The below is from my girlfriend, about her 1994 Grand Cherokee Laredo, 100,000 miles:
Driving out to see my BF this afternoon I noticed when I accelerated it hesitated a bit. I didn’t think anything of it so I let it go. Driving home was another story. I was about 5 miles from home coming up to a red light and I started to brake, the light turned green and I hit the accelerator and I got no juice, I got across the highway and started to brake and the brakes locked up, the steering wheel locked up and then I lost all power. I got the Jeep to stop (right at the exit to a train station ) I tried to turn it back on and got no juice. I just got a new battery about 3 weeks ago. I called my BF, then I called 911 so someone could help get me out of the way since I was stuck in the middle of the road right outside the railroad station.
Officer asked me to try to crank the engine again, asked if I had gas (have 1/2 tank) and then got me pushed into a spot until I can get a tow to my house in the morning.
The car has been fine, I never put “off” gas in, try not to let the gas get below half a tank.
I don’t know what the issue could be and if anyone here can help a girl out I’d very much appreciate it.
Any tips? Thanks in advance.
