JEEP CHEROKEE Gurgling sound coming from box near fuel tank

First of all I am the proud new owmer of a 1998 4x4 cherokee. My previous truck was a 1996 4x2 cherokee you all of your posts made me make the jump to 4x4. My 98 has a box near the fuel tank that has what appears to be fuel and vent lines leading to the tank and engine bay.

Sometimes at idle and when the motor is off I hear a gurgling sound coming from the fuel tank area. I found a TSB 14-06-98 that seems to relate to it but I didnt want to pay the 25 to read it unless I had to. I was wondering if any of you have come across the problem. The jeep

JEEP CHEROKEE Fuel Tank Problem

Well I purchased my used 91 cherokee yesterday and took her home and detailed it. The light had been on for the gas tank for a little while so after i drove her around a little bit I took her to get some gas. She took in 19.89 gallons not that big of a deal she was probably just empty. I then added a bottle of STP super concentrated fuel injector cleaner. I then took her on some very light trails.

I dont see how it would be possble to puncture my fuel tank when it has what looks like a stock skid plate underneath it. Its plastic but I assume that it would work to block sharp things. Like i said I did some light trailing so light I probably didnt need 4wd but i was testing out the fulltime 4wd. So I am thinking that the gasket is broken or something at the top of the front of the tank. The jeep

Or if as you say you are questioning your fuel pump anyway you could simply replace the pumpsending unit assembly and be done with it. Youll be dropping the tank anyway so if you have the cash do it right. Check out Select jeep-1991-cherokee Laredo-4.0L-fuelAir-fuelPump- Electric. Airtex Part E7072S is the full assembly unit for your jeep I believe.

JEEP CHEROKEE 99 XJ Fuel tank capacity mod

I replaced my fuel tank last week and while I had it down I thought I would try to up the capacity in my fuel tank as some have done to older cherokees like this Although my tank is a little different and plastic it still worked pretty much the same as the older mod. I bought a piece of blow-by hose (the same size as my vent line) which was already bent into


My girlfriends 1992 jeep cherokee has a noise coming from the fuel tank. When we go over bumps we hear something hitting the side of the fuel tank.

JEEP CHEROKEE Fuel tank recall

I have a 87 cherokee should I be worried about my gas tank

Even on Grand cherokees (ZJWJ) and Libertys (KJ) the issue is blown out of proportion.

JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE I ZJ 97 ZJ fuel tank about to fall off - undriveable

I came out of a building late this afternoon and as I approached my 1997 ZJ from the rear I noticed the fuel tank hanging down with its left rear (passenger side) corner about 3 inches from the pavement. Both fuel tank straps had broken near the rear of the vehicle. There is no skid plate. It was dark so a friend parked his car with the headlights on so we could see a bit better and determine whether

JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE Fuel tank vent better filling by trimming inside tank Any pics from inside tank

Ive known for a long time now that some Wranglers (YJs) came with a looong vent tube in the tank to reduce the volume of gas you can put into the tank. Im not sure what piece of legislation would have made that seem a good idea but people have been trimming the vent pipe inside the tank for years to get an extra 5 gals in their tanks httpwww.4x4wire.comjeeptechfuel15to20gal I have only tonight learned

JEEP CHEROKEE Fuel tank leaks but only when full

Hi all Apologies if this has been answered previously. I did a search and couldnt find a satisfactory answer though. Im a complete newbie and all I know about my 2000 cherokee SE is where I need to insert the ignition key so I can go places -)) While going places this past weekend I discovered that fuel starts dripping from the tank when I fill it up.

JEEP CHEROKEE Where to get a fuel tank grommet

JEEP CHEROKEE Fuel Pump Tank Issues Urgent

I decided that this week I would do a maintenance standown. Changing all the fluids (diffsoil t-case but not tranny) replacing all 4 brakes (drums and rotors too) new valve cover and oil pan gaskets (with a RMS job included) obvious oil air filter and spark plug replacements on my 90 XJ with 175000 miles on it.

JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE Fuel tank skid plate rusting away

So the fuel tank skid plate on my jeep is pretty much done. I can push my fingers through parts of the metal and that big plate on it is falling off. Yay rust...

