My 1987 Jeep had a similar problem. the wire leading down to the crank sensor (necessary for the engine to develop spark) was damp and grounding against the firewall. Tied it slightly away from the firewall w/ a tiewrap, and never had problem again (previously the dealer had replaced the crank sensor twice without the problem correcting itself)

Heater blows cold air on my 1998 jeep grand Cherokee Laredo?

The Laredo model is a single control system for the blend doors that direct air through the heater core. The dual control Limited model has more problems, but the same basic issue occurs on the Laredo also. The Limited tends to break sooner since with dual control it has two actuator motors, one for each side. The Laredo as a single motor with two doors and takes longer to break since it has two doors to withstand the forces of the motor. However, it will break just like the Limited and a 98 is about due for the failure. Check the diagnostic information at the web site at HeaterTreater (.net) for pictures and a cheap easy solution to the problem.

How do you replace the serpentine belt located on a Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo?

For the 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo, you'll need a 1/2" socket wrench. The longer the wrench the better, i.e. a long breaker bar. The spring retention arm has a square hole for the 1/2" socket to be placed. Once placed, you can adjust tension for serpentine belt removal or application. Follow the belt route guide on the "little sticker" near the belt under the hood. If you don't have a 1/2" socket wrench, I'm pretty sure you can rent the necessary tool at Autozone for free (deposit returned when tool returned). This method works for many different vehicles, makes, and models.

How do you remove the belt on a 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo?

If the '94 is anything like my '98. In order to remove the belt there is a belt tensioner underneathe the power steering pump on the drivers side. Crack the bolt loose on the pulley of the tensioner. If you look to the right of it and behind it you will see a longer bolt, you need to use that bolt to adjust your tensioner so that it lets slack on your belt.

Why is my 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo brakes getting hot?

Hi im Mike from Mn, I also have a 2000 jeep grand Cherokee with front brakes that are partially engaged so that they heat up. I got them to release after pulling the fuse and relay for the ABS IN THE FUSE BOX under the hood. The brakes work ok now and have not stuck back on but the ABS system is no longer working. I went to the Jeep dealer and they said they had never heard of this problem before.They said if I can make it happen again they may be able to figure it out. Any info you have about this problem would be greatly appreciated Mike

How do you change the oil in a 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo?

Pull the plug on the base pan. Then pull off your oil filter. Reverse steps to re-install Allow time for the amount of oil coming out of the pan to decrease to a point where it is no longer a solid stream. When pulling off the oil filter, keep it upright (common sense) until you get it over a pan. Also make sure to rub some oil on the filter gasket before screwing it on. Don't tighten it too tight. You shouldn't need any sort of wrench, as hand-tightening is tight enough and a wrench could damage the filter.

Will the rear leaf springs on a Comanche fit on a Cherokee?

Good question. Are they the same year, wheel base, automatic, air conditioning, ect? I take it you found a set off a Comanche, and you have a Cherokee? Here is what I would do. Call the dealer and get the part number for the Comanche, then call again and get the price and part number for a Cherokee. If the same, good too go. If not? Good luck No, they will not. Comanche springs are longer than the Cherokee Springs. While all the front suspension parts are completely interchangeable and identical, the rear is completely different.

How do you get a Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo out of 4x4 mode?

It should come out just from moving the stick to the 2wd mode but a lot of the times you have to move in reverse for 40 or 50 feet. You should simply be able to push the handle to the 2wd mode but many times it'll indicate that you're no longer in 4wd when you're really still in. You sometimes have to drive the vehicle in reverse for 40 or 50 feet. It should come out by then. You can check it by making tight turns and see how the steering feels.
