Question about 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

My jeep at times won't start, then 20 minutes later starts right up, also stalls.

There are times when my jeep won't start, almost like it's not getting fuel. It also stalls at times. I took it to a mechanic and they said it could be the computer. Is this possible, and what would the cost be?

I have had alot of Jeeps with crankshaft position sensor problems that cause this same sort of problem. What happens is the engine computer uses info from the crankshaft position sensor to tell the car when to have ignition spark and also when to give it fuel. Not exactly sure this is the fix but could help you to figure this out.It could be the computer but I haven't seen many of them go bad.

Sounds like a relay or coil failing.
To proceed you would need to find out if you are loosing spark to the plugs or fuel pressure to the injectors when it won't start.

Car stalling out and bot starting after being driven for awhile.


mcdevito75 Here, It"s possible the ignition Module is going bad, no way to test and if so, one day the car will not start at all.----------It can also be a vapor loc, wher the fuel is evaporating before it reaches the cylinders. Best Bet, have your local shop check both these items.

1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Stalls out,engine quits running


since its a 1997 your jeep has EFI, electronic fuel injection. The most probable reason for your troubles would be the injectors or a problem with the computer controling them, not allowing enough gas to be pushed into the cylinder causing stalling or lack of power, also too much gas iin the cylinder can lead to back firing and stalling. This would also explain the reason it takes so long to start back up some times, all the excess gas in the cylinder is flooding the motor and u have to wait till the gas disipates till the engine will turn over.