JEEP CHEROKEE Will a 91 fuel tank fit on an 85

I am in the process of swaping a 3.4 60 degree V6 in to my 85 cherokee in place of the 2.8 60 degree engine. I am planing on sticking with the SFI fuel injection system that was used on the engine so I am going to need to set up a different fuel set up to run. So I am thinking I can swap tanks for a newer cherokee tank. From the stickies it looks like 91 and up 4.0L were MPI set ups so I assume that

JEEP CHEROKEE XJ Yes you can change the fuel pump on a 1990 Cherokee without droping the tank...BUT

OK someone here mentioned that it could be done and since I felt there was still more gas in the tank than I wanted to deal with I decided to try it. Hammering off the retaining ring that holds the pump into the tank was pretty easy even for such a cramped space. Getting the old pump out was a bit tight but with a bit of moving around that wasnt so bad either. Once pump bracket and all was out remove

I have had my fuel pump out so many times that I could probably swap one out with my eyes closed (I have probably had the sending unit out 8 times). I did find that in the HELP section of Oreillys they have fuel tank gaskets for the sending unit. They dont have one that lists jeep on it but they have one that will work. It is listed as being for GM and Ford and the part number is 55812. It comes with

JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE Why Does GC Die with Low Fuel Level in Tank

My son has a 98 GC with small V8 that has died on him several times when the gas level indicated on gauge is around or just under 18th tank. The fuel warning light has never come on. The jeep starts again after this happens and it typically does not repeat. He thinks it may be more likely when the vehicle is cold. He is experimenting by keeping fuel above that level to see if it repeats but I am wondering

Thanks for all the ideas. Too bad this is not common enough to have an obvious cause I like the overheating fuel pump theory and the clogged filter theory It has high miles filter has probably never been changed so could be a factor If it happens again maybe time to just drop the tank and replace the pump and filter. I did that on an older cherokee was a pain but not so difficult to cause crazy labor

JEEP CHEROKEE Larger fuel tank

I have an 88 cherokee Limited that I am going to be preemptively replacing the fuel pump since it has 192K. Better to do it now. While I am in there I wanted to do a procedure I have seen several times on different website about increasing the capicity of the tank. This XJ supposedly has the 20 gal tank but the previous owner nor myself have ever been able to get more than 16ish gallons into it even

JEEP CHEROKEE fuel tank only accepts 18gal

The other day i ran out of gas on the freeway lucky me i had some friends to help me push it to the nearest gas station. I topped it off even held the trigger till it clicked did it twice. The fuel tank only accepted 18.3 gallons. What is with my fuel tank I thought XJ has 20gal tanks..

tank is actually a 23 gallon. 2. Your being ripped off by a gas station. Theres a thread floating around about modifying (trimming) your vent tube to get the tank to accept more fuel.

JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE fuel tank skid plate

Any advise on the best way to replace the fuel tank skid on a 2001 laredo I found one in a junk jard and need to know any tips for getting it out IE supporting or tieing up fuel tank while you remove the plate. If I have to let the tank down what do I need to disconnect before dropping it Thanks

The fuel tank sits in the skid and has 2 straps that go over the tank and hold it into the skid. Skid is bolted to bottom of jeep. Run the tank to almost empty. Makes it easier (lighter). Use a floor jack under the center of the skid to hold tank up while you undo the bolts. Depending on where you live presoak bolts with PB blaster or simular. remove bolts. lower tank slowly checking hoses and elec

JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE Can I use a 95 gas tank and fuel filter on 96

Got a 1996 Grand cherokee Laredo and need a fuel pump too expensive to buy new but found a junk yard one so can I just install the 1995 tank and pump Seems the in-tank fuel pump is only made for one particular year like my 96.

JEEP CHEROKEE The Wonders of My Fuel Tank

Ive had my 99 Classic for over five years now. One problem it has always had is a inaccurate fuel gauge. I know this is a common issue with XJs and MJs. Ive owned quite a few and never really had an accurate reading on the gas situation. This jeep however likes to die on quick left turns when the gauge is close to empty. That would make sense but there is usually at least three to four gallons left

JEEP CHEROKEE fuel tank upgrade

JEEP CHEROKEE 86 Comanche fuel tank sender interchange

I have an 86 Comanche with the carb 2.8 V6 in need of a fuel sender. The gauge does not rise above 14 tank no matter how much gas you put in. I was wondering if any other sending units may interchange or be made to work with some minor mods. Could it be possible to use a Renix cherokee unit replacing the in-tank pump with a section of fuel line. Any ideas would be great as there is no easy source for a new one. Cheers Mike

JEEP CHEROKEE Replacement gas tankfuel pumpfilter

So I need to drop the gas tank in my 2000 xj to smoke my evaporative system since a new gas cap did not resolve my evap leak. While Im in there I would like to replace the fuel pump fuel filter and (depending on the price) the tank too. I just installed a rebuilt engine so having a new clean tank sounds like a good idea. Can I get these parts from the dealership If not what are some quality replacements Do they sell tanks with the pump and filter ready to go

Wondering why you think the tank needs to come out for a smoke test Wondering why the tank would need replacing unless it is leaking If the tank has sediments they can be flushed out or wiped out with a clean cloth. The 97-01 fuel filter is not routinely replaced and will be fine unless testing shows it is clogged. Buy a genuine jeep fuel pump assembly or a Bosch. AirTex fuel pumps suck and you will regret buying one.
