Check pcm for codes. check ckp position sensor. thats crankshaft. theres a u-tube video for testing. then the cam position sensor (distrib pickup) if you have no experience... just understanding the book will take much self study. better let the scantool guys help you at the jeep dealer. their scan tool is not duplicated in the aftermarket and guess fixing is expensive. you may find poor connector fit, tsb part updates , and pcm issues to weed through before this is over. corrosion, dried up and cooked wire harness isssues. corrosion and intermittant connections. the age of this vehicles harness tells me its likely to be like the last one i had (with a 4.0L.) pcm was fried. 02sensors shorted, harness repairs, plugged injectors. all due to age and neglect and abuse. so after those 2 sensors pass the mv and ground tests you will have to look to the pcm for your switching. thats when having the scan tool will come into play.

SOURCE: 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee dies while driving

If the ignition turns on and dies while driving, you might have a clogged idle air control valve. The valve is located in the throtle body, just below the air intake hose. Locate the idle air control valve, un plug the connector, unscrew it (you will need star screw driver) and next clean it using an electronic contact cleaner spray, I use 3M for that. Next, make sure all cleaning liquid inside is gone (it evaporates quickly) and re assemble it. This should solve your problem once for all.

you need to check the fuel pressure,and did you mean you replaced the distributor or just the rotor because inside the distributor is a pickup plate that some times causes this also 02 sensor can cause this.is your check engine light on if so go to chain auto parts store they usually read your codes for free.

Fuel, fire and exhaust. Pull a plugwire and check for spark. If it is firing check fuel system for pressure.

Try gently tapping the starter motor with a hammer or bar. There may be a bad contact in the sollenoid or the starter motor brushes worn to their limit. Tapping may give you a tempory fix if the problem lies in the starter motor.

I have 1996 jeep grand cherokee limited. its not starting.


Does it crank? IF it does check to see if you have spark at the plugs. If you don't have spark then the problem could be a crank sensor.
