Engine Performance problem
1993 Jeep Cherokee 4 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 170k miles
could you please tell me how to read the codes from the self diagnostic check? I.E. Turn key to on/off/on/off/on position. When I do it, the check engine light flashes five times, pauses, then flashes five more times. The problem is that the jeep shuts off while i'm driving. The check engine light does not come on at all, it's not running hot, and all of the guages are reading normal. It will start back up and run fine after it sits for a while. Thanks in advance.
Check the fuel pressure and comeback with the readings-also see below
How to display the codes: Turn the ignition key On - Off - On - Off - On within 5 seconds
Count the number of times the check engine lamp on the dash flashes on and off.
The number of flashes represents the trouble code. There is a slight pause between the flashes representing the first and second digits of the code. Longer pauses separate individual two digit trouble codes.
Example: Lamp flashes 5 times, pauses, and flashes 5 more times. This indicates a code number 55. A code 55 will always be the last code to be displayed. This will indicate the end of all stored codes.
Also, the code numbers will be displayed on the vehicle's odometer. Each number will be displayed with a slight delay between numbers. Again, code 55 will always be the last code to be displayed. This method should work for Jeeps up to 1997.
