Question about Cars & Trucks
Happened twice in two days. First, engine died as I was pulling into a parking space after driving 10 miles in the morning. Then, engine died in traffic on freeway onramp, been driving for about 45 minutes. Both times, my foot was on the brake. Mechanic does not see anything wrong with it. Suggested changing all spark plugs, resetting electrical and changing all fluids for $200. Did not agree to do it since they don't even know what's wrong with it exactly. Please help.
Have him check the fuel pump. you might be losing pressure over time causing the vehicle to die and after you let it sit the pressure is building up

most of times stalling problems are related with crankshaft sensors have your crank sensor replace and see if this will take care of your problem

since its a 1997 your jeep has EFI, electronic fuel injection. The most probable reason for your troubles would be the injectors or a problem with the computer controling them, not allowing enough gas to be pushed into the cylinder causing stalling or lack of power, also too much gas iin the cylinder can lead to back firing and stalling. This would also explain the reason it takes so long to start back up some times, all the excess gas in the cylinder is flooding the motor and u have to wait till the gas disipates till the engine will turn over.

replace the front oil seal. first i would clean the engine with purple power (degrease etc.) then look at the engine and make sure the leak is not coming from above like possibly the valve cover gasket or from the oil sending unit. try to tighten the bolts on the valve cover and even the oil pan. you never know, you may get lucky. i don't know where you are but front seals are cheap but the labor on the job is what costs you.

if you notice it when it is wet out then i would do a tune -up but if not i would check the fuel injectors because they are a very very common problem with these years of cars. i do them all the time.
please give me a repair history and i will try to help.
