and I started to drive home (a few blocks away). I shut the jeep off at two red lights to prevent from over heating. Any idea what can be going on?
OK so here's the strange part.....2 days after getting car out of shop, today in fact I start the car and it is idling rough. Thought maybe the engine is just cold, but no, it kept on idling rough and sputtering as I accelerate. Thought it would go away but it's getting worse, to where it's almost knocking and feel like it's about to die. It's worst when I come to a complete stop, then it will idle real rough and almost shake/vibrate the car. I have to put it in neutral and then it will lessen the knocking. Then when I go, its sputtering again only louder each time. All this again after 2 days of the other repairs.
So I bring car back to shop and he puts it under scope/pc....which say something like " ignition distributor engine module malfunction". My mechanic resets it and test drives it and says it either another sensor under the distributor that regulates air/fuel, or it's just high mileage on the vehicle (180k). So question is what should I do? I feel the shop is responsible cuz it only did this after I got my car out. And I don't think high mileage can turn my engine to the condition it is in now and so rapidly all in one day. Last time I drove car I smelled a burning smell coming from the engine. Afraid to drive it again.
Thanks for listening and any advice would be appreciated.
Your problem could be any number of things. I would have the codes pulled, they should point you in some direction. I would have the CPS looked at again, just to make sure it was installed correctly. Other than that, follow where the codes lead you.
After doing some research I think most likely it is the TPS Sensor or the Crank Sensor installed incorrectly which can effect the Cam Sensor inside the distributor.
I had no choice but to drop the car back off at the shop on a Sunday and left keys w/ gas station b/c the car is really undriveable. Now only thing is I'm trying to say it's their fault cuz it really is. This never happend before. Any input?
Where is the sending unit for the oil pressure located on teh 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee with the 6 cylinder engine?
Does anyone know why my pressure would suddenly shoot from normal to max pressure? Would it be the unit or the gage?
Also, someone has said that there are different sending units, some with 1 prong some with 2. What does the 2002 Jeep with 6 cyl take?
Since then I found if the ignition switch is turned all the way off then back on the problem may clear (even when driving the Jeep). If the engine starts to miss I can turn the ignition switch off and back on and often the engine will start back immediately and run fine.
I considered changing the ignition switch but I know there is a lot more relays and such which also could be cycling off and on with the ignition switch.
Does anyone know a test point I can monitor key voltages from the ignition switch. There has never been an engine error code which made me think the ECM is involved.
the computer is mounted on the fire wall on right side behind the ac aculumater i had croaked connections there from water off aculumater cleaned greased OK now
remove valve cover and look see if broke valve spring
