Having problems with your 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee ?
JEEP STOPPED RUNNING WHILE DRIVING WILL ONLY CRANK
\015 ONE DAY WHILE DRIVING DOWN THE FREEWAY, MY 96 JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE STOPPED RUNNING LIKE IT WAS OUT OF GAS. I REPLACED THE FUEL PUMP THINKING THAT IT WAS THE PROBLEM BUT THE JEEP JUST CRANKS LIKE IT IS GETTING NO FUEL. REPLACED RELAY WITH WORKING ONE ALSO BUT STILL DOES NOT START. COULD CRANKCASE SENSOR BE THE PROBLEM OR SOMETHING ELSE? THANKS.\015
The\012Engine and Automatic Transmission (not applicable to manual\012transmissions) in this vehicles drive train are fully electronically\012controlled by a computer called the PCM and TCM (Power Train Control\012Module, Transmission Control Module). When a problem like this or\012other drive-ability related problems occurs the computer stores a\012record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this,\012like the fuel pump, engine coolant temperature sensor and MAF sensor\012for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read\012these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a\012special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform\012the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s)\012DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL A TRAINED TECHNICAIN HAS DIAGNOSED\012THE PROBLEM TO AVOID SPENDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON PARTS THAT\012MAY NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM. Also always check fuel pressure for\012correct spec for your make and engine type.
