I had an extended warranty. I live in a condo so I no longer have a garage to do major work. Plus, my 99 is a WJ and has the 4.7 V8, which is a different power-train than yours. That's why I can't get specific. Sorry. Buying a Chiltons manual is the very best thing you can do. It has step-by-step instructions on repair/replace of every component.
how did you fix it?
I am the owner of a 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee Lerado, and I have been having all sorts of problems with it. Electrical systems in my car have started to fail, one after another. It started with the radio and the interior lights, and has spread to the power locks and the car will no longer start. Also, the door makes a loud repeated clicking noise when it is opened, and ...

First of all I connected the battery backwards. When the spark occurred I immediately disconnected the cables. Now when I take the key out of the ignition a clicking noise comes from the glove box. The clicking stops when I close the door. I removed #5 fuse but now the door locks don't work, nor do the inside lights...Any idea what I need to do. Any help will be greatly appreciated. ...

my 1996 gc laredo w 218.000 miles has been dying while driving or coming to a stop. The oil pressure dropped to zero just before. No "check engine light". I could restart it immediately dropping into neutral while coasting along. this worked good on freeways but it's stressful to say the least. Have had my mechanic replace coolant sensor, temp sensor, crank position sensor & new battery & belt. Display kept ... Read More
Well first things first...you want to start with the most basic, most importantly, cheapest things first. (I just realized how old this post is...lol...still) If the fuel pump goes out it won't crank at all...you can turn the key to the ON position just before trying to start it. You should hear the fuel pump kick on for just a sec or two at the rear of the vehicle (it is ... Read More
I have a 1994 JGC with the same engine. It has nearly 300,000 miles on the original engine. My oil pressure gauge goes from 0 - 80 at any given time with no apparent reason. Instead of relying on the gauge I rely on the performance of the engine. Oil and filter changes every 3500 miles and everything has been fine since I bought my Jeep 15 years ago. My mechanic ...

Dd ever get any resolution to your Jeep issue, my son has 1994 Grand Cherokee that is doing same thing. Starts off great, but hard to get it to shift from 1st to 2nd...etc. Thanks, Mike
I just had the computer alternator and battery replaced in my 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited V8 4.2 MFI motor. Now i am hearing a noise that is between a chattering lifter and exhaust leak when i am driving not sitting still it just started on my way home from work any ideas.
I had the same problem just in the last 6 months my 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee limited was doing the same thing and the ticking noise was actually the auto shutdown relay and the computer needed to be replaced even after it was reset not saying this is 100 percent your issue just going from experience.
Hi. Got the Jeep from my dad. He apparently had problems with the driver door, because it looks like the bottom hinge has been re-welded back onto the door itself. Now, the weld has broken off, and the door doesn't close all the way. My husband had to take the bottom pin out of the hinge, just to get the door to drop into place. It still does not close all ...

I have a 97 JGC with 4.0 L I6 and mine works this way. My tension adjustment bolt is attached to the power steering bracket. It is a very long bolt mounted at a 45 deg angle relative to the pump (/). You have to loosen the pump mounting bolts and then loosen or tighthen the tension bolt to adjust belt tension. If you can't get the belt off I suggest ... Read More
how do you remove the serpentine belt?
It may be circuit breaker or relay that's oscillating (turning on/off repeatedly). In my 97 JGC the internal fuse panel is in the kick board underneath the glover compartment. There is also a panel in the engine compartment. They contain mostly fuses, but they have other components. If it's not there I suspect its related to air/ventilation control. These are my guesses. Otherwise you will have to trace wiring diagrams and ... Read More
I have a 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Right before -Xmas it wouldn't start- it turned out to be the security system. It was reset. Now there is a clicking noise that is coming from around the glove compartment. The noise is there no matter if the car is running or not & no matter whether the key is in the ignition or not- it still makes the noise. I was wondering ... Read More
Id like to know if a 1991 jeep cherokee laredo tranny and rear end would fit into a 1994 jeep grand cherokee laredo. How would i test the tranny or the rear end to find out which is the one to replace?
My boyfriend and I are having a bit of an arguement that I would like someone to settle. I have a 1994 Jeep Cherokee with 237,000 miles on it. I have lovingly taken care of it for 10 years, but it is getting a little feeble. About 4 years ago I had to replace the entire cooling system (water pump, radiator, clutch fan, thermostat and housing and all the hose lines), ... Read More
I forgot to mention that it is a Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited, 1994, 4 liter 6 cylinder. Can anyone help re the last message and can someone tell me where the EGR is located? Thanks
I have a 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee and it has a problem with either fuel or electrics. When I start it in the morning the idle fluctuates. When I try to rev the engine the idle drops off completely and sometimes the engine stops. After a few minutes I can gently rev the engine but if I put my foot down too hard and fast then there is a 'popping' from ... Read More
If you haven't replaced the crackshaft position sensor, consider doing that.
Well, here's what I think. It's your fuel pump. Just replace it. My reason is that I had one fail on an older car (not a Jeep) and the symptoms were about the same. The car would almost die when climbing hills and then perk up going downhill. I hope this helps. Let me know if this works. Jacques G. from Jeep SRT8
I have a 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo. I have had this car for the past 2 years, but not until a month ago did an alarm start going off every time I enter my car. The only way for me to disengage the alarm is to start the car after I enter it. This presents a problem because another issue is occurring simultaneously. Sometimes it will not start at all. ...

