Overheating the engine shouldn't effect the transmission. Overheating the transmission could.
A sensor could be the reason why a 94 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo fails to start. The crank position sensor is often the problem. You can try unplugging the sensor for several minutes and then plugging it back in to see if that fixes the problem.
Crank position sensor could be the problem. Worth looking into.
you could have abad temp sensor
According to my mechanic, it has something to do with the cam shaft position sensor overheating.
there could be many different factors in the problem could be that your cooling fan does not come on or your radiator is plugged or maybe your thermostat does not open or it could even be low on anti-freeze.
You may need to replace the crankshaft position sensor. Not sure about the '94 but I have a 2000 that had this same problem. Replaced the sensor and the problem was solved.
could possibly be a overheating problem
The engine could possibly seize.
A 1991 Honda Accord could be overheating if the radiator has a leak. There could also be a problem with the head gasket.
Check the sensor switch first.
The engine could be overheating and stalling, or it could be the drivetrain system. Whatever it is I would highly consider taking it to a trained automachanic.
Valves will clatter if the engine is overheating.Valves will clatter if the engine is overheating.
1996 grand cherokee jeep 4x4 cuts off as if I switched it off going down the road. What could be the problem? Could it be a sensor or computer?
Chances are not the temp sensor. It could be a thermostat or a hose that has a leak. And the one you dare not want it to be is a crack head.
"how do you change a throttle position sensor on a 1998 jeep grand Cherokee?" could someone without any experience do it?
check the radiator
It could be an emissions problem or a catalytic converter problem.
Easiest check would be the cap and rotor then move on to a bad crank sensor
Yes. I had this problem on a 2000 Grand Cherokee. The problem came without any warning that I could notice. I parked it at night and the next morning it would crank and crank but not start. - I would imagine that his problem could happen gradually if the sensor had a broken lead wire or was gradually failing. In my case it was immediate and complete failure.
yes...fisrst you need to check if the temp sensor is working. If this has an electric fan, check the relay and the fan motors. or when my 97 4.6 v8 was overheating, it was leaking coolant from the head gaskets.
The coolant temp. sensor could be bad....or the thermostat could be stuck shut.....there are a few things it could be actually
Its possible that it is the TPS sensor (throttle position sensor)easy to replace yourself and available at your local parts store.It could also be a transmission issue, change the fluid and filter, but start with the TPS sensor its a common problem and cheaper solution
Could be a number of reasons. Thermostat, water pump, blown fan relay, bad fan motor.
could be several things. 1st is the car actually overheating. If so then it could be a stuck thermostat or a bad water pump. If it is not really overheating my bet would be a falty temp sensor. The temp sensor is what actually tells the light to turn on.
