I have a 1993 Jeep Cherokee Country. Just had the spark

I have a 1993...

I have a 1993 Jeep Cherokee Country. Just had the spark plugs and fuel filter replaced. Not sure what brand of plugs. Afterwards, my Jeep runs a little rough especially when backing up. It did not do this before the spark plug change.

Mechanic's Assistant: Is the fuel filter an external one, or is it inside the tank?

I believe it is external.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Cherokee yourself? What have you tried so far?

I generally take it to a garage repair shop. I have not personally tried anything so far b/c I suspected that it might be a timing issue (?) and I am not experienced with doing that sort of thing. I just wanted to know what else to possibly look for and I will do the things that I know how to do myself.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Not so far.

I'm not going to be doing any work on my Jeep at this time, I would just like to know if there are any suggestions for me to check when I do.

Got it!

Here is a list of the most likely possible causes..

  • Faulty new tune up components
  • Air/vacuum leaks
  • Throttle position sensor
  • Idle air control motor
  • engine speed sensor inside distributor (and possibly even crankshaft position sensor
  • Oxygen sensor
