Before you waste tons of time and money.

1. Buy a ODB II Scanner or get a mechanic to scan it.
The Error Code will tell you what is wrong.

2. The most faulty parts are the Crank Position Sensor ($60-70)
or the PCM ($200).

I had this problem and my mechanic gave it a tune up and changed oxygen sensor. my jeep would seem to die on corners and lose power steering. Scary!

I hav a 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee and it engin just dies out while driving


Get some "dielectric" grease and put it on your ecm contacts. Also clean your "grounds" very well. Mine was located on the passenger side of the engine block on my 97' Grand cherokee laradoe. Mine did the same thing yours was. These jeeps are a wiring nightmare for some stupid reason, and this will be your least expensive fix before you start replacing EVERYTHING like i did!. Best of luck!

97 jeep cherokee cuts out when you step on the gas. after a while it will not run at all. after it cools down it will start right up. Any ideas??


After spending Hundreds of $ and hours on trying to figure this out we finally broke down and went to the scrap yard and got a PCM for this car. It only cost about $30. Wish we would have done this a year ago!!!!

Likely the ignition system is shutting down. Code tests must be done as well as individual component tests, using a digital multi-meter and a manual such as chilton or haynes as a guide. The small explosion you hear likely is from a small amount of unburned fuel entering the hot exhaust and exploding right after the ignition is off. Once you fix the cause of shutdown that will disappear. The main items I'd test first are the crank sensor, cam sensor and the ignition switch itself, any of which can cause a shutdown. Also make sure the fuel pump isn't getting hot and turning itself off.

If you have zero oil pressure thats a BAD sign, first have a mechanic check what the engines actual oil pressures are.
