Question about 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee
And the goes doesn't do it all the time what causes this its like it runs out of gas for a sec or two and then takes back off and is fine for a day or two kenny
I just had the same problem on my 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee 6 cyl. Mine was the Camshaft Position Sensor. Only available at the dealership and cost $85.00 at the parts counter. Easy to install - remove the distributor cap and rotor. Sensor is a flat disc sitting in distributor with wire running to connection at side of engine. Remove the sensor and install the new one in same position. try it you'll like it. If not then go for the Crankshaft position sensor. Go to the auto parts store and also buy a new distributor cap and rotor while you are at it. GOOD LUCK!

Engine stalls cold or RPM
fluctuates at idle up and down or dies near idle.
This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve but always run a OBD2 fault code as well as the cleaning procedure. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control. If the above cleaning doesn't cure your issues you need to have the computer controlled automatic idle speed control system diagnosed and repaired by a dealer or electronic engine control repair shop.
