It sounds like you have a ground problem. The shifting could be the speed shift sensor on the right rear of the transmission. The dealer should be able to pull the codes off of the computer. If he can't then you need to take it to someone that knows what they're doing.

I have a 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee which just blew an engine. It looks as if it threw a rod out the side of the engine block and also cracked the exhaust manifold. My main repair facility and also the dealer said they have never seen something like this happen before.

The car has only 80,000 miles, young considering that this engine has a reputation for lasting well into the 200,000 mile range.

Any suggestions or ways that I can deal with Chrysler on this.

The car has been maintained every 3,000 miles. My replacement re-manufactured engine and repairs is costing $5,000.

I used to own a Ford Thunderbird, and I would get shocked upon exiting. I always thought it was static electricity. It didn't happen all the time, and seemed to happen more with certain clothes. Maybe that's why the dealer can't find anything.

I have a 98 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo. The vehicle runs good most of the time, but at no particular time stalls. Sometimes it will start right up, other times it takes a while. It has been in the shop several times and no one can tell me what the problem is. Replaced computer, cam sensor, oxygen sensor etc., etc.

Has anybody solved this problem?
