How long has my Jeep Grand Cherokee been having issues?

Anyone who knows me knows I’ve had problems with my 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4.0 6-cyl for what seems like ages. It’s been having issues (well, one issue in particular) since at least fall of last year. I’ve only owned the car for 5 years now, and I didn’t want to give up on it just yet–most of the time it ran great.

What to do if your Jeep Grand Cherokee stalls?

When it started to hiccup and occasionally stall again, as well as retightening the bracket, I also blew the connectors clean with compressed air and sprayed them with WD40… no problems for about 6 weeks. Then I found a more permanent solution by blowing my head gasket, so it’s off to the junk yard and no more stalling problem!
