Jeep Grand Cherokee Haynes Service Repair Manual 1993-2004

About the Jeep Grand Cherokee

The Jeep Grand Cherokee is known as the Mid-size SUV put together by the Jeep division of Chrysler. While other companies other SUVs were manufactured with body on frame construction, the Jeep Grand Cherokee has always used a unibody chassis.

The Grand Cherokee's origins date back to 1983 when American Motors (AMC) engineers were designing a successor on behalf of smaller Jeep Cherokee (XJ). Three outside (non-AMC) designers-Larry Shinoda, Adam Clenet, and Giorgetto Giugiaro-were under contract with AMC to create and build a clay model of your new Cherokee replacement, then referred to as the "XJC" project. However, some of the design for those who are Cherokee's replacement was well under way by AMC's in-house designers too as the 1989 Jeep Concept 1 show car foretold the basic design.

The Grand Cherokee was the most important Chrysler-badged Jeep product. Development work for the brand new model continued and Chrysler employees (as soon as the 1987 buyout of AMC) were eager to locate a late-1980s release date; however, CEO Lee Iacocca was pushing for redesigned Chrysler minivans, thus delaying the Grand Cherokee's release until late 1992 as a possible Explorer competitor. Unlike the Explorer, the Grand Cherokee utilized monocoque (unibody) construction, whereas the Explorer must have been a derivative of a bunch of Ranger pickup which has a separate body-on-frame.

The Grand Cherokee debuted in grand fashion at all the January 1992 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Michigan. Then Chrysler president Robert Lutz drove Detroit mayor, Coleman Young, up the steps of Cobo Hall and by way of a plate glass window to indicate to off the brand new vehicle. Sales of your respective 1993 model year Grand Cherokee began in April 1992.

Production in regards to the Grand Cherokee started shortly afterward belonging to the purpose-built Jefferson North Assembly in Detroit, Michigan, United States. European Grand Cherokees are manufactured in Austria by Magna Steyr.

The ZJ models, manufactured from 1992 to 1998, originally came in three trim levels: Base, Laredo, and Limited. The Base model offered core features as an example full instruments, cloth interior, a standard five-speed manual transmission, while soon gaining the moniker SE name in 1994. Creature comforts like power windows and locks were not standard equipment on the SE, although conveniences such as these were finally included in 1995; a somewhat contrasting pricetag with minimal production numbers resulted with low consumer demand and dropping the now-uncommon bare-bone model forever. Additional standard options that come with note for your personal time included a driver-side air bag and four-wheel anti-lock braking system (ABS). The Laredo was the mid-scale model (essentially becoming base model after 1996), standard features included added body cladding power windows, power door locks, and cruise control; exterior features displayed a medium grey plastic hip, thigh and butt paneling and five-spoke aluminum wheels. The Limited was the premium model, together with the lower body paneling being exactly the same thing color due to the fact vehicle color. The Limited also boasted standard features for example , leather seating, optional power sunroof, mirrors, seats, and remote keyless entry system; heated mirrors, and heated seats, a basic onboard computer; and waffle-like cast aluminum wheels. The United States version seemed to be offered between 1993 and 1997. These people were generally painted "Champagne Pearl" or black. It was included with 4WD as well as a 4.0 straight-6. Package groups which is added to or were included with a variety of trim levels included: Convenience, Fog Lamp / Skid Plate, Lighting, Luxury, Power, Security, Trailer/Towing.

In 1995 the performance of a bunch of V8 engine was upgraded to 300 lb·ft (410 N·m) from 285 previously. 1996 brought cosmetic changes covering anything from improved body modeling (grille, bumpers), and integrated foglights; interior features added dual airbags and increased fabric quality for seating. Too, the "Grand Cherokee" fender emblems in a very American Motors-typeface dating back to 1974 were replaced making use of typeface officially used on other Chrysler vehicles. The AMC 4.0 L straight-6 engine, from a position to tow 5,000 lb (2,300 kg), had also been refined, through minimal loss in power but gained more torque and presented quieter operation. Limited models that year and onward had more luxury items for example , driver placement memory, remote radio control originating from a steering wheel, and variable-assist power steering.

Four-wheel drive systems included Command-Trac, a part-time unit offering temporary 4-wheel assistance; Command-Trac was dropped from lineup with the SE trim in 1996. Selec-Trac had choosing either full-time or part-time operation; both shift-on-the-fly Command-Trac and Selec-Trac were already readily available for the Cherokee, and they were adapted to the Grand Cherokee. Exclusive to all the Grand Cherokee was the development of Quadra-Trac system with permanent all-time four-wheel assistance. This was optional on all models. Low-range required by using a manual shift lever for all your three systems.

