When i start my 1995 jeep grand cherokee limited V8 5.2l it starts and then dies almost immediately, it did this for about an hour and then started back up again and ran fine for a whole day then again about the same time that it stopped working the previous night it stopped working again please help!
Sounds like a security issue they installed a factory security system which will prevent the vehicle from running unless its reset go to passenger door lock turn key twice it worked for me after chasing other problems for a few hours
If none of those fix the the prob of it not staying running the next option would be the Crankshaft Position Sensor. the exhaust runs right by it and when it get hot it will stop working and make the engine die. once it cools down the engine will start back up. do the door lock thing first. i had both problems but at seperat times.
