2000 Jeep Cherokee 4 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 154000 miles
We have poured money into this Jeep Cherokee Classic
since we purchased, in September, 2008. It is in beautiful condition, we look after it. Replaced A/C Everything! Catalytic Converter++ Fixed electrical problems in
'Alerts' on dash, separately, which were causing 'Check Engine' light to stay on. We have done Everything!
Check-Engine light came on again weeks ago, garages
told us it was, 'clogged catalytic converter', hadn't been 'welded properly causing a blockage, which, in turn, caused the the idle air control to malfunction. Took to Jeep Dealership, they couldn't figure it out!
Finally we had to get it towed to them, because car just cut out everywhere, you name it, Stop Signs, Traffic Lights and finally wouldn't start; towed! Jeep replaced the Idle Air Control Motor: $432.
Check engine light is back on again 2 days later!
Back to Jeep, they replaced the Jeep Computer: $674.
We've already had the sensor replaced for same problems. Since we had the Jeep back the A/C
only blows on highest setting! We've had Everything
replaced on A/C System! Check Engine light
came back on again, 3 days after replacing PCM!
Have an appointment this Tuesday: 05/04, but
we are desperate that this Jeep doesn't put us under
a bridge! Initially it was reported --2 Auto Shops-- that it was ' clogged catalytic converter / wrong installation problem causing the Idle Air Control system to 'overcompensate'. Jeep Auto Shop said: No, it's in fine, which is Odd, because we have had to fix Cat. Problems forever, including a second weld job! What the Deuce can we do at this juncture?
Any ideas --A 'Road-Map' Direction to Resolve these Repeat issues?
Thank you for any Help you can Advise?
