Question about 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee

96 grand cherokee cranks but wont start and stalls sometimes

I have a 96 grand cherokee that sometimes decides not to start. I can drive it for a month or two with no problem and then one day i will try and start it and it cranks but won't start. Sometimes it might take 2 minutes before it finally starts and other times it might take a few hours. Then it could be fine again for a while or it might do it again a few hours later. Also there are times when I am driving that the rpm's will drop to zero but the car is still on and a few seconds later it will catch and be fine. Other times it won't catch and the car will stall and won't start for 10 min to 2 hours. Can anyone give me an idea where to start?

1999 jeep grand cherokee laredo just stops while driving


Does it stall at idle or going down the highway? Does it restart right away? How long since a tune-up? Are there any applicable trouble codes? Check the cam and crank sensor. Could be other issues?

Sometimes the oil drive housing can cause a sync problem between the crank and cam sensors?

1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee will suddenly stall and sometimes stall then shut off while I am driving. When it stalls I will push the gas multiple times and it does nothing for the first few times. After...


I don't think the fuel pump. Sounds like the crank position sensor. That, or the camshaft position sensor. The computer uses the cam position sensor to know when to pulse the injectors. The crank position sensor provides the information for spark timing. If the sensor fails, the computer won't signal the ignition module to create spark from the coils. Crank sensor failure is pretty common on earlier jeeps.
