    Yeah I almost JUNKED it but I like looked at the other comments REDNECKMD18 was giving and they were all the same. So I put a crank sensor on it and it's been fine since! Thanks...

    my 99 cherokee shuts off while I drive. It doen't do it all the time as I drive it shut off then restart by itself. As I come to a light it will turn off again and will have to restart it. Does it sounds like the same problem guys being the crank sensor, plus the check engine light does not come on. Serg70

is this petrol or diesel.if petrol check your plugs are getting a spark. if no spark then check the ignition leads from your cap going to your spark plugs use a spark plug tester.if it is a diesel check your fuel filter it has a drain on the bottom of it may have a small amount of water .to drain from it. i take it you know how to remove air in the system if no .come back on .i can talk you through the procedure. this apply to any diesal engine.

My jeep grand Cherokee will shut off and all the gauge on dashboard turn on


It could be the O2 sensor and the camshaft sensor. I have the same Jeep and having the same issues. Auto Parts stores have the sensor, just need to find a good mechanic that wont over charge you. When you do, ask then to run the codes to make sure.

I have a 1999 grand jeep it cut off when im


I just had this problem on my 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Once the engine got warm, after about 15 to 20 minutes, the car would just die at random times, sometimes when doing 40 mph and sometimes at idle.

I ended up changing the Crankshaft Position Sensor and it cleared the issue.

Hit the shifter on the top with a good hit to push it down, sometimes the "T" handle will come up.
The handle comes up and out if you have to replace the bezel.

1999 GRAND CHEROKEE CUTS OFF


Sounds like you both are having problems with your coil packs.  When they start to go bad and get hot, they will shut down on you for a while until they cool back down enough to start working again.  They will get progressively worse as time goes on.  I believe that you can take the coil packs to AutoZone and have them tested for free.  Let me know if you have any other questions, but I think this will take care of you both.  Thanks for rating my response and for using FixYa!

Having trouble keeping my 98 jeep grand cherokee running


i recommend cleaning the throttle plates. they are located unter the intake hose form the engine to the air filter housing. if you open them with the engine not runniong you will see they will be covered in carbon. use a good carb cleaner and a rag to wipe them clean
