Customer Question
When overtaking or at...

When overtaking or at high revs, there is power loss and engine light comes on. this is preceded by a rattling sound in the engine compartment. At one time the engine could start and idle but would not respond to pressing the accelerator. please help

Mechanic's Assistant: Where exactly do you think the noise is coming from? And how long has this been going on?

When it started doing this 3 months ago I towed it home and its been parked since. the engine runs well but often the engine light comes on

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Jeep?

I think the noise is coming from someplace external to the engine though

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your Jeep?

Its a 2003 Grand Cherokee Overland.

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

I have not done anything yet. If its a simple issue I would like to attend to it myself

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

I thought the problem was caused by a dirty TPS but I can not find where this is on this car. does it have one?

I have asked around about what you may be referring to. I took the car to one garage where they hooked a gadget to it which pointed to a problem with the TPS.
Customer reply replied 28 days ago
The problems I am having are very much similar to that attended to by Greg UK Auto Mechanic. My car is South African assembled 2003 Grand Cherokee Overland. Gas fumes in the cabin, squirky steering, engine light, one other problem in that of a hard knock on the front suspension on hitting the smallest of road humps or bumps.
