Have you cleaned the throttle valve and the idle speed control valve, how about the cleaning the fuel injectors? not a can of cleaner but a professional cleaning at the dealer? These three items can all cause your problem and as a pro tech it is where I would start. One more question have you checked the OBD 2 system for trouble codes?

You are absolutely correct

Dealers will sell you as may services as
possible,then on the 4th time there,start
to diagnose your initial drivability issues

You most likely had misfires for years ,and
now the O2 Sensors and Converters are ruined

I don't dislike dealers, but have never recommended
them for the last 46 years. I learned real earlier in
life about that.

MY 2005 Jeep grand \cherokee limited has been


the reason the oil light and power steering are on and gone is that the engine stalled out,which means no oil pressure,and without the engine running you have no power steering.when you say dealer do mean a jeep dealer?
if no current codes were in the computer, did they go into the history of codes to see if anything was there?
if it is a soft code which is one that will reset it's self when you cycle the key off to on,they won't find a current code if you pull over and turn the key off.May be you could let one of the mechanics drive it home 1 night and return it in the morning,that way he can drive it with the scan tool hooked up,you will have to be aware of what speeds you were doing,was you at a red light,going up hill,using the brake,you need him to know exactly what you were doing so he can drive the same way to duplicate the problem.
also have them check any TBS's for this problem,
Technical Service Bulletins, from Chrysler and Jeep .

Car shuts off while driving


***

Don't know if this has anything to do with your problem, but it could be worth a try.
My 2001 turbo had a similar problem when it was low on oil.
The oil light never came on, but it was low enough to cause it to stall.
Seems there has to be enough oil circulating on the camshaft (I think they told me the camshaft, now it has been so long that I am not positive).
Either way, a quart and a half of oil solved my stalling problem.
And the problem got bad enough before I had it towed to the VW shop that it wouldn't start, very much like it had a dead battery or an electrical (starter/ignition) problem, but i still had plenty of power for horn, lights, radio, etc.

Hope this helps!

Peace,

Rob
