Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2001 Jeep Cherokee Owner Comments

problem #1

Jun 302001

Cherokee 4WD

  • miles


The vehicle with 10529 miles lost all power during highway driving at about 55 mph. The engine warning light came on. After about 15 minutes, I started the car and drove about one half mile before it lost all power again and the warning light came on again. The car was towed. After considerable time in the dealer's shop during which the problems were apparently difficult enough to warrant consultation with the manufacturer, the drive oil pump, the main computer (module powertra.), camshaft sensor, and crankshaft sensor were replaced. At 10747 miles, the engine warning light came on again. The car was again towed to the garage although it had been running for about 3/4 mile after the light came on. The diagnosis was that the #4 cylinder was misfiring. The synchronization was reset without any parts replacement.
