1999 jeep cherokee just turns off while driving

I was on the freeway and it started to power down I pumped the throttle several times and it picked back up. It is continuing to worsen, it turned off twice within 5 miles it started right back up, however, even after hours of sitting I am having difficulty starting it.

    The jeep gives no sign that its going to die I would not even know it turns off except the power sterring is gone. Where is the location of the flow meter, is it possible that it is the fuel filter?

It could be the crank shaft position sensor. my cherokee would die randomly and start right back up. as soon as i replaced the cps the problem stopped

Ok - i might be able to help you out . when you say it starts to power down what really do you mean . if pumping the throttle makes it a bit better then probably its got issues with injectors or with the air flow meter . also check if the engine computer is logging any codes . if you need more help feel free to ask

1999 Cherokee starts but won't keep running without giving it throttle.


Assuming everything is working correctly, you may have to drive it up to 50 miles for the computer to relearn the basic perimeters.
I think you can also turn the key on, open the throttle to wide open, then close it 2 or 3 times to reset the memory in the computer.
Not sure about Jeeps.

hey there, artismo here! I have a similar problem with the idle fluctuating, and the trans down shifting itself at light throttle, which is the lock-up in the converter getting the wrong signal ? from the ECM.

My 95 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo will not start.


cj2176 is correct, we need a lttle more info. Sounds like it will need a new fuel pump or something related to it. Since it starts on starting fluid it has compression and air and spark, just no fuel. Fuel pumps can just stop working while driving, and if not working obviously will not start. No caodes will be set for a fuel pump not working. If it cranks but does not start have someone pound on the bottom of the fuel tank with a fist or small rubber mallet lightly (don't damage the tamk) while your cranking the engine. If it starts, the fuel pump module in the tank is bad.

1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee stalling and not starting


Since you've replaced many of the usual suspects (fuel pump etc.) you might want to look into testing or simply replacing the crankshaft position sensor or the camshaft position sensor. If you intermittently lose one the these signals it would cause the problem you describe.

1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee : Replaced Water Pump and Drive Belt now Jeep won't start?


When you replaced the Water Pump, did you replace the Timing Belt? Any time you replace a Water Pump you have to replace the timing belt because it stretches out. If you did not then most likely your Engine is out of time and there for will not start, but it will turn over. hope this helps, good luck.
