Question about 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee
Crank position sensor.If it's a 4.0 its on the bellhousing flange at the back of the block right where block meets trans.It senses the cranks rotation to fire plugs and other stuff.If it goes open when hot or from vibrational fatigue (don't let anyone B.S. you they go bad ALOT!) engine management thinks the engine has stopped and shuts everything down,when engine shuts down the absense of vibration complete it's circuit again and it continues running till it gets in the mood again.Had one of these that made a 250mi.trip then dies and would restart after about 5 min

Two guesses: a bit of water in the fuel tank, a faulty tps, or a loose connection somewhere...oops! thats three! Otherwise, I'd need more specifics and you would have to check codes etc!
