    thank you very much I've got it pointed down to either a vaccuum hose leak or the fuel filter thank you for your time

  • hhic83 May 24, 2009

    i'll be changing the fuel filter in the morning it's not the vaccuum hose I will let you know if it works I was thinking it was just a small leak in the hose but it shuts off before its running temp (plus i couldn't find a leak any where so...) but the car is at almost 50k miles and I was told thats about the time it'll need to be changed. no it didn't start when I sprayed

  • hhic83 May 24, 2009

    well it's starting but... it just stays on for so long and then cuts out would that be a spark problem?

  • hhic83 May 24, 2009

    i don't believe the pump is staying on when it stalls, and when it does stall i have to wait about 30 minutes before it starts back up but yeah it does have spark when in no start

  • hhic83 May 27, 2009

    so its not the pump its not the filter no hoses really..... its not anything we have spoke of I had to get diagnostic done on it and it ended up being a computer for the car went out and luckily is under warranty so is being fixed for free I told them while there at it to give me some new spark plugs and do a tune up while they are at it thank you so much for all of your time and effort in helping fix my broken car you were very helpful

You need to isolate the problem. If it starts when you spray carb cleaner into the throttle body while cranking then problem is in fuel system.(pump, pump relay, filter or fuse) If not, then look into ignition system. Use any manual to get specific testing instructions and do not buy anything till you verify by testing that you really need that part or it can get unnecessarily expensive.
If you need more info on anything, just ask, but at the point you are at, careful testing will tell you far more than anyone here can tell you.

    Unless it's a very large vacuum hose, generally it won't shut the car off...more likely fuel filter. (unless the hose happens to go to an important control unit). I take it that it does start when you spray?

  • Richard Scordino May 24, 2009

    If you have 50k on filter , change it But, if it didn't start, you likely have a spark problem

  • Richard Scordino May 24, 2009

    Is the pump stayng on or is it turning off when it stalls? Does it start right back up again when it stalls? does it have spark when in "no start"

  • Richard Scordino May 24, 2009

    If the pump isnt running when it shuts down then the pump is bad (they get hot and stop working, then cool off and work again for a short time)

1995 jeep grand cheerokee laredo 6 cyl. randomly dies then takes anywhere from five minutes to hours to restart

The only component I know of, that shuts a Jeep off while idling or driving 40mph down the road, is a bad crank sensor. Usually when it starts going bad, it will sporadically shut off, like yours does. Eventually, it will just die and the Jeep will not start at all. Have it tested and replaced, if necessary.

My Samurai wont start . It is getting gas to the carb and spark to the plugs. Was driving down the road and just died. Getting power everywhere. Starter turns but the motor just wont fire up.

I had a similar issue with my '86....driving home, made a left turn, and engine shut down. Coasted to a stop, and had a look under the hood. Cranked over fine, had gas, spark, but no go! After a tow home, and more in-depth investigating, turned out that the timing belt had broken! The older engine has no interference between valves and pistons, so installing a new belt got 'er going again for about $40. You can look down though the oil fill port or loosen the upper screws on the belt cover to confirm that the valves are/are not moving when the engine cranks.
