It's probably just the points.

Timing belt won't cause a problem unless:

1.) it's cogged a tooth and that is very unlikely
2) the belt snapped and then you would have bent valves and a world of financial pain.

Your mechanics have had a lend of you.

Battery dies while driving


Check the battery while the car is running. If the voltage isn't 14.3 or close the alternator is bad or going bad and not charging. Replace as needed.

Died and wont crank


If it died and won't crank, sounds like you lost power to something.
Does the warning lights come on when you turn the key on ?
Got headlights ?
A mechanic would check for voltage at the starter and work back from there.

Does it turn over really easy and fast? If so you have a broken timing belt.

My 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Will die going down the road. Sometimes it starts back up without me touching the key.other times I have to wait a few minutes before it will crank again.Any suggestions? Thank...


I've got to be reading this incorrectly...You are driving, the engine turns off...you pull off the road? And then without touching the key the engine re-starts, but you haven't touched the key? Or, sometimes you need to sit there for a few minutes and then turn the key to start it?
