99 JEEP CHEROKEE

5 posts in this topic

My girlfriends suv has been having trouble starting. Cranks over fine but doesnt start right away, it took three tries this morning and ran a little funny so she shut it off. Do theses have the same problems as a chevy as far as fuel regulators or filters. It acts like my chevy did a year back. And if so where is it located and could i do it myself? I think Its a striaght 6 cylinder if that matters

I think yours is regulated at the fuel pump. If this is the case than the pump/module assembly will need to be replaced. These are not cheap! Making sure that this is the problem before just replacing it would be a good idea.

This is a pretty common problem for all Chryslers. We see quite a few Durangos, Dakotas, and Jeeps with the symptoms you have described and it usually is always the fuel pump/module assembly.

If it is regulated at the fuel rail than it will be in plain view on the rail close to the P/S pump (if I recall correctly).

Does this have to be hooked up to a computer to tell me the problem? Is there any other way of checking it? Thanks again for the help!

I had that exact problem with my 98 Grand Cherokee, I replaced the Fuel Pump assembly and it solved the problem.

If I where looking at this my gut instinct would say fuel issue based on your description of the problem. All you need is a fuel pressure gauge. The schrader valve is on the fuel rail and is easily accessible. With the pressure gauge hooked up turn the key on (may have to cycle the key a couple of times to build pressure), fuel pressure should rise and then hold. If the pressure drops Then there is a problem. 99% of the time the fuel pump is the issue but the possibility of an injector(s) leaking may also exist although unlikely.

Good luck!!

      Bla bla bla, all this Walleye talk is boring me to death.   The real opening day is this Saturday when the Muskie opener comes to Minnesota and the Big V.  I'll be out fishing with my son and grandson searching for some real fish.   The weather looks great, my baits are all sharpened and the new line is on all my rigs. Bucktails, Glittertails, spinnerbaits and minnow style cranks will make up most of our arsenal, however we will also be tossing a few topwaters looking for those Big green girls and not even talking about Walleye fishing.   Have a great weekend everybody!   "Ace" "It's just fishing man"

      5/29/17 Fishing report from Flag Island Resort NW Angle, Lake of the Woods   Happy Memorial Day!   The past week has brought some variation in weather including sunshine, wind and rain. Overall fishing has been good.  The bug hatches have started with the fish flies having some impact on the fishing but, anglers are still consistently getting limits.   On the Minnesota side, the walleye, sauger, pike and perch bite continues. The magic depths have been between 7-13 feet in the mud and 16-26 feet on rocks. The Flag Island Flats are starting to heat up. Other hot locations include points and near shore reefs. Just the same as last week all tactics have had their day. Jigging, raps and spinners have all been producing once you find what is working. The water temp is around 58 degrees.   Over in Ontario anglers are still catching a nice mixed bag of walleye, sauger, crappie, perch, pike and smallmouth bass. The crappies are moving shallower getting ready to spawn. Some depths according to their species are as follows; Smallmouth bass 2-8 feet, Walleyes 20-24 feet and Sauger 26-30 feet. Points, reefs, humps, areas with current, rock piles and inside turns have all worked when looking for locations. A jig or spinner with a minnow or crawler has worked best. The hot colors have been gold, pink and orange.   Until next week, good luck fishing! Guides, Dan Schmidt, Jeremy Glessing and Cale Albers Flag Island Resort 218-223-8011

      Sunday, different lake, different observations. I saw a few beds, but there were not any fish on them. I caught about two dozen gills and only one was female.

      Just talked to a buddy with an Ultera issue. He damaged the belt when he secured the motor head to his boat using a ram mount. Others I talked to said keep an eye on the belt tension. It is adjustable with an allen wrench.

      Yup!  I can see how that would be annoying!    Welcome to Fishing Minnesota though.  Glad to see your posts.

      Got out on Saturday along with my brother who went out in his boat. So much mud that we went our separate ways searching for better water. With 3 in his boat he caught 5 Coho and 5 Lake Trout. I found a nice spot and went 2/5 before the wind messed up the spot. Sunday morning went out with my brother to the same spot and had a double before the third line was out. Ended up going 7/11 before a storm with red in it chased us off the lake. Loonasea was correct on the nice size of the Coho's right now. All fish were caught with stick baits on top.
