had poor insulation on the engine bay wiring, particularly the alternator and starter loom that runs under the engine. It sounds like your loom has deteriorated. Go to an auto electrician to get it checked out properly.

Fuel keeps cutting in and out


If it's an electrical problem, it's most likely your fuel relay. Try metering your fuel relay with a voltage meter. If you have voltage coming in, but not going out, then your relay is bad. If your relay is ok, chances are you either have a short in your wiring or your fuel pump is starting to give out on you. Your best bet's on the relay though. Hope this helps solve your problem. Have a great day!
