    It doesn't always happen seems more like when its cold. When my Jeep warms up it is fine? Thought it was water in my gas but it has been 2 months and lots of dry gas.

You might need a new starter or your fuel pump might have to be replaced

My 1999 Jeep Cherokee Sport acts like its running out of gas all the time stalls when it gets hot it starts back up again when you let it cool for 10 minutes

If it has the 6 cyl engine, a very common problem on higher mileage engines is the crank sensor located in the top of the transmission at the back of the engine on the drivers side

1999 Jeep Sport will not start

It could be your Crank Shaft Sensor. That's what it was on my 99 Cherokee Sport the first time that happened.

My 1999 Cherokee doesnt start

Take off your gas cap and have someone stand there with thier ear at the hole, (no smoking), turn the key to on just before start and they should hear the fuel pump humming. if they dont then try to start. if it doesnt start turn key off and at that instant the pump should be heard again. What i think is happening is your pump is only energizing when you turn the key to off instead of energizing when you turn key on. Its supposed to energize when turning your key on and off. This would explain your second start working and not your first. This can be caused by a bad fuel pump relay switch. Hope this helps. please rate me

96 Jeep Cherokee Sport Hard Starting

The Engine coolant temp sensor would ABSOLUTELY cause a hard start, but don't guess get the codes check again at Auto_Zone to make sure. Another cause of that kind of hard start is a dirty throttle body/ intake manifold. Use INTAKE cleaner and a rag clean the intake esp[eciall in the throttle body area. Good Luck