My 94 Jeep Gr Cherokee occasionally missfires after driving on the highway. It is fine until I get off the hwy and slow down. Then it misses/hesitates for a few seconds. After that, it is OK. I checked for stored codes, changed plugs and wires and tried dry gas. The problem started after a transmission rebuild, not sure if is related. Any ideas? Thank you
I have a 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 5.2 litre 4wd. The vehicle sat for over a year with no battery in it. Well I decided to redo the motor and get it running again.

Hi,I recently picked up a 1994 jeep cherokee sport with the 4 liter inline six. I took it to have the oil changed about a month ago and shortly there after discovered an oil leak. After checking it out I found that is was coming from the mount for the oil filter. The best way to discribe it would be the piece that is bolted to the extrusion molded on the ... Read More
1994 Jeep cherokee stalls out while driving I have to wait until it decides to start between 10-35 minutes
Does anyone know how to replace the fuel door cable (its the one when you pull the lever to pop open the fuel door) I just bought the part, but I don't know where to begin because it's not in the repair manual.
Im having problems starting my jeep while it is cold. It will turn over then die after just a few seconds. After awhile when the day would get warmer the jeep would start without any problems.

I have a 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo with the 4.0L inline-6 with around 75K miles. It doesn't get driven very much, it sits in my driveway at home while am at school during the school year, and recently when I started it up after it had been sitting for a few weeks it started making weird noises.

I have the same exact problem with my 1994 4.0 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Have you found a solution?
My 1994 4.0 Jeep Grand Cherokee started running terrible (bucking and stalling). I replaced the crankshaft position sensor, and it ran fine...except that afterword it started bucking after about 20-30 minutes after starting. It runs rough like this for about a minute...then runs fine again. It has done this without fail, every day for the last 6 months. It never stalls, and always starts. When it starts bucking, it slows down ... Read More
I will check into that additive. The noises started before the shock replacement. I know about that OEM shock clopping causer.

They were the same cats who told me my clogged ... Read More

I have a 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee with approx 149,000 miles. I was at the repair shop today and the guy said the front differential has been badly damaged and the cost for a new front differential alone is approx $2000.

I have a 1994 jeep grand cherokee and my husband replaced fuses in it (he actually replaced all of the fuses inside) that evening I went to turn the headlights on and my dash lights and running lights went. I noticed on the box that the fuses were for late model jeeps 96 and up would this cause the problem and if so would it have blown my whole wiring?
You might want to take a look at the rotors on the Jeep. Even if it not techinically time to have them changed. I have heard on many other forums that JGCs tend to go through rotors like water....
You might want to take a look at your steering stabilizer. The next thing to look at is the front wheel u-joints; pull the front wheels and rotate the hubs back a forth and watch the joints for excess play.
when i apply my brakes coming to a stop while turning (like pulling into my parking spot) the jeep shudders. I cant tell if its my brakes or what. it seems to be getting worse. mikki

A friend wants to sell me his Grand Jeep Cherokee 4x4 with 100,000- miles on it for $1,000.00 (one thousand) but it needs a new transmission and rear end. He has two quotes for $4,000.00 to get the work done. So, is this a good deal and are there any problems with the 1994's? Would you purchase a 1994?THANKS FOR THE REVIEWS! Big Drake
I need to replace the transfer case on my 6cyl., 1994 Jeep Cherokee Sport, 5spd MT. The name plate says it is a 231j. I'm looking around trying to find a used one to replace it with.

