Question about 1991 Jeep Cherokee Briarwood

1 Answer

Engine stalls after running for 3 to 5 seconds

I have a 1991 Jeep Cherokee 4.0 litre and it starts right up but then stalls within 3 to 5 seconds. I am wondering if it could be a coil or maybe some sensor. Thanks for any and all help!

Change fuel filter, check air filter, clear air intake manifold with spray solution you can get from auto supply store. If that doesn't help have fuel pressure checked

Jeep Unlimited starts but then stalls immediately


The accelerator is the gas pedal...how are you cranking the gas pedal in park? and, if it only stays running when you are doing this how are you "ready to go"? Was the battery tested? if the engine turns over (cranks) when you turn the key, likely there is nothing wrong with it. If you can drive it after doing whatever you do to get it running, it's doubtful that the ignition switch is bad. If it runs well after you get it started, it has nothing to do with spark plugs.
Fuel pump may be draining back and loosing pressure but you need to have pressure tests done to verify that. If you cannot crank the engine in neutral, I'd check the neutral safety switch....it should start in either park or neutral. The pump and switch are about $200 apiece...good idea to test them before spending money not to fix the problem!!!
Hope I got this right...your post is a bit confusing.

Jeep stalls after 20 mins of runtime


Possible partially plugged filter, but also check ign coil...it could be "breaking down" when it gets hot!!!
Was distributor a guess, or was there a problem there? When it stalls, is there spark? Does it re-start and run normally after that?

2000 jeep cherokee starts then stalls in approx 3 sec 4.0 has new crank sensor


I am going to assume that it will not run even if you push on the accelerator pedal?
Can you install or attach an old timing light to the spark plug wires, turn it one and try to start it. The light should flash with the engine running, but if it shuts off at time of engine die, and the engine is still spinning, you are losing spark, My suggestion is the cranks shaft sensor on bell housing.
Second, install a pressure gage on the test port on the fuel rail and watch it as you start the engine, fuel pressure should not drop as the engine dies, if it does, the pump is not working correctly. There are two modes of power to that pump, one to start and timed, for only a few seconds to prime the system, and one to run continuously. Find the wires going to the pump at the tank. Connect test light to those wires and watch what happens during crank and at stall, You should not have the pump shut off and the engine dies.
If you have spark, and fuel pump working, when did you last change the filter,,but I put that LAST.
It has to be one or the other of these.
Good Luck