The Quadra-Coil suspension was standard and featured a solid axle multi-link coil spring design. By allowing the locating arms to positively control axle positions the handling attributes were improved. The rear suspension has 4 trailing arms with two coil springs per side. Like its XJ counterpart, the Quadra-Link front suspension was carried over.

The redesigned WJ 1999 Grand Cherokee shared just 127 parts that boasts of predecessor (mostly fasteners). The spare tire was relocated coming from a region of the cargo compartment to inside the given floor. The two of them heavy pushrod V8 engines were replaced by Chrysler's then-new PowerTech. New V8 engine produced less torque when compared to old pushrods, but was lighter, offered better miles per gallon, and provided similar on road performance figures (the 23-gallon fuel tank was replaced with a primary of a 20.5-gallon capacity). The Inline 6 engine was also updated more than 10 years ago. A redesign of a bunch of intake manifold added 10 horsepower (7.5 kW). While other Jeep vehicles used the Mopar 5 x 4.5 bolt circle, this was the first one Jeep following on from the 1987 Chrysler buyout to take delivery of a wider bolt pattern: - 5 x 5.

A notable feature for sale in this generation was the automatic four wheel drive option called Quadra-Drive, which employed the fresh new Venture Gear NV247 transfer case. This two-speed chain-driven transfer case relies on a gerotor, a clutch pack coupled to a whole hydraulic pump, to transfer torque relating to the front and rear axles. The transfer case contains three modes, 4-All Time, Neutral, and 4-Lo. In 4-All Time, 100% of torque is sent pertaining to the rear axle in normal conditions. In case your rear axle starts spinning at about a higher rate when compared to front axle, hydraulic pressure builds up included in the gerotor and results in the clutch pack to progressively transfer torque to the front axle until both axles come back to the same thing speed. Neutral mode is intended for towing the vehicle. In 4-Lo, the front and rear axles are locked together through a 2.72 reduction gear ratio. The NV247 transfer case is mated to front and back axles containing Jeep's Vari-Lok differentials. Vari-Lok differentials also make use of a gerotor to transfer torque between the wheels on either region of the axle. The most important selling point of Quadra-Drive could be that the combined transfer case and progressive locking differentials in each axle could automatically control traction between all four wheels. However, only the center differential may possibly be permanently locked, and only in 4Lo. The Quadra-Trac II system included the NV247 transfer case with the standard open front and rear differentials.

The 45RFE and 545RFE automatic transmission along at the WJ was notable. It included three planetary gear sets in lieu of the two normally used in a very four-speed automatic. This gave it six theoretical speeds, and also it who have been the first one six-speed transmission ever produced in volume, nevertheless it really was programmed to only use five of these ratios. Four were put to use in upshifts, who has a different second gear for downshifts. Although five with all the six ratios were used, Chrysler decided they would call it a "4-speed automatic". In 2001, the programming was changed to work with all six ratios. Instead of a have six forward gears, the transmission was programmed to act to be a five-speed as a result of the alternate second gear for downshifts. The rpm at 70 mph (110 km/h) on a 545RFE is 2000 rpm, 200 rpm less than the 45RFE programming. 1999 and 2000 model year WJ owners is sure to offer their 45RFE transmission's programming flashed to enable the extra gear as both transmissions are physically the same identical. The 42RE 4-speed automatic remained the transmission just for the Inline 6 engine. It had slight changes originating from a previous model Grand Cherokee.

The interior have also been completely redesigned in 1999. The redesign allowed for larger rear doors, as well as space for rear passengers. Controls for various such things as headlights, heated seats, and rear wiper were moved to more convenient locations. The electronic Vehicle Information center was moved from below the radio to above the windshield, and was standard on all 2000 and up models. Limited models included automatic dual-zone heating and cooling. A 10 CD-Changer has also been available by using an Infinity Audio package.

In conjunction with Jeep's UniFrame construction, Daimler Chrysler partnered with Porsche to help promote strengthen the frame. He did this carried out on reduce NVH. UniFrame is a very unusual construction scheme, it incorporates the many strength and durability of your local body-on-frame construction straight into a unitized construction. With the help of stiffness and rigidity to all of the structure, they enhanced the ride and strengthened the network of steel beams, rails and pillars (or "safety cage") that surround and protect occupants. Far more than 70 percent of your new underbody is high-strength steel. All Jeep Grand Cherokees feature UniFrame construction. The Grand Cherokee received a minor facelift for 2004 including round fog lamps, a lower front fascia and a new body-color matched inset grille design.
