I had a similar problem with my 96 GC and it turned out to be the crank sensor. hopefully this helps a lil too.

You need to change your distributor module . The module gets hot and won't allow it to send spark to the plugs until it cools. Ask a person at your local parts store and they will show you the module and show you how to install it.

What causes water blow back in 1999 4.7 grand cherokee after starting


Sound like a head gasket is leaking. The coolant is leaking from the water jacket through the failed gasket in to the engine crankcase. The "blow back" is caused by the combustion inside the cylinder to leak into the water jacket, pressurizing it.
Drain the oil immediately and do not attempt to run the engine until you have the gasket replaced. Water in the oil will destroy the engine beyond repair.

1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee / Approx. 133,000 miles - Owned since new and very well kept. Only at idle, engine stops working but would start again after 20 min wait, would work fine for a few days and do it...


I would try your pickup coil in your distributor. I would also be checking the o2 sensors. both of these things can cause problems like this and would not set off the check engine light.

My Grand cherokee 4.7 1999 does not run the engine


Likely the sensor involved is the crank position sensor, next in line would be the cam sensor. You could also have a bad fuel pump or pump relay. Crank sensor is on the bellhousing at about 11 o'clock looking from the rear. It is even with the position of the flywheel. cam sensor is inside or is your distributor, depending upon your system. All are expensive so I recommend that you run some tests outlined in haynes, chiltons or other decent repair manuals before changing anything.

Grand cherokee 1999


1. is the engine turning over. If it is then you probably have a timing/fuel problem.

2. If all you get is a click sound and no engine turn over then flat battery could be a starting point.

3.if it starts and runs rough plugs and or plug leads may need looking at. Or maybe fuel injection system.

4.Not enough information to get more specific.