May i suggest that you change the ASD,(auto shutdown)and the fuel pump relays, and any "questionable" fuses that relate to the problem. Many electrical accessarires in the vehicle utilize relays to transmit current to the component(s). If the relay(s) are defective, the components will not work properly. Battery to ignition switch. Switch to Power distribution centers (2 for most jeep models 1993 thru 2000). Power distribution center,(in engine compartment), to PCM ... Read More
I have a 99 Grand Cherokee that suddenly stalls. Sometimes it will restart and other times it needs to rest and then it will restart. I hooked up an OBD II analyzer, and it returns no trouble codes. I hooked up the analyzer just after it stalled and again, no trouble codes. Any idea what to do? Thanks, Bill
First of all, take your vehicle to a jeep dealership to have them scan the On Board Diagostics (OBD). This will let you know what your problem is, and how to go about fixing the problem. I, seeing this problem before, just quite not as bad, tend to lean towards the crankshaft, and/or the camshaft position sensors needing to be replaced. I cannot tell you what exactly the problem is, because ... Read More

I simply cannot believe how poor of a product Jeep makes! When you pay 27K for a new vehicle, you think you would get a little time before things started to go wrong. Especially expensive things.

Thanks, copycat. The problem did turn out to be the crank sensor. Most difficult thing to replace on a 5.2. Located on the rear bell housing behind the EGR tube. Like to never have figured out what type of bolt was holding it on. Jeep Dealer mechanic said he thougt it was 10 mm hex head. NOT TRUE. For all you that change out your crank sensor, it is a # ...

so what was wrong your jeep
This posting was from a long time ago but I am having the same problem now on my 1994 JGC. I either get a fast idle or very slow idle followed by the check engine light. I have replaced both the O2 sensor and the MAP sensor but the problem returned after both attempts at a cure. I had one shop suggest that it could be an exhaust manifold leak. Did ... Read More
Did your problem get solved? I have the same problem. I had the vehicle tested at the dealership, it showed crank sensor but I have a friend with a 94 Jeep grand cherokee, he has replaced the sensor and the problem continues. Please let me know how you have made out.
your problem is Crank position sensor
Just a shot in the dark, but I've heard of people having problems with the built in security system. I don't really know anything about it or what the symptoms are or even how to check it...but give it a search on this site see what it turns up. Also search google. Good luck.
I have a 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee 5.2 V8. Once you crank the engine, you have approx. 15 minutes of drive time or idle time before the engine shuts off. Then, after waiting for about 15 minutes off not touching anything, it starts back up and drives fine for 15 more minutes. I originally thought it was a fuel pump problem and replaced the pump. But the problem persisted. This time, ... Read More
Thank you so much for for this reply. I recently replaced the entire new cooling system in my 1994 Cherokee, radiator and cap, water pump, thermostat, and fan clutch. When I bought the thermostat, the guy asked what temp I wanted: 195º, 185º or 165º. I had no idea, so I picked the one in the middle. Well, he gave me the 165º, and I installed it. I get over 19mpg, ... Read More
I have a 2005 Jeep GCL with the 5.7 Hemi. It has the NAG1 German 5 speed automatic in it. Shortly after I got it in Dec 2004, I noticed that at 60 MPH, sometimes the tac would read 2100 RPM and sometimes it would be at about 1750. I took it back to the dealer and after going for a ride with their diagnostic computed hooked up to it, I ... Read More
I had a 1999 GCL. As I recall, the air ducts had electronic controlled dampers to vary the temperature. I sounds that either the control module for the climate control has failed or you have something going on with the dampers. A damper motor could have failed. It also could be that the plastic air duct has deformed and has jammed the damper in one position.
I'm having the exact same problem with my 99 JGCL. I also have the dual climate control and the hot air blowing out on the 2 passengar side vents. I took it to a repair shop and they said a rodent was stuck in it...which doesn't make sense to me. I really don't think that is the issue. If you find out anything...PLEASE let me know what you hear. Thanks, Laura ... Read More
I'm also having a problem with the A/C in my 02 JGCL. I have the dual climate control but the passenger side blows only hot air. So far no problem with the drivers side air. I also have the rubbing sound in my steering column which others on this site have mentioned. I'm starting to wonder whether or not it was good purchase.
Bought a 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited V6 new in 1994. Had air conditioner problems while under warrenty. Evaporator coil had to be replaced.

Is replacing a radiator on a 1994 Cherokee an easy process? Is it the same as other cars? I have done other cars but was told a Jeep is different and more difficult. Thanks, Danny
from experience i can tell you jeeps are notorious for staying hot once they decide to get that way. so one must adapt. try to flush the engine of deposits . you can try the chemical stuff or have it shop done . cooling system flush. make sure you have the right thermostat. check radiator cap, simple but important. you did not mention fan clutch. does 94' have dual fans or ...
