2000 Jeep Cherokee overheated and won’t start
ANSWER : Hi there. If the vehicle overheated, and you noticed a lot of coolant on the ground, it’s quite possible that either the radiator broke, a coolant hose broke or the radiator cap was damaged. When this happens, a lot of coolant spills on your hot motor (which is the odor you are smelling). This can also cause damage to critical electrical parts that help the engine start and run. It’s probably a good idea to have a professional mechanic come to your location and complete a car is hard to start inspection, so they can determine what is damaged and needs to be repaired to resolve your problems. Without knowing what is damaged, it’s hard to provide an estimate for repairs.

Jeep stopped acclerating, brakes locked up, power steering fluid everywhere 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee
ANSWER : Hi – first task is to check for problem codes (Check Engine light) – these will be helpful. From your symptoms, and the sequence, I believe the engine lost oil suddenly (failed oil cooler line or front crank seal?), and air speed or the engine fan blew it all over the engine compartment. Engine shut down, which means you had no brake boost (pedal would be extremely hard to push). I would recommend an oil leak inspection by a mobile, professional mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, who will come to your location, diagnose this problem, give you an accurate assessment of damage and cost estimate for repairs.

Jeep is having a hard time starting. 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee
ANSWER : Hi there – your symptoms suggest a fuel supply issue, quite likely a fuel pressure check valve or fuel pressure regulator issue. Either of these can allow fuel pressure in the injection system to leak down while the vehicle sits. This makes the fuel pump work harder when the vehicle is next started, taking longer to get fuel pressure up to specs. I recommend a hard starting inspection performed by a mobile, professional mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, who will come to your location, diagnose this problem, and give you an accurate assessment of damage and cost estimate for repairs.

I have a 2000 jeep grand Cherokee limited 4.7L V8. I was gone for a month in a half tried starting my jeep up yesterday and nothin
ANSWER : It may be normal engine electrical drain on the battery if the vehicle sat for a month or more. Once the battery is recharged fully then you can see if it will idle again. Just jumping off and only running a few minutes may not charge the battery enough to let it idle on its own. You should use a battery charger to recharge battery and retest it to see if it still stalls. You may have a bad battery and need to relearn the idle. If it still stalls then the idle control valve may be stuck closed and need to be replaced.

I put in a new starter and battery and my Jeep will not start. Please help me get my Jeep to start.
ANSWER : Hi there. Check to see if the wiring to the battery and the starter are tight and clean. A bad connection will cause a no start situation. If the battery cables and wires are all tight and clean, then go in the cab and turn on the ignition switch and see if any thing in the cab works.

If nothing comes on, then check the fuse box for any blown fuses. If all the fuse are good in the cab and under the hood, then the ignition switch needs replaced. If the ignition switch is good and the accessories come on, then either the starter relay in the fuse box has failed or the wires from the starter relay to the ignition switch has become burned or loose. Check the wires from the starter relay on the starter to the ignition switch. If everything checks out to be good, then the ignition switch needs replaced.

If you need further assistance troubleshooting your vehicle, then seek out a technician, such as one from YourMechanic, that can assist you with your no start situation and help you with the power surge.

Jeep won’t turn over after sitting for 8 hours 2001 Jeep Cherokee
ANSWER : Hello – I would first check the battery cables and ground straps for corrosion, or other poor-connectivity problems. A strong battery can be hampered by poor connections, which will sometimes finally pass current. A failing starter solenoid (burned contacts) will act in a similar fashion. You may find that adding a jumper battery will improve the situation – at least temporarily. A failing ignition switch or starter relay can also cause start-up problems. I recommend a hard starting inspection performed by a mobile, professional mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, who will come to your location, diagnose this problem, and give you an accurate assessment of damage and cost estimate for repairs.

ANSWER : Hi. Trouble code P0455 is for the emissions system of the car and the only effect it will have on the car is the fuel economy may go down slightly and the car will pollute the air a little more. This code will not cause the car to run rough or shut down.

Now there are serval other components to your emissions system that could be still leaking causing this code. There are evaporative hoses that could leaking or completely broken causing this problem.
