1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 4.0 from Norway


Comfortable, reliable and very practical


I have changed:

- Alternator.

When I got it, due to years of neglect and it had been parked for 2 years:

- All oils and filters.

- Both engine mounts.

- Right front wheel bearing.

- Exhaust manifold.

- Spark plugs, rotor, distributor cap, spark plug wires.

- Rotors and brake pads (rusted from the long parking).

- A bent front driveshaft (to a used one and new universal joints).

Parts are dirt cheap, the vehicle is reliable and easy to work on if necessary.

General Comments:

One of the best cars that I have owned. I use the car every day.

Catalytic converter.

General Comments:

A great car for the money.

With 24 years on the northern roads, some rust issues have appeared.

Nevertheless this doesn't affect the greatness of the first generation of Jeeps Grand Cherokees; absolutely reliable and good riding cars, if maintained properly.

This one had a lot of issues when I bought it, I was aware of it, but it left me stranded with a defective fuel pump.

I do all the work myself or else it wouldn't be an option to buy an old car like this.

Next project will be to change all brake lines and hoses, because salt and moisture have taken their toll on the components...

A great car with a lot of power for hauling; good for winter driving and the ability to go off-road in comfort!

1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 4.0L six cylinder from North America


I love my Jeep


I never had a problem with my old 77 LeSabre. It's the 93 Jeep that I'm having troubles with; the tail lights keep going wacko on me. I have taken it to an auto electrician 3 times for this; they don't make the little control unit that sits in the left rear quarter panel.

The problem, as of this moment, is I step on the brake pedal, and the parking lights and dash lights come on. When I turn on the lights and step on the brakes, the parking and tail lights go out. Is this a common problem, like the exhaust manifold cracking?

So far I have replaced the exhaust manifold, water pump, and alternator in 141000 miles.

It was originally used as a ranch vehicle.

General Comments:

I like the Jeep, and don't want to get off it if I don't have to. I also don't want to let it continue to nickle and dime me to death either. Just wanted some feedback to see, as I said, if this is a common problem after this amount of miles?

I put it like this when people ask me how it has treated me. The heart in it is great, it's the nerve system that is going out on it.

1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 4.0L straight 6 from North America


With all the crappy new trucks out there, I'm keeping my Grand Cherokee!


ECM replaced 3 times because Jeep placed next to engine where it gets hot. In summer, it runs like crap and died; sometimes would die going 65mph! the 3rd time, I drilled a hole and moved it inside the cab where it's cool. Runs great ever since.

Anti theft system went goofy. Sets off the alarm by itself when sitting, locks automatically sometimes, but no problems, I disconnected the alarm fuse and just unlock it if it locks by itself.

Fuel pump finally went at 230,000 miles.

Some electronic displays stopped working.

General Comments:

It's the 2nd best vehicle I've ever owned.

I don't baby it, and it still looks almost new. I use it now for winter, hauling and plowing.

(For '93, it's really an AMC). Chrysler didn't cheapen much when they bought AMC until 1994.

If aliens landed, they would think this was the new model, and the ugly outdated styling of Jeeps after 1998 were the old models.

Interior makes me feel like I'm rich.

Drivetrain is bulletproof.
