How can I find out if the recalls on my Jeep Cherokee grand Laredo 2000 have been taken care of. I bought it used from a car dealer in 2012. I am unable to get any results from the dealer. Thank you.

As with many other xj owners, my cylinder head is cracked due to the defective 0331 head. I bought the Jeep about 3 years ago, and about a year ago coolant started leaking into the oil. I talked with several mechanic friends and the head fleet mechanic at work told me the cracked head is extremely common. I was stranded on the side of the road, had to have the vehicle towed, and it sits as a giant paperweight in my garage as I cannot afford a new engine. I bought the vehicle with 122000 miles and have never taken it off road, modified it, or traveled more than 60 miles in a day. It has never overheated until the head cracked. Now I am looking at an enormous bill that my family cannot afford. I fail to see how so many vehicles can be affected and there is still no recall.

The contact owns a 2000 Jeep Cherokee. While driving 55 mph, there was a loss of transmission power. The vehicle hesitated excessively, but the engine continued to operate. The warning indicators illuminated on the instrument panel. The vehicle was not taken to an authorized dealer at that time. On a separate occasion, the check engine and transmission warning indicators illuminated on the instrument panel. The indicators remained lit until the engine was turned off. Immediately following, the engine shut off; however, the vehicle restarted within twenty minutes. The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic twice for identical failures. The crank sensor and fuel filter were replaced; however, there were no resolutions. Currently, the vehicle is being repaired for the malfunctions. The contact was concerned of the safety risk involved. The failure mileage was 65,325 and current mileage was 65,475. Updated 11-25-08 updated 11/26/08.
